Replace fuel pump

Is it easier to replace the fuel pump by dropping the tank or lifting off the bed? I have fork trucks available to raise the bed.

Where do you unhook the wires for the taillights if you raise the bed off?

Brake line leaks above the gas tank-is there any easy way to fix this


Easy? No. Easier, yes. Remove truck bed bolts (~4-6, not hard to remove), raise bed by blocking bed up with 4x4 or 6x6 wood blocks. Access brake lines, fuel pump, etc. I lifted mine by myself to replace a fuel pump. I may have learned about tip on fixya long ago myself.

How do i change the fuel pump on a 2007 F350 super duty 6.0 diesel


siphon gas out drop the tank undo the harness twist the retaining ring pull pump. install in reverse.

probably be easier to just pull the truck bed off. usually requires unbolting 4-8 bolts holding bed on from inside the floor of bed. unhooking wiring harnwess and unhooking gas tank filler neck from hose leading to tank. you will need help of at least 3 others to pull the bed unless you devise a lift or a stand for your bed to sit on. think of it like a semi truck unhooking from a trailer. bed stays put truck moves forward. replace pump and back up under the bed and reattach. good luck

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.

Fuel Pump


The fuel pump is in the gas tank, the best way to do this is to get some friends and remove the bed from the frame. There is i believe 8 bolts that hold the bed to the frame, and don't forget to remove the hardware to the gas tank filler neck. Once the bed is off the frame, you can get to the fuel tank. Disconnect the wire harness and might as well replace the harness since there only $12.00 last i looked, disconnect the fuel line and return line. Remove the fuel pump retainer ring and lift up on the fuel pump sending unit. To install replace the rubber O ring and oil it before installing the new fuel pump sending unit. Install the fuel sending unit retaining ring, gas lines, new wire harness, and filler tube. Good lime also to check the hose to the EVAP since you can inspect them, look for any dry rot to the vacuum lines and replace if needed. Reinstall the bed and use lock tight to the bed bolts or replace them with stainless bolts. Good luck and hope this helps, oh and you might as well change the fuel filter while your have the bed off. The other way is to drop the gas tank which means draining the tank and raising the truck.

Fuel gauge stopped working


Can't say for sure since you did not include year of your car but more than likely it's the fuel sending unit that requires replacement. Some years you can replace just the level sensor on the fuel sending unit but both repairs involve dropping the gas tank and opening to remove the fuel sending unit.
