Think this model is a fuel sending unit located INSIDE the gas tank. Sure it needs one? Check all your fuses and relays associated with the fuel delivery system. When you turn your key to the :"Run" or "On" position, do you hear a whine coming from the rear (fuel tank area) of your car? If you do, you dont need a fuel pump. If not, double check all fuses and relays and wires & connections. The part is expensive and very difficult to replace by the average shade tree mechanic. I would rather pay someone else to do it and I am pretty good with good tools - it is that difficult. Good luck.

1999 ford econoline e 250 low voltage (7volts) at fuel pump, where is the relay located and how can it be identified?

The fuel pump relay should be near the driver side fender or the battery along with other relays. It should have a dark green and yellow wire that goes to the inertia switch, a red wire that goes to the EEC relay, and two other wires that may be light blue and orange.
The wire that powers the pump goes to the inertia switch then to the pump.

Wheres the fuel pump on a 2002 pontaic grand prix

Hello jame.....

The fuel filter is located under the car on the driver side, between the front and back door.

Your fuel pressure should be 53-59 p.s.i. Change your fuel filter first and see if it goes up. But like you suspect it is likely your pump. The pump is an assembly with the gage sender included is around $485 retail.


Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Where is the feul pump located on an 1994 acura vigor? and how to i change it?

under the back rear passenger seat, The fuel pump itself is located with the fuel pump assembly. Locate the fuel pump assembly top which has 6 bolt with your fuel line and some hose going into. Consider first by reliefing the fuel pressure by taking out the fuel pump relay and starting your engine until it dies first before proceeding to taking out the fuel pump. You then will need to take the fuel line connection out and the hose leading to it, make note of what goes to what connection. Unscrew the bolts, and slowly take your fuel pump assembly out. There you will find a motorize round shape object which is your fuel pump. Take this out. Resintallation is reversal, make sure your fuel relay is installed back on after installation to start your car. I recommend replacing the whole fuel pump assemby, it's less labor intsensive.

Wont idle or start without priming tbi

first check fuel pressure with a mechanical fuel gauge that attaches to fuel line schrader valve. around T.B.I. if no pressure with key on check fuel pump relay for correct operation, and also the oil pressure switch has the fuel circuit to it so possible oil pressure switch also. fuel pump has a check valve to keep fuel from going back to tank, so when u turn key on fuel pressure should go up within 1-2 seconds on gauge. if fuel pressure goes down quickly, possible bad fuel check valve, change fuel pump and fuel pump check valve (located right above fuel pump inside tank)

How do you change the fuel sending unit on a Chevy Malibu? The unit is located, so I am told, on top of the fuel tank (not inside) where the fuel pump goes into fuel tank. Any idea how much would it cost...

The fuel "level" sending unit is located on the side of the fuel pump module, see red arrow on picture below. The fuel tank will need to be dropped and the fuel pump module removed in order to replace the fuel level sending unit. You can expect to pay a couple hours of labor to remove the tank and replace the level sending unit.

the fuel tank pressure sensor is located on top of the fuel pump module. The fuel tank will still need to be lowered to get at it but the fuel pump module does not need to be removed from the tank to replaced it.

Change fuel pump, is there a reset switch to start fuel pump

If the car has been in a collision, some have a centrifugal switch which will cut off the power to the fuel pump. Typically this is located on the interior of the car behind a panel, sometimes in the door jambs. Even if there hasn't been a collision, it's worthwhile to see if you can find this switch and determine if it's been tripped. It works like a circuit breaker, you just press the button back in the reset.

If this isn't the case (or if your car doesn't have a shutoff switch), then your problem could be the fuel pump relay. Check your fuse panel to see if there's a diagram that gives you the location of the relay, then see if when you jump the relay if the fuel pump goes on (have a helper stand by the tank to see if they can hear it buzz). If it goes on my being jumped, get a new relay.

Hope this helps.

Do you have to drop fuel tank to change fuel pump on 93 mark v111

The fuel pump is a submerged type located inside the gas tank. You need to drop the tank to get to it since it goes in thru the top. Major undertaking, The fuel FILTER is located behind the cowling on the passenger side front wheel well. Better get a shop/Chilton manual if you plan on doing it yourself or you can pick up the fuel pump at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. Good luck and be safe, keep me posted be glad to answer any questions you may have.
