Question about Cars & Trucks
Not a big job. First disconnect your battery. Jack truck up or ramps. Undo the bolts to the fuel cell guard plat and remove it. Undo the 2 hoses going into the tank. This is your fill hose and the vapor recovery hose. Tank may be heavy so you will need a floor jack or transmission jack. If your a hill billy, you will find something lol. Place jack under the tank and just enough pressure to ease it when you undo bolts. Now undo the 2 bolts on the fuel tank straps. Move the straps as far as they will swing. Lower tank a little bit. On top of the tank, you will see 2 small hoses, and an electrical plug. . Sometimes these are quick clips, and sometimes it's clamps. undo then lower tank all the way. Make sure you lean the tank towards the front so you don't spill fuel. . On top of the tank you will see a big ring going around the whole sending unit. Clean all the dirt off the sending unit before you start. That way it doesn't get dirt in the tank. With a brass punch [ no spark ] tap this big ring counter clock wise . You may have to pry the locking tabs out while you do this. Tap the ring until its loose. Before pulling out the sending unit, clean it all again Pull sending unit out [ sometimes it sticks ]. Be careful not to lose the rubber O Ring around the unit. Take pump and unit out and replace pump [ easy. Replace the opposite of removal. Good luck please rate my solution Cheers from Nova Scotia!!
