Location of fuel pump

Until 1987 the fuel pumps were located under the left rear of the vehicle Starting in 1989, it is inside the fuel tank. You can access it without removing the fuel rank via an access panel inside the rear cargo or passenger area. You have to remove the rear seat to gain access to the panel.

Fuel pump access for 2001 tiburon,under back seat or drop gas tank?

Go to and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, campaigns, illustrations and procedures, etc.

Go to Fuel Pump (FP) under Shop Manual. Illustration shows access place under rear seat bottom. Removed Rear Seat Bottom... you'll see floor access plate ... remove plate to access fuel pump.

Im just trying to find out where the fuel pump location is to change it. i know its located in the tank but i need to know how to get to it? is it under the rear seats? or under the car? Thank you very...

On some vehicles there is a small plate under the back seat that allows you to get to the pump and replace it. If not you are going to have to drop the tank out to get a new fuel pump in. Its not a hard job if you take your time and have a friend help lower the tank if needed.Damn things a heavy and awkward with fuel in them. Good luck.

2002 Xterra fuel pump replacement

No, like others said, there's an access plate under the rear seats. Most imports (Honda, Toyota, Nissan) have this access plate to get to the pump. Some domestics don't (90's Camaros etc)

Fuel pump

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank. There is an access port that resides under the back seat (drivers side). It can be use to replace and inspect the fuel gauge sensor. You can replace the fuel pump through this access port. To access the port.."flip the rear seat cushion up and forward, then remove the inspection hole cover." Before disconnecting the fuel lines you can remove the fuel pump relay or the fuel pump fuse and run the engine till it dies. Then crank the engine a few times to release any pressure in the lines. You can test the physical function of the fuel pump by attaching a fuel pressure gauge to the front fuel line under the hood.Turn the key on but don't start the engine and the fuel pressure should rise to 40lbs. Start the engine and let it idle, there the fuel pressure gauge should read 35 give or take a few pounds. As you rev the engine the pressure should fluctuate between 30 and 45. If this all works as such then the fuel pump and pressure regulator are good. You can also apply an Ohms meter across the fuel pump leads and test the electronics of the pump. Should be .2 to 5.0 Ohms
