SOURCE: 2003 Silverado I bang on the gas tank and it

Just adding to the previous solution... When replacing the fuel pump, it make the job a lot easier to just pull the truck bed off. There are 6 bolts holding it on from underneath (also remove the gas cap screws) and it will lift off the frame. The bolts are very easy to reach with a 6 inch extension as long as you don't have duel exhaust in which case you will need a knuckle. Once the bed is off...you have free and easy access to the top of the fuel tank and pump. Use a brass punch to remove the retaining ring on top of the fuel tank. (a pump replacement kit can be rented at most auto parts stores).

I would check the brake switch, located above the brake pedal.  It's not common, but they do go bad occasionally.

I have a 2003 silverado, it starts fine in the morning but the rest of the day it cranks for a long time before starting. turning the key on and off a few times doesn't help. I have had the fuel pump


If the fuel pump is inside the gas tank, remove the gas cap, to equalize the air-pressure inside/outside the gas tank. That should let the fuel pump "suck" the gas from the tank.

Brake line leaks above the gas tank-is there any easy way to fix this


Easy? No. Easier, yes. Remove truck bed bolts (~4-6, not hard to remove), raise bed by blocking bed up with 4x4 or 6x6 wood blocks. Access brake lines, fuel pump, etc. I lifted mine by myself to replace a fuel pump. I may have learned about tip on fixya long ago myself.

How do drop the fuel tank to replace the fuel pump on a 2001 chev silverado 1500?


some times it is easier to remove the bed.

jack up truck

unhook the fuel inlet hose and vent

reach threw fender and unhook fuel lines from top of tank and wiring plug

remove bolts from fuel tank straps ( the ones closest to drive shaft )

lower tank

sounds easy but is is harder then it sounds expecly if the tank is full of gas.

get a few friends over and pull the bed.

Thsi morning a mechanic flushed out the brake fluid to replace with a new fluid. When he bleeded to let the air out, there was a leak in one of the 4 brake lines. The brake line is rusted from years of...


Hi, this is a very common failure. I recommend you call a couple brake shops. They will have the parts in stock and better experience to get the job done quickly. The bed or the tank may need to come off, but a quicker way may be to leave the old line in and just cut it, reflare the ends, and reroute a new spliced line. Your Firestone mechanics may not have the experience to know this.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 1989 chevy 1500 5.7, where is the fuel pump on tank?


You "could" remove the bed, or just lift it high enough to work on the tank. There are 6 or 8 bolts depending if it is a short bed or long bed. But you should undo the 2 straps from underneath, the filler tube from the gas cap filler, and lower the tank with a jack. Another problem these trucks have is the wiring connection to the sending unit/fuel pump assembly. GM recommends to replace this harness end when you work on it. (about $12.00 for the harness connection). These sending units/pumps retail about $300-$400, but you can find them on line starting about $120.00.

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

1995 chevrolet pickup 1500, how do I remove gas tank


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.
