Location of gas pump

The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. The fuel tank will need to be removed from the car in order to service the fuel pump.

Its not that hard to do. Basically in a well ventilated area (gas will spill and there will be vapors!!) remove the filler neck hose from the tank, remove the evap lines from the charcoal canister. Unplug the fuel pump connector from the under body plug on the passenger side. Disconnect the fuel lines. Support the fuel tank and remove the two fuel tank straps (You may need to remove heat shields and temporarily move the exhaust off to the side as well). Lower the fuel tank slowly checking to make sure you have everything disconnected.

Once the tank is down remove any debris that has accumulated around the sending unit. Remove the lock ring and finally remove the fuel pump.

That's it in a nutshell.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer them. Thank you for using!

I have 2005 chevy truck 1500 want to know where is the fuel pump located?

The fuel pump is actually screwed to the top of the fuel tank and the body of the pump goes down inside the fuel tank. The tank must be lowered or the bed must be lifted to access the pump.

as far as i know the fuel pump is located in the actual fuel tank. It'll probably be spring loaded so that it will keep itself in place as the tank flexes. They usually have some kind of a "bobber" on them that tells the PCM and/or a guage how much fuel you have.

hope this helps,

Replace a fuel pump on a 1993 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

It sounds like a fuel line broke, most likely because it rusted through. The fuel pump is running otherwise you wouldnt see any fuel spewing out from under the car. Get under the car and see where the line broke. In most cases, you can replace the broken section of line and it will be fine.
To answer your question though, to replace the fuel pump, you will need to remove the fuel tank from the car, as the pump is attached to the sending unit inside the tank. To remove the tank, you will need to disconnect the fuel filler neck, the fuel lines, and unplug the electrical connector, then get a jack under the tank and remove the straps holding the tank in the car. Lower the jack and you will be able to access the top of the tank where the sending unit is located. Romove the lock ring holding it in, and remove it from the tank.

Where is fuel pump located in 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada?

The electric pump is attached to the fuel sending unit, located in the fuel tank.

  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable.
  3. Drain the fuel tank, then remove it from the vehicle. Refer to the procedure found later in this section for details.

    Using the GM fuel gauge sending unit retaining cam tool No. J-24187, J-36608 (or equivalent) or a brass drift and a hammer, remove the cam locking ring (fuel sending unit) by twisting counterclockwise. With the locking ring released, carefully lift the sending unit from the fuel tank.

    Remove the fuel pump from the fuel sending unit, by performing the following procedures:
    1. Pull the fuel pump up into the mounting tube, while pulling outward (away) from the bottom support.

    When removing the fuel pump from the sending unit, be careful not to damage the rubber insulator and the strainer.
      1. When the pump assembly is clear of the bottom support, pull it out of the rubber connector.

    To install:
    1. Inspect the fuel pump hose and bottom sound insulator for signs of deterioration, then replace, as necessary.
    2. Push the fuel pump onto the sending tube.
    3. Using a new sending unit-to-fuel tank O-ring, carefully lower the sending unit/fuel pump assembly into the fuel tank.

    When installing the sending unit, be careful not to fold or twist the fuel strainer or it may restrict the fuel flow.
    1. Secure the sending unit by turning or driving the lockring clockwise and into position under the tabs.
    2. Install the fuel tank assembly to the vehicle.
    3. Connect the negative battery cable and check for proper pump operation.
NOTE: A special tool is usually available to remove or install the fuel pump locking cam

A brass drift and a hammer can be used to loosen the fuel pump locking cam

Once the locking cam is released it can be removed to free the fuel pump

99f150 4wd, When replacing fuel pump, we broke a sensor off of

Fuel tank pressure sensor.
The basic part number is 9C052.
Give the dealer your VIN and this basic number and he should be able to get the correct part number for you.
The PCM uses this sensor along with VSS to determine when to run the EVAP system.

To replace:

Remove the fuel tank
Disconnect the electrical connector.
Press down and rotate the fuel tank pressure sensor counterclockwise and remove it from the fuel tank.
