Probably around $350-400 at a stealer, $250-300 at and indy. $150 if you pull up your backseat, unscrew a few screws, and change it yourself.

See this DIY for getting at the fuel pump

The fuel pump is part of the sender on the left. You only need to unscrew a collar and unclip a harness and the pump pulls out.



Check Pellican for parts

I paid 500. I have owned 10 cars and never had this happen. My mechanic thinks it could have been the severe cold we have been experiencing in Chicago.

The stealership closest to me quoted me at $1100 for a fuel pump replacement. Anyone else have a dealer quote them such a ridiculous amount??
