How do you drop the gas to to repair/replace the gas tank float for a 1994 ford thunderbird?

First you need to change it all not just the float because it is old and why do it twice ...Y need complete pump and float kit...It will be hard to do without a lift also you need to have almost no fuel in it before you do it...There is only a couple straps and push fittingd also filler hose and evap hose...If you have never done it I dont recommend it in the yard.......Metalpoet.....Not as easy as it seems.

I have the check engine light on, the engine will start and run at idle when the rpm's are incresed it sound like it has a bit of a miss at about 4000rpm and when throttle is let off the engine stalls...

Probably the fuel filter or pipe is partly blocked. When it runs at idle it has inough fuel. When you push the pedal it cant suply inough fuel and the engine sucks the fuel sistem dry, thats why it is so hard to restart the engine. Ewery time, when you turn on the egnition, the fuel pump in the tank is working only for three or more seconds. Because of blocked fuel pipe, or filter, it takes more time to pump up the fuel in the sistem. Chek the fuel filter and blow the fuel pipe.

2002 hyundai accent fueltank probem

hi from uk providing you are pushing gas pump nozzle fully in so as to open flap unside tank filler pipe ? then your problem may be that to enable fuel to enter tank it also has to displace/vent the air from tank too so if you check under the wheel arch below tank filler you will see the filler pipe to tank? and alongside held with clips is another tube/pipe which is the vent pipe from tank make sure it is not kinked or more than likely blocked/obstructed with dirt/mud at its open end of tube this being positioned under arch does collect mud/grime from wheels spray resulting in blockage/restriction hence problem venting tank when refuelling hope this helps?

1997 crown victoria is haveing a hard time starting/ stalls... rev up stalls... could it be coil packs? or fuel pump? once it is started and been running for the day it will usually start without problem.

its not likley to be coil packs or it would not start and run at all,, it could be fuel pump, or its letting the fuel run back to the tank when its been standing so when you try starting its running on whats in the carb untill the pump brings up more fuel all the way from the tank??? have a look at the fuel tank is the vent blocked???? try leaving the tank filler cap off? naughty yes! but if the vents blocked the car will run just fine after doing this,,, have a look at the fule pipes any holes in them witch would also let fuel run back to the tank and also let in air so the pump is pushing air as well as fuel and working twice as hard as it need to,,i cant think of any more right now,
hope this helps you out

Where is the fuel pump in a 3.4 2000 chevy impala? is it hard to replace?

Please don't forget to rate!!!!

Pump is in the tank and here is the procedures to do the job:

Fuel Pump Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Relieve the fuel system fuel pressure.
  2. Drain the fuel tank from the filler neck as much as possible.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Loosen the clamp and remove the filler hose from the fuel tank.
  5. Disconnect the fuel and EVAP quick-connect fittings at the fuel tank.
  6. Remove the exhaust pipe hangers and allow the exhaust system to drop slightly.
  7. Separate the EVAP fresh air line at the splice.
  8. Remove the fuel tank shield.
  9. Support the fuel tank with a suitable jack.
  10. Remove the two bolts securing the fuel tank straps.
  11. Lower the fuel tank from the vehicle.
  12. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the fuel pump assembly.
  13. Clean the fuel pipe connections with compressed air to prevent contamination during removal.
  14. Disconnect the quick-connect fittings at the fuel sender assembly.
  15. Remove the fuel sender retaining ring and remove the fuel sender assembly. The modular fuel sender assembly will spring-up when the snap ring is removed.
To Install:
Be careful not to fold or twist the fuel inlet strainer when installing the fuel sender assembly, this will restrict fuel flow. Also, make sure the float arm is able to move freely.
  1. Place a new fuel sender assembly seal on the tank and install the fuel sender assembly.
  2. Holding the fuel sender in place and install the retaining ring.
  3. Connect the quick-connect fittings at the fuel sender assembly.
  4. Connect the electrical connectors.
  5. Place the fuel tank on a suitable jack and raise it in position under the vehicle.
  6. Install the fuel tank strap bolts. Tighten the bolts to 35 lb ft (48 Nm).
  7. Install the fuel tank shield.
  8. Connect the fuel and EVAP quick-connect fittings at the fuel tank.
  9. Connect the EVAP fresh air hose at the splice.
  10. Install the fuel tank filler hose to the fuel tank.
  11. Raise the exhaust and install the exhaust pipe hangers.
  12. Lower the vehicle.
  13. Add fuel and install the fuel filler pipe cap.
  14. Connect the negative battery cable.
  15. Perform the following to pressurize the fuel system;
    • Turn the ignition ON, for 2 seconds.
    • Turn the ignition OFF, for 10 seconds.
    • Turn the ignition ON.
  16. Inspect the fuel system fuel leaks.

How do I remove the fuel tank from my x300? I have undone the two straps, wireing, and disconnected the fuel pipe but the tank is still quite rigid and does not want to move, can you help.

After removing all connections and wiring from the tank and the sending unit and depressurize fuel system and drain the fuel tank and most importantly TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY this is what you have to do :
1- Make sure to mark the wires for the sending unit so that you do not have a problem connecting in the correct place. 2- Remove bolts securing spare wheel mounting bracket and remove bracket. 3- Remove tank upper insulation pad. 4- Disconnect fuel pump harness from evaporative loss flange connection 5- Release harness attached to tank retaining straps and reposition harness downward. 6- Disconnect vapor pipe assembly from underbody pipe. 7- Push back collars on quickfit connectors and remove vapor pipe and over-pressure pipe from evaporative loss flange port. 8- Remove bolts securing tank retaining straps. 9- reposition straps upwards for access. 10- Remove strap holding filler housing solenoid block connector to harness and disconnect connector. 11- Disconnect drain tube from aperture seal (small pipe beside big one) 12- Open filler cap and remove filler neck garter spring. 13- Remove filler housing bolts. 14- Displace filler housing from body opening 15- Remove fuel tank. 16- Remove hose from evaporative loss flange and filler neck , ( Bend weld tag upwards to release hose). 17- Remove evaporative loss flange lock ring. 18- Lift flange from tank enough to disconnect fuel pump harness. 19- Remove flange and seal. 20- Inside tank , loosen hose clamps and remove fuel hoses from fuel pump module. 21- Remove fuel pump module and mounting rubber , note position of mounting rubber lugs. 22- Loosen hose clamps and remove two fuel hoses inside tank. 23- Remove tank sending unit. 24- Remove magnetic drain plug and make sure that you clean it well.
That is it your tank is out , and make sure that you mark every thing that you disconnected to install back in its proper place.
If you need any more help please let me know
