I have an 07 X2 with only 130 hours on it I going for a 1 week vacation, should I be worried about the fuel pump? I never run it below 1/4 but I seethat it's a very common failure. also what is the Napa part Number? I may just buy one and throw it under the seat

You should be good until about 300 hours - seems to be the MO

Search for fuel pump should yield the fuel pump thread with part numbers and how tos.

Here are a couple of the most common part numbers but it seems several will work. It's impossible to know when it will go out.... I would not replace until it goes out but if your worried pick up a spare pump and have the tools to change it at the lake.

Napa AC Delco EP356
Also Airtex E2044

Seems like the problems happen after you run your tank dry. That was my experience. If you've not done that you're probably OK.

what tool do you need for the fuel line?

I never ran mine low on gas and lost it at 345. I also did not need the tool to remove the gas line - I was able to get it out and changed without it.

A buddy lost his at about 350hrs as well. Guessing neither he nor the prev owner ran it out of gas.
I only have 140hrs on mine, but have had a spare pump and fuel line tool in the boat for over a year now.

How hard it it to use? Do you have any advice/instructions?

NAw it's easy, just slide it over the fuel line and under the connector, pops the spring loaded connector off.

The pump on my 04 x30 with the MCX started having problems last week. Replaced it today with the Airtex from Advanced Auto Parts. $75 and took me an hour. Carefully removed the line from only the pump side and reused.

Allen head socket to remove entire assembly from tank, fuel line tool, flathead screwdriver, Phillip screwdriver to remove one fuel line clamp.

Hey guys. I'm on a one week vacation up on lake Vermilion MN, and wouldn't you know my fuel pump seems to have gone out. I wish I had read this thread before I left, I would have stocked up on parts and tools before I left Kansas City! Anyway, I've spent the better part of the day researching what I need to replace my fuel pump. I'm just hoping that I can confirm that the following pumps will work on an 03 X2 with the predator motor:

Napa AC Delco EP356
Also Airtex E2044

Thanks for the help...this forum is a life saver!

The Airtex you have listed is what I got from Advanced Auto Parts.
