Question about 1999 Chevrolet Suburban

How do you replace a fuel pump on a 1999 Chevy Suburban?

I've never replaced a fuel pump on a suburban before and i was told i might have to take the body off, is that true? Also i would like any input on a simple easy way to change the fuel pump. Any information would be helpful.

Thank you.

    I heard that there is a plate covering the top of the fuel pump so you won't have to take the gas tank off is that right

In order to repalce the fuel pump you need to siphon as much fule out of the tank as possible or run it low if it still runs. Then you will need a jack and jack stands. The tank fuel tank can be removed with a jack and a pice of plywood to lower it. Some basic hand tools are also needed. You do need to have a braod knowledge of cars and hand tools as safety and skill come into play. Feel free to email me if you want more detailed steps. the whole job takes 2-3 hours

I have a 1999 Chevy suburban. Fuel pump was replaced also replaced computer. When you turn on the key no lights come on (check engine and all) will turn over but won't start


Did you have the computer programmed to the vehicle? Could be the reason for the no start. No lights could be the plug at the back of the instrument panel. Unplug it, then plug it back.

Fuel pump shut off location on a 1999 chevy suburban???


there is no fuel pump shutoff on this truck, if the fuse and relay are good there is a 99.9% chance your fuel pump is gone bad. they usually start to give off a louder sound from the tank and then they quit shortly after.
