  • Position your vehicle over a hoist or rasie it up with a floor jack and support it with jack stands and relieve the fuel system pressure. Drain the tank by loosening the clamp and removing the fill hose. Unplug the fuel pump's electrical connection and disconnect the evaporative emissions lines and the fuel lines. Support the fuel tank with a hydraulic jack and remove the bolts on the fuel tank so you can lower the fuel tank. Remove the lock ring on the fuel pump using tool 9340 with a ½ inch drive breaker bar to rotate the lock ring counter-clockwise. The fuel pump should rise up slightly when you remove the lock ring. Remove the fuel pump using care not to bend the float arm. Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit, especially the rubber gasket for the fuel tank. Rotate the fuel pump until the alignment arrow points toward the alignment mark. Be sure the fitting on top of the fuel pump faces towards the driver's side. Tighten the lock ring with tool 9340 until all seven notches engage. Complete the installation by reversing the removal procedure

    No simple diagram for changing the fuel pump. It is located inside the gas tank. The gas tank needs to be removed to change the pump. The pump is part of an assembly which consists of the pump, fuel gauge sender and pick up. You also need to change the fuel filter when you change the pump. It should take a professional mechanic about 3 hours to drain the fuel out of the tank, remove the tank, change the pump and fuel filter. Multiple the mechanic's time by whatever the repair shop charges per hour for labor. There are several different pump assemblies for the vehicle. Price depends on whether it's 2 or 4 doors and 2 or 4 wheel drive. Best guess is about $600 total.

    Car is not getting gas to motor even after new fuel filter is installed

    If you change the fuel filter and still not getting fuel to the engine, then the other possible problems are:
    - Clogged fuel lines due to 'dirty' fuel.
    - Defective Fuel Pump which may not provide enough pressure to 'push' the fuel pass your new filter.

    Hope it helps.

    No power to fuel pump

    What you need to do is drop the fuel tank and put a new fuel pump in it. I would drain the gas and put new gas in after you get the pump changed.

    Help w 1994 chevrolet truck

    This injector set-up needs a specific fuel pressure supplied to the fuel rail to even start, much less run properly. The fuel pump is immersed in fuel inside the gas tank to keep it cool and not burn up. Running the fuel level low causes more heat in the pump and interuptions in proper fuel pressure. AC/Delco pumps have proven to be a reliable fix, the aftermarket pumps only last for a month or two sometimes. Check fuel pressure under the hood and power and ground to fuel pump at electrical harness at top of gas tank. This truck needs a fuel pump.
