The fuel tank must be removed from the vehicle to replace pump or lift the box from the frame. If you remove the tank it is held up with two tank straps and the lines must be unhooked as you lower it. good luck unless you have access to a lift.

If you have access to sheet metal tools, and a MIG welder, there is an alternative to removing the tank.

Using a 1/16th inch thick cuttoff blade on a handheld 4" grinder, carefully cut a square hole in the bed above the fuel pump. Use caution when cutting so that you don't go too deep, and cut into the lines beneath the bed. But there is almost two inches of clearance. So if you keep the blade depth at just barely through the sheet metal of the bed, you should be ok. Also, a good precaution is to slide a small piece of sheet metal in above the tank, between the tank, and bed before you start cutting to shield things in case you screw up, and go too deep.

Use the square piece metal that you remove, and a short piece of piano hinge, to make an access door in the bed of the truck.

It is usually a self contained unit in the tank that contains the pump-fuel gauge and pickup stainer in one unit. a twistlock retainer nut and rubber washer secure the pump to the tank.

Fuel Pump

The fuel pump is in the gas tank, the best way to do this is to get some friends and remove the bed from the frame. There is i believe 8 bolts that hold the bed to the frame, and don't forget to remove the hardware to the gas tank filler neck. Once the bed is off the frame, you can get to the fuel tank. Disconnect the wire harness and might as well replace the harness since there only $12.00 last i looked, disconnect the fuel line and return line. Remove the fuel pump retainer ring and lift up on the fuel pump sending unit. To install replace the rubber O ring and oil it before installing the new fuel pump sending unit. Install the fuel sending unit retaining ring, gas lines, new wire harness, and filler tube. Good lime also to check the hose to the EVAP since you can inspect them, look for any dry rot to the vacuum lines and replace if needed. Reinstall the bed and use lock tight to the bed bolts or replace them with stainless bolts. Good luck and hope this helps, oh and you might as well change the fuel filter while your have the bed off. The other way is to drop the gas tank which means draining the tank and raising the truck.

How do I change the fuel pump

No pressure at fuel rail or nothing coming from injectors? I have seen pumps fail like that though. Pump comes out like the older pickup/sending units did. after tank is down, remove snap ring then remove pump. Check the "sock" filter on the pump to make sure it's nopt plugged up...If it is, you can change sock and clean out tank. Otherwise replace pump.

Change Fuel Pump on 1999 Chev Silverado v8 2 wd automatic 2 door

well the pump is in the fuel tank and it depends if the tank is full or not if it is its very heavy and you will need a jack and 1 other person to help you there are two fuel lines to unhook and the electrical connector. When replacing it replace the entire fuel pump/sending unit and the electrical harness or you will end up having more problems also spend the extra 15$ and replace the fuel filter

Fuel Pump Replacement

Most chevrolet models have the fuel pump inside the gas tank. to replace it, you will need to drop the tank... and you should see it on the top. BTW for safety sake... don't try this with a full fuel tank.
