    I can hear the pump running when I turn the key but I think the filter may be clogged. Last time I changed a filter in a different vehicle I got abunch of gas in my face so I don't know if the lines need to be bleed on this truck or if I can just undo the bolts on the filter and take it off

SOURCE: air in fuel line between fuel filter and injection

Hi, before the pump it is a loose connection or maybe a pin hole in the pipe, check all the connections and pipes for seepage, after the pump it will be a leak, i knowit sounds the same but after the pump the fuel is under pressure. It would appear that your system drawing air rather than forcing air in. daveg

Unfortunately, the ECM isn't "OK"...Get a read on the computer and go from there...if I had to guess I'd say ALL the O2 sensors are fouled...especially if you use gas additives or starting fluid.
Good Luck

1988 C1500 start and run great until accelerate at road speed. Told that fuel pump could be bad. Changed fule pump and now no pumping at all. pump buzzes but no fuel at all. Loosened connection and...

Look for a cap on the fuel rail to purge air. Under cap will look like a tire valve, with fuel pump running depress center pin to bleed out air. If no fuel CK for plugged fuel filter.

Need to drain fuel

There's an easy way and a hard way. You can drop the tank (one bolt on each of two straps). Make sure you support the tank with a floor jack and let it down easy so you don't break the fuel lines. Or, you can disconnect the fuel line at the fuel filter, put a pail under the line, and turn the ignition to the on position. You'd have to do it a few times as the pump will only turn on for a little while. If you're draining it because there's liquid in there that shouldn't be (i.e. diesel), you can do it with the pump. If there's rust or foreign obecjts in there, drop the tank.

I need to change my fuel filter on my '95 GMC sierra 1500, is there a relief valve to let pressure off the line?

There is a schrader valve on the fuel line on the engine for attaching a fuel gauge to monitor the fuel pump for testing purposes, and it should have a cap on the valve similar to a valve stem cap on a tire. (relieving the fuel pressure is similar to letting the air out of a tire and watch out for any fuel spray) or you can loosen up a line fitting at the fuel filter until the pressure bleeds off then replace the fuel filter, and you might want to have a pan to catch the fuel in, and be very certain that there is no ignition source anywhere near the vehicle.

How to replace fuel filter on a 1998 Chevrolet Silverado C1500 5.7 Liter

On all C/K's of this body-type 88-98, the fuel filter is located under the driver's side door inside the frame rail near the crossmember that supports the tail of the transmission. Replace it with AC Delco part GF-626, FRAM part G3727, or other comparable brand corresponding metal bodied filter. You should use a flare-nut wrench for the line fitting and one for the filter fitting. I'm not sure of the size needed for the filter, but the line should be 5/8". For SFI engines ('96 and later) you need to bleed off the pressure in the line. Locate the pressure test port on the fuel rail under the hood, remove the cap, press valve to relieve line pressure and recap valve. If ground clearance is not high enough to get under vehicle and work, raise it with jack and rest frame on jackstands. * Caution: Fuel in lines and filter will run out once fittings are undone. Use fuel safe container to catch fuel spill. Take wrenches and hold filter from rotating, while loosening line fittings. Remove Filter from bracket by sliding and manipulating fuel lines for clearance, and slide filter out of bracket. Reassembly is reverse of disassembly. Tighten fittings snugly. Reconnect battery, turn ignition on (do not start). Pump will make brief whirring sound - less than 5 seconds. Check for leaks. No leaks - good. Now you can drive again.
