SOURCE: firing order diagram on a 1987 mazda B2600

To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired.

SOURCE: fuel tank vent valve?

If it`s the one on top of the tank then yes it can be replaced without replacing the whole tank.In order to remove it you have to push down and counter clockwise.If you can`t get one at the dealer then go to the salvage yard and take one off a tank there.If it comes off you could get s check engine light.Good luck.

Do you have a wiring diagram for the gas gauge on a 1987 chevy r1o pickup truck

I don't have a diagram but I can tell you the pink wire going into the tank should be the sending unit for the gauge.

How do i replace the fuel level sensor on a 2005 kia sorento

What You'll Need:
  • flat head screwdriver
  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • hammer
  • open end wrenches
  • replacement fuel tank sending unit
    Before you begin, disconnect the negative battery cable to be sure no electrical sparks are possible. You're dealing with gas which is highly flammable!Your fuel tank sending unit is located in the top of the fuel tank, but is accessible under your back seat (or under the carpet in your trunk) on some models. The sending unit will be protected by an access cover, usually held on with a couple of screws. Lift your back seat or trunk carpet and locate the access cover for your fuel tank sending unit. Remove the screws holding the cover in place and remove the access cover to reveal the fuel tank sending unit.
    Safety Note: Gasoline is highly flammable. By removing the fuel tank sending unit, you are opening the gas tank. Be sure there are no sources of spark or flame nearby.
    With the access cover removed, you'll see the fuel tank sending unit right there on top. It will have a wiring harness plugged into the top (this tells your gas gauge how much fuel is in the tank). Unplug the wiring harness and move it safely to the side. If your fuel tank sending unit is screwed or bolted in place, remove the screws or bolts. Some sending units are a "twist-lock" type. They work like the old twist-lock gas caps. You'll see a few notches along the outer ring of the sending unit. Place the tip of a sturdy flat head screwdriver in the notch and gently tap it counter-clockwise. The sending unit will rotate until it's loose. (the picture above shows the fuel tank out of the car to illustrate the fuel tank sending unit's location). Now you can remove the fuel tank sending unit in one piece. Attached to it is a long rod with a float at the end, so you might have to try a couple of different angles to get it out. As usual, installation is the reverse of removal. Don't forget to plug the new sender in or it won't send you anything!

Where's my fuel filter on a Honda accord 2001

The fuel filter is part of the Fuel Tank Unit which includes the fuel pump, fuel filter, and sending unit. The Fuel Tank Unit is located in the top of the fuel tank and is accessed through a panel on the floor of the trunk. By removing the spare tire and carpeting you will see a round cover in the trunk floor panel. Once this access penal is removed, you can look straight down onto the top of the fuel tank and see the top of the fuel tank unit. That will be the piece that will need to be removed to get to the fuel filter.

Do i have to drop gas tank to change fuel pump on 99 grand am gt?

Yes. It's not a terribly difficult job though. First back the car onto some ramps and set the parking brake firmly. Disconnect the electrical connector for the fuel pump / fuel level sending unit. You will need to loosen the hose clamps around the fuel filler neck hose and the vent hose and remove the rubber hoses at one (either) end. There will be some 'quick disconnect' fuel lines. To disconnect these, you need to squeeze the two white plastic inside pieces together and pull them apart (it will be very obvious when you see them). Put a hydraulic floor jack under the gas tank with a piece of wood on top of it to distribute the weight of the tank over a larger area. Then you can unscrew the two straps that hold the fuel tank up and gently and slowly lower it down. Once it is down, there is a lock ring on the top of the tank that holds the fuel pump / fuel level sending unit assembly in the tank. Use a brass punch to loosen the lock ring to avoid sparks. Make sure to replace the fuel strainer and any O rings when you do the pump. Installation is (as always) the reverse of removal. Also, remember to drain any remaining fuel from the tank while you have it removed. This will make installation a lot easier.

Fuel pump replacement instructions for a 2003 chevy cavalier

ON this vehicle you have to remove the fuel tank.

On the top of the tank you will see a big white plastic piece. This is the top of the fuel pump/sending unit assy.

remove the lines from the sending unit. unplug connectors from the sending unit.

Now theres a round metal piece thats the lock ring. You need to use something like non-steel rod, wood dowell, sawed broom handle, etc and a hammer.. tap on it in in a counterclock wise direction to remove. Install going clockwise.

Some guys use just a long steel chisel or screwdriver and pound on that. Whit that does get the job done, it created a big risk for sparks and sparks plus half a tank of gas is a very bad combination hence why i reccomend you use something aluminum, brass, or wood to rotate the lock ring.

If your caviler has a plastic lock ring and not a metal one, youll need a super large pair of chanel lock pliers or a chain wrench to rotate it. You can try the chisel and hammer method on this lockring but it usually gets destroyed in the process.

Best of luck and be safe!

1987 Jeep Commanche Laredo, long bed, 4wd, auto inline 6. Just had $1,500 worth of drive train work (front to rear) done on truck. On the 90 mile trip back home gas started coming down from top of tank...

I had no problem finding a sending using and gaskets for $40 on the Internet.!

But since the last one worked fine for 23 years, I think you are way over reacting. In fact, the sending unit is not nearly as likely as just the $2 seal. And I would not even drop the tank, much less replace it. If access is difficult, I usually just make my own access hatch by cutting looking at and measuring one in a salvage yard, either using a cutoff disk or sawsall to make an opening, and then adding metal to the edge so that you can screw the opening back down again, sealed with duct tape.
