In order to replace the fuel pump on this vehicle you have to disconnect the battery, jack up the rear of the vehicle and support on stands. Support the fuel tank with a jack and board in order not to puncture it, loosen the fuel tank straps and lower the tank down enough to undo the fuel lines and plug in from the sending unit once removed lower tank down the rest of the way and change the pump. Put the vehicle back together in reverse order.

Does a 2000 Oldsmobile silhouette have a fuel reset switch


It does. Did you hit some one? I have never replaced one. Most likely a bad pump.

My husband turned off our 2000 silhouette at a school to get out and when he came back it wont start it tries to but just wont we changed the fuel filter and the fuel pump relay and i really dont want to...


If you dont know what the fuel pressure is, dont guess. Buy a $20 fuel pressure gauge and hook it to the fuel injector rail and see what fuel pressure you have 35-40 psi. Do you hear the fuel pump run? it should run for 2 seconds when you turn the key on. Do this first,Sometimes....... you can get to pump to run a while longer if you rap on th tank while someone is cranking, that may get it to run long enough to get to a repair shop.

My olds silhouette, (2000) has 100,000 miles and seems to loose power when traveling uphill after it has heated up after 70 or 80 miles travel. Could it be the fuel filter or a weak fuel pump?


You could very well have a pump that is weak and loses some of it's pumping power after it has gotten fully warmed up. Have you ever noticed a temporary improvement in power after refiling with cool fuel? A test drive with a fuel pressure gauge should tell the tale about pump condition. Usually a restricted filter will cause a starvation problem all the time instead of just after a long drive. It certainly wouldn't hurt to change the filter but I doubt that it is your problem.

97 Silhouette Fuel guage not working correctly


drop fuel tank. if guage moves all around its probably the fuel level sensor on fuel pump assembly in the fuel tank. If the guage stay's in one spot its the guage , replace instrument cluster assembly. you can take just the glass off the cluster and move the fuel guage needle and it will work (if stuck) but for how long? The wires to the guage come from the sending unit to the power train control module to the instrument cluster. pray its not in the wiring.
