You are on right track unfortunately I am a little fuzzy it has been a year .1) You must have a star set for your ratchet the bed bolts will be difficult to remove, treat with nut loosen-er first. Good to have clean bed and if you have bed liner you must remove. I have cheap liner I was able to pry it out. Before removing bed you must remove tailgate and unplug electrical connections to taiI lights and hitch if you have 1. 2) Open fuel filler door(s) and remove three screws holding filler pipe(s) to body side.
3) You should be able to slide bed back with out removing. Good to have help but I did it alone. 4) You can now access the other end of the fill hose. 5) remove it and there is a breather tube as well.
6) I was able to thread this in without dropping tank. Plan b is to lower tank a bit. I would support tank with hydraulic jack with large block to distribute weight across tank. Also place blocks to prevent tank from dropping too far. Ok it is all down hill from here do everything in reverse now. Good luck

SOURCE: need to replace upper left ball joint on a 2001

You will need to replace the control arm with the ball joint since it is not sold separately. If one is found it will be a foreign made piece of junk and not worth using. They are weak and break

SOURCE: 1989 ford ranger automatic transmission

Your truck has a A4LD transmission. The older ones had major problems. What i believe is happening with yours is the converter is locking up intermittently. 1st-4th are actual gears for 5th(overdrive) the converter locks. I had the same problem as well as did alot of people I spoke with. I solved it by getting a used A4LD out of a '92 ranger with a 3.0L motor (these transmissions had some upgrades to deal with a number of problems including the one you are talking about.) You will need to swap bell-housings (this requires the pump to be shimmed properly,I paid a shop $100 to install the pump ,with is attached to the back of the bell-housing) There are only 2 kinds of A4LD one for floor shift and 1 for column shift,make sure you get the right one.Good luck.

How to remove gas tank from 1991 chevy 1500 4x4 how to remove the straps

It is easier to take the bed loose and pick up the bed. there is 8 bolts and the gas filler neck too take loose.first you open up the gas door, and around the gas cap there will be 3 7mm screws then under the truck the 15mm bolts are on top half of the frame.these bolts are spaced from front to rear on bo th sides of the bed.then look at the rear of the truck, behind the bumper. you will find a plug that goes to the taillamps. unplug that connector .4 or 5 guys move can pick that bed up and just move it backwards,over the tires.if you dont have the manpower then take a big floor jack and position a 4x4 about 1/ 1/2 ft long. stand the 4x4on the jack saddle, and jack up the close attention to the gas filler neck and other things, while going up. just go slow, up and down. you will need someone to watch the filler neck when you go back down

How does one replace the fuel filter on a 1998 Buick century? What degree of difficulty is it for a non mechanic ( but has some experience w/ basic car maintenance)?

The fuel filter is under car by gas tank. Use ramps or jack up car and support it good.
Loosen gas cap to relieve any pressure in system.
Twist the connector 1/4 turn in either direction to loosen any debris. Squeeze the plastic tabs on the end of the connector and pull the connector apart. Repeat for the other connector.(some models might have a screw in connector on one side) you will need a couple of wrenches.
Remove filter mounting bolt, unhook the tab from the receptacle in the frame and remove filter. Installation is just reverse.
snap the connector back on and pull to make sure it connected. You will need a drip pan to catch the fuel when you dsconnect the lines and what's in the filter.

How do I remove step by step the gas tank of a 1992 Ford Ranger XLT 4x2 xtra cab Auto 4.l

If you are needing to remove the gas tank to replace it, then you will need to empty the tank if you are able. You can buy a pump to siphon the gas for about ten dollars. Put a jack under the tank and jack it up to the tank just enough to barely put pressure on it. After that unbolt the two straps that hold it up. Remove the straps and slowly let the tank down. Try your best not to break the gas lines. Let it down far enough to see the gas pump. If it has a metal ring with little tabs on top of the pump. Take a hammer and a screwdriver and carefully tap on the tabs of the ring and move it until it releases the pump. If it is a snap ring holding the pump it, you will have to buy a special pair of pliers to get it out. A snap ring looks like a washer that has one gap in it, with two little holes on either side of the gap. If you are only wanting to remove the fuel pump, it is actually easier to remove the bed. To do that, undo the taillights and pull the wires through the bottom of the bed, and undo all of the bolts holding the bed down. If you do have to remove the tank, removing the bed will still make it easier, as well as greatly reducing the change of breaking a fuel line. good luck!

2001 Silverado fuel pump

I just did mine and lifted the bed on the drivers side. I used a 30" 4X4 and a 24" 4X4 with a blot pounded into the end and head cutoff. This engauges into a hole in the cross member infront of the wheel. A hydraulic jack and 2X6X6 blocks to jack the bed up. Taking off the wheel makes it easier. Make sure you only loosen the passengers side bolts (4 on short bed).

How do i change the gas filter in my 93 lincoln continental

Your Lincoln has the fuel injected engine. Jack up and support the vehicle. Relieve the pressure of the fuel line by removing the gas cap and also depress the schrader valve on the fuel rail. Be very carefull as to not spill gas on a hot surface. Make sure the vehicle is cooled down. The fuel filter is located in line on the frame rail. Most of the Lincolns have a threaded fitting and a push on fitting. Put a pan under the filter to catch the fuel. On the push on fittin, push in on the line and remove the clip. I use a pair of neddle nose pliers to remove them. Use wrenches on the other end, 5/8 and 3/4". There is a band clamp that needs to be removed and then the filter comes off. Reverse the procedure to install the new filter.
Thanks and rate me highly;

Fuel gauge stopped working

Can't say for sure since you did not include year of your car but more than likely it's the fuel sending unit that requires replacement. Some years you can replace just the level sensor on the fuel sending unit but both repairs involve dropping the gas tank and opening to remove the fuel sending unit.
