How do I replace the fuel pump.

Depends on the vehicle. On most you have to drop the fuel tank. A very few have an access panel either in the trunk or under the back seat.

How to drop gas tank on 2005 CTS Cadillac

Much easier if the tank is empty. Siphon or pump the fuel out of the tank. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Raise the vehicle and install jack stands to ensure the vehicle is not going to drop on you. There are mechanical straps that hold the tank in place. There are also electrical connections for the fuel pump and fuel lines to be disconnected. Place a jack under the tank to support it and then remove the straps holding the tank in place. Lower the tank enough to gain access to the fuel lines and electrical connection. Disconnect the electrical and fuel lines and lower the tank until it clears the vehicle.
Be VERY careful with the fuel that was drained and whatever fuel remains in the tank. It is very dangerous.

Can I replace the fuel pump without taking out the gas tank on a Toyota 2008 RAV4.

You should be able to access it from the back of the fuel tank without dropping the tank, although you will have to raise the vehicle a bit to have good access.

Removal of gas tank and fuel pump

In order to "drop" a gas tank, you should remove a much fuel as possible before beginning. Once empty, jack up the vehicle (making sure it is secure and safe) and then unscrew the two straps used to hang the tank to the vehicle's undercarriage. Once the tank is down, please refer to the attached videos for the actual fuel pump removal and replacment.

Fuel pump is bad. need to replace it. do i need an eletcric fuel pump or a regular fuel pump..i hve a 2002 chrysler sebring conv. LX 2.7L

All vehicles with fuel injection use a high-pressure pump mounted inside the gas tank. This is virtually all vehicles built since about 1990. I don't know about this particular vehicle, some have an access panel above the tank that allows you to remove the pump without dropping the tank, others don't. Dropping a nearly full tank of gas is no easy task. Try asking your auto parts store or the Chrysler parts counter if this car has such an access panel.

By the way, the pump is immersed in the fuel, and uses the fuel to cool the pump. Never let your tank get below 1/4 full to reduce overheating of the pump, which shortens its life. Occasionally is OK, but running below 1/4 tank on a regular basis will cut the life of the pump significantly.

Fuel pump, where is it located, in the tank or out?

Most likely if this is a fuel injected vehicle which most modern vehicles are. The fuel pump is located in the gas tank. To get to it, you most likely have to drop your exhaust then drop your rear axle in most cases to then be able to drop the gas tank and access the fuel pump.
