Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
How to start dropping my fuel tank
Begin by spraying all attachment bolts with a good solvent, then remove fill neck at the top. (where you put gas in) Disconnect harness, remove attachment bolts part way, support tank with a jack. disconnect one side and let the tank come down a bit, then disconnect fuel and vent lines etc. Label them so you know where to put them back. (Many have plastic couplers for which parts stores sell a tool to remove them without damage...have that tool on hand before you begin) Remove other fastener and lower tank to the ground. It's best to have the tank nearly empty to begin, but if not, it really isn't too bad coming down. Definitely empty it and clean the insides out before putting it back up though.The pump itself is held in either by a collar that is turned and locks in place or a "c" clip around the perimeter. Make sure that you clean the "o" ring under the mount plate and put it back on re-assembly. Use care when removing and re-installing pump that you do not damage the float arm or you will have a gas gauge problem later.
No smoking within at least fifty feet and no electric power tools or drop lights. Gasoline is relatively safe to work around as long as there are no sparks or open flames anywhere nearby. If they are, it is very dangerous.

yes you have to drop the tank. you will also need a fuel line tool to unhook the fuel lines. before you drop the tank see if tou can reach and wiggle the electrical connection on the top of the tank. these pumps have a pigtail issue. please rate
