Some fuel tanks have a drain **** that will allow you to drain all of the gas neatly. If you have a drain ****, it will be located at the lowest point on the tank. Loosen the valve and allow the gas to completely drain.
If your tank has no drain ****, you'll have to drain it by removing one of the fuel lines. The rubber hose that exits the tank at its lowest point will drain the tank fully. It will either be connected to an electric fuel pump, fuel filter, or to a hard fuel line that goes to the front of the car. Loosen the clamp on the end of the line that connects to the gas tank. Pull the hose off and allow the gas to run out of the tank into your container until it is drained completely.

The easiest way i know is to go and purchase around 7.00 dollars a hand pump like for boats take a sscrew driver and open the tank valve on the tank for puting nozzle in. put the long end of hose into tank and start pumping. the other way i have had to do is use a jack and lower the tank a little and take off the fuel pump and put a hose into the tank and syphon it out that way then finish lowering tank

Re 2000 chevy express van (cutaway chassis with camper built on it) .. how often does the fuel filter really need replacing and is there really no way to do it besides dropping the gas tank and risk...


the fuel filter should be on the drivers side under the van in between the fuel tank and the motor. Usually about where the transmission is on a 2000. It is not in the fuel tank.

If you change the filter every 30-36 thousand miles you will get the most life out of you pump. Most of them fail around the 100,000 mile mark when the filters have never been changed. I have seen them go as long as 300,000 miles with regular filter changes.

$8 for a filter, $300 for a pump. you can buy a lot of filters for $300!

I need to know where the fuel pressure sensor is located on the 2000 chevy express van.


There is not really a fuel pressure sensor. There is a fuel pressure regulator. The fuel pump pumps up pressure and the pressure regulator allows the fuel to return to the fuel tank if the pressure reaches 37psi in the 4.6 liter. It is located on the intake manifold. It is round about 3 inches in diameter, and has a fuel line on both sides of it.

How to change a fuel pump on a 2000 chevy astro van


It is located in the gas tank, you will need to remove the sending unit at the top fo the tank. To access the sending unit, you will need to drop the tank by removing the straps. It is a big tank so drain as much as possible and disconnect the batter before you start.

Hope this helps

How do I replace the fuel pump on a 2000 Chevy Express Van?


The pump is mounted inside the tank, you will either have to remove the tank or check to see if there is an access plate on the rear floor of the van above the fuel tank.
On those models the pump and sender unit are all in one. Check on Rockauto dot com for a price, their prices are generally very good.
