Check the switch, if not it may need a fuel regulator valve.

How do drop the fuel tank to replace the fuel pump on a 2001 chev silverado 1500?


some times it is easier to remove the bed.

jack up truck

unhook the fuel inlet hose and vent

reach threw fender and unhook fuel lines from top of tank and wiring plug

remove bolts from fuel tank straps ( the ones closest to drive shaft )

lower tank

sounds easy but is is harder then it sounds expecly if the tank is full of gas.

get a few friends over and pull the bed.

I have a 2001 chevy silverado 1500 with a 4800 vortec engine. it starts and idels fine but when ever i give it gas, the engine starts to sputter and dies. ive already changed the fuel filter and spark plug...


This sounds llike weak feul pressure, the fuelpump may need replacing, the first thing to do is have the fuel pressure tested and if the pressure is low then have the pump replaced. the pump is located inside the fuel tank and the tank will need to be dropped to replace the pump, good luck ,

Hi I have a 4x4 2003 chevy 3500 silverado dually with dual tanks
rear tank stoped pumping into front tank and was full . I siphoned the fuel out of rear tank and fuel gauge reads 9/16 full . is there a way to reset the fuel sending units so they can calculate the fuel readings. I always filled the two tanks with the same amount of fuel
until now ? I'm thinking there is a inkine fuel pump

04 chev. 1500 fuel tank will not take gas, gas


Evap vent solenoide is stuck closed. Start by replacing the valve and checking the hose to the valve for clogs...this is located between the cab of the truck and the bed of the truck on the driver side (can be seen if you look down through the crack)....If this doesn't work then check the fuel filler neck hose for kink or restriction this is the hose that goes from the gas cap to the fuel tank.

as long as the fuel pump is running you must have a restriction in a fuel line.
