THE FUEL PUMP MUST BE REMOVED TO CHANGE THE PUMP IN THIS TRUCK, U DO THAT FROM UNDER THE TRUCK OF COURSE, THE PUMP IS HELP IN BY 2 STEEL STRAPS AND THE FILLER NECK, RAISE THE TRUCK UP AND PUT IT ON JACK STANDS, THEN PLACE A HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK UNDER THE FUEL TANK TO SUPPORT IT, REMOVE THE FILLER NECK FROMTHE TANK,THEN REMOVE THE 2 BOLTS THAT HOLD THE TANK STRAPS IN PLACE, LOWER THE TANK AND REACH UP AND DISCONNECT THE FUEL LINES AND VACUUM LINE AND THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR TO THE PUMP, SLOWLY DROP THE TANK AND WORK IT OUT OF THE SPACE IT RIDES IN, REVERSE THE PROCEDURE TO INSTALL, ALSO REMEMBER TO REPLACE THE CONNECTOR TO THE GAS TANK, THEY ARE A KNOWN PROBLEM AND AREPAIR CONNECTOR OFTEN COMES WITH THE NEW PUMP, INSTALL THAT AS WELL WITH PROPER CRIMPS TO EACH WIRE.

Before decided to do this make sure gas tank is near empty lift&secure the vehicle visual check around the gas tank make sure all fuel and evap lines are disconnected nothing hold the gas tank except holder brackets, use under jack and safely secure gas tank( do not use direct jack to gas tank use wooden piece to dont damage it)

HOW MUCH WOULD IT COST TO HAVE A FUEL PUMP INSTALED


George,
No simple diagram for changing the fuel pump. It is located inside the gas tank. The gas tank needs to be removed to change the pump. The pump is part of an assembly which consists of the pump, fuel gauge sender and pick up. You also need to change the fuel filter when you change the pump. It should take a professional mechanic about 3 hours to drain the fuel out of the tank, remove the tank, change the pump and fuel filter. Multiple the mechanic's time by whatever the repair shop charges per hour for labor. There are several different pump assemblies for the vehicle. Price depends on whether it's 2 or 4 doors and 2 or 4 wheel drive. Best guess is about $600 total.

How to change fuel pump 2000 montana


frist you need to empty the gas tank. then place the car on Jack stands.

there is going to be a hose that connected to the gas gas tank near the back of the tank you will have to disconnect that.
I placed a floor jack under the gas tank with a peice of wood between the tank and the jack for support. there are 3 straps that hold the tank up you will need to remove them.

then lower the tank to the floor. there are two hoes that are connect to the fuel pump that need to be disconnected but mark them so that you remember where they go. now disconnect the fuel pump electical plug.

silde the tank from under the car, and unsrew the fuel pump ring and pull the fuel pump out.

place the new fuel pump back in the same way you took it out and reverse the steps that you did to remove it.

you may want to replace the fuel filter also at the same time.

Need any tips i can get on changing my fuel pump


Using a floor jack brace the gas tank while you remove the straps. With the tank braced in place remove the small screws holding the neck into the fuel door area. With someone helping slowly lower the tank while making sure the neck does not unbalance the tank. Once the tank is down remove all wires and fuel lines. Remove the retaining ring and there is your fuel pump. If possible remove and save as much gas as possible before beginning.
