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.

Please is it easier to take the truck bed off or drop the gas tank to change the fuel pump on a 1992 chevy silverado 1500


That depends on how much fuel is in the tank, if the tank is full or at least half, then removing the bed is easier, if the tank is less then half full removing the tank is easier. It all depends on where your fuel level is to what is easier. The only other thing that I can think of is that if you do not have a second person to help you remove the bed, then dropping the tank with a Jack would be easier, so it all depends on what your situation is.

Need to change fuel pump


Hello my name is Ben. Your fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. You can either unbolt and lower the fuel tank, or if you have 3 friends it is actually easier to unbolt the truck bed and lift it off to access the fuel pump.

How to change a fuel pump on a 2000 chevy 1500


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. You can either drop the fuel tank and remove the pump or get 3 friends and unbolt the bed and then remove the pump. Once you have access to the pump, disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connections. Then remove the pump from the tank.

I need to drain the gas tank on my 1998 Chev. k1500 to change the fuel pump. What's the easyest way to drain the tank?


Unbolt the bed bolts, remove the tailgate, unplug the light harness, and unbolt the fuel filler where it bolts to the bedside and get a couple of buddies to lift off the bed. That way you don't have to drop or drain the tank. It's much faster, on my truck it's only four bolts and the bed is not that heavy.

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.

Do I need to take the bed off to replace the fuel pump off my 2004 silverado 1500


U can do that or drop the fuel tank out, the manual says drop the tank, while you are in there replace the fuel pump connector, it will most likely be burned.

Fuel gauge stopped working


Can't say for sure since you did not include year of your car but more than likely it's the fuel sending unit that requires replacement. Some years you can replace just the level sensor on the fuel sending unit but both repairs involve dropping the gas tank and opening to remove the fuel sending unit.
