I am changing a fuel pump in a 2007 Chevy avalanche

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

The old fuel pump had 2 blue wires connecting to a float. The new pump is a Delphi and has no float

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Avalanche yourself? What have you tried so far?

But has two unconnected blue wires

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Let me look up the new pump and see if it should have the fuel level sensor.

We're did you get the pump from? It should have come with the fuel level sensor on it as well as the float.

Got it from advanced Auto. But he just made his own hole and put the float sensor and float on the new one himself.
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 11 months ago

Has he installed it already? More then likely some one has bought the before and returned it. It would not surprise me if they got the parts they needed and returned it to get there money back. The pump may not be any good.
