I am changing the fuel pump on a 1998 chevrolet

I am changing the fuel pump on a 1998 chevrolet 1500 truck. It has metal fitting on the 2 fuel hoses instead of the plastic squeeze type I have seen before. How do the metal ones release so I can remove them?

First, don't forget to pull the fuel pump relay and try to start the truck (make it die) to relieve the fuel pressure. If it's not the kind of filter that you use two wrenches to loosen, then you need a special tool to release it, or you have to make one. I personally cut a strip out of some thick plastic, like a bucket, or something like that, fashion it into a circle, and slide it into the female side of the connector. This releases the springs that hold it together, so you can slide it apart. If you'd rather use the appropriate tools, you can buy them at about any place that sells parts for 3-$8.

I can't get the fuel pump to lock into place in the fuel tank. The metal lip of the pump will not turn into the grooves on top of the tank. How can I get the pump to fit into the tank?

i assume you are using a new gasket??? try supporting the tank at both ends and let the center sag, these pump units have very little tolerance

Truck runs for two seconds an shut down i changed fuel pump an filter and it still shuts down but it only stay running when i put gas down in the throttle body i had a 1996 chevy 1500 i was wondering can...

No, the fuel regulator from a 96 will not fit a 98. The 98 is a vortec and i believe the 96 is TBI. You are on the right track though, but the fuel regulator is attached to the fuel injector spider and is one unit inside the upper intake. It is relative easy to replace just takes some time.

How do I remove fuel pump from dodge 1998 1500

An easier way you may want to consider is removing the bed of the truck. There is only 6 bolts from underneath.2 in the front and 4 in the rear then just remove fuel cap and fuel neck screws and unplug tail light plugs on both sides.
