    You have to drop the fuel tank and the pump connections are on top and the pump also comes out through the top of the tank. As long as the tank is not FULL it is fairly easy.

My 1999 Yukon Denali will just die and won't start

Check if the fuel pump has quit. Do you hear it turn on for a couple of seconds with key in on, not start? Have the fuel pressure checked, or check that gas is getting up to the engine.

Wont start..i put gas direct and i can run it from here to china

This is common , the problem will be low fuel pressure due to weak fuel pump. this can be check with a fuel pressure tester, the fuel pressure regulator could be bad, thats located inside the upper intake, and last spider injection system.

A fuel pressure tester can answer and slove this problem, i will bet it is a weak pump, the pump will run the truck but will not start it, sounds crazy but ture, all it takes is about 3 to 4 psi low and it will not start, it may also be a bad pressure leak down valve which is part of the fuelpump, good day

I have a 1999 crown vic,i love this car,however,it always has ran great,but i recently had a lugging problem at acceleration,it kinda chugs when you go to take off and then goes fine for about a mile or...

could be a number of things,regulator or fuel filter or fuel pump and/or strainer or even throttle position sensor,or bad coil pack or packs...check for engine codes,if nothing then its not an electrical sensor,like throttle position sensor,or coil packs,then try fuel filter,check for vacumm leak at the regulator,check the fuel pressure,if lower than 60 lbs approx.then probably a fuel pump or clogged pump strainer

99 yukon 180,000 mi. doesn't start. cranks forever, but won't start. Should I be able to hear the fuel pump when I turn on the key?

yes you should be able to hear the fuel pump run for about 5 seconds once the key is turned to the on pos. check to make sure you have spark. if you do try having someone spray air intake or carb cleaner into intake manifold while you crank. If the truck starts right up for a second (or stays running as you keep spraying) Id say you have a bad fuel pump and id change the sending unit also. (First check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay) GMC and Chevy are nororiously known for having bad fuel pump/sending unit problems. I have prob changed over 60 myself.

Im getting spark for the plugs and im getting fuel. i even put starter fluid in the intake and gas but it wont start it just turns over and nothing

A 1999 GMC Yukon has a fuel-injected engine. They are known for the fuel injector lines inside the intake plenum to break and flood the engine. If you are pouring starter fluid and gas in the intake you are only making it worse. replace the injector assembly with the "new improved" injector assembly and replace the plugs, then it will probably start.

This subject is covered by GM Technical Service Bulletin No.: 00-06-04-003B

See GM Parts List below. This replacement Injector assembly is now also available in the aftermarket.
