How to replace fuel pump and fuel filter ?

the fuel pump is in your gas tank. make sure all of or most of the gas is out before you drop the tank. the tank is held on by two straps. once you drop it you will have to disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connections to completely separate it from the vehicle. the fuel filter is simple and is held on by two bolts. just follow your fuel line from your fuel pump and you'll find it. make sure to depressurize the fuel system before changing the filter. also make sure your battery is disconnected before changing the fuel pump.

How do i go about dropping the gas tank to change the fuel filter on my cadillac brougham?

The fuel filter is located on the drivers side of the car about halfway between the front and back wheel. Look just underneath the doors and follow the fuel line until you run into the filter.

You just need a couple of crescent wrenches to remove it. While you have the fuel filter off, turn the ignition on but dont crank the car then have a look to see if any fuel sprayed out.
Put a rubber hose over the end going into some kind of container if you want to be neat about it. Just to be sure the fuel pump is working.

Car stops running wait n starts up only to repeat.. tried to change fuel filter... Cant find it

If you have traced the fuel lines between the tank and the engine and haven't seen it, you have to drop the tank. Is some dodges you have to drop the tank and replace the fuel filter. Sometimes they don't sell the filter you have to buy the whole pump. hope this helps

Shop manual for 2005 Santa Fe 3.5L shows a fuel pump filter in the tank & a standard cylindrical fuel filter outside the tank. Manual states change the "fuel filter" at 45000 mi. Can't find outside...

Change to Exterior filter not the tank filter. The in tank filter is actually a sock located on the Fuel Pump in the tank. This is rarely a problem. The exterior filter is going to be in-line most likely on the passenger side of the vehicle toward the rear. Easiest way to locate it is to trace the fuel lines back tot eh front of the vehicle from the fuel tank.

Need to know location of fuel pump in a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The fuel pump will be located inside your gas tank which will require you to remove the straps and to drop the tank down... The filter depending on the car, will either be inside the fuel tank, or outside of it near the front of the tank.

Other issues that may cause bad idling would be a bad TPS or EGR

Need to determine where the fuel filter is located. Also, how to get to and possibly replace the fuel pump.

To remove the fuel pump, you need to either drop the fuel tank or remove the bed. The pump is in the fuel tank. Personally, I remove the bed, it is easier than dropping the tank, and, more often than not, the tank bolts breal off, or you damage the metal lines on the sending unit. Fuel filter? I NEVER change them unless the fuel is contaminated. It is in the engine compartment; down low. Note that if you DO change the filter, be prepared to replace your fuel lines. The filter metal and the line metal are slightly dis-similar, and "galding" is always possible. That being said, if you take the filter off of the line, 99 times out of 100 the threads on the line will stay on the filter. Not good.

Low fuel pressure

make sure fuel filters are fresh new and installed correctly this will give bad low preasure
the used pump i wouldnt even deal with i would go out and buy the oem part needed brand new it would be like putting used oil back in my truck for an oil change
what would be the point of oil change if your just going to use old oil
on the chassis there should be a fuel pump
in the gas tank there should be a fuel sending unit with filter on it
change the filter out in tank these get debry clogs from bad cheap gas
this you need to drop tank pull out sending unit with filter and replace most people dont realize this at all that the inside tank has to be serviced on a routine schedule every hundred thousand miles this will keep flow good
