Electric fuel pump replacement


Have a vehicle lift?Easiest way.Have to drain tank,disconnect wiring at tank, remove fill timber,disconnect emission tubes on both sides of car by frame rails,disconnect tank straps and lower gas tank out of car. When reinstalling tank,start the studs for the fuel tank straps by only a few threads so you'll be able to start the nuts when putting the straps back on. Replacing the pump with the tank out is easy. Take the 6 bolts that hold the pump to the tank out,remembering where the outlet on the pump points before removing it from tank. The new pump comes with all new wiring. Just install the new pump and tighten the 6 bolts. Use common sense in tightening them. Having a lift is the easiest way,super dirty,dusty job. Wear safety glasses!

I know the fuel pump is in the tank but my maen question is can i get it through the trunk or do i have to drop the tank. can u send me a pic?


Unfortunately you have to drop the tank. You have to remove quick connect fuel lines and more. Use a floor jack to support the tank, remove the tank strap retaining bolts, lower the tank enough to remove fuel sending connection, remove the tank, rotate lock ring counterclockwise. You need more information to remove the strainer from the pump and to pull the pump assembly out.
This is not a beginers job. Good luck.

REPLACEMENT of a fuel filter on a 1997


cd7cd12.gif
The fuel filter (1) is mounted next to the fuel pump module (2), on top of the fuel tank (3)


The fuel delivery system uses quick-connect fittings. The fuel filter mounts to the top of the fuel tank.
  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan underneath the fuel filter to catch any spilling fuel that will result from disconnecting the fuel lines.
It may be necessary to support the weight of the fuel tank with a block of wood and a floor jack. Once this is accomplished, loosen, but do not remove, the fuel tank strap bolts. Allow the fuel tank to lower just enough to access the fuel line fittings at the fuel pump module.

Disengage the fuel line quick-connect fittings from the fuel pump module

Be sure to place a drain pan underneath the filter line fittings to catch all fuel spillage

Locate the fuel filter in its mounting on top of the fuel tank. Detach the quick-connect fittings from the chassis fuel supply tube and fuel pump module by squeezing the quick-connect fitting retainer tabs together and pulling the fitting assembly away from the fuel line nipple. The retainer will remain on the fuel tube.

... then remove the fuel filter from the top of the fuel tank

  1. Remove the fuel filter mounting bolt and remove the fuel filter from the fuel tank.
To install:
  1. Install the fuel filter on the top of the fuel tank and tighten the mounting bolt.
  2. The fuel supply tube (to chassis fuel line), return tube (to pump module) and fuel supply (to fuel filter) tube are permanently attached to the fuel filter. The quick-connect fitting ends of the fuel supply and return tubes are of different sizes.
  3. Apply a light coating of 30W engine oil to the nipples of the fuel filter.
  4. Push the quick-connect fitting over the fuel line until the retainer seats and clicks into place. Be sure the retainer tabs have locked into the case of the fitting.
  5. If necessary, raise the fuel tank and tighten the fuel tank strap bolts.
  6. Lower the vehicle. Start the engine and check for leaks.

Fuel pump


moz-screenshot.jpgThe fuel pump is in the fuel tank.
1) Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery
Remove the fuel filler cap.
2) Relieve the fuel pressure by using a box end wrench on the 6mm service bolt at the fuel rail (on motor) while holding the special banjo bolt with another wrench.
Place a rag over the 6mm service bolt and slowly loosen the bolt one complete turn to release the fuel line pressure.
3) Remove the fuel tank.
Remove the drain bolt and drain the fuel from the tank.
Disconnect the 3P connector in the trunk
Remove the two-way valve cover and the fuel hose protector
Disconnect the hoses.
While supporting the tank, remove the strap bolts and the fuel tank should be free.
4) Disconnect fuel lines and connector from the fuel pump
Remove the fuel pump mounting nuts
5) When installing, torque fuel pump mounting nuts to 4 lb-ft (6 Nm). Torque fuel line bolt to 20 lb-ft (28Nm)
