ok... i have a 06 mustang gt ( stock ) about 3 days ago the
check engine light lit up... so i took the car to the closest ford dealership . there they told me that they had to replace the following -- 1. the fuel pump (part number: 7R3Z-9H307-C) / --2. the canister vent/ --3. the solenoid (part number:6R3Z-9F945-AA) / --4. reprogram the pcm... for this ford is charging me $900 for parts and labor ... i need some help bcs i don't know much about this kind of stuff but since i have to replace the fuel pump for my car i was wondering what fuel pump you guys would recommend for me ( like i said my car is stock but i will be putting an intake and a diablo tune on it ) and i would also like a little insight on the issue !!!! i always put 93 octane in my car and stuff and i don't know what could have caused my pump to go ! and what is the canister and solenoid ford is talking about replacing !!!!

oh ! could i replace this stuff my self? would i need to take it to ford after i do so they can reprogram my car ? what replacement options would you guys recomend !?

thank you guys so much in advanced for stopping at my post !!!

feedback will be very apreciated ...

With all the 100s (if not 1000s) of guys who have replaced the stock pump with dual GT500 or other systems, there must be tons of used units out there. I just sold mine recently for $30 shipped.

p.s. I wouldn't let a Ford dealer put air in my tires, much less have them actually do anything mechanical. So they would not get that $900 from me... sheesh, what a crock.

There you go PM these guys and get a good deal on a used system. You don't need to reprogram you car.

The cannister is under the black protective cover just behind the rear bumper. Yes a Predator can read and clear codes.
