Unless there is an access panel above the fuel pump, yes you will have to drop the fuel tank. Look at the location of the fuel tank and how that corresponds to the vehicle. This will tell you where to look for an access panel. If you must drop the tank, then siphon as much fuel as possible out of the tank before removing it. You can purchase a very inexpensive hand pump at most auto parts stores.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1991 Toyota Cressida locaded and how do you get to it

Fuel pumps on these vehicles from the early '80's to present are in the fuel tank. It's electric fuel pump and the system works fine, until it doesn't. You'll have to empty the fuel tank and drop it from the vehicle to get to the top of it. Check first for a cover over the fuel tank in the trunk. You may get lucky and not have to drop the tank. Good luck.

Any tips on R/R fuel pump on a 91 toyota corolla? im pretty sure the only access point requires dropping the tank, but am goin into this blind so exp. advice wood be greatly appreciated...

  • Prepare the vehicle for fuel pump servicing. Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Wait at least 90 seconds on vehicles equipped with an air bag before doing anything else.

  • Access the fuel pump by removing the bottom of the rear seat. Open the service hole in the rear floor. Take out the bolts that hold the fuel tank set plate to the fuel tank and remove the fuel pump assembly.

  • Disconnect the fuel pump sender and electrical connection for the fuel pump. Remove the outlet tube and return the tube from the fuel pump bracket. Separate the bracket from the fuel tank and pull the lower part of the fuel pump away from the bracket. Disconnect the fuel hose and rubber cushion from the fuel pump. Remove the small clip that holds the fuel filter to the pump.

  • Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit, and be sure to replace the rubber cushion and clip. Use a torque wrench to tighten the attaching bolts for the fuel tank set to 30 in. lbs.

    I can't find the location of fuel filter in my toyota corolla 2002 1.8 lt engine.

    The fuel filter for a Toyota Corolla from 2002 and later is inside the fuel tank there is no external fuel filter. It's generally assumed that these filters don't need to be replaced unkless the fuel pump is replaced which is also inside the fuel tank.

    My 1991 Toyota Corolla had it's fuel pump replaced 3 months ago.

    Yes. may be filter. But first check fuel pressure at injector rail. Should be approx 40 PSI. any lower will cause these symptoms.

    Replacing fuel filter should be a given when changing pump, get it changed today.
