Default Aura 3.5 2007 fuel pump replacement questions

1. What is the typical cost of labor for this job and how much time it takes to replace it in a shop (not at home)

2. Is there anyone here from South Bay area in LA - to recommend a place to go to have that pump replaced locally? (I don't want to go to a dealer because of the insane cost of this job.)

3. Where is the best place to buy the new pump assembly itself?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Not sure how close this Repairpal estimate might be...There is an option to find a mechanic too. Never used it, but for sure get prices from a few places.

Here is a video detailing the steps required to replace the pump assembly...

Thank you for the detailed information. I bought the AC Delco pump MU1642 at Rock Auto and replaced it for $200. Problem is - the gas mileage after this job deteriorated. I must have another leak elsewhere. It was getting 17.2 MPG prior and now it is 16.58 MPG. It's terrible.

EPA states18 mpg city and 28 mpg highway for '07 Aura 3.5L with automatic transmission.

Auras replaced L300's after '05.

My '03 L300 3.0L with automatic is supposed to get 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. All local driving has varied from as low as 15 to a high of 19 mpg, averaging closer to 16.. Never got past 25 mpg on long highway drives with cruise control set on 73 mph.

Is this mileage calculated or from the Average MPG from the DIC?

Either way, the loss of a 3/4 of an MPG is not that bad. This could be a result of different fuel mixes, every batch of fuel is different and even more so for the winter time mixes.

When I replaced my pump, I should have gotten the ACDelco MU1642, but none of the parts houses had it but one had the Delphi FG1384 in stock. It functions as well as it needs to be however the fuel level sensor reads partially correct, but I've adjusted my mindset to go by my trip meter instead of my gauge.
