1999 2500 Chevy 4 x 4 Silverado 4 Fuel Pump

Need to know the best way to change the fuel pump.
1. Drop the fuel tank?
2. Raise the bed?
3. Cut a hole out of the bed over the fuel pump to access?

What are the dangers involved with accidental ignition of gas fumes or the gas itself from static shock?

Is the fuel pump located in the front or the center of tank?
Thank you,

Before all that do a pressure test and see if the pump is working..
the tank has to be drained and removed.i would not cut a hole in the box.
disconnect the battery,and ground the pump assembly if you are worried about static.

I have a 2004 chevy durahmax the fuel gage doesnt work i have ran outta fuel 2x bc when its on 1/4 tank its really empty how do i fix it bc this is getting rediculous


It sounds like you need to replace the sending unit which is located in the fuel tank and is part of the pump unit. Some you can buy just the sending unit and others it comes as a module which means the pump and sending unit come together. Not sure what yours has. When changing I find it easier to remove the bed that to drop the fuel tank.

Whats the best wat to chang my fuel pump


Either jack up the truck and drop the tank risking need of more repairs to straps or remove bed from truck and do it while the tank is still on the truck .
I have in the past with old rusted beaters cut a hole in the bed of the truck to access the fuel pump and put the bedliner back in so I didnt see the hole.

I have a 1989 chevy 1500 5.7, where is the fuel pump on tank?


You "could" remove the bed, or just lift it high enough to work on the tank. There are 6 or 8 bolts depending if it is a short bed or long bed. But you should undo the 2 straps from underneath, the filler tube from the gas cap filler, and lower the tank with a jack. Another problem these trucks have is the wiring connection to the sending unit/fuel pump assembly. GM recommends to replace this harness end when you work on it. (about $12.00 for the harness connection). These sending units/pumps retail about $300-$400, but you can find them on line starting about $120.00.

How to change a fuel pump on a 2000 chevy 1500


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. You can either drop the fuel tank and remove the pump or get 3 friends and unbolt the bed and then remove the pump. Once you have access to the pump, disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connections. Then remove the pump from the tank.

either drop the tank or remove the bed, I have worked on some chevy trucks that you HAD to remove the bed as the bolts that hold the tank were inaccessible.

  1. With the engine turned OFF , relieve the fuel pressure at the pressure regulator. Refer to the fuel relief procedure in this section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle on jackstands.
  4. Drain the fuel tank, then remove it.
  5. Using a hammer and a drift punch, drive the fuel lever sending device and pump assembly locking ring (located on top of the fuel tank) counterclockwise. Lift the assembly from the tank and remove the pump from the fuel lever sending device.
  6. Pull the pump up into the attaching hose while pulling it outward away from the bottom support. Be careful not to damage the rubber insulator and strainer during removal. After the pump assembly is clear of the bottom support, pull it out of the rubber connector.
  1. Connect the fuel pump to the hose.

Be careful that you don't fold or twist the strainer when installing the sending unit, or you'll restrict fuel flow.
  1. Install a new O-ring on the pump assembly and then position them into the fuel tank.
  2. Turn the locking ring clockwise until its tight.
  3. Install the fuel tank and connect the battery cable.
If you dont feel like dropping the tank and hassling with the hangers because they often break cut a hole in the bed of your truck over the tank where the fuel pump is but be careful not to hit the wires. dont cut the piece out completely cut it so you can pry it up to oneside

lifting the truck bed off the frame works best if you dont have a lift..take the fuel neck loose from bed and remove bolts holding bed to frame from the drivers side..loosen the bolts on passenger side..raise the bed on drivers side while watching bumper to bed clearance on passenger side.. you should get enough clearance to remove fuel pump from tank

take the six bed bolt loose and then take three buddies slide the bed back put in the new pump slide it back n place and put the bed bolts back in. if u drop the tank u can easily break the hard plastis lines that go to the fuel tank. u only have to take the fill lines and taillight wires loose this way its alot quicker, and easier.
