SOURCE: think fuel pump bad in 1995 jeep have a 1998 jeep

If both have the same engine and both have a remote filter (on the frame rail) likely they are the same. (or if both do not have filter there).Make sure that both harness wiring setups go to the same places on the pump also.

SOURCE: 1998 cheverolet c1500 bad fuel pump need to drop the fuel tank

First have as little fuel in there as possible, half a tank will be heavy, 1/4 tank is manageable. You can buy pumps at the auto parts store.
Disconnect the battery, open the filler cap. Remove the filler hose and vent tubePut a jack with a section of 2x4 under the fuel tank. Undo the strap bolts, then lower the tank enough so you can disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connectors.
Once tank is removed you will need a flat blade screwdriver or chisel and a hammer to remove the ring holding the fuel pump.
Remove the fuel pump then do the reverse to install (you may have to splice in a new connector).

SOURCE: how to replace a fuel pump on a toyota rav4 1998

you need to remove the rear seat to get to it, just keep in mind the system is preasurized, which in english means you need to loosen the fuel filter in the front of the car first, "THIS IS CRITICAL" if not you will cause gas to get all over the interior. The 96-00 rav4 has a hatch under the carpet, under the seats in the rear. it is a pain to get to, once you remove the seats and carpet you will see it. I would recomend you bring it to a dealer if you dont know what you are doing. But if you are like me and figured what the hell, then you will want to take these steps first...
1. Let the car sit for a long period of time, about 3 hours or more.
2. Have a low amount of fuel, do not have a full tank
3. loosen the gas cap
4. Remove the intake, and the fuse box,
5. Loosen the top nut on the fuel filter under the hood to let out the remaining pressure, do not loose the O rings. This is a good time to replace that filter too, it is about 30 bucks from toyota.
6. open the hatch in the rear,
7. remove the electric feeds from the pump.
8. line the floor of the rav with Plastic, bags, or cardboard, or something.
9. remove old pump
10. install new pump
11. Re attach the fuel filter or install new filter
12. get car back together enough to start it, make sure you have all the lines connected, if not gas will get everywhere...
Good Luck, it was a FUN adventure to do this...

hi there
turn the car off and undo the hose that is going to the filter. fuel will run out a little but that will relieve the pressure
