If it's tyhe 3VZE and a 4x4 ten the fuel pump is in the front setion of the fuel tank the sending unit is in the rear section. remove the negative terminal from the battery. remove the fuel tank skid plate. remove the drain plug from the tank and open the gas cap to allow the fuel to empty in a timely manner. make sure your truck is near empty before doing this. there are six bolts on the skid plate and six bolts on the tank. You can remove the bolts from the tank and lower it enough to work on it without having to remove the filler hose and vent hose. I just did this last week, you will however have to ask the gods to make you skinny for a few moments to fit betwenn the drivers side frame rail and the exhaust pipe to reach the fuel pump bracket assembly. Amazingly, the bolts on the fuel pump bracket come out easy (8mm wrench or socket) the only thing you need to really be careful to not break the hard line conected to the bracket. The return line is rubber but the preesure side is like tin. I broke mine and had to get a new one. If youre like I am this is the first and only time you will be replacing the fuel pump. I got my '92 new and shes still going. Do the reverse to put it back together. except when you put the tank bolts back in just tighten enough to put fuel in so you can replace the negative terminal, to ignition to on so the fuel pump will pressurize the line, start tghe engine (Parking brake firmly applied) and check for leaks. Then tighten her up. Good luck.

rip off, do not go back there.... The fuel pump is most likely inside of the fuel tank and then they would need to empty it and take off of your car, but not for a $100 part..... get more opinions!

Hey i have a cadillac sedan deville 1992 where is the fuel pump located

The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. On these GM cars, the fuel tank must be dropped in order to change the pump. It is alos recomended that the fuel filter be changed at the same time which is on the frame of the vehicle, left side. the pump at autozone runs about $75 and don't forget the strainer for about $10. The filter runs about$10 also.

The fuel pump is located on top and inside the fuel tank. Unless there is an access panel inside the vehicle above the fuel pump location you will have to remove the fuel tank in order to gain access to the pump. Remove as much fuel as possible from the fuel tank before trying to remove it. A small inexpensive hand pump is the best way.

Car wont start

If when you turn the key on, you do not hear the fuel pump, it may require replacement. The pump is located in your gas tank, accessible from the top of the tank... you'll have to lower the tank for this job.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Im trying to find fuel pump is it locate on side of tank or inside tank

It's inside the Tank , You can get to it from the top so no need to take the tank out.
Before you change the fuel pump take some wire from the earth terminal of the fuel pump and earth it to the body.
I have seen alot of these pumps start working if this is done.
