Only way to completely empty tank is to remove it. there is about a two gallon space between the pump and tank bottom where condensation can build up. You can partially drain it by disconnecting the fuel line and turning the key on. The pump will empty tank (don't run the pump after fuel is mostly empty or it will burn out) Also make sure that hose is secure so that fuel dosen't end up on the ground. After you have finished, put the battery on a charger and bring it back to best charge...Alternator will not and cannot do that.

Fuel pump replacement 2002 mazda miata


The fuel pump is in the fuel tank. You may be able to access the fuel tank by removing your bottom rear seat cushion. If no access there you must remove the fuel tank. If you have to remove the tank and it is mostly full you should siphon out as much fuel as you can into appropriate containers.

In my opinion it is caused by having too little gas in the tank. You are not suppose to run it it with that little gas anyways because it is bad for your car since all the contaminants can be sucked into the injectors and cause all kinds of problem.

Does your car kind of sputter? Rpm's jump and when you try to accelerate the car bogs until the end result is a stall? If so most people assume its the fuel filter and some belive its electrical, but from a sim ilar experience I found out that replacing the cam position sensor was the solution to my problem. Nothing bad has happened since. Hope this helps you pout.

2002 mazda miata mx5 has strong gasoline smell in trunk. Had smoke test done at dealership and showed no leaks. Help.


The fill pipe is right back there. Check to see if a hose has been damaged. Check the spout area, is there a overflow pipe or a seam that could be leaking into the trunk?
