How do i get to fuel pump on my 2005 cavaliar

The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank.The 2 straps that hold up the tank, and carefully lower it. The fuel tank is easier to handle ,if you empty the fuel. As you lower the tank, the fuel lines need to come off. After the tank is removed ,remove the ring on top and that holds the fuel pump in place

Fuel pump insalllation

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Jack
  • Safety stands
  • Wrench
  • Socket wrench
  • Pliers
  • Screwdriver
  1. 1 Jack up the car and support it with safety stands. Be sure the car is high enough to get the tank out from underneath the car. You could use a car lift instead. If you use a lift, you will need an automatic transmission jack or a second person to help you lower the tank to the ground.
  2. 2 Unclamp and remove the filler and vent hoses from the gas tank. Most are held on with aero type hose clamps. Unplug any wiring to the fuel pump and sensors. Using wrenches or pliers, remove the fuel lines at the pump. You might need to lower the tank one to two feet to remove the lines and wires.
  3. 3 Support the gas tank with the jack. Use socket wrenches to unbolt the gas tank straps. Remove or reposition the straps out of the way of the tank. Lower the tank some and check to make sure all lines, hoses and wires have been removed. Continue lowering the tank and place it on the ground.
  4. 4 Clean the tank area around the fuel pump assembly of all dirt and debris. Release the pump assembly retainer. This may held to the tank with a clamp, a slip ring or screw nuts. Remove the pump assembly from the tank. Drain any liquid fuel from the assembly and place on a work bench.
  5. 5 Remove the pump from the assembly and discard or replace the entire assembly. Some pumps can only be replaced as a unit. If you can replace just the pump be sure to install the new sock filter that comes with the pump.
  6. 6 Return the repaired pump assembly to the tank. Use new gaskets or O-rings if supplied. Secure it into the tank with the retainer.
  7. 7 Place the gas tank back onto the jack and raise it to the car. Reinstall the fuel lines, hoses and wiring. Continue raising into its cavity on the body. Secure the tank with the gas tank straps and tighten with a socket wrench.
  8. 8 Reinstall the filler and vent hoses. Tighten the clamps. It is a good idea to also replace the fuel filter at this time. Lower the car to the ground. Test for leaks and repair any found.

hi! there, disconnecting fuel pump,you mean dismantling or pull out the fuel pump to the fuel tank,fuel pump is located mostly inside fuel tank mostly there is access panel under the back set of the car or in the trunk of the vehicle,this means you wiil to lower fuel tenk from the car to disconnect/pull out the fuel pump.This can be a difficult job,so it's better to take your car in any service car facility center.
besides fuel is extremely flamable do not smoke when working on fuel sustem and keep any spark or other sources of ignition away from the fuel tank.
before moving fuel tank remove as much as fuel is possible inside the tank,use hand sipon pump to **** all fuel.there is drain bolt under the tank don't try to open this using wrench or electric bolter it might spark the fuel .donot **** fuel by your mouth by hose and by gravity to rdain out fuel is bad for heart..take all the necessary precaution handling job.double check under the back set if there an access opening w/o dropping the tank,if there 's one no need to lower the tank.
if no opening, lowerering the tankmake sure the parking brake is set,the transmission or tranaxle is in park position,and the front wheels are chocked with blocks or bricks for assurance no movement of car.raised the raer of the car with a safety jack,after raising support this by two jackstand for proper holding wieght of car.disconnect the filter neck from the fuel tank by loosening or removing the clamp that hold the hose on the tank.
Remove either the front two bolt or the rear two bolt that secure the fuel tank straps to your car.then gently lower one end of the tank.this will allow you to reach the wiring connection fuel line and vent hoses on top of the tank.disconnect wires and hoses before removing the two remaining bolts that hold the other end of the straps the lower the tank

1999 jeep cherokee do you have to remove the fuel pump to replace

The combination Fuel Filter/Fuel Pressure Regulator is located on the fuel pump module. The fuel pump module is located on top of fuel tank.

The filter/regulator may be removed without removing fuel pump module although fuel tank must be removed.

