How To Replace The Fuel Pump On A 1998 Chevy Blazer

To start, the fuel pump assembly is mounted in the gas tank. Jack up the truck and support with jackstands. From underneath you will need to disconnect the filler and overflow hoses from the tank, by removing the worm gear clamps holding the hoses to the metal filler tubes. Unbolt the two straps that are bolted to the underneath side of the body holding the gas tank to the underside of the truck, support the tank with jack, after the straps are undone, lower the gas tank some to get enough room to remove the fuel lines and the fuel pump/sending unit connector, also remove the small vacuum hose at the other end of the tank. Let the tank down, with a hammer and a screwdriver, turn the lock ring until it releases the pump assembly and remove. You may want to drain the gas from the gas tank, it always seems that the fuel pump goes out when you have alot of gas in the fuel tank, that will help when you go to put the fuel tank back into the truck. Reverse the procedure to install. Some Blazers have a plastic tank and some have a steel tank. You'll need to know which one when you go to buy the new one. They run about $250.00 at Auto Zone. I would also replace the fuel filter at this time also so you are starting out with everything fresh. Should take 2-4 hours to do the job. Have a few large gas cans to put the gas from the tank in.

Electric fuel pump replacement

Have a vehicle lift?Easiest way.Have to drain tank,disconnect wiring at tank, remove fill timber,disconnect emission tubes on both sides of car by frame rails,disconnect tank straps and lower gas tank out of car. When reinstalling tank,start the studs for the fuel tank straps by only a few threads so you'll be able to start the nuts when putting the straps back on. Replacing the pump with the tank out is easy. Take the 6 bolts that hold the pump to the tank out,remembering where the outlet on the pump points before removing it from tank. The new pump comes with all new wiring. Just install the new pump and tighten the 6 bolts. Use common sense in tightening them. Having a lift is the easiest way,super dirty,dusty job. Wear safety glasses!

Have the Jeep lifted in the air with all four wheels off the ground. Have the fuel tank emptied using a pump if possible. Place a supportive platform under the tank with a floor jack under the platform. Remove the tank straps holding the tank in.
Lower the tank a few inches so the electrical connectors & fuel lines can be disconnected
Lower the tank and remove from under the Jeep.

Unscrew the retainer at the top of the tank
Remove the sending unit with the pump on it
Reverse to reinstall

I think my fuel pump is going on my 1993 dodge Dakota 4X4 3.9 motor and the fuel pump is in the Gas Tank . Can I put an Electric Fuel Pump out side of the Tank on the fuel line instead of having to drop...

Yes you can install an inline fuel pump but dropping the tank is pretty easy.It'll take you just a few hours at the most( you wont get gas in your face).And it'll be good for another 10-15 years or more.Make sure it's close to empty.If you do install an inline pump put it as close to the tank as possible after the filter.
