Changing Fuel Pump Assembly Soon - Best Brand/How To's?
2002 4.0L TJ
Going to be changing my Fuel Pump Assembly soon, was wondering what brand people have had luck with. I work at a parts store and can get an Airtex Fuel Pump Module Assembly for cheaper than anywhere else due to discount but its not necessarily the price Im concerned about, I just want something good that will work, and last me a long time.
Also I have never done this job before but I am assuming it is not that difficult, anything I should be aware of and extra tools I might need? Thanks
Just replaced mine about 2 weeks ago and went with a Mopar unit. The original one lasted 11 years, so that's hard to beat.
While you have the tank down, inspect, even replace all the evap lines and fuel filler & filler vent tubes while you're at it.
The only issue I had is getting the fuel filler and filler vent tubes up and squeezed in-between the the frame and tub.
I went the Airtex Route Results not good Hard start issues that I didn't have before lived with that, At 8 months old pump failed with out warning & left Me in the middle of a busy 4 lane highway,Replaced with a Bosch from Carquest & the Bosch pump had a Mopar Part tag on it,So far it has been great no more hard start.
Be sure to pull your fuel pump relay under the hood and try to start it a few time so you will
Clear all the fuel that is in the lines. If not expect to get a bath with gas when you remove the fuel line from the tank
