  1. Disconnect wiring from the tank.
  2. Remove the ground wire retaining screw from under the body.
  3. Disconnect all hoses from the tank.
  4. Support the tank on a jack and remove the retaining strap nuts.
  5. Lower the tank and remove it.
  6. Notice the position of the filter for replacement. Support the pump with one hand and grasp the filter with the other. Rotate the filter in one direction, then pull off of the pump. Discard the filter.
  7. Disconnect the fuel pump connector, on wagons it will not be necessary.
  8. On all models excluding wagons:
    1. Place the sending unit on a bench upside down, then pull the fuel pump downwards to remove from the mounting bracket. Tilt the pump outwards and remove from the pulsator.
  9. On wagons proceed as follows:
    1. Disconnect the negative terminal nut and lead (black) from the pump.
    2. Disconnect the positive lead (gray) from the pump, then loosen the coupler clamps.
To install:
  1. On all models excluding wagons:
    1. Assemble the rubber bumper and insulator onto the pump.
    2. Position the fuel sender assembly upside down and install the fuel pump between the pulsator and mounting bracket.
    3. Connect the pump electrical connector.
  2. On all wagon models:
    1. Position the fuel sender assembly upside down and install the coupler and coupler clamps to the inlet tube, but do not tighten at this time.
    2. Install the pump between the coupler and the mounting bracket, then tighten the clamps so that 5-8 teeth are engaged.
    3. Attach the positive lead (gray) to its positive terminal with the nut, then attach the negative lead (black) to the negative terminal.Always install a new filter when installing a new pump.
  3. Position the pump filter on the new pump and push the outer edge of the ferrule until it is fully seated.
  4. Install the sending unit.
  5. Install the gas tank and check for leaks.
  6. Reconnect the battery cable.da5e8e9.jpg

SOURCE: Fuel Pump Location

the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank.On the ground the tank is really a job to replace, u must have the car at least 3 feet off the ground.

SOURCE: Fuel gauge stuck behind peg at FULL mark

one thing you can try is to get one of those magnetic pick up tools at a parts store.......prefferably one with a large magnet...and put a cloth around the end of it so you dont scratch the plastic on you gauges and try to pull it back to where it belongs,i have done this a few times with good results,hope this helps

Testimonial: "Thanks for the tip. A strong magnet to the right side of the instrument cluster was used to reset the needle clockwise to its proper position."

Do I need to take out and and then reinsert the fuel pump fuse to reset the fuel gauge


That won't affect the fuel gauge. Different circuits, entirely. Any issue with the fuel gauge is between the gauge on the dash, a little wiring to the gas tank, and the sender unit inside the tank. In most cases, the problem turns out to be the sending unit inside the tank.

To check the gauge itself for working, you can ground the fuel gauge wire at the gas tank connector, and watch for movement on the gauge, with the key in ON. You take the connector off at the gas tank, find the wire for the fuel level sender (or gauge), and touch it to a good ground- a metal piece on the car frame. If gauge is good, the needle will move either to full or to empty, but you can see the needle move to a new point, when you (temporarily, only temporarily) ground the fuel gauge wire. The key in the switch must be in on. If this causes the needle to move, then the dash gauge is good, and the problem is the sender unit in the tank. This unit has a variable resistor, not too expensive. The fun is getting to it.

Gas gague not working in 93 gmc sierra


The fuel level gage sending unit is defective, very common problem. The sending unit comes with a new fuel pump and is referred to as a module, also make darn sure you replace the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank, solder and shrink tube the new connector on, DO NOT USE CRIMP CONNECTORS.

Fuel gauge sending unit in the gas tank needs replacing.

If you remove the sending unit in the gas tank, move it manually by hand as u saw done earlier, the gauge on the dash should also move. As long as the sending unit in the tank isn't 'stuck' at the half full level, the gauge should register empty to full as it moves. To be honest, I'm not sure if I would bother taking the sending unit out. 1st, u must be very careful not to blow yourself up when working on the gas tank (no sparks, etc), all u really need to do is fill up your car, see how many miles a tank of gas will go (carry a can of gas with u to see how many miles before u run out). If it's 350 miles, just set the trip gauge to zero every time u fill up, and get gas every 300 miles so u don't run out. If the sending unit moves freely, everything (wiring ) is connected properly, then it probably is the fuel gauge. good luck!

Gas gauge


The cause of this is the gas tank fuel level sending unit, the gas tank must be pulled to replace this part.
