Fuel Pump Issue on a Mazda 3s 2.3
My fuel pump just went out on my 2006 mazda3s 2.3 and I had a couple questions:
1) What's the average cost of a replacement fuel pump?
2) How difficult is it to replace?
3) What is the average cost to have it replaced by a mechanic?
The reason I ask is because I had my regular mechanic have a look at it and he is quoting $900.00 to replace it. He has never over charged me in the past and is usually a bit lower in price than other mechanics in the area, but this seems a bit excessive. When I had the fuel pump replaced in my old honda accord it was only $450.00 or so. I know there are differences between cars and was just wondering what justified such a large amount. Are mazdas that difficult to work on?
Any advice is welcome! Thanks!
