Question about Nissan Murano

1 Answer

I need to replace two under carriage plastic 'bolts' that hold the fuel tank plastic protector in place. It appears they simply push in 'one way' to hold the plastic shroud in place. Any thoughts on how to purchase.

The gas tank protector is held by 2 clips and 10mm nut. Clips are push in style. You can unlock the clip, by pulling the middle of the clip up. Kinda hard to do without a special tool. The clips are available at Nissan dealer, for about $3 a piece.

Removing fuel tank

Two steps:
1) Inside the car under the rear seats there is a carpet flap that needs to be lifted, under it you will find a plastic lid. Remove the plastic lid under which you will find the fuel lines and electrical cables for the fuel pump and fuel gauge, remove all. Noting exactly which fuel line went where. You will have to remove all the fuel in the tank. Siphon it off or if only a little is left you can do it in the next stage.
2) Jack up car at the rear on both sides. The fuel tank is held by two metal straps that can be released with two bolts. Losen bolts without removing them completely then loosen all hoses and check that the tank is empty. If it is empty place jack under the tank (with wood to spread the load) and take the weight then remove the bolts so that the straps are free. Slowly let the tank down.

Charger fuel pump

If fuel pump is located in the gas tank the first thing you wanna do is disconnect battery. place jack under tank as not to damage it , I always place a board between jack and tank to protect from any damage. remove bolts frome bands that are holding tank inplace or in some cases bolts from tank. After this slowly lower tank with jack but only far enough so you can unhook the lines and hoses connected to the tank. After this lower tank all the way down and pull it from under the car. Be sure to clean plate on top ,i always use stiff brush and air hose. This insures that no dirt gets into tank while replacing pump. You will have to remove ring around top plate or in some cases small bolts around plate. Simply pull pump up out of tank but make sure not to bend float sensor which is what tells how much gas is in tank. If bent it will cause your gas gauge to read incorrect. Sometimes take a little moving around to get it out but you can do it. Remove filter and pump from braket and replace and reinstall. Be sure to raise tank up with jack some before trying to replace lines. Attach all lines and hoses and tank and you are done....Remember to hook battery back up after you are done with installing the tank. Turn key on and wait a few seconds for fuel pressure to build up and start it up. Hey you did it..........

I know it can be a bear if the bolts and pins are rusted. Unless the new straps are OEM, some after market straps don't fit quite as well and you need Godzilla strength to manover them into place to get them pinned and bolted back up.
You shouldn't have to drop the tank as long as you do the straps one at a time. Get a floor jack, transmission jack or even a motorcycle jack and place wood under the gas tank and do one strap at a time. I used a second jack to help push the strap in place so I could push it into place on a 97 Dakota. Good luck and sometimes it goes smooth but, some times it makes a preacher say things they wouldn't say in church. :)

I need the location on where the fuel filter is located on a 1998 dodge caravan sport 3.3L flex fuel.

I believe the fuel filter is under the vehicle and over the fuel tank. You'll have to drop the tank to access the filter. Loosen the nut on both ends of the filter and gently seperate. Replace new filter and retighten the nuts. Secure the tank back.

Put a jack (for a flat tire) under the fuel tank, so you could control how far it dropped. Then remove the two screws that hold the fuel tank straps. The screws come out, the fuel tank is loose, lower the tank by lowering the jack. Now it is easy to reach the filter. One screw holds it in place. Unscrew it, it comes right out. The tricky part is figuring out how to unplug the fuel lines. Look at the replacement filter, note how the plastic piece inside each fuel line has to be squeezed to remove it. You need to squeeze the old ones the same way to release them. It isn't easy. Squeeze the plastic piece that is holding the hose in place until you can work it out. A few drops of gas will dribble out. The gas is NOT pressurized. Unsnap the old hoses, snap in the new ones (much easier). Screw the new filter into place. Jack the fuel tank back into place. Screw the straps back on. Clip the ground strap in place where the old one was. You're done.

Fuel pump removal 96 nissan quest

Replace Fuel Pump for 1997 Nissan Quest

(1) If the fuel tank has more than one third full, you need to get the gasoline out. If it has one third or less full, you can leave it in the tank. However be very careful around the working area. Make sure you have read fire precautions in a general repair book. Take the fuel pump fuse out from the fuse box near the battery. Run starter for a few seconds. This will remove the fuel pressure in the gas lines. Disconnect battery at negative terminal. Jack up the rear of the van.

(2) Remove the fuel tank protector.

(3) Disconnect fuel pipes at the front end of the fuel tank. Use short pencils and extra rubber hoses to block disconnected pipes and hoses.
59aa089.jpg There are two pipes connected to the gasoline filler at the side of the van. Disconnect only the smaller one. The larger one is flex enough for the tank to be lowered.

(4) Disconnect the electrical from this connector. Jack the rear end of the fuel tank with a car jack and a piece of 2x4. Put the wood between the jack point and the tank. Then unbolt the two bolts showing in the picture.
(5) Lower the jack after the bolts are removed. The rear end of the tank should be lowered.


(6) Disconnect fuel lines on top of the fuel pump. Reconnect each short hose back to different pipes as shown in picture to block the pipes.
(7) Loose the six mounting bolts on the fuel pump assembly. The bolts should be loosen a little at a time in multiple turns. Also detach the electrical wire holders. After all bolts are removed, carefully take the assembly out of the tank.

(8) Remove the fuel pump from the assembly as shown in picture. Then unplug the electrical wires. Note that two connectors are in different sizes, so that you will not be able to reconnect to a wrong terminal.
(9) Put the new pump and new filter in. Reconnect the electrical wires. If necessary use a pair of pliers to make the connectors tighter. Make sure they are not loose. Reconnect gas inlet to the pressure regulator.
(10) Use a new O ring, put back the assembly to the fuel tank. Make sure the float of the fuel level senser is free, and the assembly is at the right orientation (as shown in picture). Screw back the 6 bolts after making sure the O ring is in right place. The bolts should be tightened in turns. Do not over tighten them. Then reconnect the fuel lines and make sure every fastener is tight. Put the electrical wire into holders.
(11) Jack up the tank and put the two mounting bolt in. (see picture in step 4). Make sure they are tightened with specific torque. Reconnect the electrical connector.

(12) Reconnect two fuel lines at the front side of the tank. Refer to the picture in step 2. Reconnect the hose to the gasoline filler. Before you have a try start, double check if all fuel lines are securely connected and tightened.

(13) Start the engine. You need to crank more than a normal start because the lines were empty. The pressure is built up in some time.

(14) If engine starts ok, turn it off. Then check under the van if there is any leakage. If everything is fine put back the tank protector. (picture in step 2).
