Spray oil the bolts at the back end of the straps and let set for a while. Then remove the nuts securing the tank straps to let the tank down, remove the hose and gage wire from the tank and pull it out.

I have a 2000 Blazer, has a few bumps and bruises but thats just character. Anyways I love the thing. i just read the last coment about the spark plugs, that helps also i am a do it your selfer and i have...

well the best way i found is to first siffen the gas out those tanks are heavy without gas and akward to handle, what i would do is place a jack with a board on it to help stablelize it and help with the lifting then i would loosen the bolt straps nearly all the way so i could get to the lines and remove them be sure to use 2 wrenches do not twist the lines they will break and or crack once thats done remove the electric clipted on wires and ground wire if its bolted to tank then remove the large fill up tube then finish removing the strap bolts while hanging on to the tank once bolts are out begin lower the jack holding on at the same time till your all the way down then gently slide tank off of jack , climb out from under vehicle then pull the tank out to replace sending unit then do it all in reverse.

How do i remove the gas tank from my 1999 chevrolet trail blazer

Depending on how rusted your Blazer is. You either remove the bolts from the straps or cut the straps off and replace both. Get a 2x4 and place of lift jack. The tanks should be about empty or a pain to lift. Lift the jack up to take some of the weight off the tank. Try to unbolt straps. If no luck. Get out a hand power grinder. Start cutting. That's about the only way I know. We removed my son's fuel tank off a 1988 GMC pickup last Sunday. Everything was rusted BAD The straps had to be cut. We didn't have any replacements. So we used 3 ATV orange racket straps. Worked fine so far.

95 chevy blazer tank removal

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
