Where is the fuel pressure sensor located on a 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 4X4?


The fuel tank pressure sensor on a 1999 GMC Sierra is located on the top of the fuel tank on the fuel pump itself. Most say that you need to drop the fuel tank to replace it but if you have access to a lift you can replace it without removing the fuel tank. By removing the rear U joint straps and moving the driveshaft to the side you can see and access the sensor for replacement. Chock wheels to prevent movement of the vehicle after driveshaft is disconnected.

Can you replace an inline fuel filter without replacing the whole gas tank?


the in-line filter is in the fuel line between the tank and the engine, seldom do you have to even touch the tank much less remove it in order to replace that filter. there is a screen on the pump inlet of the
in-tank fuel pump and most likely you are going to have to drop the tank in order to replace the pump or the fuel level sender. make sure there is not a service access hole in the rear of the car such as under the spare tire which could give you access to the top of the tank. on the other hand it is not unusual to find yourself in a situation where a lot of the fuel line must be replaced when you replace the in-line filter. as such you may find yourself with no room to connect the new fuel line to the nipple on top of the tank, without lowering the tank a bit.

How do I remove fuel pump from dodge 1998 1500


An easier way you may want to consider is removing the bed of the truck. There is only 6 bolts from underneath.2 in the front and 4 in the rear then just remove fuel cap and fuel neck screws and unplug tail light plugs on both sides.

1995 dual tank fuel transfer problem \truck runs properly only on front tank. When set on front tank rear tank over fills.


There was a fuel line check valve recall on these back in the day. It should have exterior check valves between each line and the fuel pump/ sending unit inlets and outlets. You will have to be looking right at each fuel pump assembly to see if these are installed. Someone may have replaced a pump without reinstalling the check valves. If the connection to the fuel pumps looks the same as the ones on the filter (left side of frame under driver's seat), there is not a check valve installed. It will be an obvious extra fitting between 2 and 3 inches long. Otherwise, you will have to replace the rear fuel pump/sending unit as an assembly. I believe that is the only (and best) way to buy and install it. You can drop the tank, but it's sometimes easier to take out the carriage bolts in the box and raise it for easier access to the fuel pumps. The filler tubes have to be disconnected from the box, as well as the light wiring.

Need to install fuel pump in 1991 pontiac firebird


Sorry. Got to drop the tank. Just break the gas tank bolts and replace them with new ones. If the straps are badly rusted, replace them, too. Look for tank leaks on the top of the tank. Replace the sock on the fuel pump.
