Default can u believe this price

My fuel pump is out and i realy dont want to do it myself i just did the tranny, clutch, starter, and shifter so i called the dealer and this guy said uhh i dont even know if i could get those parts for it still. right there i could tell he just didnt want to do it so i said oh i have the pump already he then said hold on while i get a price.I was on hold for 2 sec. and when he got back on the phone he said 650 bucks.
what a jerk. any one else had a problem like this?



im still kinda new here so this could be in the wrong area to post this...

Really man, just do it your self, it's not as hard as it looks. Out of all of those things, that's gotta be the easiest one.

yeah the ONLY issues i had was

1. couldant syphon the gas outta the tank (bad design)
2.....did it with half a tank of gas.
3. when dropping the tank you have to push it off the filler neck (requires some tricky angles)
4. i syphoned the gas after i had it off and got a good mouthful of gas.....it burned.
5. I DID IT ALL ALONE! a second pair of hands or a second jack will help tons!
