How to replace a fuel pump on a 1984 chevy camaro with a 5.0 carbed engine


The only trick to this is that there is a bolt in the front of the engine block just in front of where the pump goes which you can remove, then install a longer bolt to press against the pump actuator rod to keep it from falling out when you remove the pump. If you don't do this you will need to remove the rod, use some hard grease on it and try to get it to stay in place while you mount the new pump which can be a real PITA. Be sure to cean the old gasket from the mounting area and use sealer on the new gasket. Use "line wrenches" on both sides of fuel line fittings to keep from rounding them off and mop up any fuel you spill. On some cars fuel will pour from tank when you remove that fuel line, so it helps to have a short piece of hose with a stopper in one end (I use an old bolt) to plug the line while you work. DO NOT WORK WITH A/C TROUBLE LAMP AROUND FUEL AND FUMES. Use a flashlight and be careful.

Where is fuel pump locate


It's in the gas tank. If you've never pulled a tank off to replace a pump, I advise you to buy a Haynes or Chilton repair manual for your Olds to follow the procedure-not immensely difficult, but pretty involved. All lines to the tank removed, electrical plugs disconnected, filler hose removed, then lower and drop the tank-2 straps usually hold it up-(helps to have as little gas as possible in the tank, or it will be quite heavy-in that case, use a floor jack with some wood padding to avoid denting the tank), remove tank away from car. To get to the pump, remove the locking ring (on top of tank) with a brass punch or wooden dowel (so no sparks, see?) or be very careful if you use a steel punch or big screwdriver-NOT RECOMMENDED-but I have done it without sparks, so just be careful. pull the locking ring off and pull out the pump and fuel sender unit. Take off old pump, and replace with new-hopefully it is a OEM-original equipment manufacture-Aftermarket brand pumps just do not perform as well as original (olds) equipment. If the pump has failed, it is good practice to also replace the fuel pump relay-a failing pump can sometimes damage or shorten the life of the fuel pump relay, or so I've heard. Common tools and ratchets are needed for the job-possibly also a release tool for the fuel line fittings-if you have those types of fittings, I think you do, called quick connect fittings.
There's lots of other procedures to get the tank off-like lowering tank, then remove lines and electricals from top of tank, probably the exhaust will have to be lowered, you can siphon gas out the filler neck after lowering the tank a bit. You need to know how to relieve fuel pressure before disconnecting lines, but if little or no gas is in the lines, there won't be pressure. You just need a repair manual to do it step by step-...and label all lines removed, so you know where they go back on the tank.
If I haven't discouraged you yet, buy the manual, and get set for a dirty Saturday afternoon. Essentials like beer and pot are a given. lol.

Raisethe trunk lid and access the fuel tank service cover in the upperright-hand side of the trunk ledge. Remove the cover and unplug theelectrical connector that powers the fuel pump. Start the carand let it run until the engine dies. This will remove thehigh-pressure fuel that is in the line so fuel will not spray when theline is disconnected. Test for voltage by probing the positive andnegative fuel pump wires with a test-light. Make sure there is avoltage signal to the pump. If there is, the pump is defective. Turnthe key off when the car stalls and replace the pump.
Disconnectthe fuel feed line with the quick disconnect feature that is part ofthe fuel line fitting. Squeeze the two tangs of the connector and pullthe hose off. Remove the fuel vapor hose that goes to the vaporcanister by loosening the clamp and pulling the hose off the vaporport. Remove the retainer ring that holds the pump assembly in placeusing a small shop hammer and screwdriver. Lightly tap the screwdriveragainst the indents on the retaining ring until it unscrews. (The ringlooks like a large lid that screws to a jar.) Completely loosen thering and remove the pump module by lifting it up and out.
Install a new pump module into the opening. The new module will comecomplete, including a new fuel filter. No parts will need to betransferred from the old pump module. Push the new module into the fueltank and tighten the retaining ring into place. Snap the fuel feed lineinto place, making sure there is a distinctive snap as the line locksin. Install the vapor line and tighten the hose clamp. Do not leavethis line off or fuel vapors will enter the car. Plug the wiringharness in, and replace the pump cover. Start the car.

    Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

    Maybe you have a plugged fuel return line.You have a fuel supply line and a fuel return.If its plugged you can not get the air out of the lines.Remove the the line and blow through it If you cant its clogged.Also you can prime the line line by turning your key on and off .You may need to disconnect the fuel line to make sure gas is coming out when you do this

    Cant get gas to injecters 2000 ford windstar it was 5 out last night and 25 out today weve been having problems getting it to start for the last 2 weeks


    Disconnect your supply lines to the cylinders. Try starting the car while someone watches the disconnected lines. If fuel pumps from the lines you need to have your injectors cleaned or replaced. More likely it is your fuel pump that has gone bad. If you dont see any fuel flowing from the disconnected fuel lines, try replacing your fuel pump and replace your fuel filter too just to be prevent pushing any dirt and sediment from a dirty filter into a new 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

    Where is the fuel filter in my 1992 Isuzu Rodeo?


    Look on passenger side frame rail ahead of the rear wheel in a bracket with a fuel line on each end. Before starting replacement-- be sure to release pressure from fuel lines, by removing fuel pump fuse under hood and running engine to use gas from lines. I then remove fuel lines by moving clamps away from fitting so hose can be pulled loose from old filter while it is still in bracket. On top of mounting is a bolt that holds filter clamp in place . After removing clamp and filter from mounting bracket, loosen filter body clamp and slip oout old filter-- then in with the new filter. Then reverse your steps to install filter. After filter is back in place -- reinstall fuel pump fuse, turn on key for a few seconds for gas to refill lines, then start engine and check your installation to make sure you have no fuel leaks at line connections.
