Unfortionally it doesn't but am guessing you need to replace the fuel pump assembly. I can tell you that your tank isn't all that hard to pull out providing you do have an assistant to help you. You only have 2 straps holding yours up. Dissconnect the line at the fuel filter and can leave the other end on the tank. The side you take off on the filter is a quick disconnect so it's easy. A hint that may help is to twist the line back and forth in order to remove dirt up in there which makes sqeezing the quick disconnects difficult at times. Blowing it with air helps too. Also when disconnecting, puch the line towards the filter and then sqeeze and pull.Then I think there are one or 2 other lines (also quick dissconnect) and then the filler tube and vent. Loosen the 2 straps, lower a bit with help and while it's coming down and you are able to reach the electrical connections, disconnect and drop the tank. One other litle tip is to be sure NOT to bend the straps up because it can make it a pain when trying to start the bolt when installing the tank back in the car. You may have known all this but just in case I thought I could help with a few tips.

I am trying to syphon gas from my 99 Cavalier with a fluid transfer pump.when I run the hose down the filler neck I meet resistance and try to pump only getting small sprays of gas.Do the '99 model's have...

Yes, virtually all cars have them these days. You will not get any fuel out of the filler cap. There are some places you might get access to the tank contents like the outlet to or from the pump, the rubber connector that connects the filler pipe to the tank or the fuel pump if it is mounted in the tank and is accessible under the back seat.

Where exactly is the fuel pump for a 99 ford taurus

Hi, The fuel pump is in the gas tank. Some cars have an access panel built into the gas tank so the fuel pump can be easiily removed (this access panel is under the rear seat). However, you may have to drop thegas tank to get at the fuel pump. Good Luck!

What does the fule pump look like and where is it on the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier?

The fuel pump looks like this

And it is located inside your cars gas tank. To remove your fuel pump from your 2000 Chevy Cavalier you will have to drop and remove the gas tank to get to it. Unfortunately there is no access port to make it easy on this model of car.

Ran my 99 chevy cavalier out of gas--now it misses and dies when i stop--do i need to change plugs and filter? if so where are the plugs located?

Because you ran out of gas, the first thing to check is/are your fuel filter(s). Generally, throughout the years, dirt builds up in your gas tank but as long as the tank is reasonably full, the dirt either remains diluted or in the lower-most area of your tank. Running the tank empty probably sucked up the build up of dirt and now it's blocked your filter.

I have a 1999 cavalier i don't know what the gas

If the gauge reads full it is not the gas sending unit it is probably a blow fuse, and if you are not sure what you are doing with the ground wire on a gas tank you can blow your head off.

My gas gauge is always reading full why 1999 cavalier


The most likely cause is that the fuel sender in the tank is faulty or that the wiring to the sender is bad.

Less common causes are a faulty fuel guage or circuit in the instrument panel.

Test the sender as it is the most likely cause and easiest to eliminate.

First inspect all connections that are readily visible to insure that they are secure & free from dirt or corrosion.

Disconnect the fuel tank sender wire at the tank. The guage should continue to show full (ignition on). Ground the wire from the sending unit at the fuel tank to any good grounding point on the car. The gauge should go to "Empty". If it does this is a strong indicator that the sending unit is at fault.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Thanks
