Access to fuel pump

How to access the fuel pump. Is there an access panel or do I have to drop the tank? The car will just quit for no reason. Wait a bit and it may or may not start and run fine. This has been going on for a couple weeks and I'm thinking my fuel pump is starting to fail. I am going to investigate but I thought it would help if I new for sure if/where there is an access panel without having to drop the tank. I'm hoping it may be just a loose wire or something since it sure runs good when it runs.

It sounds like a wiring or fuse problem to me also. Unfortunately, there is no panel, the fuel tank will have to come down, BUT before you do that have the fuel pressure checked. GM vehicles are very picky and will not run right if the pressure is off by just a little.

I need to know how to drop the fuel tank so i can change my fuel pump please


You don't need to drop the fuel tank in a 1995 940. There is an access panel in the trunk. Under the trunk liner there is a panel to the left of the backseat access. Unscrew the 4 screws there and you should see a screw-top cover. Remove it and you will have access to the fuel pump and floater.

Need to know how to change fuel Pump with out dropping tank.


if memeory serves, you should be able to remove the rear seat and find the access panel for the top of the tank. this is where the wires and pipes connect, but it if you remove the ring holding this unit on top of the tank, you should be able to access and remove the pump quite easily

How do I change a fuel pump on a 1999 buick regal


The fuel pump is in the gas tank. more than likely you have to drop the tank to remove/replace the pump. I would contact you local dealers service dept. as some of those cars had an access panel under the back seat to access the pump without having to remove the tank.

If you have an access panel, it should be an hour or less job with common hand tools.

Do i need to drop the fuel tank in my 1991 toyota corolla to replace the fuel pump?


Unless there is an access panel above the fuel pump, yes you will have to drop the fuel tank. Look at the location of the fuel tank and how that corresponds to the vehicle. This will tell you where to look for an access panel. If you must drop the tank, then siphon as much fuel as possible out of the tank before removing it. You can purchase a very inexpensive hand pump at most auto parts stores.

If you have a carburetor then it will be on the side of your motor....if you have fuel injection, it is in the fuel tank. You have to drop the fuel tank.
