Depending on how rusted your Blazer is. You either remove the bolts from the straps or cut the straps off and replace both. Get a 2x4 and place of lift jack. The tanks should be about empty or a pain to lift. Lift the jack up to take some of the weight off the tank. Try to unbolt straps. If no luck. Get out a hand power grinder. Start cutting. That's about the only way I know. We removed my son's fuel tank off a 1988 GMC pickup last Sunday. Everything was rusted BAD The straps had to be cut. We didn't have any replacements. So we used 3 ATV orange racket straps. Worked fine so far.

Is there a door under the back seat of the 1999 traiblazer to get to the fuel sensor?

Sorry, but you have to remove the gas tank to replace the sensor (sending unit) and fuel pump.
It is a fairly complicated and potentially dangerous job for the home mechanic to do.
It involves de-pressurizing the fuel system, removing the gas, raising the vehicle, disconnecting the hoses and electrical lines, removing the tank, and removing the sending unit/pump.

Where is the fuel filter located on my 2004 Chevy Trail Blazer? WE

On 05+ Trail Blazer, the fuel filter is integral with the fuel pump inside of the fuel tank. It is a non-serviceable part. On 02-04s, the filter is on the drivers side frame rail at about the B-pillar. If your trail Blazer is a late 04 which means that it was build close to the 05 Trail Blazer, you may have a non serviceable fuel filter. Good luck and check under your Trail Blazer or look at your manufactured date sticker on the door which would help you indicate if your 04 is a early Trail Blazer and you'll have the fuel filter on the inside frame rail under the driver's door.

    2000 blazer runs rough after gas tank was overfilled

    there is a vapour purge line from the tank to a charcoal cannister. The line& cannister has been contaminated with liquid gas. When the engine attempts a normal purge from cannister it gets loaded with raw gas, causing rough running and cherck engine light. Replace cannister. Never over fill gas tank, especially on hot sunny days
