      you should be able to tilt the unit sideways to get the float in and once it is in you should be able toturn it if needed to position it in the correct spot.

      what you replaced, was it the complete assembly? and it is spring loaded assembly? if so you may need to apply pressure to get it in and it should go in. if it is complete assembly have you made sure it is exactly the same?

    Replace fuel pump 1993 olsmoble cutlas ciera 3.3

    There is no easy way around this, you must drop the fuel tank to change out the fuel pump on this vehicle.A floor jack will make your life much easier to aid you in removal of the fuel tank after the rear of the vehicle is supported in the air.I hope I could help!!!! Thanks!!!

    I ran out of gas and i put more in and now it wont stat i tried turning the car half way over so the fuel could get throw but nothing and all i am doing is killing the battery

    when u ran out of fuel the fuel pump may have sucked up some debri in the bottom of the tank,sometimes you can tap on the flat part of the fuel tank and it may run long enough to let you know the fuel pump is faulty and it will have to be replaced
