2003 VUE 3.0L
Default Fuel Pump Replacement

Anyone have a write-up on replacing the fuel pump on an 2003 3.0 AWD?

Gas gauge is not reading accurately. In the past Chevron Techron fixed it, but this year I have been through 6 treatments with no luck.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I just did this on my FWD, it was easy, 4 bolts and 5 connectors, but I saw that AWD will be a much bigger PITA.
New pump is $350 new + $175 for the secondary. You can get a used set for $100 (ish) for both or just get fuel level sending unit replacements.
You can also take it apart and just clean the connectors and hope for the best but with AWD I'd at least replace the sending units.

Thanks for the info and PDFs! I noticed that they mention to remove the drive shaft on the AWD model... I've had it off before and it wasn't too much of a pain but without a lift, not much fun either.

I did mine tank on the jack stands, just had enough space.
Mine is FWD so did not have to pay with the drive shaft. Good luck
