How hard is to change the pump assembly

My car has 110500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Usually a fuel pump can be replaced by getting under the vehicle and locating the fuel tank. Once the tank has been located, you should notice two or three metal straps that hold it in place against the chassis of the vehicle. These straps will have bolts on both sides that secure them to the vehicle. You will want to remove these bolts to lower the fuel tank down. You will then want to disconnect the hose that goes from the filler neck to the tank. Once this has been done, you can remove the electrical connectors and fuel lines that go from the fuel pump to the engine and PCM. Next, you can then remove the fuel pump for replacement. If you are in doubt about this repair, I would recommend enlisting the help of a professional to replace the fuel pump for you.

It's possible that your coolant is leaking or the sensor was faulty out of the box. I would recommend having a certified mechanic diagnose your overheating issue, and verify that there are no other leaks or problems.
