Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
First disconnect your battery, drain your fuel tank, then support your fuel tank with a jack, then take the 3 bolts out on your filler neck by your gas door, then take the gas tank plastic shield off, then loosen the gas tank straps, then make sure you drop the tank a little to be able to reach up and loosen the hoses on the fill neck and then remove the hoses. Then install the new fill neck.
Then reverse everything to put back together.
But since you have everything opened up, take the time to look over everything before you put it back together, replace anything badly rusted or broken, no sense to have to do this all again.
I would say if doing this on the ground with jacks and jack stands, with all hand tools, this should take you any where from.an hour or two, depending how badly rusted everything is, it's best to.spray all rusted nuts and bolts down the night before a couple of times. I use PB BLAST, which for me has worked great over the years.
Remember, since you are around.gas, NO SMOKING, WATCH FOR SPARKS, AND NO OPEN FLAMES, NO CUTTING TORCHES !
Hope I was able to help you out and the way I.explained the steps were good, if need more info, let.me.know.
This is an easy job, just a pain due to the rust and jacking the gas tank

SOURCE: fuel filler neck
Clean off the rust
The Check Light doesn't mean the
filler neck is the issue, unless you got
a code for a small Evap Leak & then
it could be any of 10 things & maybe
a bad gas cap
