No you don't. you can cut a whole in the bottom of your car to reach the access to the tank. But that involves precision. One little mistake could cause a whole in the tank meaning tank needs replacing, cutting a fuel line meaning line needs replacing, or cutting wires which would need to be spliced again. Some vechiles actually have an access panel to the fuel tank but I don't belive this one does. So best advice, drop the tank.

1995 GMC JIMMY WONT START UNLESS I PRIME IT THEN IT JUST DIES ITS FUEL INJECTED


It sounds like you have a defective fuel pump. The pump is locate inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to replace the pump. Please follow this procedure to remove the fuel tank.
Disconnect neg battery cable, safely raise vehicle, place floor jack under tank, loosen gas tank straps and allow tank to slowly drop halfway, disconnect( this is the hard part) fuel lines,and power connections at tank. Drop tank. With a brass hammer/punch carefully remove retaining ring/seal.Reverse to install.A new pump module will cost you $300-$400 at the dealer. Don't use a cheap pump replace the entire assembly because this is a float/sender/pump/ in one. Replace your fuel filter too or the fuel pump warranty is voided..

How to replace fuel pump


Empty fuel tank, support fuel tank, remove straps from tank (you'll probably have to replace those). Remove fuel filler neck from inside fuel door or at tank, drop tank, remove wire clips and fuel lines as necessary, remove fuel pump, put new pump in. Installation is reverse.

I think the fuel pump is not working, do I have to drop the gas tank to replace?


Yes the fuel tank has to come out to replace the fuel pump.Easier if tank is 1/4 tank or lower.Before doing this make sure that your getting power to the fuel pump.If not check the fuses and the connector for the fuel pump.You can check for power with a test light.It will be the gray wire.Light should come on when the key is turned on.Will only stay on for 2 or 3 seconds unless you crank it.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Need to install fuel pump in 1991 pontiac firebird


Sorry. Got to drop the tank. Just break the gas tank bolts and replace them with new ones. If the straps are badly rusted, replace them, too. Look for tank leaks on the top of the tank. Replace the sock on the fuel pump.

1996 Ford Bronco Fuel Pump Replacement


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.
