hi all, i am a newbe to this group, but i have been driving my fiancées 03 aztek for the last year and a half. i was one of the people that dident like them, but now i am a convert.. i love it because its odd (just like me)

the reason for the post is that just after 200,000 miles the fuel pump has died (first and only major issue thus far, knock on wood) i was wondering if anybody here has had to replace theres yet or has any walk thru for this replacement... i have access to the tools necessary and a buddies lift, but just havent done it yet


thanks in advance

it was a bit of a job, but its done.. was up till midnight (guy that owns the lift dident get off work till 8, and then we had other issues) but im still not convinced the fuel pump was bad, the electrical conection to the body harness was badly corroded, might want to check that out if you ever have any issues.... but the new pump is in and took me about 50 miles today, not bad for a 200,000 miles car

more often than not, it is problems with the c-305 connector under the drivers seat that causes problems imitating a faulty fuel pump.  many here have done a c305 ectomy- search that for details

Oh, hello and welcome to the site.  Also- 200,000 miles on their Tek- you may be a new club leader...

thank you very much, i have already had the thought of replacing the c305 with a marine weather-pack connector (we actually live on a sailboat in Florida), but im done crawling around under it for now... but that might be a good project for a slow weekend.

seriously more people haven't put that many miles on there tek?? this things been as far south as key west (Manny times... we see quite a few teks there lol), as far north and west as Iowa, all over the lower eastern seaboard from Florida to VA...

love to set up a regional rally... thinking from key west to miami...
