SOURCE: replace fuel pump on a 2001 chevy cavalier

First, if your car still runs, pull the fuel pump relay, and start your car, letting it run until it dies. This will depressurize the fuel system. Then you must support the fuel tank, and take loose the straps that hold it up. Slowly lower the tank until you can unhook the tank filler hose and overflow hose by taking the clamps off and sliding the hoses off. lower it some more, and unhook the fuel lines; they require you to insert a special tool around the edge of the connection, however this can be improvised with screwdrivers or a piece of plastic or metal bent into a C shape. Next unhook the wire connection. Once you get it down, it's easiest to empty as much fuel as you can; as this will help you get it back into place. The fuel pump is inside the tank, which locks into place with a 1/8th turn. You will need a hammer and a brass punch for this job, as it needs to be tapped around to unlock. It will then lift out. Compare the two pump assemblies. The inside parts can be slightly different, but ensure that the fuel lines are IDENTICAL and the wire connection is IDENTICAL. The new one will come with a new silicone seal. Ensure that you don't put the new one in in such a way as the float doesn't bind, otherwise you'll be doing this procedure again if you don't like guessing how much gas you have. This can be a challenge to wrestle with putting the new one in, as you have to push it down to compress the new seal, and turn it to lock it. Once you get it started, you can let up and use the hammer and punch again to tighten it the rest of the way. Next, put it back together just as you took it apart, and don't forget to hook up the wires, hoses, and fuel lines. No tools required for the fuel lines, they just snap together. Once everything's tight and hooked up, put gas back in it, and if you haven't already, put the fuel pump relay back in. This you can do as soon as the car dies, and is completely optional if the car won't run at all. You are now ready to start it up, but turn the ignition on to the run position, wait a few seconds for the pump to pressurize, and then start it. Have fun, and feel free to ask any questions should you have any.

Does a chevy cavalier 2.0 fuel pump put out same pressure as 1998 dodge neon 2.0 dohc?


if its a racing fuel pump than it will have more BUT that will do you no good if you dont have racing fuel injectors, fuel rail, bigger intake manifold, bigger throtle body, and your mapping tuned in with a flashable pcm$$$$$$$$$$$$. stock fuel programing will let it run stock no matter how much pressor your fuel pump puts out. fuel injectors are solenoids that the pcm opens and closes they dont stay open. BUT IT WILL WORK

Where is the fuel reset button on a 98 cavalier located


There is no fuel reset button on a cavalier or any GM vehicle. The only manufacturer that uses them is Ford.

The fuel pump is controlled by the PCM which grounds the relay and allows power to the pump.

Have you checked for fuel pressure or for power to the pump?

I have changed the fuel pump twice on a 1998 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 Liter. I have also changed the fuel filter and the relay switch. The fuel pump wont kick on when I turn the key on.


The original Chevy pump motor has a good life. Running the vehicle out of fuel, which will actually run the pump in a dry state can shorten the expected life span considerably. Gasoline is a petroleum product and actually lubricates the inside of the fuel pump. The more you run the vehicle low on fuel or out of fuel, the more damage will occur and the quicker the pump will fail. Try replacing the pump and follow the above procedures for a good performance of the pumps. Cavalier fuel pumps available here
