Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
You've got to be very careful when placing the fuel tank unit back into the tank. If it is indexed(a small tab or pin) make sure your unit is lined up with it. Also as you're going in take great caution not to bend or deform the float arm in any fashion. Many times using the new ring gasket can cause a big headache. If your existing gasket is in good condition put a little vaseline around the perimeter of it and some on the locking ring if it has one. Otherwise just gently keep fisshing around until the unit clears the iner splash guard and make absolute certain the you have the unit in precisely the same (clock) position as when it was removed. It has to sit easily into the circle easily before you place the ring or screws back in. Good luck.Dana

I hate to differ but the tank does not need to be dropped. There is an oval access panel inside the trunk, under the carpet and pad past the spare tire closer to the back seat. Pull back the carpet and remove the screws holding the access panel. The sending unit module is under that panel with two electrical plugs that need to be disconnected. Remove the screws that hold the module and CAREFULLY lift out the module. There is a fine, wire filament that is likely not making connection to the resistor board on the bottom of the module. If tweaking the connection doesn't cure the problem, then you will need to replace the module (which includes the pump assy.). Unfourtunately, this is a fairly expensive part.

De-pressurize the Camry's fuel system. With the gas cap open (to release pressure in that location), open the fuse/relay panel under the hood and remove the relay labeled "C/OPN." Start the engine and let it run until it stops. Disconnect the battery's negative cable.
Detach the rear seat from the car. Lift up the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, disconnect the mounting bolt underneath and remove the cushion. Pull up the seat back locks, flip the seat backs down and remove the mounting bolts.
Remove the service hole cover from the floor under the seat concealing the fuel pump/sending unit.
Disconnect the fuel line and electrical connectors from the fuel pump unit. Remove the retaining bolts and withdraw the unit carefully out of the fuel tank.
Release the clips on the fuel pump assembly's plastic support with a screwdriver to remove the support. Then pull off the rubber isolator, remove the fuel sock filter and disconnect the electrical connector from the top of the assembly. You can now withdraw the fuel pump from the housing.
Connect the new fuel pump into place on the assembly housing. Reassemble the fuel pump/sending unit in order, from the electrical connector to the fuel sock filter, rubber isolator and bottom plastic support.
Place the pump unit back within the fuel tank and reattach the bolts. Reconnect the electrical connectors and the fuel line. Reattach the rear seats.
Replace the "C/OPN" relay, reconnect the negative battery cable and fill the fuel tank if it is empty.
Pressurize the Camry's fuel system by turning the ignition on for a couple of seconds. Then turn it off for ten and repeat this five to ten times.
