    Are these steel lines or the plastic ones? If steel , I would use some pb blaster an soak the threads for a bit . If they are the plastic ones they have lockin tabs that need to be popped up.

OK, there are the fuel lines that run to the TOP of the tank, and then the sender, float, screen, pickup tube, on the pump, which one cant you get off ?
If you are replacing this pump I would recommend purchasing the whole unit, it cost a little more but is worth not having to hassel taking evrything apart.
One more thing you MUST do is have the top of the gas tank clean enough to eat off of !
If you get ANY dirt into the tank it will clog up the intake screen and damage your pump.
Please let me know if you need anything else.

How do I get gas out of gas tank on a 1998 Jeep

no job stated, so cant help much. CONTEXT and symptoms do let me help 100x better, for sure.
the fsm covers this.
some cars have anti siphon valves in filler.
on my car is used the fuel pump in the car to pump it down.
but that takes a good fuel pump.(and make no sparks.......)

the fsm covers this. read that. ZJ book, free

is this a pump problem or gauge level problem
or EVAL issue. cant guess that. no way.
and the job in the FSM , is based on that.

ill assume the pump is dead 0 psi cranking for 3 seconds.
and had 12vdc to it , during the cranking event.

above link
open chapter fuel systems
then PDF page 10
there it is , the factory methods
step 11 is tricky ,read that first.

step 14, insert fuel draining station hose to the filler hose,
then pump it down
if DIY, (i have my own pumps, in a box) but you can use SOP
syphon hose now. avoid, drinking fuel. benzene is toxic, to max.
SOP. standard operating procedure of any gas thief (lol)

or connect hose to the filter pipe input
then to external gas tank
and hot wire the tank pump.
ways, all. (recap)
  1. drive it low, zero risk
  2. factory way, RTM.
  3. siphon way. at step 14
  4. external fuel pump way. at 14.
  5. hot wire stock pump way. (no factory steps, just filter pulled)

Replaced fuel pump and cant get fuel lines to prime

There is no priming to do

If the injectors are working, any air
in the lines comes out into the cylinders,
then the fuel & your good to go

The fuel pump will push out any air with the fuel

Does the pump come on for 3 seconds with key on?

Do you have fuel pressure on a gauge at the motor?
You can push the button on the gauge to bleed off your air

Fuel pump quit.replaced fuses.and relay switch. line blocked cant blow thru it.would that make fuel pump not work.if line is blocked???

A blocked fuel line can cause the fuel pump to burn out, or it can cause it to just shut off completely and it will not work until you have fixed the issue or the blockage.

Replaced the fuel pump in 1988 ford f250 and the engine still seems to not be getting fuel

follow fuel lines from gas tank to engine are any lines crushed. next replace fuel filter. check to be sure fuel filter is installed in right direction. arrow on fuel filter should point toward engine. double check that fuel lines are connected properly, some fuel pumps have three fuel lines one for pressure , one for return and one vent line.last possible bad fuel pump from factory

I don't think the fuel pump is pumping. Car wont

you would have to fnd the gas line that goes to your motor disconnect and crank car to see if feul comes ,but some cars have a fuel line with a valve that you push in the little pin in the middle and should shoot out fuel looks like your aircondition line but it should be next to fuel injection line

Sounds like you are rusted out. Even the factory parts are not that expensive and they are properly bent. Check the dealer.
If substituting aftermarket piping you want to either replace the bad section with a splice or the whole piece. Notice the end connections and where you will attach the replacements.
Notice the routing of the gas line away from hot exhaust parts and areas a lift jack will crush your line. Notice what moves close to the fuel line to allow for travel.

You may be able to splice a piece of rubber fuel line into a metal line with a few clamps.

I have seen everything you will need at Autozone and Oreillys and similar stores with the exception of Factory parts.
