You never state which engine and that is a KEY FACT. for parts
4L or 2.5L>?
so you have no FSM , no factory service manual.. it covers all that.
the parts can be seen on the jeep page.

http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

my guess is you have the XJ type tanks?

XJ below (hit it CCW) bam off.

25289487-dxcrgkivymo2usvas4x3llk1-5-1.jpg

ok the pump is out.?
so the question is how to dismantle the pump?
the pump fits to a rack, , and is not something that dismantles.
not the steel parts, or plate or metal tubes its something you buy
here is the page at jeep showing this fact clearly
ill show the rack then the jeep dealer blowup for parts next

there it is.
now the offical, parts pages

shows a newer pump from 93 to 98

you should have posted a photo. many old cars run
older tanks, or newer. (hacked)
so real photos work best. in all cases.
a photo with finger pointing to part you want off, best of best.

SOURCE: 1999 jeep cherokee do you have to remove the fuel pump to replace

The combination Fuel Filter/Fuel Pressure Regulator is located on the fuel pump module. The fuel pump module is located on top of fuel tank.

The filter/regulator may be removed without removing fuel pump module although fuel tank must be removed.

REMOVAL

  1. Remove fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
  2. Clean area around filter/regulator.
  3. Disconnect fuel line at filter/regulator. Refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
  4. Remove retainer clamp from top of filter/regulator. Clamp snaps to tabs on pump module. Discard old clamp.
  5. Pry filter/regulator from top of pump module with 2 screwdrivers. Unit is snapped into module
  6. Discard gasket below filter/regulator.
    1. Before discarding filter/regulator assembly, inspect assembly to verify that O-rings are intact. If the smallest of the two O-rings can not be found on bottom of filter/regulator, it may be necessary to remove it from the fuel inlet passage in fuel pump module.
    INSTALLATION
    1. Clean recessed area in pump module where filter/regulator is to be installed.
    2. Obtain new filter/regulator (two new O-rings should already be installed)
    3. Apply a small amount of clean engine oil to O-rings. Do not install O-rings separately into fuel pump module. They will be damaged when installing filter/regulator.
    4. Install new gasket to top of fuel pump module.
    5. Press new filter/regulator into top of pump module until it snaps into position (a positive click must be heard or felt).
    6. The arrow molded into top of fuel pump module should be pointed towards front of vehicle (12 O'clock position).
    7. Rotate filter/regulator until fuel supply tube (fitting) is pointed towards front of vehicle (12 O'clock position).
    8. Install new retainer clamp (clamp snaps over top of filter/regulator and locks to flanges on pump module).
    9. Connect fuel line at filter/regulator. Refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
    10. Install fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
WARNING: THE FUEL SYSTEM IS UNDER CONSTANT FUEL PRESSURE EVEN WITH THE ENGINE OFF. THIS PRESSURE MUST BE RELEASED BEFORE SERVICING FUEL TANK .

Two different procedures may be used to drain fuel tank (lowering tank or using DRB scan tool).

The quickest draining procedure involves lowering the fuel tank.

As an alternative procedure, the electric fuel pump may be activated allowing tank to be drained at fuel rail connection. Refer to DRB scan tool for fuel pump activation procedures. Before disconnecting fuel line at fuel rail, release fuel pressure. Refer to the Fuel System Pressure Release Procedure for procedures. Attach end of special test hose tool number 6541, 6539, 6631 or 6923 at fuel rail disconnection (tool number will depend on model and/or engine application). Position opposite end of this hose tool to an approved gasoline draining station. Activate fuel pump and drain tank until empty.

If electric fuel pump is not operating, tank must be lowered for fuel draining. Refer to following procedures.

FUEL TANK REMOVAL
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.
  2. Release fuel system pressure. Refer to the Fuel System Pressure Release.
  3. Raise and support vehicle.
  4. If Equipped: Remove fuel tank skid plate.
  5. Remove 4 fuel hose shield mounting bolts and remove fuel hose shield from body.
    1. Remove fuel tank fill hose and vent hose clamps at fuel tank filler tube. Remove both hoses at fuel filler tube.
    2. Remove exhaust tailpipe heat shield mounting bolts and remove shield. CAUTION: To protect fuel tank from exhaust heat, this shield must reinstalled after tank installation.
    3. Place a hydraulic jack to bottom of fuel tank. WARNING: PLACE A SHOP TOWEL AROUND FUEL LINES TO CATCH ANY EXCESS FUEL .
      1. Disconnect fuel supply line from fuel extension line near front of fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tubes/Lines/Hoses and Clamps. Also refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
      2. Disconnect EVAP canister vent line near front of tank.
      3. Disconnect fuel pump module electrical connector (pigtail harness) near front of tank. Harness connector is clipped to body.
        1. Remove two fuel tank strap nuts. Position both tank support straps away from tank.
        2. Carefully lower right side of tank while feeding both fuel hoses through access hole in body. Fuel Tank Full And Not Drained Using DRB Scan Tool: To prevent fuel loss through hoses, keep left side of tank higher than right side while lowering. Do not allow hose openings to drop lower than top of tank.
        3. Continue lowering tank until clear of vehicle. Place tank on floor with left side (hose side) higher than right side
          1. Drain tank by removing fuel fill hose at tank. Fuel fill hose is largest of 2 hoses. Insert the drain hose (from an approved gasoline draining station) into hose opening. Drain tank until empty.
          2. If fuel pump module removal is necessary, refer to Fuel Pump Module Removal/installation for procedures.
          INSTALLATION
          1. If fuel pump module is being installed, refer to Fuel Pump Module Removal/installation for procedures.
          2. Install fuel fill/vent hoses to tank fittings. To prevent hose from kinking, rotate each hose until index mark on hose is aligned to index tang on fuel tank.
          3. Install hose clamps to hoses. Position clamps between index marks on each hose.
          4. Position fuel tank to hydraulic jack.
          5. Raise tank into position while guiding fuel fill and vent hoses into and through access hole in body.
          6. Continue raising tank until positioned to body.

