SOURCE: how to rmove fuel from fuel tank of 2000 chevy express van?

Some fuel tanks have a drain **** that will allow you to drain all of the gas neatly. If you have a drain ****, it will be located at the lowest point on the tank. Loosen the valve and allow the gas to completely drain.
If your tank has no drain ****, you'll have to drain it by removing one of the fuel lines. The rubber hose that exits the tank at its lowest point will drain the tank fully. It will either be connected to an electric fuel pump, fuel filter, or to a hard fuel line that goes to the front of the car. Loosen the clamp on the end of the line that connects to the gas tank. Pull the hose off and allow the gas to run out of the tank into your container until it is drained completely.

the easiest way i know is to go and purchase around 7.00 dollars a hand pump like for boats take a sscrew driver and open the tank valve on the tank for puting nozzle in. put the long end of hose into tank and start pumping. the other way i have had to do is use a jack and lower the tank a little and take off the fuel pump and put a hose into the tank and syphon it out that way then finish lowering tank

SOURCE: i am trying to remove my fuel tank from a 96 chevy suburban and replace the fuel pump

Hello michelle...here are the basic steps for tank removal...

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Drain the tank.
Raise the rear of your vehicle and support it with jackstands.
Remove the clamp on the filler neck and the vent tube hose.
If equipped, remove the gauge hose which is attached to the frame.
If equipped, remove the fuel tank shield.
While supporting the tank securely with a floor jack (a 2 x 6 helps), remove the support straps and insulators.
Lower the tank until the gauge wiring, electrical connections and all hoses can be removed. The wires and hoses are not long enough to reach the ground, so watch closely.
Remove the tank.
Good luck, please take time to rate me if you find this response helpful and thanks for usein FIXYA.

ok i'm going to guess that you have a gasoline engine with a side tank like in a pickup truck. if you have a diesel let me know, things might be a little different. here's the step by step for a gas side tank. before you start, disconnect the battery negative cable.
1. drain the fuel from the tank (they don't tell you how, just get as much out as you can)
2.raise and safely support vehicle (get it high enough that you can get under it to work on it)
3.loosen the fuel neck hose at fuel neck and disconnect filler neck from tank
4.support tank and remove tank support straps and insulator strips
5.remove frame mounted bracket
6.lower fuel tank shield
7.lower fuel tank enough to gain access to fuel and electrical connections
8.disconnect fuel feed and vapor hoses
9.disconnect electrical connectors
10.remove fuel sender assembly and seal ring
now to install new tank
1.install NEW seal ring and install sender
2.raise tank enough to connect fuel feed /vapor hoses and electrical connector
3.raise tank fully
4.install fuel tank shield
5.connect fuel tank filler neck and tighten clamp
CAUTION tighten fuel strap fasteners in steps, alternating between straps, until proper torque is reached. failure to properly follow this step can cause bottom of tank to deform. fuel gauge may read improper level if this occurs
6.install fuel tank brackets and insulator strips
torque nuts to 115 in-lbs
7.install fuel tank filler cap
8.connect battery negative cable
9.turn ignition switch off and on and check for leaks
it's pretty much the same for rear tank, just different location, may have off-road shield in back and torque spec is 47 ft-lbs, not 115 in-lbs. you still have to alternate when you torque straps or you risk deforming tank. hope that helps

How do you change the fuel sending unit on a Chevy Malibu? The unit is located, so I am told, on top of the fuel tank (not inside) where the fuel pump goes into fuel tank. Any idea how much would it cost...


The fuel "level" sending unit is located on the side of the fuel pump module, see red arrow on picture below. The fuel tank will need to be dropped and the fuel pump module removed in order to replace the fuel level sending unit. You can expect to pay a couple hours of labor to remove the tank and replace the level sending unit.

the fuel tank pressure sensor is located on top of the fuel pump module. The fuel tank will still need to be lowered to get at it but the fuel pump module does not need to be removed from the tank to replaced it.

2005 Chevy Malibu/Maxx has been starting irregularly for about 3-months (after I had front brakes installed at Precision Tune--the engine light came on) and now the delay is increasing with at least two...


First clean your ejector give a trier if problem persists then change the fuel filter if it is clogged up. If the filter is clogged up then your fuel tank is light lying to be dirty, hence you may bring it down for cleanup. The last thing to do if there others failed then it could be the fuel pump is very weak and need to be replaced.

Where the fuel filter is located on chevy malibu maxx 2005


along the frame rail, will need special tools that you can get at any parts store. Remove gas cap to depressurize the system first. You will still have to get agressive with the line, sometimes u think your going to break it.
