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 product is cost friendly and really easy to use so far I have not had any problems so far it has been 2 weeks since the part was installed I would highly recommend this product to any one that is in the market for a fuel pump is is the first replacement on my 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante and it fits very well just like the original part that was taken off I'm happy to say that it is budget friendly and I have fallen in love with Advance Auto online ordering with in store pick up I will probably not use any other Auto part store unless they happen not to have my part

                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! 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.

                            For replacing this Airtex Electric Fuel Pump -part# E8229 on your 2005 Hyundai Sonata GLS, You have to lift the rear seat and remove a blanking panel then you can disconnect the fuel lines and wiring. Remove the screws from the pump unit then remove the pump and split so you can replace the filter, be sure to replace the seals. You would need to use strainer with this fuel pump for validating warranty.

                            Steps to replace the fuel pump: Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable with a wrench. Take out the rear seat cushion by pulling the seat stopper out and lifting the lower cushion up. You can now remove the inspection cover on the passenger side of the vehicle. Disconnect the fuel lines and unplug the fuel pump's electrical harness. Remove the locking ring on the fuel pump assembly with a wrench if your vehicle has all wheel drive. Remove the fuel pump from the fuel tank. Install the new fuel pump into the fuel tank using the items included in the kit. Tighten the locking ring over the fuel pump if your vehicle has all wheel drive. Close the inspection cover and connect the fuel hose and electrical harness. Replace the rear seat and negative battery cable.

                            The Fuel pump on your 1998 Honda Civic EX should be located in the gas tank. You have to remove the rear bottom seat to see an access panel to remove. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto store and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
