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.

hi, here is a guide on the job you need to do it seems a lot of work though, to be honest i cant believe they put the fuel pump their in the first place usually their bolted to the floor of the car near the tank but yours needs the tank taking out to get to the pump witch can be a big job

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.

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.

Testimonial: " i cannot get the bolts off the frame in the rear, so i am going to take the front ones off and try to lift the bed so i can get at the tank. i dont know if this will work, but unless i can drain the gas out i have to try. thanks"
