So my fuel level sender in my car is bad. Can I just buy another one and replace it or do i need to buy a whole new pump?

Thanks

You can just buy the level sender @ gmpartsdirect.com (I think right around 90 bucks). If I may make a suggestion, replace the strainer as well since your there, I think the strainer costs like 15 bucks.

Not an easy job to do either as your playing around fuel, which alot of people are not as comfortable with.

Depends on the mileage on the car. I had 190K and the level sender went bad. I opted to replace the entire assembly, figured I'd replace the sender and then the pump would go. GM does sell the sender seperately, but if you need the pump, you'll have to buy the sender, too.

I agree with the whole pump suggestion if it's warranted. Really depends on the mileage. And the strainer is not serviced on these pumps for some reason. But you may be able to find one that fits. So thats something to think about as well.

The sender runs about $130 from GMPD after shipping. I offer these, and keep them in stock too. I sell them for $128 shipped.

That's pretty misleading. The fuel pump/sender in the Impala is one of the easiest to change of all vehicles, just pop open the access port under the trunk carpet and you're in. There's a retaining ring to rotate and it lifts right out.

Yeah, it was really easy. I replaced it when I made this topic.

Good luck on finding a strainer...I even called AC Delco and Delphi and spoke with the technicians to try and find one after I tore one. I told them they either have to make it or have a supplier for it because they come with the pump.

It was a giant dead end.
