SOURCE: having trouble dropping the tank please give me

Drain the tank with a fuel evacuation pump, then remove the straps that hold the tank in. Once you have done that slowly let the tank down. There will be hoses that are connected to the tank remove those. Then disconnect the fuel lines. Un-clip the electrical connection from the fuel pump, then lower it to the ground and drag it out.

Access to fuel pump on 1997 lumina


In a 97 lumina sedan, you have to drop the fuel tank. this is tricky in that the wiring harness and fuel lines have to be disconnected before removal. the lines can be tough because the fuel filter has a compression fitting on one end and a quick disconnect fitting on the other end. The compression fitting may be rusted solid and you can't use a torch on it. ok.. the how to. First try to empty the tank. second, using jack stands and blocking the front wheels, get the car up as high as you possibly can. Disconnect the fuel filler tube from the tank. loosen (do not yet remove) the tank straps and get some room to see the top of the tank. carefully disconnect the wiring harness from the pump/sensor unit. disconnect the fuel pressure and return lines. check your clearances and make sure you have it all disconnected. carefully position a floor jack under the tank. support the tank gently. remove the tank straps, drop the tank and bring it out you will see the pump assy and a ring that has tangs on it on the top of the tank. using a hammer and (preferrably) a brass drift push the ring to the left (counter clockwise) and as it loosens just unscrew it and pull out the pump. remember that the pump and the sending unit are an assembly. treat it gently if you plan on saving it! while you're there, be sure to replace that fuel filter!!! put it back in the way you got it out good luck! Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

I need to know the location of the fuel pump on a 1994 caviler


Hi! The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank itself. Unfortunately, you need to drop the fuel tank out to access it. This is done by using something to support the tank (a floor jack with a block of wood between them works well) and then loosening the bolt that holds up each gas tank strap.

I recommend that you spray the bolts liberally several times with a good penetrating spray, replacing the straps with new when you reinstall the tank, and putting some anti-seize on the bolts for next time.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

Where is the access panel for the fuel pump


There is no access panel for the fuel pump- You have to drop the tank to get at it!

1. Syphon any gas from the tank

2. Prop the gas tank with a support

3. Loosen the tank straps and fill hose strap then disconnect the straps on one side

3. Drop the tank

4. Disconnect the fuel lines and wiring harness

5. Pull the tank from under the vehicle, turn the pump seal counter clockwise then remove the pump- Careful not to damage the O-ring gasket as you may need to use it again because the new gasket may not fit properly

Install in reverse order

Go and find a book at your autoparts store. Then it will tell you how to change it out and if anything happened to it later, you could work on it then too. Thats what I do with my cars.
