How do I remove fuel pump from dodge 1998 1500

An easier way you may want to consider is removing the bed of the truck. There is only 6 bolts from underneath.2 in the front and 4 in the rear then just remove fuel cap and fuel neck screws and unplug tail light plugs on both sides.

Fuel pump replacement on a Ford F150 truck, pump in fuel tank.

There are two ways to do this. One, would be to drop the tank. If the tank is full then I would remove the bed. If it is empty then dropping the tank would be easier.

To remove the bed you disconnect the tail lights, tag light, and fuel hose. then, with one person on each side, pick up the bed and set it on the rear wheels and bumper. Then you will be able to access the fuel pump which is screwed into the top of the tank. It will have a lock on it that requires a specialized tool. If you dont have it I used a flat head screwdriver and tapped on it with a hammer.

How to remove gas tank of 1989 Chev 1500 after you removed plastic cover

This will sound ridiculous, but read on. The ABSOLUTE easiest way to work on your gas tank (including the fuel pump and sending unit) is to remove the bed bolts and slide the truck bed back about a foot. This gives you complete access without fighting with the fuel lines. It is MUCH faster and easier than removing the entire gas tank. Just remember to disconnect the wiring harness for the taillight assemblies in the rear before you move the bed. When I first heard about this, I thought the guy was nuts. However, once I tried it, I would NEVER pull a fuel tank again with the bed in place.

1998 cheverolet c1500 bad fuel pump need to drop the fuel tank

First have as little fuel in there as possible, half a tank will be heavy, 1/4 tank is manageable. You can buy pumps at the auto parts store.
Disconnect the battery, open the filler cap. Remove the filler hose and vent tubePut a jack with a section of 2x4 under the fuel tank. Undo the strap bolts, then lower the tank enough so you can disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connectors.
Once tank is removed you will need a flat blade screwdriver or chisel and a hammer to remove the ring holding the fuel pump.
Remove the fuel pump then do the reverse to install (you may have to splice in a new connector).

You will have to drop the tank to replace it. Sometimes its easier to remove the bed, especially if the tank has fuel in it.

Fuel pump removeal

you have 2 choices, first and easiest is to remove the truck bed, remove 4-6 bed bolts, elect. connector for lights, and 6 strong men. the other is to drop the fuel tank, pretty tough if your fuel tank is full.

I need to drain the gas tank on my 1998 Chev. k1500 to change the fuel pump. What's the easyest way to drain the tank?

Unbolt the bed bolts, remove the tailgate, unplug the light harness, and unbolt the fuel filler where it bolts to the bedside and get a couple of buddies to lift off the bed. That way you don't have to drop or drain the tank. It's much faster, on my truck it's only four bolts and the bed is not that heavy.

Will crank on ether but not without. what is best way to check if fuel pump is working? Has fire to the plugs. Also transmission shifts fine going forward with no slipping but will not go into reverse. its...

Check to see if there is a blown fuse before you try anything.
You should be able to hear it run. Turn the ignition key to the on position and remove the fuel line before the lift pump, should have fuel coming through.
If you have to replace the fuel pump in the tank the best way I found is to actually lift the box. Fuel lines are very short and are easily bent when trying to re-install the lines. You will still of course have to drop the tank but this way makes it much easier to access.
