SOURCE: i am trying to remove my fuel tank from a 96 chevy suburban and replace the fuel pump

ok i'm going to guess that you have a gasoline engine with a side tank like in a pickup truck. if you have a diesel let me know, things might be a little different. here's the step by step for a gas side tank. before you start, disconnect the battery negative cable.
1. drain the fuel from the tank (they don't tell you how, just get as much out as you can)
2.raise and safely support vehicle (get it high enough that you can get under it to work on it)
3.loosen the fuel neck hose at fuel neck and disconnect filler neck from tank
4.support tank and remove tank support straps and insulator strips
5.remove frame mounted bracket
6.lower fuel tank shield
7.lower fuel tank enough to gain access to fuel and electrical connections
8.disconnect fuel feed and vapor hoses
9.disconnect electrical connectors
10.remove fuel sender assembly and seal ring
now to install new tank
1.install NEW seal ring and install sender
2.raise tank enough to connect fuel feed /vapor hoses and electrical connector
3.raise tank fully
4.install fuel tank shield
5.connect fuel tank filler neck and tighten clamp
CAUTION tighten fuel strap fasteners in steps, alternating between straps, until proper torque is reached. failure to properly follow this step can cause bottom of tank to deform. fuel gauge may read improper level if this occurs
6.install fuel tank brackets and insulator strips
torque nuts to 115 in-lbs
7.install fuel tank filler cap
8.connect battery negative cable
9.turn ignition switch off and on and check for leaks
it's pretty much the same for rear tank, just different location, may have off-road shield in back and torque spec is 47 ft-lbs, not 115 in-lbs. you still have to alternate when you torque straps or you risk deforming tank. hope that helps

SOURCE: Easiest way to replace a fuel pump on a 2002 chevy

i replaced the fuel pump on my chevy avalanche last year there is really only one way to replace it ,you have to take the braces down that holds the fuel tank up, unhook fuel lines, and rubber filler hoses, drop the gas tank to be able to get to the fuel pump. i bought a book at auto parts store that takes you step by step on how to do it.

SOURCE: 2002 Avalanche gas gauge problems

Gm has a real problem with fuel tank sending units. That is what is wrong. You need a fuel tank sending unit. You can only get them aftermarket with the whole fuel pump module, but you can buy them seperate if you buy it from the dealer.

Ran out of gas, car wouldn't crank replaced fuel pump, fuel relay, and in line fuel filter and still won't crank on 2002 chevy avalanche


still won't crank ? how's your battery ? starter ? starter solonoid ? if your engine does'nt crank , its dead ! would'nt you check the battery first ? then move on with checking the starter circuit ? seems like your putting the cart before the horse ! first of all, when you run out of gas, you need to replace the FUEL FILTER, your engine just sucked the dirt, garbage, etc., out of the tank. there's plenty of sediment in the tank, don't know how it gets there, but, you'd be surprized ! talking threw experience !!! I operate heavy equipment, its a cardinal sin to run out of fuel !!! you say you replaced the inline filter, which one, up by the engine or the main filter, under vehicle along frame ? are we talking about the same animal, PLEASE CLARIFY !

How do you change a fuel pump in a 2003 chevy avalanche?


drop the fuel tank. (hopefully it is just about empty) on top of tank unplug power plug disconnect fuel lines and remove locking ring on top of pump unit, lift pump up out of tank. replace in opposite order. It really is that easy if the tank is empty as you can do it all with no jack . I did my yukon xl in about a hour but i had a friend handing me whatever i yelled for. I also removed the rear driveshaft so i would have plenty of room to sit up under the truck and god was that nice. Make sure you support the rear axle up with jackstands, yes jack rear of truck off the ground.

drop the gas tank and the inlet to your tank turns. you may need to tap it with a hammer to get it to turn. your fuel pump is in there. make sure you unhook the battery before you start.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2005 chevy avalanche????? checked on the frame under the drivers door. was told it was on the frame but looked everywhere!!!!


It is in the fuel tank attached to the fuel pump module not on the fuel rail .The mechanics book time to do this job is 3.3 hours of labor.Almost all vehicles now a days are going to this system :)
