Fuel pump 2001 silverado

You can either drop the tank, if its near empty that is; but it hardly ever works out that way. When I did mine I took the bed off. Unbolt I believe 8 bolts , wiring for taillights, and (I used my cherry picker) lift the bed up. The pump assy goes into the tank, some twist out, some might have a couple screws holding it. I don't remember. Assembly is the opposite of removal.

Where is the fuel pump REALLY located on a 2001 Silverado???

It is inside the fuel tank, it is actually easier to remove the bed than to drop the tank to change it.

2001 silverado v6 died while pulling into parking lot. Cranks but won't start. Can't hear the fuel pump engage when I turn on the key. Replaced fuel pump relay. Does this mean I have a bad fuel pump?

Try spraying an alternative fuel such as induction cleaner into the throttle body and see if it runs.If it does most likely cause is the fuel pump.

Gas gauge will jump around show empty when not 2001 silverado 2500 ck 4x4 ext cab

The gas gauge is part of the fuel pump assembly. I just replaced mine on 2X4 same truck. New assembly from GM is $500, $275 from Auto Zone. If inclined to do yourself, you can tilt bed up in drivers side. See other posts about changing fuel pump.

Process to change fuel pump on 2001 chevy silverado 1500

take the six bed bolt loose and then take three buddies slide the bed back put in the new pump slide it back n place and put the bed bolts back in. if u drop the tank u can easily break the hard plastis lines that go to the fuel tank. u only have to take the fill lines and taillight wires loose this way its alot quicker, and easier.

Changing fuel pump 99 slverado

there are 2 ways to do this. you can drop the tank or take the bed off. i prefer to take the bed off it was easy er that way for me. but once you get to the top of the tank there will be a ring that holds the pump in just take a pair of pliers and take it off but you will need a special tool to take the fuel lines off because they are quick connect lines but once you get it unhooked it should just slide out the top.
