Installation instuctions for fuel pump - 1987 Buick LeSabre

    In regard to replacing your fuel pump..one must also add to also replace the screen on the bottom of the pump itself and to replace the fuel filter and the wiring harness that comes with the fuel pump package along with the o-ring on top of your fuel tank. 90% of all new fuel pump failure is because these steps weren't taken.

    Thank you, Norbert A.

You need to drop the fuel tank for that. first you need to release the pressure in the lines. (you can do that from under the hood or along the driver side frame at the fuel filter) then just disconnect the lines from the fuel tank and drop the tank. turn the fuel pump housing counter clockwise and carefully move it around until it comes clear of the tank. then replace it with the new pump and gasket and reverse the removal instructions and you are good to go.

    but if it is only a fuel pump failure, the wiring harness does not have to be changed. That would just be a waste of money. The screen at the bottom of the pump already comes attached to the new one, unless you go out and buy a cheap one.

The fuel pump is serviced as part of the fuel pump module. The fuel pump module is installed in the top of the fuel tank and contains the electric fuel pump, fuel pump reservoir, inlet strainer fuel gauge sending unit, fuel supply and return line connections and the pressure regulator. The inlet strainer, fuel pressure regulator and level sensor are the only serviceable items. If the fuel pump requires service, replace the fuel pump module.
