Replacing fuel pump on 2003 Suzuki Aerio 2.0L 4 Cyl. DOHC


If you are able to drop the fuel tank without disconnecting any other components (brake lines, suspension and exhaust), and remove the fuel pump, the answer is yes.

Best to drain the fuel from tank to make it lighter when dropping down enough to clear the pump.

Access to fuel pump on 1997 lumina


In a 97 lumina sedan, you have to drop the fuel tank. this is tricky in that the wiring harness and fuel lines have to be disconnected before removal. the lines can be tough because the fuel filter has a compression fitting on one end and a quick disconnect fitting on the other end. The compression fitting may be rusted solid and you can't use a torch on it. ok.. the how to. First try to empty the tank. second, using jack stands and blocking the front wheels, get the car up as high as you possibly can. Disconnect the fuel filler tube from the tank. loosen (do not yet remove) the tank straps and get some room to see the top of the tank. carefully disconnect the wiring harness from the pump/sensor unit. disconnect the fuel pressure and return lines. check your clearances and make sure you have it all disconnected. carefully position a floor jack under the tank. support the tank gently. remove the tank straps, drop the tank and bring it out you will see the pump assy and a ring that has tangs on it on the top of the tank. using a hammer and (preferrably) a brass drift push the ring to the left (counter clockwise) and as it loosens just unscrew it and pull out the pump. remember that the pump and the sending unit are an assembly. treat it gently if you plan on saving it! while you're there, be sure to replace that fuel filter!!! put it back in the way you got it out good luck! Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

How to replace fuel pump on chevy malibu 2000


First you should check your trunk. some newer chevy's have an access pannel uner the trunk liner inside the trunk. you remove the liner, remove the bolts and panel, and the pump is right there. it may take some effort to get it wiggled through, but trust me, it will fit. you must remove the fuel lines and wire harness first, then remove the lock ring completely before attempting to pull the pump through the access hole. if that fails then you need to drop you fuel tank to access the pump. there are instructions for removal and installation of the tank below.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the fuel tank, using a hand-operated pump device to drain as much fuel through the filler tube as possible.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Unfasten the muffler hanger bolts.
  3. Remove the rubber exhaust hangers, then allow the exhaust system to rest on the rear axle.
  4. Disconnect the hoses from the fuel tank sender. Grasp the filter and one nylon fuel connection line fitting. Twist the quick-connect fitting 1 / 4 turn in each direction to loosen any dirt within the fitting. Repeat for the other fitting. Using compressed air, blow out the dirt from the quick-connect fittings at the end of the fuel filter.
  5. Detach the quick-connect fittings by pulling the release tabs back on the fuel line quick connector and pulling apart.
  6. Disconnect the hoses at the tank from the filler, vent and vapor pipes.
  7. With the help of an assistant, support the fuel tank, then disconnect the two tank retaining straps and carefully lower the tank.
  8. Detach the fuel sender electrical connector.
  9. Unplug the fuel pressure sensor connector.
  10. Remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. If the tank is being replaced, perform the following:
    1. Remove the sound insulators.
    2. Remove the modular fuel pump/sender assembly, as outlined earlier in this section.
    3. Inspect all connectors for dirt and burrs. Clean or replace, as required. Inspect the fuel line O-rings for cuts, nicks, swelling and/or distortion and replace as necessary.
    4. Install the fuel sender assembly to the new tank, as outlined earlier in this section.
    5. Install the sound insulators.

  2. With the help of an assistant, raise the fuel tank to the vehicle and attach the fuel sender connector and, if equipped, the fuel pressure sensor connector.
  3. Raise the fuel tank into position then fasten the retaining straps. Tighten the retaining bolts to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm).
  4. Connect the hoses to the filler, vent and vapor pipes.
  5. Attach the nylon fuel feed and return connecting line quick-connect fittings to the fuel sender, as follows:
    1. Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male connector tube ends.
    2. Push the connectors together to cause the retaining tabs/fingers to snap into place.
    3. Once installed, pull on both ends of each connection to be sure they are secure.

  6. Install the rubber exhaust hangers.
  7. Install the muffler hanger bolts, then tighten to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm).
  8. Attach the fuel tank sender electrical connector.
  9. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  10. Refill the fuel tank, then connect the negative battery cable.
  11. Turn the ignition to the ON position for two seconds, then turn it to the OFF position for ten seconds. Turn again to the ON position and check for fuel leaks.

Inside the tank fuel pump


You can not get to the fuel pump from inside the car. I have a 91 you have to drop the tank. BUT if you just have to. you can cut a 8in by 11in access panel in the center of the hump above the tank. You will need to use a non spark cutting tool like a air hammer. You will need 3 brass fittings 5/16 in I believe. (This is just an idea if you have to do it this way). I am not giving you this as advise. Just you could do this if you want to. Cut the hole so you can access the fuel pump from inside. You will have to cut the fuel lines one at the time. cut them in different locations from each other so the fittings will not interfere with each other. (room to fit and tighten these fittings) The fittings you will need are called compression. They are brass have small rings that fit over the line and compress to seal it. Once you cut your hole cut your lines remove the pump lines all as one part it takes a little finesse to get all out. Make a good fitting cover for your access hole and thats that. Clear as mud? this is just a (you could do it this way) but its not the right way. Drop that tank out the bottom take your rear end loose from the shocks, pull your exhaust hangers loose and let the muffler hang take the tank band loose get as much fuel out as you can. Jack the rear of the car up 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 feet to get the room needed to get the tank out. It is a tight tight fit be sure the car is secure because you will be pulling and jerking pulling and jerking to get the tank out. Work slow and careful.

A 1996 Bronco fuel pump is in the tank. The tank will have to be dropped. After that, it's quick & easy. The filter is on the rail, not so easy even with the line removal tools. Wear safety glasses in case of any pressure.
