My gas gauge dosent work how can I fix it


You will need to remove the gas tank and replace the fuel level sensor inside the fuel tank.
The level sensor is part of the electric fuel pump "module" Here is how to change that part.
  • 1. Start the van's engine. Open the fuel cap and remove the fuel pump relay from the engine's fuse box. Look for the engine to stall, signaling that the fuel pressure is gone.
  • 2Disconnect the van's negative battery cable.
  • 3. Unbolt the fuel tank's straps and lower the tank just enough to access the fuel pump flange. You can have a second person lower the tank, but it might be easier to use a floor jack with a wood block.
  • 4Remove the small locking pin on the pump's electrical connector with needle-nose pliers, and disconnect the electrical connector. Press the retainer tabs on the fuel lines and disconnect them from the pump.
  • 5Unscrew the pump's locking ring with a strap wrench or a similar hand-made tool that can grip the large ring and turn it.
  • 6Pull the water pump out of the tank, then remove and discard the O-ring from the fuel tank.
  • 7Pry back the locking tabs connecting the inlet filter to the pump reservoir using a thin screwdriver and remove the filter. This is only needed if this filter is in good condition and you must transfer it to the new pump.
Installation
  • 8Lubricate the O-ring for the filter with engine oil and connect it to the outlet of the filter. Push the filter onto the pump reservoir's inlet and make sure the locking tabs engage.
  • 9Install a new O-ring onto the seating hole on the fuel tank.
  • 10Insert the pump module into the tank, tilting it at an angle and making sure you don't damage the filter or the pump float. Make sure the module is properly seated.
  • 11Screw the retaining ring into position on the pump module.
  • 12Reconnect the fuel lines to the pump using their quick-connect fittings and the electrical connector with its locking pin.
  • 13Connect the tank back to the van using its straps and strap bolts.
  • 14Reconnect the fuel pump relay and negative battery cable

Where is the fuel filter located?


The fuel filter is located by the fuel tank. it is located near the fuel tank and requires you to unbolt it. The Fuel pump in an Oldsmobile Silhouette is located in a plastic cylindrical module that also houses the fuel level sending unit. The module is located within the fuel tank and locked into place with the use of a lock ring. The lock ring has tabs that interlock with tabs on the fuel tank. There are a series of hoses and electrical connections on the top of the tank that you'll need to remove as the tank is lowered. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How to remove fuel filter


The mechanic should check first the place where the fuel filters are been placed then there are two connections of fuel lines . The connection of the fuel lines to the gas tank or fuel tank, the connection of the fuel lines to the engine.There are two lock ring that holds the hose and the fuel filter tube to connected to each other. You have to set loose the lock ring ,because its been tighten so that no fuel will spill .Set loose the lock ring and then change the fuel filters .But before you do it make sure that the fuel from the fuel tank will be block or will not spill before changing the filters . Since there are two fuel filters you have to do it twice . the two fuel filters are the primary filter and the secondary filter.

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.
