I need to change the fuel pump on my sons car, I know where it is, I want to know the easiest way to replace it. Also can it be removed from inside the car under the rear seat, I see the top of the pump but the inspection panel is off set to the pump and looks very tight, Or do i have to drop the petrol tank to do the work.

Removal & Installation

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions section.
  2. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Drain the fuel tank.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:
  5. While holding the modular fuel sender assembly down, remove the snapring, if equipped or if equipped with a cam lock ring use Fuel Sender Lock Nut Tool J-39765 to press down and rotate the cam lock ring to remove it.

    WARNING If the modular fuel sender assembly is retained by a snapring, it may spring up from its position. When removing the modular fuel sender from the tank, be aware that the reservoir bucket is full of fuel. It must be tipped slightly during removal to avoid damage to the float.
    • Fuel sender assembly
    • External fuel strainer
    • Connector retainer from the wiring harness and the fuel pump
  6. Gently release the tabs on the sides of the fuel sender at the cover assembly. Begin by squeezing the sides of the reservoir and releasing the tab opposite the fuel level sensor. Move clockwise to release the second and third tab in the same manner.
  7. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Fuel pump electrical connection by lifting the cover assembly
    • Baffle and pump assembly from the retainer by rotating the fuel pump baffle counterclockwise
    • Fuel pump outlet by sliding it out of slot
    • Fuel pump outlet seal
To install:
Install or connect the following:
    • Fuel pump outlet with a new seal by sliding it in the reservoir cover slots
    • Fuel pump and baffle assembly onto the reservoir retainer by rotating it clockwise until seated
    • Lower retainer assembly partially into the reservoir by aligning all 3 sleeve tabs and pressing the retainer onto the reservoir making sure all 3 tabs are firmly seated

    NOTE Gently pull on the fuel pump reservoir to assure it is secure. If not secure, replace the entire fuel sender.
    • Connector retainer to the wiring harness and the fuel pump
    • External fuel strainer
    • Snapring, if equipped to the retainer slots while holding the modular fuel sender assembly down or use Fuel Sender Lock Nut Tool J-39765 in order to install the cam lock ring

How do I fix or replace a fuel line?

Hi Merre:
Sure, blame the kid.
Easiest fix would be to cut out the section where the hole is and install a piece of flexible tubing. CAUTION! Gas is extremely flammable. Use appropriate tools (NOT a Zip Cutter).
Best fix would be to replace fuel line.
I'd suggest that youcheck with a parts supply to see if appropriate gas lines are available. You may need to use a flaring tool if you have to "custom build" the line.
It's OK kid, the cars is 15 years old and the line was probably rusted.

How do i go about changing my fuel filter i got a new fuel filter for my 1995 dodge stealth SOHC 6cylnder basic model i know where its located n how to change it over but i heard that i need to find th...

The easiest way to relieve the fuel pressure is to start your engine and pull the Fuel Pump Relay - car should die. Now there is no fuel pressure. Turn the key to the off position and change out the fuel filter. Once the filter is changed, put the relay back in and prime the system - turn the key on (don't start) for a few seconds. Turn off, turn key on for a few seconds then start the car. Check for leaks by filter. Easy peasy. Hope this was helpful :-)

How do I remove fuel pump from dodge 1998 1500

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.

1990 Buick Century,F.I. was dirty,car ran rough,son,trying to help sprayed carb cleaner on what he thought was a carb,not running at the time,now it needs to be primed to start,can l do anything ?

he was spraying into a throttle body that consists of an injector(TBI). these cars suffer terribly from EGS(ethanol gas syndrome). Do these simple steps. First; change out fuel filter(buy 2 of these-get the cheapest ones you kind find). Buy a can of SEAFOAM when you get the filters. You need to fill tank with as much Premium fuel as you can.<p>
Change out filter, add SF to gas. Keep car running at least 5 minutes on as steady an idle as you can. Drive car hard for at least 2-3 miles. When you get it home; change out fuel filter again.<p>
The fuel and the emission systems should start to get better. One other thing: buy a new PCV valve(probably cost4-6 bucks) replace it also.<p>
Clean out air filter or replace. Do not!, use carb cleaner or ether again. This should be helpng the cleansing process by now. Your car is full of corn liquor by-product and excessive amounts of water. It's in your fuel; your emission systems and your TBI. Your pump may be filled with it, and not have enough Psi to allow the pump to pump properly. In extreme cases, we've had to replace pump, remove fuel tank and clean it.<p>
When this is all done, always add SFoam every 3-5000 miles to prevent this from happening again.<p>
And at times; the crank/cam sensor has to be replaced.<p>
I don't know how much this car is worth to you, but this is simplier than buying an engine.<p>
The worst case I've seen is the ethanol burns a valve and it has to be rebuild. So try this, I think you can rescue it. Good Luck.

Since repalacing fuel pump doesn't get fire

Take a look at the repair history. If you have fuel and you know the fuel is entering the cylinders then you need to find out why there isn't spark. Inspect spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor, then the coil, distributor, wiring, ignition switch, and ignition module.

Fuel filter location

Follow the lines under the car from the fuel tank, if you don't see it somewhere along the lines near the rear half of the car, it does not have one. Many chrysler cars have changed to a screen in the gas tank which is changed with the fuel pump when it dies.
