looks like the fuel pump and sender is on fitted top of the fuel tank
under the car
if so tank has to be removed completely

lots of work
better to budget for a new fuel pump

if you cant hear the fuel pump

with care
drop off the fuel filter line or
drop off the fuel line to the injector rail
and see if fuel gets pumped while you crank
paper clip wire the relay positive and negative pins only
or change relay

if you can hear the relay click

Trying to determine how to access the fuel pump in 2004 Jetta to replace it. Do you have to drop the tank or is there access through the vehicle elsewhere? I am unable to locate this information, other...

The pumps are installed inside your fuel tank; since liquid fuel cannot blow up, this is the best location for installation. In order to replace it you must drop the tank and get at the pump from the top. I would check fuse #28, which is the fuse to the fuel pump relay before pulling the pump. Otherwise, you would be wise to consider the amount of work involved in dropping the tank. It requires removing the bolts from the straps, pulling the fuel lines, removing the gas inlet, removing the connectors and then you get to the pump. Let me know if you want to go this route and I will do my best to give you step by step direction to remove the pump.

Do you have to drain and drop the fuel tank on a 2005 Nissan Altima in order to change the fuel pump? Also where are the crankshaft sensor and the fuel pump relay located. Thank you for your help.

yes you have to drop tank to replace fuel pump and filter as it is one unit pretty easy though.

crankshaft sensor is either under the harmonic balancer pully or bolted to block facing it you normally have to pull pully to change sensor but some you dont you will need a puller and a installer if you have to pull the pully

relay should be under the hood in relay area

if this was helpful please give me a good rating

Where is the fuel pump?

the fuel pump is located inside the gas tank. under the hood in black box[main fuse and relay panel] before you replace the pump, i suggest that you check fuel pump relay. or have you been hit from rear? you may need to reset the fuel pump shut off switch. you will find the reset switch in rear of car, look for a pop out panel on the left hand side when you open the trunk. push the switch in [like a reset switch for old t.v. push it in and then try to start the car before you replace the fuel pump please! but if you know for sure that the fuel pumps bad, drain all the gas out before dropping the gas tank. this will save you alot of trouble. also disconnect the positive cable from battery before you do anything!!!!!! hope this helps, merry christmas. and as always,if you need further assistance, please repost your question and an expert will be happy to assist.

Need to know location of fuel pump relay on a Mazda mpv 3.0l v6 1997 model

The pump is in the tank. Before you consider dropping the tank. Lift the carpet in the back seat above the tank. The older MPVs had a trap door which would access the pump with out dropping the tank. It is definitely worth a look. I changed mine in half an hour.

No fuel pressure on fuel rail, no hum sound when key turned on. Any easy access to pump other than dropping tank?

First thing is to replace the fuel pump relay.
This should fix the problem
If the relay test is fine, then the next step would be testing all the current flow with voltmeter and test power to pump and relay.

you can try just resetting the fuel pump switch located in the car

the switch is originally in the car for in case of an accident, however, if changed, chances are you also have to reset it

in my 98 grand marquis, the switch is on the left side of the trunk

There is no access from under the back seat on your particular model. You are going to have to drop the gas tank to get to it. The nice thing is that the Honda's come with a fuel drain which you will see when you get under there. Drain the fuel and then you will have to drop the tank and have somebod hold the tank while you get up into the fuel pump area. The problem is probably not your fuel pump though, they do not go bad very often on these cars. I thought mine was bad until I hooked up direct power from the battery and it worked. Try replacing the main relay under the driver's side dash it is underneath a silver box which controls your cruise control. The relay will say MAIN with 12V underneat it. It is brown and grey. Hope this helps
