    This thing isn't as quiet as the stock pump - if you don't mind the humming noise then this pump will work fine. Also, the rubber seal that fits on the bottom of the pump does not fit into the assembly very well - best to use the old one if possible. If i had to do it over again, i would spend the extra $15-$20 and buy the better brand!!

            The click-n-pull type order we placed was only marred by the fact that the store that supposedly had it did not have one on the shelf. We were able to drive to the next nearest location, which just happens to be the warehouse, and get it so all was good but I had to listen to my husband complain even though we saved 20%.

              Yep, it's a honker. At least in a quiet car, it's noticeably louder than OEM. Still, I had to go with it, because Advance doesn't seem to stock any of the other listed models, just this bottom-of-barrel unit, without ordering and waiting at least a day.

                            Hi Dan, glad to assist you! Yes, you will have to drop the tank to replace the fuel pump on your 2000 Chevrolet Tracker. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                            Hi Dan, glad to assist you! The fuel filter on your Chevy Tracker should be located at the rear of the vehicle near the fuel tank. Remove the fuel cap. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. Disconnect the fuel inlet hose from the fuel filter. Disconnect the fuel outlet hose from the fuel filter. Remove the retaining bolt from the fuel filter bracket. Remove the fuel filter and the bracket from the vehicle. Loosen the fuel filter bracket bolt and remove the fuel filter from the bracket. Install the fuel filter to the fuel filter bracket. Install the fuel filter and the bracket to the vehicle. Secure the fuel filter bracket to the vehicle with the retaining bolt. Reconnect the fuel outlet h to the fuel filter. Reconnect the fuel inlet hose to the fuel filter. Lower the vehicle. Connect the negative battery cable. Start the engine. Inspect for fuel leaks and repair as necessary.
