If it does its just a fuel line removal tool, couple bucks at any auto parts store. I think the pack I got last month was 4 dollars or something like that?

Removal of the bed to replace the fuel pump is because some people consider so as an easier way to have access to it.

And yeah you got ripped off. Ask any fellow RFer and they will gladly help you with any doubts/problems you have about your truck.

Wow you got robbed bad!!

Yeah it's always a good idea to run problems with your truck by peps on here. They can save you a lot of guesswork and headache. Not to mention some Benjamins!

Not sure what year your truck is, but I can change my mass air flow sensor (MAF sensor) in about 5 minutes. And if you mean you were charged $675.00 to replace it, that's way too much money, even if he used genuine Ford parts. I'd be going back to the shop to have words w/ the owner.

you that mechanic is a greedy dick, and its not very had to replace any of those things, removing the bed can be a pain in the *** if your underbody is rusted out, and it depends on where your fuel rail is, but its not hard to depressurize the system as either. and i agree mark, lol
