I have my car at a Ford Dealership in Denver, but they gave my wife and I an estimate of $560 to put a new fuel pump on it. We are from Laramie, WY (2 hours) away from Denver. But I would like to see if anybody new if that was a reasonable estimate, or if it was too high. I know the fuel pump cost between $80-120 from a parts store. Anybody know of a mechanic close to Thornton or Westminster that is reliable and could do a fuel pump cheaper? Also, I have some basic mechanic knowledge, could I do this repair myself somewhere in N. Denver that has like a public parking lot that would allow me to do this repair if it is small without complaining? Any Suggestions? My wife and I are in Oklahoma till Wednesday Evening, and need our car fixed before we get back to DIA if we are going to pay for someone to fix it. Thanks, Kyle
I have a very good buddy who works in a shop in the western part of Westminster, just south of Broomfield. I don't know how familiar you are, but it is basically off of US-36 and 104th.
The place is called stang auto tech. Their site is http://www.stangautotech.com/ He's the guy at the top left (Brian). I'm not sure how cheap they are, but I know that he'll tell you where a better place to go would be, if they weren't the ones. I don't know that he'd be able to do anything price-wise, but you could mention my name (Travis) if you'd like, for whatever it'd be worth.
