There is an access panel under the back seat on the passenger side. So you do not have to drop the gas tank. You can attain one at any reliable auto parts store. To access this -

  1. Remove the positive battery cable and set it off so it will not touch the positive battery cable.
  2. Remove the bottom of the back seat on the passenger side. It will pull out but there may be two to four bolts to remove first.
  3. Remove the little foil looking item and you will see an access panel.
  4. There may be a tared on panel you need to pry up first (use a flathead screwdriver). ***note not all makes have this panel.***
  5. Once you get that off then remove the bolts holding the access panel on.
  6. Now there will be some hose that need to be very carefully removed.
  7. Remove the three hoses buy grasping the side of the connector releasing the clamp and pull the hose out. Not to far but just enough to separate it from the pump. Be careful, if you break the clamp holding the hose in place you will ruin the pump.
  8. Now remove the remove harness connector.
  9. Now take a flat head screw driver and with a hammer tap that metal safety lock plate counter clockwise till it comes loose and can be pulled up.
  10. Now pull up the fuel filter/fuel sending unit.
  11. Replace.
  12. Reverse the steps above.
  13. Job completed.
Regards, Tony

Have 95 geo prizm with no fuel pump relays and fuses are good. when i jump the relay i can hear the pump work.. is there any other sensors that would cause the pump not to work

The oil pressure sending unit will stop the pump from running. This cuts the car off if it senses no oil pressure. Same sensor that gives you the pressure reading or the dummy light.

I have a 1991 geo metro. when i have a full tank of gas, the fuel gauge hand shows only half full. What causes this to happen?

The floater gauge is sticking. This is part of the fuel sending unit which has your fuel pump connected to it. Try using a fuel additive like seafoam or chevron techron to see if it frees it up, if not the unit will need to be replaced.

1994 Geo Prizm 1.6L engine. When it is hot outside or when making a left hand turn the car begins to "buck". Have replaced the fuel filter fuel sending unit spark plugs plug wires distributor cap and rotor...

Have your temperature sending unit tested for proper activation. Computer will tell the engine to go into cold start mode when cold. If the temp sending unit is faulty, it will not come out of cold start mode and is still dumping excess fuel into the engine causing it to flood with fuel and causing an overly rich condition and it just won't run right like that.
