In the gas tank on the top of the tank, you will need to drop the tank, of course make sure it is empty. To see if it is pumping fuel you can disconnect it from the fuel filter and have some one crank it to see if it is pumping fuel, if it is then hook it back up to the filter and disconnect on the other side to see if it is coming through the filter. Hope this helped Tim

Sorry, if this is a silly question, but is a new Fuel Filter installed automatically/come with a new Fuel Pump? Or do you have to buy a new Fuel Filter and attach to the new Fuel Pump before installin

Has the filter ever been changed? Need to know year and model of the truck. Fuel filters can be near the tank or under the hood. Filters are usually separate from the fuel pump.

Fuel pump needs to be replaces on 2000 Chevrolet suburban, do I also need a new filter, relay and induction?

Do you know for sure that the fuel pump failed or do you have a bad relay? If the fuel pump relay is good no you don't need to replace it. The fuel pump unit comes with the sending unit and a sock filter. I would replace the inline fuel filter when you replace the pump. In line fuel filters need to be replaced every 36000 miles. If that filter starts to plug up it makes the pump work harder which leads to premature failure.

I have a Ford Escort 1992 RS2000 Mk 5, does anyone know how the fuel pump works please ?

Fuel pump runs for 2 seconds when key is turned on when the engine starts it continues to keep pressure at 30 PSI while engine is running, If you are going up hill the fuel regulator will kick in increasing fuel rail pressure to 60 PSI If the Fuel Pump does not detect the engine running by th cam shaft or crank shaft sensor the pump will not run. There is a fuel sock on the pump and a fuel filter as well. If it's not running most likely the Fuel Pump Is bad, The ethanol in the fuel eats the old pumps up and destroys the filter. So if you have not replaced the filter or the fuel sock then it's time to do so now. If you want more information let me know and I will give you more.

Fuel pump or filter

As a general rule , filters should be replaced once a year. If in doubt replace the filter, it probably needs it anyhow. the pump can be scoped and the pressure tested and the general health determined.

Fuel pump/filter?

I would lean towards the pump. Some fuel pumps can be expensive, and it can be dangerous to work on fuel tanks, make sure your fuel tank is empty if you are going to remove it (they are deceivingly heavy)

from the description you gave, I would say your fuel pump is dying, and starting to fail. The whining noise is it struggling to do its job. You might find someone that can service the fuel pump (clean it, inspect it, fix worn out components and contacts, otherwise get it replaced.

My recommendation: Get a service technician (aka Mechanic) to take a look and ensure it is the fuel pump that has failed before you go buy a new one (because it may be a couple hundred dollars).
I hope this helps, Let me know what you find out.

PS - If you have never replaced the fuel filter, do it, they are rather cheap and easy to replace.

Fuel pump squeaking, filter resticted or pump failing?

Yes, it could be the fuel filter, but the pump may be on the way out also. Change the filter first. I have seen the pump get replaced and a noise still exists. It usually caused by the fuel filter.
