They should be diffrent sizes, the bigger one goes to line that also goes to fuel filter which is the feed line (preasure line ) the smaller is the return, which is a metal line all the way to engine, if they are exactly the same size then unhook both have someone quickly turn key on while you watch the line that sparys fuel, that will be the line that the fuel filter is on that the way to check it, good luck.

How to find fuel pump on 97 epedition


Hi Bsok, If the vehicle is petrol powered the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. Remove the cover above the tank and beneath it you will see the sender unit housing. Turn off the ignition and remove the keys from the ignition. Remove the electrical plugs and pipes marking which is which first. Remove the screws holding it in position. Lift it out carefully and the pump should be attached to a bracket on the same unit. Regards Johngee (P.s no smoking)

    Gas leaking from tank


    This sounds like you have a leak at the fuel pump and sender unit, either in the unit mount or in a fuel line. Check under your back seat for an access panel if you have one then remove it and look at the pump and sender mount to see what is leaking, you may have to start the engine to get it to leak as it may only leak under pressure, hope this helps, let me know

    INSTALLATION PROCEDURE (RIGHT)
    CAUTION: In order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury that may result from a fuel leak, always replace the fuel sender gasket
    and the fuel sender attaching bolts when reinstalling the fuel sender assembly.
    1. Install a new fuel sender gasket on the fuel sender.
    2. Fold the long strainer in half over itself and hold the strainer in this position.
    3. Pinch both strainers upward toward each other.
    IMPORTANT: Do not bend or twist the float arm.
    4. Insert the float arm through the fuel tank opening followed by the folded strainers.
    5. Release the strainers once the strainers are in the fuel tank. The strainers will spring back to their full position.
    6. Continue inserting the fuel sender through the fuel tank opening. It may be necessary to rotate the fuel sender in order to facilitate the installation.
    6.1. Look through the fuel tank opening to ensure that the long strainer is visible.
    6.2. If the strainer is not visible, rotate the fuel sender clockwise and counterclockwise about 90 degrees. Rotating the fuel sender will free up
    the strainer. The strainer should become visible at the tank opening.
    7. Align the fuel sender gasket tab (2) with the fuel sender cover mark (1).
    8. Align the fuel sender cover mark (1) with the fuel tank mark.
    NOTE: Refer to the Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
    9. Hand tighten the new "break-away head" fuel sender attaching bolts until finger tight.
    IMPORTANT: The upper hex head portion of the fuel sender attaching bolts is designed to shear off of the lower section of the bolt when the
    proper torque is reached. Do not tighten the bolts after the bolt heads have sheared off. A torque wrench or other special tools are not required. Do
    not use thread locking or other types of sealers or lubricants when installing these bolts and gasket.
    10. Tighten the new "break-away head" fuel sender assembly attaching bolts in sequence until the upper hex head portion of the bolts shear off of the
    lower section.
    11. Connect the fuel sender fuel feed pipe (1) (jet pump to left tank) and the fuel feed rear crossover pipe (2) (left tank to jet pump).
    12. Connect the fuel sender electrical connector.
    13. Install the fuel tank strap (3).
    14. Install the fuel tank strap bolts (1,2,4).
    Tighten
    14.1.Tighten the bolt (2) to 25 N.m (18 lb ft).
    14.2.Tighten the bolt (1) to 25 N.m (18 lb ft).
    14.3.Tighten the remaining bolts (4) to 25 N.m (18 lb ft).
    15. Install the fuel tank shield (1).

    23.4.Inspect for fuel leaks.
    24. Program the transmitters. Refer to Transmitter Programming/Synchronization in Keyless Entry.
    25. Perform the idle learn procedure. Refer to PCM Idle Learn Procedure.
    INSTALLATION PROCEDURE (LEFT)
    IMPORTANT: Always install a new fuel pump strainer before reinstalling the left fuel sender assembly. A fuel pump strainer that has been
    exposed to fuel will not unfold in the fuel tank and may block full travel of the float arm.
    1. Install a new fuel pump strainer in the same position as noted during disassembly. Push on the outer edge of the strainer ferrule until the strainer
    is fully seated.
    CAUTION: In order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury that may result from a fuel leak, always replace the fuel sender gasket
    and the fuel sender attaching bolts when reinstalling the fuel sender assembly.
    2. Install a new fuel sender gasket on the fuel sender.
    3. Fold the strainer three times so that the amount of space occupied by the strainer is about equivalent to the diameter of the fuel sender reservoir.
    3.1. Fold the long side of the strainer over (1 over 2).
    3.2. Fold 3 over 4 and hold the strainer in the folded position.
    4. Insert the fuel sender through the fuel tank opening.
    5. Release the strainer once the strainer is in the fuel tank. The strainer will spring back to its full position.
    6. Continue inserting the fuel sender through the fuel tank opening. It may be necessary to rotate the fuel sender in order to facilitate the installation.
    6.1. Look through the fuel tank opening to ensure that the long side of the strainer is visible.
    6.2. If the strainer is not visible, rotate the fuel sender clockwise and counterclockwise about 90 degrees. Rotating the fuel sender will free up
    the strainer. The strainer should become visible at the tank opening.
    IMPORTANT: Do not bend or twist the float arm.
    7. Insert the float and the float arm into the fuel tank opening.
    8. Install the float arm retaining clip.
    9. Align the fuel sender gasket tab (1) with the fuel sender cover mark (2).
    10. Align the fuel sender cover mark (2) with the fuel tank mark.
    NOTE: Refer to the Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
    11. Hand tighten the new "break-away head" fuel sender attaching bolts until finger tight.
