It does require some patience truly relax and the use of a floor jack is most helpful and maby even a 2x4 i assure you it does fit ....a tough job when working from the floor i know but please be patient when reinstalling it .. also an empty tank makes it easier take your time and im very sure you ill get it into place it came out from this vehicle correct and you know it was there once .please let me know how it works out for you remember the neck should go up first

Fuel pump replaced 3 times. Now gasoline is pouring out underneath


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. It's possible that the last time it was replaced, one of the fuel line connections was left loose. Have it checked out immediately!

The hose is on the side of the gas cap and it runs down to the bottom of the quarter panel. When I filled the gas tank up, gas comes out of this hose. We just had the fuel pump replaced. Its not leaking...


There are normally two hose lines from the fuel filler that run to the tank. The larger one carries the fuel from the nozzle to the tank. The smaller one is a vent hose that allows vapors to leave the top of the tank while filling. These vapors come back to the nozzle area and can be vented and/or collected by the nozzle depending upon air pollution standards in your area. If your second hose is running to the bottom of the quarter panel, it is probably the vent hose that may not have been reconnected at the top of the tank when the fuel pump was replaced. The fuel running down there is from kickback fuel at the time the pump shuts off. The real problem is that the vent line is open on top of the tank and when the tank is full, that can allow vapors and fuel to escape out of there and it could contact hot exhaust areas - a major fire or explosion hazard. Have this inspected and repaired IMMEDIATELY.

Why does my svt contour gas tank overflow into the parking lot when filling up.


There are two hoses running from the filler neck. Either of them could be leaking from the top. There is also a seal on the top of the tank where the fuel pump is that can leak. If your car leaks the whole time you are putting fuel in, I would suspect the hoses. If it only leaks when you get it full, then check the seal on the top of the tank. The top of the tank can be seen without dropping the tank. Remove your back seat and you will see a cover over the fuel pump. Remove that cover and you can see the top of the tank.

How to replace a 2005 grand am 6 cyclinder fuel pump


You need to drop the fuel tank...pump is inside. remove the screws under the fill neck opening that hold it to the body, disconnect the fuel line connections and harness, remove both straps holding the tank in (support it, if there is fuel inside its very heavy).Remove the fill and vent hose from the tank. Remove the collar that holds the pump in and carefully remove the pump assembly. Carefully replace pump and make sure it goes in without damaging the float arm and points in the same direction the old one did. reverse order...put it back together. It's best to drain tank and clean the inside before putting it back up. NO SMOKING< ELECTRIC TOOLS OR OTHER IGNITION SOURCES WITHIN 75 FEET OF WHERE YOU ARE WORKING!!!

1999 ford contour fuel pump removal


YOU will need the car on a hoist, doing it on the ground is almost impossiable, disconnect the filler neck at top, remove the straps, lower tank slow and disconnect wiring and fuel hoses, you need a special tool to remove the gas line retainer clips.

Fuel Pump 2000 Ford Mustang


remove it from what? You should have dropped the gas tank - it's removed from the tank after it's lowered from the car. Two straps, the filler neck (which is a little tricky - make sure the tank is supported by a jack).
