    hey guys, it's time to replace the fuel pump on my 04 Escalade. Would you all just go with the factory replacement AC Delco or is there a better option?

    Thank you

    And 4.5 hours. Look on eBay for good price or rock auto.

    factory factory factory.

    As far as how long it takes, it honestly really depends. Empty tank and no rust? An hour, if that. Rusty and full tank? Bit longer. If you know you're rusty, pickup new straps and fuel pump retainer if the new one doesn't come with it. Can't remember which years have plastic and which ones have metal lines. If you're in the salt belt, plan on replacing fuel lines too

    Don't forget the fuel line disconnect tools. You'll have a good time trying to get them off without them

    As @SnowDrifter says, new straps are a must, and be prepared for new lines depending on mileage / location. Those babies can snap easy, just lube them up some before trying to remove.

    I got the $150 rockauto fuel pump and just installed it this past weekend. If you are in an area that gets rust, I'd recommend picking up the fuel line connectors with the repair line kit that comes with the new connector attached to a new fuel line section. With a 1/4 tank of gas left in the tank it wasn't too heavy. Took about 6 hours total to do and had to deal with some difficult connectors on the other connections.
