The fuel pump is in the gas tank, the best way to do this is to get some friends and remove the bed from the frame. There is i believe 8 bolts that hold the bed to the frame, and don't forget to remove the hardware to the gas tank filler neck. Once the bed is off the frame, you can get to the fuel tank. Disconnect the wire harness and might as well replace the harness since there only $12.00 last i looked, disconnect the fuel line and return line. Remove the fuel pump retainer ring and lift up on the fuel pump sending unit. To install replace the rubber O ring and oil it before installing the new fuel pump sending unit. Install the fuel sending unit retaining ring, gas lines, new wire harness, and filler tube. Good lime also to check the hose to the EVAP since you can inspect them, look for any dry rot to the vacuum lines and replace if needed. Reinstall the bed and use lock tight to the bed bolts or replace them with stainless bolts. Good luck and hope this helps, oh and you might as well change the fuel filter while your have the bed off. The other way is to drop the gas tank which means draining the tank and raising the truck.

Distributor not rotating after changing the fuel pump on 3.8 chevy


The 3.8 liter engine has a timing chain. The distributor shaft should be turning if your timing chain is still intact. Have you pulled it out and reinstalled it? Maybe you did not get it seated right.
This must not be a '99 Silverado as shown in the heading? Give a reply back, and explain please. You replaced a fuel pump in the gas tank, and now the distributor shaft is not rotating? There is no plausible relation between the two-please explain.

Replaced fuel pump now no power to pump


If you unplug the connector for the pump, you should have battery voltage on the pump circuit from the relay for 3 seconds. You would have 5 or 6 volts for the gauge sending unit.
You should be able to jumper the pump relay and get 12 volts at the pump connector.

the only way to tell for sure is to have the engine anylized with a real time scanner, it could be a sensor or actuator that is not throwing a code so a scan for codes will not help, if all seems to be od start looking for vacuum leaks, air bubbles in the fuel, fuel pressure constant, etc

1996 chevrolet fuel pump relay


you are going to have to have the wires from the underside of the relay checked for a short or the contacts for the relay to plug to for tightness.Fuel pumps usually dont burn up relays wires burn up relays like maybe even a pinched wire when the tank was removed and re installed.
