2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 Replace the fuel pump - ?

The truck is cranking but their isn't the smell of fuel. I crossed my fingers hoping it was just low on fuel, but no ... it still wouldn't start. Is there any easy way to remove and replace the fuel pump? photos would be useful.

    can this be done by a non professional? but is somewhat mechanically inclined.

First check the fuel pump fuse in the fuse panel to make sure its not blown. Chances are that it is the fuel pump, that is a common problem with chevy trucks. The easiest way to access the fuel pump is to remove the bed of the truck from the frame. Good luck. dont forget to rate.

To replace to pump all you need to do is remove the bed held down with 8 bolts and then you have full access to the tank and pump. Took me about 1.5 hours and 2 extra sets of hands.

Not sure what to do but the 2000 chevy silverado 1500 Z71 V8 truck that i have wont take in gas. we thought that it was the fuel pump so we replaced that and the fuel filter but the truck still wont start....


Did you check the voltage to the pump to insure it was getting full power? Check the fuel pressure regulator? Also take a manual fuel pressure reading. A faulty crank sensor will also cause a no start condition.

If you have'nt tried to start it with the wrong key setting a security violation then you probably need a crank position sensor.

2001 chevy silverado won't start when warm


Possible weak spark from ignition coil or low fuel pressure due to weak pump. Try spraying carb clean into intake throttle body when problem is present. If vehicle will start and run with a little spray then fuel pump is failing.
