2003 s-19 4.3l engine slow to fill fuel tank


By pass pipe crimped or blocked, most tanks have a pipe from the top of the tank to the neck of the filler to allow air to escape from the tank as the fuel is put in. If the pipe gets blocked, air has to come back up the filler pipe and it bubbles the fuel and backs it up to the filler causing the pump to knock off. Hope that helps.

I HAVE A PROBLEM ON THE FUEL ASSEMBLY OF A VOLVO S60 WHEREBY THE FUEL IS NOT MOVING FROM ONE TANK TO THE OTHER


Check the fuel cap on the tank that is not emptying or check the valve on the top of the tank is not blocked. There should be a small pipe in the top of the tank that has a small ball valve in the fitting. Normally it allows air in but in the event of a roll over it shuts off and prevents fuel leaking out the pipe

Do i have to drop the tank to replace feul pump on 1998 ford thunder bird


Yes, the pump is inside the tank. Good luck!
Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Siphon or pump as much fuel as possible out through the fuel filler pipe.

NOTE

All vehicles have reservoirs inside the fuel tank to maintain fuel near the fuel pickup during cornering and under low fuel operating conditions. These reservoirs could block siphon tubes or hoses from reaching the bottom of the fuel tank. Repeated attempts using different hose orientations can overcome this obstacle.


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the exhaust pipe and exhaust shield, if equipped. Disconnect the fuel fill and vent hoses connecting the filler pipe to the tank. Disconnect one end of the vapor crossover hose at the rear over the driveshaft.
  3. If equipped with a metal retainer that fastens the filler pipe to the fuel tank, remove the screw attaching the retainer to the fuel tank flange.
  4. Disconnect the fuel lines and the electrical connector to the fuel tank sending unit. On some vehicles, these are inaccessible on top of the tank. In these cases they must be disconnected with the tank partially removed.
  5. Place a safety support under the fuel tank and remove the bolts from the fuel tank straps. Allow the straps to swing out of the way. Be careful not to deform the fuel tank.
  6. Partially remove the tank and disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connector from the sending unit, if required.
  7. Remove the tank from the vehicle.

To install:

  1. Raise the fuel tank into position in the vehicle. Connect the fuel lines and sending unit electrical connector if it is necessary to connect them before the tank is in the final installed position.
  2. Lubricate the fuel filler pipe with water base tire mounting lubricant and install the tank onto the filler pipe, then bring the tank into final position. Be careful not to deform the tank.
  3. Bring the fuel tank straps around the tank and start the retaining nut or bolt. Align the tank with the straps. If equipped, make sure the fuel tank shields are installed with the straps and are positioned correctly on the tank. Align the tank with the driveshaft.
  4. Check the hoses and wiring mounted on the tank top to make sure they are correctly routed and will not be pinched between the tank and body. Make sure the fuel vent hose is positioned above the vent retainer and not contacting the driveshaft.
  5. Tighten the fuel tank strap retaining nuts or bolts to 22-30 ft. lbs. (29-41 Nm).
  6. If not already connected, connect the fuel hoses and lines which were disconnected. Make sure the fuel supply, fuel return, if present, and vapor vent connections are made correctly. If not already connected, connect the sending unit electrical connector.
  7. Install the exhaust pipe shield, if equipped, and exhaust pipe.
  8. Lower the vehicle. Replace the fuel that was drained from the tank. Check all connections for leaks.

Removal & Installation
  1. Disable the air suspension, if equipped.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable and relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Siphon or pump as much fuel as possible out through the fuel filler pipe.

NOTE Fuel injected vehicles have reservoirs inside the fuel tank to maintain fuel near the fuel pickup during cornering and under low fuel operating conditions. These reservoirs could block siphon tubes or hoses from reaching the bottom of the fuel tank. Repeated attempts using different hose orientations can overcome this obstacle.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. If equipped with a metal retainer that fastens the filler pipe to the fuel tank, remove the screw attaching the retainer to the fuel tank flange.
  3. Detach the fuel lines and the electrical connector to the fuel tank sending unit. On some vehicles, these are inaccessible on top of the tank. In these cases they must be disconnected with the tank partially removed.
  4. Place a safety support under the fuel tank and remove the bolts or nuts from the fuel tank straps. Allow the straps to swing out of the way.
  5. Partially remove the tank and detach the fuel lines and electrical connector from the sending unit, if not detached previously.
  6. Remove the tank from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Raise the fuel tank into position in the vehicle. Connect the fuel lines and sending unit electrical connector if it is necessary to connect them before the tank is in the final installed position.

  5. Tighten the fuel tank strap retaining nuts or bolts to 20–30 ft. lbs. (28–40 Nm).
  6. If not already connected, connect the fuel hoses and lines which were detached. Make sure the fuel supply, fuel return, if present, and vapor vent connections are made correctly. If not already connected, connect the sending unit electrical connector.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. Replace the fuel that was drained from the tank.
  9. Check all connections for leaks.

Leaking gasoline from gas tank after being driven the gas tank is not full and it stops when I relieve the pressure by opening gas cap.


there are allot of hioses and connections to these tanks that can be leaking, the leak in almost always on the top of the tank, u are going to have to get under the car and look for gasoline stains from the leak, if the gas stains go up and over the top of the tank then the tank must come out fro repair.
