The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. You must drop the tank to service it. You have options when you repair it. You can replace just the motor (cheaper) or you can replace the entire harness including the motor (expensve but easier).
It is difficult to determine which componant of the fuel process is bad. There are fuel fuses both in the fuse relay and in other areas such as under the hood. I don't know exactly where on the Monte Carlo.
The fuel pump powers up before you start the engine. To hear the fuel pump without the vehicle on, have someone "almost" start the car while you are underneath listening. Just before you start the car, the pump will turn on for about 3 seconds to pressure up before the car starts. Then it will shut off if you do not start it.
It should not be too difficult to drop the tank. Dissconnect the (-) batterey terminal. There should be some bands that clamp together with a long bolt that hold the tank up. Make sure you open the gas fill and disconnect it because that will also hold it up and keep it from dropping. There should also be a ground wire nearby that will need to be dissconnected. There will be several little clamps that hold the fuel lines connected to the frame that will need to be undone so as to create slack in order to drop the fuel tank.
If you have never done it before, you may need someone to show you how to remove the pump. There are rings with little tabs that need to be spun counter-clockwise. They might be covered in oil and dirt and difficult to see. Clean this area as much as you can. You do not want debris to fall in your tank when you remove the pump. Spinning the rings can be difficult. I use a screwdriver and a hammer and gently tap in the correct direction, alternating to a different tab every few taps so as not to shear off the tabs. Then replace with the correct part. Lifting the tank and getting the bands back in place is difficult but can be done.

2001 crystler town & country fuel pump


The Fuel pump is in the tank. The only thing I disagree with in emissionwiz post is whether to drain the tank or not. Chrysler started putting drains on the tanks in 2000 to make this easier when they went to a plastic fuel tank. I would drain the tank from the drain, disconnect the wiring then drop the tank to replace the pump. This all assumes that you verified that the fuse in the interior panel is not blown and the fuel pump relay in the power distribution box under the hood is still good.

Remove and replace fuelpump of a 1995 lincoln towncar


Hello fremx. I will tell you step by step how to do this. Before I do, I must also tell you that this is a complex task because the fuel pump and the sending unit are attached together on the assembly that is submerged in the tank. There fore, this task involves jacking up the car and dropping the fuel tank after you empty it. Read the link I am providing thoroughly then decide if this is a job that you have the skill and tools to handle or if it is a job for a pro.

How to change fuel pump?


safely raise and support the back of the vehicle. The fuel pump will be on the passenger side of the fuel tank.

remove the fuel lines from the pump. Be careful as any residual pressure in the lines will spray out and get you. Wrap a rag around the connector before you remove it to reduce the spray.

Unbolt the passenger side fuel tank strap. You will need to do this to remove the wiring harness to the pump.

Remove the 6 bolts holding the pump to the fuel tank. An 8mm socket should work. If the tank is full gas will start coming out at this point. Have a drain pan ready to catch it.

Pull the pump out of the tank. This can be a bit of a rubix cube but the pump will come out without having to pull or drop the tank.

Please be careful! anytime there is fuel vapor or spilt fuel there is the chance for fire.

Use new clips in the fuel line fittings. There should be one black clip and one white clip. They only go into the fitting with the tab facing the line. If you put them in backwards the lines will pull off.

Sometimes they use a quick connect fitting that a release tool needs to be used to get the fittings off of the fuel pump. They can be purchased at any good auto parts store. There are two sizes and most parts stores will carry the tool that has both sizes in one tool.

Make sure you replace the fuel filter when replacing the pump.

Does a 2007 town and country have a seperate fuel filter, or is it located inside the tank with the pump?


the fuel filter is located inside the tank it is part of the fuel pump assembly.Some have two filters you can replace one without replacing the whole unit It is located at the bottom of the pump. Did you check you see if there is a warranty or recall? You have to drop the fuel trank to replace the filter or the pump. You need to take the fuel pressure to make sure you have a fuel problem.
