    Isn't the fuel tank selector on the dash by the light switch? THanks.

It is the fuel tank selector under the truck causing it

My nissan navara keeps loosing power while iam driving if i come off d accelarater and mash again d power comes back den it happen again and again

sounds like the bearings in your fuel pump are going. These bearing are undoubtedly not replaceable without replacing the entire fuel pump.

Fix: replace fuel pump.
Difficulty of fix: moderately advanced. You have to jack up car, drain the tank at the fuel tank drain
and then disconnect fuel lines (3), unbolt the (always rusty) bolts holding the tank, then go at the fuel pump replacement procedure, remembering to replace the fuel pump gasket.

If your car has a hatch in the top of the tank for fuel pump replacement (Hondas do), then use that access to get to the part - otherwise pull the gas tank and replace it that way, While you're in there, replace fuel filter(s) and strainer too (as a matter of course).

If the problem were clogged fuel filter, you'd experience loss of power going uphill, and it would not be able to made to "come back" by mashing on the gas pedal.

How to replace a fuel pump in a 95 sebring

yes it is in the tank.....and in some cases, easy access is through the trunk...just lift up the panels and see what's under by your spare tire.....if not, then you will have to drop the tank....
when replacing your tank, do the filter and strainer at the bottom of the pump at the same me, this will save you a lot of time and money mucking around...
if you're interested in doing the job yourself, then you must put the car on jack stands...locate the tank....loosen the hold down straps...i think they 2 15mm bolts....don't drop the straps right out at this point...undo the clamps holding in the filler tube. with a jack and a block of wood on it, place it under the tank and remove the straps.....SLOWLY lower the jack until the the top of the tank is expose enough to reach the fuel lines going into the pump. with caution not to break any clips or nipples, or lines, remove the two fuel lines going to the pump...there should be a clip there that you need to squeeze in and remove the lines...both are like that...unplug the electrical connector and vent tubes if any.....with a helper, slowly remove the tank from the filler neck tube and lower the tank...once tank is on floor, allow for lots of ventilation...there should be a locking ring holding the fuel pump into place...undo the locking ring, by either using a hammer and BRASS punch or if its a plastic ring, big pair of channel lock pliers.....remove and the pump will come up slightly...remove pump from tank, careful not to damage the level sender. very carefully remove from tank.....once out drain excessive fuel into the tank and remove strainer....and install new one....its very important you replace the strainer with your new pump....and new fuel filter as well...okay? good luck..

To change the fuel pump, you need to drain and lower your gas tank. This involves a bit of work, as the tank is long. After you get the straps loose, and the fuel lines and harness disconnected, lower the tank to the ground, and the fuel pump/ sending unit assembly is removed from the top side of the tank.

Not enough fuel pressure.
Hopefully, it might be a clogged fuel filter, start there... replace it. ($9 AutoZone).
Could also be fuel pump or the fuel pressure valve is stuck open, allowing fuel to drain back to the gas tank (no fuel in line).

How do you changs a fuel pump in a 1995 Dodge

You MIGHT not have to drop the tank. On the 95 LHS (same frame) you can go through the trunk. take the trunk lining out. Underneath it near the back seat there may be an access panel. If so it will make it MUCH easier to replace! Worth the time to check it out!

Bad gas in BMWX5

hello Idmathes, the best way is to remove the fuel sending units on the left and right sides so that you don't run anymore fuel through the system. the bad part of removing the sending units is that they have a specific installation angle. does the fuel just have water in it, or is it contaminated with dirt or something else? any foreign matter can damage the pump or injectors, and water can cause pump seizure. I would recommend removing the fuel with a suction pump and replacing the fuel filter after refilling your tank.

No power to fuel pump

What you need to do is drop the fuel tank and put a new fuel pump in it. I would drain the gas and put new gas in after you get the pump changed.
