http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

i have the KJ pages here. (line # messed up)
Two different procedures may be used to drain fuel
tank: through the fuel fill fitting on tank, or using a
scan tool.
The quickest draining procedure involves removing
the rubber fuel fill hose (7) (Fig. 25) from fuel tank
fitting.
As an alternative procedure, the electric fuel pump
may be activated allowing tank to be drained at fuel
rail connection. Refer to DRB scan tool for fuel pump
activation procedures. Before disconnecting fuel line
at fuel rail, release fuel pressure. Refer to the Fuel
System Pressure Release Procedure for procedures.
Attach end of special test hose tool number 6541,
6539, 6631 or 6923 at fuel rail disconnection (tool
number will depend on model and/or engine application).
Position opposite end of this hose tool to an
approved gasoline draining station. Activate fuel
pump and drain tank until empty.
If electric fuel pump is not operating, fuel must be
drained through fuel fill fitting at tank. Refer to following
procedures.
(1) Release fuel system pressure.
(2) Raise vehicle.
(3) If equipped, remove fuel tank skid plate.
(4) Thoroughly clean area around fuel fill fitting
(6) (Fig. 26) and rubber fuel fill hose (1) at side of
fuel tank. After cleaning, loosen fuel fill hose clamp
(2) at tank.
(5) Before removing rubber hose (1) (Fig. 26) from
fitting, note hose orientation while referring to marks
(3) and (4).
6) Disconnect rubber fuel fill hose at fuel tank fitting
(2) (Fig. 27). Using an approved gas holding
tank, drain fuel tank through this fitting.
Tank Removal
(1) If equipped, remove fuel tank skid plate and
tow hooks. Certain equipment packages will also
require removal of the trailer hitch. Refer to Tow
Hooks, Trailer Hitch or Skid Plate in 23, Body for
removal/installation procedures.
(2) Disconnect and separate fresh air tube (6) (Fig.
28) quick-connect fitting.
(3) Disconnect air tubes at front of NVLD pump
(9) (Fig. 28).
(4) Disconnect NVLD pump (9) (Fig. 28) electrical
connector.
(5) Disconnect fuel pump module electrical connector
jumper. This is located near front of fuel tank.
(6) Support tank with a hydraulic jack.
(7) Remove 4 fuel tank strap bolts (10) (Fig. 28) (2
at front of tank; 2 at rear of tank), and remove both
tank support straps.
(8) Carefully lower tank a few inches.
(9) Continue lowering tank while guiding remaining
hoses and lines through plastic isolator sleeve (3)
(Fig. 29).
(10) If fuel tank is to be replaced, remove NVLD
pump and fuel pump module from tank. Refer to
Fuel Pump Module Removal/Installation procedures.
end , tank out.

I changed my fuel pump on my 93 fleet wood and it still will start but cuts off at about ten min of driving should I get a factory cadilliac fuelpump


