Drain the gas tank. I didn't have a lift so I used a floor jack under neath the gas tank. I used a piece of plywood on top of floor jack that would fit between tank straps. Take the fill tube loose, take fuel lines and electrical connectors loose. Take tank straps loose,you may have to drop tank a little to reach some connections. If I remember correctly the fuel pump is in the middle of tank. I don't know if you would want to cut hole in floor of surburban to reach pump? I don't have any info about cutting that hole, if you try that, that is your responsibility.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2004 checy surburban k1500 4x4


Damn the bad luck, it's inside the fuel tank! Sorry, but I hope this helped you with the looking for it...

This vehicle has a lifetime fuel filter built into the fuel sender inside the tank and thus is not serviceable separately. The fuel filter is not a replaceable part.

No fuel guage readings,cant use front fuel tank vehicle stalls out,fuel coming out of front fuel tank cap when running,1988 ford e150


im thinking that this has dual tanks and one of the selonoids that switch the tanks have failed, Its the fuel coming out the cap that is tough. does it flow out the cap like its over full or is it just a couple splash drops like rain drop? does the other fuel tank read the same fill level while this is happening?? Cause the only way the front fuel tank can get full is if the fuel is being pumped into it by means of the fuel in the other tank. Now im not sure if they run return lines on that but if they did and the return line is near the cap i could understand the couple splash drops. Vehicle stalls on the front tank because the selonoid that opens and closes allowing fuel to be picked up to the motor is bad or the electrical switch or wiring is bad. selonoids are located under van close to the front of tank.

Can I change the fuel pump and relay on my 1988 Volvo wagon 740 myself or do I have to have a mechanic do it?


dropping fuel tank is not that hard, drive up on ramps for clearance and unbolt straps, be careful not to break fuel line when lowering tank, good luck

Fuel pump location 1988 ford econoline


Theres 2 pumps one in the tank, lift pump, and one in the chassis rail under the driver side. The one in the tank is cheap, the one in the rail is not. The one in the tank only produces low pressure to prime the main pump and if it is broken, may not cause that much of an issue except when starting. the one in the rail is a no-start if it fails. The idea is that the rail pump can supply high pressure for the injectors, so a fuel pressure test at the injector rail will determine which pump is playing up. Hope that helps Tim

1988 5.7 TBI Nightmare This is the start of what the problem was and is, I had a RV cam installed when the engine was rebuilt a year ago. the cam was not a computer friendly cam so after a round with the rebuilder and discovering the specs weren't the correct ones for the cam I installed a 3702 edelbrock cam and lifters with a 7800 timing chain and gear set after I had tried two chips from Jet and no improved performance and the 3rd chip was to be for the cam and that is what is in the ECU now and I have tried about 5 different BCC chips and the bottom line is the power is there but something is happening its hit and miss the idle will sometimes lope, is stalled when first started and acts as if its starving for fuel or its bogged with to much fuel. the fuel pressure is 10 - 13 psi and I have R/R the TPS, IAC, ESC and knocks device , EGR and Solenoid, MAP, Temp sensor, and the Dist is a Procomp 10001 with a MSD-5526 coil. the Throttle Body was rebuild and the ECM was replaced with a Rebuilt ECM. it will smell rich etc. but with the things that goes on it does not show any codes?? I have no clue just feel stupid this is been a simple thing that is kicking my **** and now its a challenge but still loosing the fight too far in and too much spent to stop,. LOL Help !!!! The BCC is a california vehicle AFBX, 5.7TBI TH400 A/T P.S. the key can be turned of and back on as the engine not dying and seems to correct the power and run problems but will not last goes back to running bad or with problems. ?
