Question about 1989 Chevrolet Corsica

Replace fuel pump

I need to replace the fuel pump in my 1989 Chevrolet Corsica 2 Ltr. Is it in the fuel tank? I see 2 straps that secure the tank, what else if anything holds the fuel tank in place. Will I need to detatch fuel lines, I hope not as they are quite rusted and seized?

    clint_brazil Thanks, I'm still working on removing the strapping bolts which are quite rusted and very hard to turn out but it is working & very slow going. Hope I can write you again if I have more trouble. Again thanks.

    RE: I need to replace the fuel pump in my 1989 Chevrolet Corsica 2 Ltr. More questions. Is it necessary to remove the exaust pipe. Not sure if there is enough room to remove/replace the fuel pump as the exaust pipe may restrict access. Please advise?

Just take those bolt loose, and your filler neck should be nothing more than like a radiator hose with clamps, get the clamp loose, get the tank loose from the filler tube, watch you wiring, don't let the tank fall down and damage the wiring, sometimes you can reach up in there and unplug it, sometimes there is enough slack to drop the tank down to the ground. Once the tank is disconnected the should be a metal ring with a few ridges on it, take a chisel, of a flat head screw driver and hammer and knock the ring loose, then you can get the fuel pump out.

Where is my fuel pump located

The fuel pump on your particular vehicle is located in the fuel tank. If you plan on replacing yourself, here are the steps to replace it.(You might want to have the gas tank as low as possible for this). 1. Disconnect the battery. 2. Raise and support the vehicle on jack stands. 3. Loosen the fuel tank straps to their lowest point.(Do not remove them completely yet). 4. Disconnect all electrical connections and any lines, including the fuel filler neck. 5. Remove the fuel tank straps and lower the tank. It is recommended to have someone help you, if not use a jack and some blocks to lower the tank. 6. With the fuel tank out, remove the ring keeping the fuel pump secured. 7. Disconnect electrical connections to the pump. 8. Installation is reverse if removal. I hope this helps.

Where is the fuel pump reset button in a 1993 Chevrolet Caprice?

The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank, to replace it u must remove the gas tank from the car, there is no other access, the tank is held in 2 steel straps, u will need the car as high off the ground as poss, use a good floor jack to raise the car, then support the car on jack stands, put the jack under the tank and remove the steel straps thgat hold the fuel tank in, drop the tank down far enough so u can remove the fuel lines and the electrical connectors to tank components, remove the filler neck screws and drop tank out, undo the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump module in place in side the tank and remove the fuel pump, be very careful not to create any sparks, these can catch fire very easy, do the job in an area with really good ventilation, best if done outside.