  1. Remove fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.
  2. Clean area around filter/regulator.
  3. Disconnect fuel line at filter/regulator. Refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
  4. Remove retainer clamp from top of filter/regulator. Clamp snaps to tabs on pump module. Discard old clamp.
  5. Pry filter/regulator from top of pump module with 2 screwdrivers. Unit is snapped into module
  6. Discard gasket below filter/regulator.
    1. Before discarding filter/regulator assembly, inspect assembly to verify that O-rings are intact. If the smallest of the two O-rings can not be found on bottom of filter/regulator, it may be necessary to remove it from the fuel inlet passage in fuel pump module.
    1. Clean recessed area in pump module where filter/regulator is to be installed.
    2. Obtain new filter/regulator (two new O-rings should already be installed)
    3. Apply a small amount of clean engine oil to O-rings. Do not install O-rings separately into fuel pump module. They will be damaged when installing filter/regulator.
    4. Install new gasket to top of fuel pump module.
    5. Press new filter/regulator into top of pump module until it snaps into position (a positive click must be heard or felt).
    6. The arrow molded into top of fuel pump module should be pointed towards front of vehicle (12 O'clock position).
    7. Rotate filter/regulator until fuel supply tube (fitting) is pointed towards front of vehicle (12 O'clock position).
    8. Install new retainer clamp (clamp snaps over top of filter/regulator and locks to flanges on pump module).
    9. Connect fuel line at filter/regulator. Refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
    10. Install fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Removal/Installation.

Two different procedures may be used to drain fuel tank (lowering tank or using DRB scan tool).

The quickest draining procedure involves lowering the fuel tank.

As an alternative procedure, the electric fuel pump may be activated allowing tank to be drained at fuel rail connection. Refer to DRB scan tool for fuel pump activation procedures. Before disconnecting fuel line at fuel rail, release fuel pressure. Refer to the Fuel System Pressure Release Procedure for procedures. Attach end of special test hose tool number 6541, 6539, 6631 or 6923 at fuel rail disconnection (tool number will depend on model and/or engine application). Position opposite end of this hose tool to an approved gasoline draining station. Activate fuel pump and drain tank until empty.

If electric fuel pump is not operating, tank must be lowered for fuel draining. Refer to following procedures.

  1. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.
  2. Release fuel system pressure. Refer to the Fuel System Pressure Release.
  3. Raise and support vehicle.
  4. If Equipped: Remove fuel tank skid plate.
  5. Remove 4 fuel hose shield mounting bolts and remove fuel hose shield from body.
    1. Remove fuel tank fill hose and vent hose clamps at fuel tank filler tube. Remove both hoses at fuel filler tube.
    2. Remove exhaust tailpipe heat shield mounting bolts and remove shield. CAUTION: To protect fuel tank from exhaust heat, this shield must reinstalled after tank installation.
    3. Place a hydraulic jack to bottom of fuel tank. WARNING: PLACE A SHOP TOWEL AROUND FUEL LINES TO CATCH ANY EXCESS FUEL .
      1. Disconnect fuel supply line from fuel extension line near front of fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tubes/Lines/Hoses and Clamps. Also refer to Quick-Connect Fittings for procedures.
      2. Disconnect EVAP canister vent line near front of tank.
      3. Disconnect fuel pump module electrical connector (pigtail harness) near front of tank. Harness connector is clipped to body.
        1. Remove two fuel tank strap nuts. Position both tank support straps away from tank.
        2. Carefully lower right side of tank while feeding both fuel hoses through access hole in body. Fuel Tank Full And Not Drained Using DRB Scan Tool: To prevent fuel loss through hoses, keep left side of tank higher than right side while lowering. Do not allow hose openings to drop lower than top of tank.
        3. Continue lowering tank until clear of vehicle. Place tank on floor with left side (hose side) higher than right side
          1. Drain tank by removing fuel fill hose at tank. Fuel fill hose is largest of 2 hoses. Insert the drain hose (from an approved gasoline draining station) into hose opening. Drain tank until empty.
          2. If fuel pump module removal is necessary, refer to Fuel Pump Module Removal/installation for procedures.
          1. If fuel pump module is being installed, refer to Fuel Pump Module Removal/installation for procedures.
          2. Install fuel fill/vent hoses to tank fittings. To prevent hose from kinking, rotate each hose until index mark on hose is aligned to index tang on fuel tank.
          3. Install hose clamps to hoses. Position clamps between index marks on each hose.
          4. Position fuel tank to hydraulic jack.
