Replacing fuel pump


To replace the fuel pump you must remove the fuel tank form the car. You will need a floor jack and jack stands and then remove the steel straps that hold the tank in place and then the filler neck and drop down tank to access the fuel lines, disconnect the lines with the special tool kit and slowly drop the tank out.

2003 5.3L Chevy Tahoe. The fuel pump needs replaced


The connectors tend to get dirt and debris in where the special tool slides in which prevents the little tabs from disengaging from the raised ring on the plastic pipe. Pull the line towards the pump as if you were trying to push it on even further and use compressed air to blow out any crud where the tool goes. Then insert the tool and push it in firmly while pulling the line toward the tool a bit to relieve the pressure on the little internal metal retaining clips and at that point with a little wiggling the line should come off. I've taken off dozens and they can be exasperating to say the least. IF all else fails and you are certain that you are going to replace the pump module and absolutely can not get the lines disconnected for the stubby plastic fittings on top of the old one then you could simply break off the plastic fittings on the old pump so you can work on getting the fittings disconnected once you have the tank out. I've had to do this a couple of times but it means that the old pump module can't be used again since the fittings would be broken off of it. Be extremely careful working around the tank as it will be full of gasoline fumes and extremely flammable!

Fuel pump


There are two metal straps that hold the tank in the vehicle. First you will need to disconnect the filler neck from the tank and any other black vent hoses that will pose a problem. Place a floor jack under the fuel tank and remove 2 bolts (1 in each strap). Then carefully lower the tank. You will need a special tool for the actual fuel lines where they are connected to the pump. It is called a quick disconnect tool. Once the tank is free of the vehicle you will see the pump housing on top. Most likely has about 8-8mm bolts that will need removed-and there is your fuel pump.. Labor guide calls for 2hrs -normally takes about 45mins to complete..

Removal of fuel lines from fuel pump assembly


There is special disconnect tool just for 98-00 classic CK pickups. Lisle makes them they are a two piece plastic tool that is pretty cheap to buy. Do not buy a regular disconnect tool bcause they will not fit in the lines at the pump. The lisle number at Carquest is 37500. Please rate.
