No, you must drop the tank. Make sure you test the main relay to make sure it's not the real problem.

Need to see a video on installing in tank fuel pump

Youtube must have thousands of them, well hundreds anyway. Well, a whole lot anyway. One probably like or similar to your '89 model.

Pretty sure you have to drop the tank to replace pump. In later years, makers began putting access panels under the rear seat or trunk area to access the fuel pump assembly, without removing the gas tank.

Why turns over but no spark no fuel?

Broncos are known for bad fuel pumps in the tank. Hopefully you do not have a full tank of fuel and will be able to drop the tank fairly easily. Please use a jack when lowering the tank as someone could get hurt. I myself cut a door in the floor of the cargo area to access the fuel pump without having to drop the tank you will see once dropping the tanks how this could definitely come in handy in your near future.

I have a 94 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 5.9L With a bad fuel pump. What I would like to know is how to release the fuel pressure in the line before removing the fuel pump. Also do I have to drop the fuel tank to...

Well I released my pressure by pushing in the valve near the injectors under the hood. Make sure your engine is cold when doing this. Only a quick spray then its relieved. I unbolted my bed and jacked it about 5 inches and was able to change my 94 ram fuel pump. Pretty easy this way as those straps may need to be eplaced if removed. I did this 2 years ago. Maybe to an hour or 2. But if your truck has been sitting yow may want to drop the tank to clean it out.

Fuel pump recplacement

you'll have to drop your fuel tank most likely. best to buy a chilton or a haynes manual for that unless your pretty mechanically inclined. usually there are fuel lines, at least one wire plug, and at least 2 straps that have to be undone before lowering it completely.

Do you have to drop the fuel tank to change the fuel pump?

IN most veihicles the fuel pump is on top of the fuel tank so yes you have to drop the tank. I have seen my friend cut hole in the floor board and tank the fuel pump out that way but im sure you dont want to do it that way.

I'm told my dad's car 1994 pontiac grand am needs a new fuel pump. where is it located? under the back seat or within the gas tank?

Hi, the fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and to get to it you have to lower the fuel tank from the car, make sure you have used all the fuel up as it will be to heavy to handle if the fuel is left in it,
you need to make sure the car is high enough off the floor to get the fuel tank lowered enough to get the tank lowered.

if your doing this yourself then make sure you have some good axle stands to put the car on before you do any work under neath,

check under the back seat to see if their is an access panel to the tank but im pretty sure their isnt check first just in case im wrong but from what i remember you need to lower the tank down to get to the pump.

Can you access the fuel pump without removing tank? Im not getting fuel to the carb. I checked the lines to the fuel filter to carb and from fuel filter to the tank and seems clear. The only thing I can...

If you have a carburetor, you have a mechanical fuel pump on the engine. If you have a throttle body injection your pump is in the tank and the tank needs to be removed to get at it. Before dropping tank make sure the pump is getting power and a good ground.
