You need to drop the tank to get to the fuel pump-remove the filler neck first, then the straps-have a jack under the tank, remove the strap bolts and lower the tank (good to have help here), then you can disconnect the hoses and the electrical harness. the vehicle does not have to be raised to get the tank out, but it is a tight fit getting it out. there is a large plastic ring that holds the fuel pump in the tank, it needs to be tapped in a counterclockwise direction to get the pump and sender out, remove it carefully so as not to damage the sender unit. as a little extra bonus, if you want to have a higher capacity tank, there is a plastic tube located in the tank where the filler goes, just cut about 5-6 inches off it (it's plastic, use a razor blade) from the inside, the hole from the fuel pump gives enough room to do this. this is just a physical job, not hard to do just requires a little determination. make sure when you install the new pump it is sealed tight, install a new gasket when you do this swap.

How To Drain Fuel Tank On 2005 Jeep Liberty Gas Tank

same as most cars like this....
the FSM book covers that.
it says to use drain a hose on the filler hose. (most cars)
and use siphon hose, or hand pump to hand pump it dry.

the dealer has 2 ways, using their scan tool , they open the system and turn on the fuel pump until dry. (fuel hoses to a bucket? after depressurizing steps, in the FSM stated.)
or they use a PRO grade, fuel draining system. that does this.

at home, you have 2 choices. a hose with siphon hose bulb.
or hot wire the pump. (risky making sparks with fuel; no?)

How do you remove the fuel pump on a 1990 Chevy Lumina APV?

The fuel pump is in the gas tank. Drive off or siphon out as much gas as you can. You will need to remove the filler hose. Drop the tank and remove the fuel lines on the top of the tank, Turn the ring counter clock wise that holds the siphon and pump in. Once the ring is loose, lift the the siphon and pump assembly out of the tank. The pump is on the bottom of the siphon. Replace, then reverse the process.

This is very easy you first need to disconnect the battery. remove as much fuel as you can from the fuel tank. you will need help to lower the tank down to a little to remove the fuel hoses and wires. after you have the tank on the ground take a screw driver and small hammer to remove the fuel sending unit locking ring. remove the sending unit be carefull not to bend the float remove the pump and reverse the same process

1994 Jeep Wrangler hard to keep running

The fuel pump is located in the gas tank and the filter is right in front of the tank on the inside of the frame. I have never worked on that particular throttle body, but if it has a throttle position sensor, that could be what your problem is.

How to replace a jeep tj fuel tank?

I would be really careful with doing this repair as this is very dangerous. You need to relieve the fuel pressure by pulling the fuel pump fuse and starting the truck. Drain the tank with a siphon pump. Remove any exhaust or other parts that are in the way, loosen the straps and support the tank with a floor jack and a block of wood. There are several hoses, and a few wire connectors to disconnect and you may want to replace those hoses while you're down there. Once you put the new tank in, reconnect the electrical and hoses, raise the tank and strap it back up. Put anything else back together you took off the truck.
Personally, I would take this in to get fixed as this is dangerous work (I did mention that). I you do this anyway, use your head and buy a proper container to hold the gas in , as well as jackstands and a class "B" fire extinguisher. Disconnect the battery and don't smoke or use a drop light under the car, and I will not accept responsibility for this.
