    it is best to drop the fuel tank, if you have the car rased high enough, this is a very hard job without a lift.

SOURCE: 04 chev. 1500 fuel tank will not take gas, gas

Evap vent solenoide is stuck closed. Start by replacing the valve and checking the hose to the valve for clogs...this is located between the cab of the truck and the bed of the truck on the driver side (can be seen if you look down through the crack)....If this doesn't work then check the fuel filler neck hose for kink or restriction this is the hose that goes from the gas cap to the fuel tank.

SOURCE: How do I remove the bed from 2000 F250 Super Duty

Removing the bed is in no way easier than just dropping the fuel tank, and the fuel tank was designed to easily be dropped down from the vehicle. Who ever told you that removing the bed was the easier way is certainly not an auto technician or even a mechanic.

SOURCE: 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.

Can I change my fuel pump by removing the bed


Yes you can change a fuel pump by removing the bed, but if you don't have much fuel in the tank it is way easier to just drop the tank all it really is is the heat shield and the tank straps super easy

Please is it easier to take the truck bed off or drop the gas tank to change the fuel pump on a 1992 chevy silverado 1500


That depends on how much fuel is in the tank, if the tank is full or at least half, then removing the bed is easier, if the tank is less then half full removing the tank is easier. It all depends on where your fuel level is to what is easier. The only other thing that I can think of is that if you do not have a second person to help you remove the bed, then dropping the tank with a Jack would be easier, so it all depends on what your situation is.

How to get the fuel pump out of the gas tank on a 1998 dodge ram 1500 4x4 5.2


you have one or two options you can slide the bed off of the frame enough to gain acess to the top of the fuel tank or you can drop the tank if you drop the tank its better if its not full of gas makes for easier handiling either way once you get access to the top of the tank you will have to use a straight edge and a hammer in order to release the locking tab on the pump once the tab is free you will be able to pull the pump out of the tank. reverse the process in order to reinstall.

An easier way you may want to consider is removing the bed of the truck. There is only 6 bolts from underneath.2 in the front and 4 in the rear then just remove fuel cap and fuel neck screws and unplug tail light plugs on both sides.

Need to replace fuel pump for my 1998 dodge ram 4x4.


there is an easier way to replace the fuel pump than dropping the tank. I replaced mine last week in about 30 min. I simply took the bed off only six or eight bolts depending on bed size, a few tail light wires and filler neck and over flow. might need someone to help get the bed off though.
