Just take out the fuel pump fuse, then run engine until it stalls. That's about the same as disconnecting the fuel pump and run engine until it stalls. Just disconnecting the pump will not relieve pressure, as there is a check valve at the pump which holds pressure in the line.
When engine stalls, there will still be some fuel in the line, maybe with a small amount of pressure, so use a rag to catch the fuel spill when you take line off at the filter.
are you using a gauge? is this the 1.0L engine 3cylinders.
Trottle body injection (TBI) >
running or not?
the correct way to do this is measure at the fuel filter test port
ill quote the FSM
Relieve fuel system pressure.
Disconnect the fuel inlet line at the fuel filter and install a suitable pressure gauge on the line.
Connect a jumper wire between the terminals of the fuel pump relay connector and check the system pressure on the gauge.
Fuel pressure should be 25-33 lbs.
As the pressure reaches 33 lbs., the relief valve in the pump should pulsate the pressure so it is always within specification.
If the pressure is above specification, check for restrictions in the fuel lines. If no restrictions are found, replace the fuel pump. If the pressure is below specifications, check for battery voltage to the fuel pump and correct as required. If battery voltage is found, replace the fuel pump or fuel pump relay.
Before removing the pressure gauge, relieve the fuel pressure again.
Reconnect the fuel line. Start the engine and check for leaks.
Don't think there is such a device. You can pull the fuel pump connector under the rear seat or try removing the fuel pump fuse located in the engine compartment or under driver's side dash. Once fuel pump is disabled start the car and let it run till it stops to relieve fuel system pressure.
The Fiero is equipped with a electric fuel pump and gauge sending unit mounted in the fuel tank. The pump is serviced and a complete unit by removing the fuel tank. REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
To reduce the risk of fire and personal injury, it is necessary to relieve the fuel system pressure before servicing any fuel system component. If this procedure is not performed, fuel may be sprayed out of the connection under pressure. Always keep a dry chemical (Class B) fire extinguisher near the work area.
Disconnect the negative (-) battery cable.
Relieve the fuel system pressure.
Remove the fuel pump fuse from the fuse block located in the passenger compartment. Start the engine and run until the engine stops due to the lack of fuel. Crank the engine for 3 seconds to ensure all pressure is relieved.
Drain all the fuel from the tank using a suction pump.
Raise the vehicle and support with jackstands.
Disconnect the wiring from the tank.
Remove the ground wire retaining screw from under the body.
Disconnect all hoses and filler neck from the tank.
Support the tank on a jack and remove the retaining strap nuts.
Lower the tank enough to disconnect the fuel sending unit wires.
Disconnect the fuel line, vapor line and return line.
Remove the tank from the vehicle.
Remove the fuel gauge/pump retaining ring by turning the cam lock ring counterclockwise using a spanner wrench such as tool J-24187.
Remove the gauge unit and the pump.
Inspect the fuel pump attaching hose for any signs of deterioration and replace if necessary. Also, check the rubber sound insulator at the bottom of the pump.
Push the fuel pump assembly into the attaching hose.
Using a new O-ring seal, install the pump assembly into the tank.
Install the cam lock ring over the pump and lock by turning clockwise with a spanner wrench J-24187 or equivalent.
Support the tank on a suitable jack.
Raise the tank enough to connect all fuel and filler hoses.
Connect all electrical wires to the pump and tank.
Raise the tank and install the retaining strap nuts. Use new sound reducing pad if they are damaged. Check all connections and wire to ensure proper installation before refilling the tank.
Refill the tank with unleaded fuel. Reconnect the negative (-) battery cable.
Start the engine and check for fuel leaks and gauge operation.
IMPORTANT: Do not skip the fuel system pressure release step. Injury and other damage can result! Safety Step! Relieving Fuel System Pressure
· allow engine to cool · relieve fuel system pressure · put on your eye protection Before you begin the job of replacing your fuel filter, you must
relieve the pressure in your fuel system. A fuel injection system
operates under very high pressure. If you don't release this pressure
before you start unscrewing fuel lines the result can be explosive. Do
this before you attempt to change the fuel filter. To release the
pressure in your fuel lines (and fuel filter) you'll need to locate the
fuel pump fuse in the fuse box. If you don't have a fuel pump fuse,
find the relay that operates the fuel pump. Once you've found the fuel
pump fuse or relay, start the car. With the engine running, pull the
fuse or relay out. If you pulled the right one, the engine will quickly
die. Since it's using all of the pressurized fuel in the system, the
fuel lines won't be pressurized when you crack the fittings on your
fuel filter. Now that you've relieved the fuel pressure you can remove the old fuel filter. If you didn't do this yet, you must go to the previous step and do it. Very dangerous!
remove negative cable from battery, relieve fuel pressure(by removing fuse and run till it dies, or relieve pressure from shraider valve on engine) the filter is just ahead of gas tank,depress the white disconnect tabs , and remove line. use a wrench for other side of filter, detach fuel filter holder and remove. installation is in reverse order.
