Park the vehicle in a place where you’ll have plenty of room to work. If you have access to a lift, that would be great.
Relieve any fuel pressure by removing the fuel cap. Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Pre soaking any required bolts/nuts with WD-40 prior to the job will help also. There are 3 lines and 2 electrical connectors to be removed from the fuel pump, and the filler and vent hoses that need to be removed from the back of the tank. There was also a small hose on the front part of the tank that needs to be removed, but we didn’t see it until we actually started lowering the tank. Just remember where everything hooks back up. Label the lines, if needed take picture with your cell phone.

Start by removing the skid plate, Once the skid plate is off, you’ll have access to the straps that hold the fuel tank on. The forward ******** the Blazer will pretty be rusted and not very stout. It's basically formed as a strap that ended in a threaded bolt and in most will end up breaking trying to remove it. Supported the tank with a floor jack with a transmission removal assembly on it.

You easily fixed the broken strap problem by welding a bolt to the strap. Once all the straps were loose, lower the tank just enough to get better access to the lines and connectors leading to the fuel pump. There is not much room to get in there on a Blazer. 
Once the tank is off, it’s a good time to look around in that area to see if there are any other problems that may need to be addressed.

If you are going to replace the fuel pump here's how to do it. Before removing the fuel pump, be sure to clean off all the junk that has collected around it. 
Replacing the float and sending unit is fairly simple. Just pay attention to how the old parts are removed, and install the new parts in reverse order. Be sure to get the wiring routed correctly and install the new seal that comes with the kit. The sock filter on the bottom of the pump was just a little bit clogged, so we made a trip to the auto parts store to get a new one. Luckily they had one that would match up. 
While we had the tank off, siphoned what fuel was in there and cleaned out the tank really well. 

The installation is basically just a reverse of the removal. Be prepared to take quite a bit of time for this project. It took much longer that I expected. Somewhere around 6-7 hours, but that’s including several little problems, getting propane for BBQ lunch, and making a trip to the parts store for a new sock filter for the bottom of the pump. And Mom and dad showing up.

Good luck and hope this help

First thing is try to get as much gas out as you can, 8# a gal. adds up, and get the blazer up on jack stands . secound unhook all elctrical wires and grounds and fuel lines, third unhook filler tube, and findly the tank straps, also if you got access to a floor jack that will help, to try and balance it on to get the straps off. But a couple extra hands can help a lot. If no help put some padding on the floor and let it drop out but only in extream cases, best to get some help.

95 chevy blazer how to remove fuel pump


Its in the gas tank, so you would need to remove the tank.

How To Replace The Fuel Pump On A 1998 Chevy Blazer


To start, the fuel pump assembly is mounted in the gas tank. Jack up the truck and support with jackstands. From underneath you will need to disconnect the filler and overflow hoses from the tank, by removing the worm gear clamps holding the hoses to the metal filler tubes. Unbolt the two straps that are bolted to the underneath side of the body holding the gas tank to the underside of the truck, support the tank with jack, after the straps are undone, lower the gas tank some to get enough room to remove the fuel lines and the fuel pump/sending unit connector, also remove the small vacuum hose at the other end of the tank. Let the tank down, with a hammer and a screwdriver, turn the lock ring until it releases the pump assembly and remove. You may want to drain the gas from the gas tank, it always seems that the fuel pump goes out when you have alot of gas in the fuel tank, that will help when you go to put the fuel tank back into the truck. Reverse the procedure to install. Some Blazers have a plastic tank and some have a steel tank. You'll need to know which one when you go to buy the new one. They run about $250.00 at Auto Zone. I would also replace the fuel filter at this time also so you are starting out with everything fresh. Should take 2-4 hours to do the job. Have a few large gas cans to put the gas from the tank in.

I have a 2001 Chevy Blazer and it is slow to take gas from the gas station. I was told to check the vent hose, but can not locate it. It does not run with the intake line nor does it Y off the intake line,...


the vent hose you are looking for is located off of the gas tank it should be beside your filler hose. if you don't see one there then you tank has a vent on top that is the problen and probably needs replaced

Sometimes my 2000 chevy blazer will not start. If I hit the gas tank while it is being started it will sometimes start. I am wondering if this is a fuel pump problem or a fuel filter problem. It never...


Usually that is a bad fuel pump. Filter is not on the tank. Test it when it doesn't start, or listen, as when you first turn the key to "run", you should hear the fuel pump cycle.

Sounds like water/debris in the gas tank. Try adding dry gas to the tank. Changing the fuel filter also a good idea.
