Fuel sending unit

Hi mr Toyota ed,

i'm an expert myself on a/c and fridge here at fixya, but i'm now here at carson and would like to replace the fuel sending unit of my sister's toyota sequioa. would there be any tips on how to do that without of course pulling the tank down. i'm thingking if there would be access holes from the top to the sending unit of the tank. she's having erratic reading once the needle goes below the 1/2 mark.

tnx in advance,

No fire to the fuel pump ... is there a fuse or something that needs to be changed

Hello. Welcome to FixYa. I am Toyota Ed, and I will be assisting you today.

If your EFI fuse is OK, I would suspect a broken or corroded power wire between the wiring harness and the top of the fuel tank, where the power wire for the fuel pump enters the tank. This is a very common issue. If the wire is indeed broken (which it probably is) you will need to replace the fuel tank fuel pump/sending unit cap/bracket assembly. Just tell the Toyota Parts person that you have a bad fuel pump wire, they will know exactly what to sell you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

Need to replace the fuel tank on a 1994 4Runner, but need to know what other parts to get with it. Obviously the in-tank fuel pump, the fuel strainer, seals, there a sending unit as well?

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

You would do well to purchase the cap/bracket assembly that holds the fuel outlet/return piping, it also holds the fuel pump and the fuel sending unit inside the tank. The chances of you re-using the original one are slim, as rust will have developed on the fuel pipes, and, if you bump them when removing the tank, they will crack. Also, get the bolts that holds the cap/bracket on, too. They do not cost that much. I'd replace the fuel sending unit and the strainer while you are changing the tank, also.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today!
