127,988 miles

Santa Rosa, CA

Fuel pump leak

A hairline crack has developed in the plastic housing at the top of the fuel pump, allowing gasoline to leak. Gas filled the compartment where the fuel pump controller is seated.

The fuel pump controller's silicone insulation was destroyed by the gasoline, exposing the circuit board.

Estimated cost to repair:

1 ea. Fuel pump  $481.97
1 ea. Fuel pump control unit, with gasket  $147.97

Parts total, including tax:  $680.34

Labor unknown at this point.

I have not yet decided on a course of action.
