The engine, however, comes with a glaring flaw: the fuel system. CarComplaints.com has many Corvette owners complaining about fuel pump leaks. In fact, it’s the #1 problem reported by Corvette, Camaro, and Firebird owners. This issue rears its ugly head around 40,000 miles and calls for a fuel pump replacement.

Purchasing a Replacement Fuel Pump

An OEM fuel pump for older Camaros and Firebirds costs about $300. It’s expensive because these pumps are hard to come by, as many manufacturers have stopped producing them for older vehicles. However, just because they’re obsolete doesn’t mean it’s impossible to find one.

If you don’t have $300 burning a hole in your pocket, you can get OEM-quality replacement fuel pump components at Auteria for less than $170. We’re able to set reasonable prices because we sell our components directly from the manufacturer to our customers, unlike our competitors who mark up their prices after buying their parts from distributors.
