Check inside the boot compartment for a removable patch over the tank that allows access to the fuel pump.

SOURCE: fuel pump replacement 1999 chevy tahoe

That has alot to do with the price of the pump, i know there expensive. The thing to do is call an auto parts store and ask what the price is for a pump, once you know that, then you can call around to shops in your area and get there price or labor rates, and that will give you an idea what it will cost. I know its alot of calling but its the best way, so you can guard aginst being riped off. It should not take a good michanic more than 2 to 3 hours to chg. one.

SOURCE: 1999 Cadillac Deville - How to replace fuel pump?

Hello,

Unfortunetly Cadillac does not have an access panel for fuel pump access until the newer years. You will need to drop the tank. Also, don't let the tank come slamming to the ground, make sure you take it slow so you dont dammage the lines to the sending unit.

Good Luck!

Fuel guage does not work 1999 Chevy Tahoe


the 100% for sure cause of this problem is the sending unit for the fuel guage, it is located in the gas tank. U may have to replace the fuel pump module to get the sending unit, as a rule they are one piece, if u have over 100,000 miles that is a good idea anyway.
