I do not recommend cutting above the tank you can do alot more damage.the tank is fairly easy to remove and is the only safe way i know to change a fuel pump.

Can I cut an access hole in floor above fuel tank to remove fuel pump on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am instead of dropping fuel tank and if so, where would I cut out access hole location?


You would have to figure out a way to cut the floor without cutting the tank. The gap is less than one inch. And the fuel lines come out with the sending unit. They have to be disconnected a few inches away from the sending unit.

Fuel pump is bad. need to replace it. do i need an eletcric fuel pump or a regular fuel pump..i hve a 2002 chrysler sebring conv. LX 2.7L


All vehicles with fuel injection use a high-pressure pump mounted inside the gas tank. This is virtually all vehicles built since about 1990. I don't know about this particular vehicle, some have an access panel above the tank that allows you to remove the pump without dropping the tank, others don't. Dropping a nearly full tank of gas is no easy task. Try asking your auto parts store or the Chrysler parts counter if this car has such an access panel.

By the way, the pump is immersed in the fuel, and uses the fuel to cool the pump. Never let your tank get below 1/4 full to reduce overheating of the pump, which shortens its life. Occasionally is OK, but running below 1/4 tank on a regular basis will cut the life of the pump significantly.

Fuel pump replacement. I have a 1989 firebird. Need to know if there is a easier way to do fuel pump. without having to take everythin off car.


Yes, there is another way to replace the fuel pump of your firebird. Many other cars, like my 1993 mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4, had an access hatch built into the car that you can simply open above the gas tank and fual pump, remove and replace the fuel pump, and close the hatch. I have owned many 82-92 firebirds, and a 1987 GTA I bought, the previous owner had simply cut a hatch right above the location of the fuel pump in the gas tank, peeled the metal back, pulled out and replaced the fuel pump through the hole, and then pushed down the metal and sealed the edges closed. It wasn't real pretty, but it is underneath the back carpet and no one would ever see that repair. So yes, you can replace the fuel pump this way, and I believe you could actually place a hinge on the piece cut out and make a hatch there that looks OK, so you can do the repair again in the future if necessary.
It's a real shame GM did not do this simple thing, put a hinged door above the fuel pump, when they built the cars, like other cars do. If and when I have to replace a fuel pump, I am going to have a hatch put in my firebirds above the fuel pump when the repair is done.

I have a 2002 chevy avalanch to replace the fuel pump


You can do it, but it's a mickey mouse way. Cut a hole in the floor above the gas tank where the fuel pump mounting plate is. Be careful not to cut any fuel lines, wires, or the tank itself, or you could have a fire or explosion. Then when you are done, you will need to reattach and seal the cut-out section somehow. Too much rigmarole if you ask me.
Much safer to just drop the tank... a litle more work, but less pissing around. Good Luck.

1995 chevrolet pickup 1500, how do I remove gas tank


the fuel tank must be removed from the vehicle to replace pump or lift the box from the frame. If you remove the tank it is held up with two tank straps and the lines must be unhooked as you lower it. good luck unless you have access to a lift.

Fuel pump "mount" inside gas tank of Saab 900SE V6


To replace the fuel pump from above, without dropping the tank, you must cut your own access hole. Here is a complete illustrated tutorial for the procedure, including replacement of the pump insert itself.
