Replacing fuel filter for 1999 chevrolet tracker


Passenger side, undeneath, next to fuel tank.
Your 2002 Chevy Tracker (2wheel drive and 4wheel drive are the same) with the 2.5L V-6 has an inline fuel filter located on the passenger(right hand) side of the vehicle. Just behind the wheel well on the underside of the vehicle next to the fuel tank is where you'll find it. If you've never changed a fuel filter on a fuel injected vehicle, watch out for the quick connect fittings as you could damage the flexible plastic fuel line. Most auto parts stored sell tools to disconnect the fittings, but I have better luck with fingers, pliers and maybe a small flat bladed screw driver. Also, you'll need to de-pressurize the system before removing the old one or fuel could spray out when disconnected.

FUEL TANK REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Except With Shield Package

  1. Properly drain the fuel tank, then disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If not done already, raise and support the rear of the truck safely using jackstands.
  3. If equipped on late-model vehicles, loosen and remove the tank plastic shield.
  4. Loosen the retaining clamp and disconnect the tank filler hose from the tank neck.

If fuel and vapor hoses or pump/sending unit wiring can be accessed at this time, they may be tagged and disconnected. If not, wait for the retaining straps to be loosened and lower the tank slightly for access.
  1. Tag and disconnect and accessible wiring or hoses from the top of the fuel tank.
  2. Have and assistant support the fuel tank, then remove the fuel tank-to-vehicle straps and, if equipped, the isolation strips. If no assistant is available, position a floor jack to support the tank while the straps are removed.
  3. Lower the tank slightly, then remove the sending unit or sending unit/pump wires, hoses and ground strap. Be sure to label all connections to ease installation.
  4. Carefully lower the fuel tank from the vehicle and store in a safe place.


Equipped With Shield Package
  1. Properly drain the fuel tank, then disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the rear of the truck safely using jackstands.
  3. Remove the shield forward support and bracket.
  4. While supporting the shield and tank assembly with the help of both an assistant and a floor jack, remove the remaining bolts holding the assembly to the frame, then lower it sufficiently for access to the hoses and wires.
  5. Tag and disengage the hoses and wires from the sending unit assembly.
  6. Carefully lower the fuel tank and shield from the vehicle, then if necessary for service or replacement, separate the tank from the shield.


FUEL PUMP REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 5, 6 and 7

  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable.

Be sure to keep a Class B (dry chemical) fire extinguisher nearby.


CAUTION Due to the possibility of fire or explosion, never drain or store gasoline in an open container.

  1. Drain the fuel tank, then remove it from the vehicle. Refer to the procedure found later in this section for details.
  2. Using the GM fuel gauge sending unit retaining cam tool No. J-24187, J-36608 (or equivalent) or a brass drift and a hammer, remove the cam locking ring (fuel sending unit) by twisting counterclockwise. With the locking ring released, carefully lift the sending unit from the fuel tank.
  3. Remove the fuel pump from the fuel sending unit, by performing the following procedures:
    1. Pull the fuel pump up into the mounting tube, while pulling outward (away) from the bottom support.


When removing the fuel pump from the sending unit, be careful not to damage the rubber insulator and the strainer.
    1. When the pump assembly is clear of the bottom support, pull it out of the rubber connector.


To install:
  1. Inspect the fuel pump hose and bottom sound insulator for signs of deterioration, then replace, as necessary.
  2. Push the fuel pump onto the sending tube.
  3. Using a new sending unit-to-fuel tank O-ring, carefully lower the sending unit/fuel pump assembly into the fuel tank.

When installing the sending unit, be careful not to fold or twist the fuel strainer or it may restrict the fuel flow.
  1. Secure the sending unit by turning or driving the lockring clockwise and into position under the tabs.
  2. Install the fuel tank assembly to the vehicle.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable and check for proper pump operation.

No fuel ,is there a fuelpump relay, or something i can test before going for the pump,1999 chev tracker


There should be a relay. It only turns the fuel on for 2-3 seconds until the car is running. Then it stays on. If the relay is turning on and off then you can try to check power back by the tank if there is a connector in the harness. If there is no connector then the tank will have to come down.
