To make matters worse, the Indy I took it to hit me with a $1000 bill. Now my fuel gauge is wacked. Lesson learned the hard way. Mango has me brainwashed for a cooling system refresh, so it's his fault.
Wow that's a crazy low mileage/age failure. In your thread, I guessed $500 was your total bill--it was $1,000?! Whoa! Yeah the fuel pump is super easy. but when it goes out on you unexpectedly and no parts stores around, you have no choice but to take it in sometimes. Good job definitely do the cooling system.
