You "could" remove the bed, or just lift it high enough to work on the tank. There are 6 or 8 bolts depending if it is a short bed or long bed. But you should undo the 2 straps from underneath, the filler tube from the gas cap filler, and lower the tank with a jack. Another problem these trucks have is the wiring connection to the sending unit/fuel pump assembly. GM recommends to replace this harness end when you work on it. (about $12.00 for the harness connection). These sending units/pumps retail about $300-$400, but you can find them on line starting about $120.00.

The fuel pump is located on top of the gas tank. I would not cut a hole in the bead of the truck, could cut harness or gas tank, it would be easyer to just remove the bed, four bolt's is all that hold's the bed and disconnect the wiring harness, good luck and I hope this was very helpful.

I have 2005 chevy truck 1500 want to know where is the fuel pump located?


The fuel pump is actually screwed to the top of the fuel tank and the body of the pump goes down inside the fuel tank. The tank must be lowered or the bed must be lifted to access the pump.

This sounds llike weak feul pressure, the fuelpump may need replacing, the first thing to do is have the fuel pressure tested and if the pressure is low then have the pump replaced. the pump is located inside the fuel tank and the tank will need to be dropped to replace the pump, good luck ,

How to change a fuel pump on a 2000 chevy 1500


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. You can either drop the fuel tank and remove the pump or get 3 friends and unbolt the bed and then remove the pump. Once you have access to the pump, disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connections. Then remove the pump from the tank.

Fuel pump or fuel pump relay on 1989 Chevy Suburban 1500 4x4


the relay and fuse are in the power distribution box under the hood. as far a by pass you still can use an aftermarket electric pump ,however the cost will be about the same as re3moving the old pump in the tank if that is the cause in the first place. if all you need is the relay replaced then i'm sure that the pump is still good. if the pump is bad then make sure if you by pass the in tank pump that the new under hood electric pump has enough pressure to give the needed gpm(gallons per minute) required for your system and that if wired into the current fuel circuit that you dissconnect the wire harness to your tank pump
