Can I take the fuel pump and filter out of my 2004 Kia Optima clean it and put it back in without damaging it I know you should buy a new one but trying to be cheap


You can, but it is not an easy chore to drop the tank, clean the top of the tank, and remove the retainer ring to access the fuel pump. Only to put it all back together and have to do it again. I would highly suggest installing a new unit if you go thru the effort to get to it.

Need to see a video on installing in tank fuel pump


Youtube must have thousands of them, well hundreds anyway. Well, a whole lot anyway. One probably like or similar to your '89 model.

Pretty sure you have to drop the tank to replace pump. In later years, makers began putting access panels under the rear seat or trunk area to access the fuel pump assembly, without removing the gas tank.

How to replace a 2005 grand am 6 cyclinder fuel pump


You need to drop the fuel tank...pump is inside. remove the screws under the fill neck opening that hold it to the body, disconnect the fuel line connections and harness, remove both straps holding the tank in (support it, if there is fuel inside its very heavy).Remove the fill and vent hose from the tank. Remove the collar that holds the pump in and carefully remove the pump assembly. Carefully replace pump and make sure it goes in without damaging the float arm and points in the same direction the old one did. reverse order...put it back together. It's best to drain tank and clean the inside before putting it back up. NO SMOKING< ELECTRIC TOOLS OR OTHER IGNITION SOURCES WITHIN 75 FEET OF WHERE YOU ARE WORKING!!!

Where is access to fuel pump without dropping gas tank


There is no access other than dropping the fuel tank. On a pickup you can raise the bed but this is not an option for you. It is not a huge deal to drop the tank, however it is difficult to reinstal the lock ring while putting the new pump in.

What is the best way to access the fuel pump to repalce it without adding expenses? They want to cut the floor and do it. Will this cause problems in the winter? We live in Michigan with a lot of deep...


Too bad GM doesnt provide a cover to access tank without dropping the tank. I would think creating this "hole" would be quite the endeavor and done correctly would add quite the additional time and expense. Decline cutting holes and drop the tank in order to service the pump/sender. Any reputable repair firm should or would never recomend this measure in order to access the pump in the fuel tank I would hope....
