Replace fuel pump/locate


Unfortunately the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank...I have found the best way to remove the pump is to take the entire bed of the truck off..the reason is the straps that hold the fuel tank up have bolts that hold the strap to the frame rail..in my experience..these bolts will snap off , leaving you more work to drill them out an so on..if you do decide to remove the bed there are 8 bolts holding it to the frame...once the bolts are removed ,you want to make sure you unplug the harness for the rear lights and also disconnect the fuel inlet assembly,then you can slide it back just far enough to gain access to the top of the fuel tank..The fuel pump assembly(also called fuel delivery module) will have a large "C" type clip holding it in.Using a screwdriver, you'll need to pop it out from around the diameter of the fuel pump. Then you may need to turn the whole pump a little to remove it...being careful of the float arm that is attached to it. Also, there are tools needed to remove the fuel lines, which should be available for rental from autozone. Be sure to replace the fuel filter as not doing this may void the warranty for the new pump. You will need the special tools for this too.

I had fuel tank straps replaced on 1999 Mercury Mystique. next day started having engine problems , replaced fuel filter ran fine couple of days,now its doing it again .I believe its not getting enough...


It could be that in the process of having the fuel tank straps fitted some dirt or rust inside the tank has come loose and clogged the gauze input filter that is part of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank. You will need to remove the pump assembly from the tank. Access to it is usually through a removable plate in the floor under the back seat. Once you have the pump assembly out allow the gauze filter to dry. You can assess the amount of clogging by sining a torch through the gauze and see how much light comes through. Clean it by brushing with an old tooth brush and blowing clean with compressed air. If there is a lot f dirt/rust in the tank, try draining it. You may have to repeat the cleaning process again in few months if the symptoms appear again

Where is the fuel pump reset button in a 1993 Chevrolet Caprice?


The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank, to replace it u must remove the gas tank from the car, there is no other access, the tank is held in 2 steel straps, u will need the car as high off the ground as poss, use a good floor jack to raise the car, then support the car on jack stands, put the jack under the tank and remove the steel straps thgat hold the fuel tank in, drop the tank down far enough so u can remove the fuel lines and the electrical connectors to tank components, remove the filler neck screws and drop tank out, undo the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump module in place in side the tank and remove the fuel pump, be very careful not to create any sparks, these can catch fire very easy, do the job in an area with really good ventilation, best if done outside.

Fuel pump 98 s10


Hi:
You must first drain and lower the fuel tank, as your pump is mounted inside. With the fuel tank supported, undo the tank mounting straps, and the filler hose, then slowly lower it until you can disconnect the fuel lines and electrical harness. The pump assembly is now accessable. Remove and replace the assembly , then reinstall the tank .
