SOURCE: my car needs a fuel pump,I was told to just replace the fuel tank

Your pump is not compatible with the supercharger pump. The pressure rates are much high for a supercharged engine. Your normally aspirated engine requires less fuel, thus, a smaller capacity pump.

You may want to check under the rear seat to see if there is an access hatch to remove the fuel pump/sending assembly. Then dropping the tank would not be an issue.

I would not suggest putting a used fuel pump into any vehicle. A new one should be available for 50-100 dollars. Also replace the strainer at the base of the fuel pump when you replace the pump.

SOURCE: I think my fuel pump is going on my 1993 dodge

If you have 3 strong friends it is easier to pull the box off the truck-20 minutes- can do with full tank. Don't forget to unhook the taillight wires and the fuel filler neck. When you go back on make sure the tube for the spare tire winch is positioned correctly. Have saw horses to set the box on behind the truck. Be sure to buy the complete fuel pump module. If you buy just the pump you will be doing this multiple times. Also, if your fuel guage does'nt work, put a new fuel sender in at the same time (if the module does'nt come with it).

SOURCE: how do you bypass the security system in a 96

You cannot draw fuel through the old pump. If you want to convert to external pump, you will have to install a new take-up in the tank.

For passkey II, the procedure at works to bypass the ignition switch, but it will not bypass the whole system.

Please let me know if you have more questions.

Can an inline fuel pump be used to replace in tsnk fuel pump on a 1998 Murcury Sable?

In tank fuel pumps do most of the work. Some cars have an in-tank pump which lifts the fuel out of the tank and pushes it into the fuel line - where an inline pump then pushes the fuel up to the engine.

It's usually the in-tank pump that fails because it does most of the

Broadly speaking, there's 2 types of fuel pumps .. lifters and pushers.

I would hazard a guess that if a 'pusher' pump was strong enough you could use it instead of an in-tank pump.

Defective fuel pump. Should I replace it or install an external one?

Steve, isn't that a better way just to buy a new pump on eBay and replace it DYI? It'll not be $225 - that's the price mechanic told you (included his work of 2 hours = $170)

Where is the fuel pump located on a 2001 Dodge Neon?

The 2001 Dodge Neon is one of the many vehicles that has the fuel pump installed within a special module mounted inside the fuel tank. If you need to change the fuel pump, you will need to remove the fuel tank to reach the pump module. While the individual components of the module can be replaced, the recommended procedure is to change the module as a whole. Disconnecting and transferring the fuel sending unit to a new pump requires you to remove terminals on the electrical connectors. which is a job that amateurs should probably avoid. The brain trust from Detroit, instead of using a lot of common sense and placing it in the engine compartment where it could be gotten at easily, decided to put it in the tank. That way before replacing same you have to drain the tank, remove the tank and replace the unit. Then reinstall the tank and since you have it off, why not replace the straps also. This way it costs about $400 instead if the old $75 or so.

In-the-tank fuel pump r&r

Here are instructions for replacment with a diagram of the fuel pump components my only suggestion would be instead of draining the tank and dropping the fuel tank if you unbolt the box and using a jack and and some wood lift the fuel tank side of the box this will give you access to the tank and fuel pump/ sending unit. It will save you time and the hastle of replacing the tank straps which are prone to snapping at the threads when trying to remove the nuts.If these brake you will have to replace them.
