Dont go replacing everything...thats gonna get expensive real quick...especially that fuel pump. yep...the pump is inside the tank. stand out side your truck,and turn the key over,but not enough to start it. you should haer a whirring sound lasting about 2-3 secs. come from the back of the truck. this is the fuel pump powering up. if you dont hear it...then the pump is bad. if you do hear it, have a friend turn the key while you look at the carb/injectors to see if fuel is spraying thruthem,if it isnt....then you have a clogged fuel filter. BUT...b4 you do any of this...check your fuel pump relay and fuse to make sure they are good. a 10 cent fuse beats a 200 dollar pump any day.
keep me posted!!

My 89 jeep cherokee won't. Start it will turn over

what motor? is the coil producing spark?? If so, check the fuel pressure, if the fuel pressure is low drop the tank, repace the pump and also replace the filter (located on the frame forward of the tank). If the coil is not producing spark, check for shorts or opens in the circuits as well as the IGN fuses. If there is NO fuel pressure at all check the fuel pump fuses and make sure the fuel pump is plugged in and there are no opens in the circuit

Where is my fuel pump located???

It is located in the fuel tank. Use a brass punch or hardwood to keep from creating sparks when removing the retainer ring. The pump can be replaced as just the pump unit by removing the old one from the assembly once you've removed the assembly from inside the fuel tank, and reinstalling the new pump & connecting the wiring & a new filter, or as a complete assembly that just inserts into the fuel tank and plugs in to the wiriing harness once reassembled. hook up the lines & good to go. eBay has this pump & assembly available, I checked. good luck

Where is the fuel pump located on my 1989 Jeep Cherokee?

Right behind the battery under the hood. Pull off the black cover with two turn clips and it should be the second relay if you're looking at the car.

Need to know location of fuel pump in a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The fuel pump will be located inside your gas tank which will require you to remove the straps and to drop the tank down... The filter depending on the car, will either be inside the fuel tank, or outside of it near the front of the tank.

Other issues that may cause bad idling would be a bad TPS or EGR

would start with those.

the fuel filter is usually located under the hood by the intake manifold and attached to the firewall of the car. the pump is located right by the fuel tank and if you cant see it then its inside the fuel tank. (you will have to lower the fuel tank down to get to the pump.)

Fuel fileter

Get under the vehicle and start at the fuel tank and go forward you will find it. If its a Grand Cherokee Laredo the fuel filter is located inside the fuel pump so the whole fuel pump has to be replaced
