Q: We are getting a fuel pump replacement on a 2007 gl450 and the dealership is quoting us $2500 this seems unreasonable is it?

asked by on October 01, 2017

We had our car towed to the dealership and they are quoting us $2500 for a fuel pump doesn't that seem a little high?

My car has 110000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Daniel. Thanks for submitting your question today. You are correct - that estimate is outrageous. However, it’s on PAR with typical Mercedes-Benz, BMW or other European OEM dealership repair costs. In support of the dealer, the fuel system on these modern-day Mercedes is incredibly complex, so gaining access to and replacing the fuel pump is quite time consuming. The parts are also specialty equipment - which elevates the cost of parts. Taking your car to a Mercedes-Benz specialist is an option, but the cost is likely not going to change much.

Car makes a weird noise unless i have the heat on

I noticed a leak of a clear brownish fluid from under the car. I coated the area with some white footpowder to determine the exact spot and it seems to be coming from right behind the lowest (to the ground) of my belt tensioner pullies I'm also leaking tranny fluid from a unknown hose on the truck behind the driver side of the engine.... I cant find where this hose connects to anything.... Is it possible it's a overflow? I have a 06 jeep grand cherokee lerado 4.6L if that makes a difference