SOURCE: Jeep 1992 yJ Outside Door Handle

ok, the inside panel is cardboard with faux leather. remove the screws holding on the inside handle and the frame of the doorlatch.

there is a plastic joint that connects the two rods that actuate and open the door. the rods are bent at the end to slip into the white plastic joint. this design is stupid and often times that joint can break, or the rods fall out. solution is to reattach them together and wrap mechanics wire or bend the very ends of the rods so they wont come out.

its something i cant really explain, but the design is straight forward. also, keep track of the threads on the rod that connects to the claw that meets the striker on the frame of the jeep. if for any reason its not adjusted properly, it will not latch properly.

Where are you seeing the oil leaking from? Remember that gravity will cause the oil to drop down. The wind will also cause the oil to blow back while you drive. Look for the forward most and top most areas that are covered with oil. Common leak areas are the front oil seal (oil will look like it's coming from the bell-housing. Another common leak is the shifter plate gasket, just below the shift lever. Oil will be found draining from this area. I have also seen shoddy mechanics use the wrong bolts to hold the rear housing onto the main housing of the transmission. If the bolts used are to short, oil will leak between the main housing and the tail-shaft housing. Charlie

1989 jeep yj mc2100 carb upgrade, the jeep runs but when i shut it off and look into the carb its dripping fuel down in there, its like it drains what is in the bowl


The fuel should not leak into the venturi.
Chances are the float is set too high or there is dirt in the seat.
The float pushes down on a valve to shut off the flow from the pump much like the float in your toilet.
You could take the top off the carb and check the float level with the carb on the truck. You may need a book to tell you where the level is supposed to be.

1990 jeep yj 4.2 straight 6 carburated will turn over but will not start


First try shooting some starting fluid in intake manifold, and if fires up but still won't keep running, my guess next would be your looking and checking out your fuel pump. You can check that out my removing a line and see if fuel is pumping out of the out put of fuel pump. Because it it carburated its pretty easy to trouble shoot. It's going to be in most cases spark plugs , fuel pump.

How would I replace my fuel Filter


The fuel filter is an integral component of the fuel pressure regulator, which is mounted on top of the fuel pump module, located in the fuel tank. When the fuel filter/regulator assembly requires service, the fuel tank must be removed from the vehicle, however, the fuel pump module does not need to be removed.
  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. You dont have to relieve your fuel systems pressure because your jeep has an automatic bleeder.
  3. Remove the fuel tank assembly.
  4. Clean the area around the fuel filter/regulator.

Fig. Fig. 6: Replace the old fuel filter/pressure regulator mounting gasket

  1. Disengage the retaining clamp from the top of the filter/regulator assembly. Discard the retaining clamp.
  2. Using 2 small prying tools, pry the filter/regulator assembly out from the top of the fuel pump module. The filter/regulator assembly will unsnap from the fuel pump module.
  3. Remove and discard the mounting gasket below the filter/regulator.
  4. Before discarding the fuel filter/pressure regulator assembly, inspect the assembly to verify that the O-rings are intact. If the smallest of the 2 O-rings cannot be found on the bottom of the filter/regulator, it may be necessary to remove it from the fuel inlet passage in the fuel pump module.

Check the fuel for a presence of water. I'm sure there was a recall notice on the gasket on top of the fuel tank where the sending unit mounts. My YJ sat for a year and had water in the tank from this leaking. Drain and drop the tank, replace the gasket, and reinstall.

The ignition has an electronic control unit, (ECU) that has a relay in it that is probably malfunctioning. You can have it tested at a place like Autozone, but if it is intermittant, they may miss the problem. But I would assume it is probably going to get worse.

95 jeep yj wont start


have you checked the fuel pump ? the fuel pump is in the fuel tank and it may be that the fuel guage inside the tank is broken and or not attached to the pump. This is a big job but with a little help from buddys and a bit patients it can be repaired.
