My car has 1007665 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. Prior to replacing the fuel pump, you want to be sure it has really failed and thus is the source of whatever difficulty you are having with your vehicle. You may still need an expert to diagnose this. Keep in mind, you may also need a fuel filter and, due to the age of your car, corrosion and deterioration of rubber gasketed parts in the fuel lines might necessitate additional parts during the repair. Please let us know how we, at YourMechanic can assist you with anything, from the diagnosis to the possible replacement of your fuel pump.