NOTE! WHILE THIS IS NOT A HARD REPAIR, YOU ARE DEALING WITH GASOLINE AND GAS VAPOURS. tAKE THE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS.
Take out the back seat (there are 2 pull-tabs to release it and it will lift up) and you will see 2 square plates that are screwed down. Remove the one on the passenger's side and you will see the the top of the gas tank and the sending unit (the sending unit contains the fuel pump).
Remove the electrical connector on the sending unit, and then start the car. It should die immediatly. Try starting the car several time to relieve the fuel pressure.
Next, remove the negative battery cable for safety. Then remove the 2 hoses going to the sending unit. One is held on by a hose clamp while the other is a threaded fitting. I REMOVED THE RUBBER HOSE FIRST AND ALLOWED THE GAS TO LEAK INTO A CONTAINER UNDER THE FUEL TANK.
AFTER TRYING TO UNSCREW THE METAL HOSE COUPLING, I REALIZED THAT THE RUBBER HOSE CONNECTED TO THE THEREADED FITTING WAS TWISTING INTO A KNOT. ( THE FITTING ON THE SENDING UNIT DOES NOT TURN_YOU CAN RUIN THE SENDING UNIT BY TRYING TO TURN THE FITTING ATTACHED TO THE SENDING UNIT. )
I HAD TO JACK THE VEHICLE UP, PLACE JACK STANDS UNDER THE REAR WHEELS, AND UNSCREW THE OTHER END OF THE THEREADED FITTING FROM THE SENDING UNIT WHERE IT CONNECTS TO THE FUEL LINE UNDERNEATH THE VEHICLE. YOU WILL HAVE TO TURN THE FUEL LINE FITTING TO DISCONNECT IT FROM THE LINE THAT ATTACHES TO THE SENDING UNIT. AT THIS POINT, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO UNSCREW THE THEREADED FITTING THAT GOES TO THE SENDING UNIT. IT IS SAFER TO UNDO BOTH ENDS OF THE THREADED FITTINGS AND REMOVE THE HOSE BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE SENDING UNIT/FUEL PUMP ASSEMBLY.
Then remove the bolts on the sending unit and remove it from the gas tank.
Replace the pump in the sending unit and then put everything back together.

Gas leak


Being a 93 model, I would suggest inspecting your fuel tank, rubber hoses in or near the tank, all fuel lines, look for a hole in tank as well. Rubber hoses eventually dry rot, causing leaks. And your tank can and will rust through eventually. This is a VERY dangerous situation as any little spark can cause a fire.

My jeep is throwing a code for a vapor leak. ive checked all hoses nothing to seems to be leaking but my jeep has a very strong odor of gas


Your problem is most likely coming from your gas cap. Your vehicle's gas cap may seem tight, but the rubber washer around the inner edge of the gas cap may be defective. Go purchase another gas cap for your car at one of the nearest auto part's location's nearest you. Change the gas cap and reset your vehicle's computer by taking the positive terminal off for a minute and replace the battery cable back on the vehicle. This method reset's your vehicle's computer. If the gas cap is the main problem, your check engine light won't come back on and your problem is solved. Gas is highly combustible and dangerous. always use precaution's when doing any work on your vehicle that require's working with any part's associated with any part's of the gas emission's system including the gas tank, gas cap, purge solenoid, charcoal canister, fuel filter, fuel pump, etc., etc. the gas smell can also be coming from a broken or faulty rubber gas line or the metal clamp's connected to the rubber hose's located between the gas tank fill valve and the gas tank itself. there are several black rubber gas hose's associated with the gas tank. have a qualified technician check the gas emission's system for any and all leak's gas also evaporate's fast, do to the combustibility again always use caution when attempting any and all repair's requiring checking the gas or emission's evaporation system. Sincerely Crystopper.

Gas leaking from bracket holding fuel tank. cant pinpoint leak.is there hoses on the top of the tank hidden from view?


The fuel supply and return lines connect to the fuel pump on the top of the fuel tank. And the fuel tank filler neck connects to the tank with a rubber hose. Thats on the side where you put the gas in.

Can I repair a fuel line leak with tape or any sort of sealant so that I can drive it to a shop? 1993 Oldsmobile Ciera


not sealant But get small length of rubber hose,,, small ,as in just larger than metal line then get two small screw band clamps cut the leak spot with bolt cutters QUICKLY insert hose on two ends of line with CLAMPS ALREADY ON HOSE screw them tight stop at service dest inform them of gas leak so they can take precautions.

they will ask fix or replace say FIX so they don't chage you $120 an hour shop time to bend fuel line hose to replace entire line... NOT necessary..old school repair if fine replace line is $$$ and not neccessary very little pressure in fuel line mostly gravity flow you may even say its more practical

Hole in the smog line that leads across the gas tank.


You should be able to put a piece of rubber fuel line over the section with a hole, clamp both ends. If it's hard to get to, run a long piece of rubber fuel line (inside diameter big enough to fit over smog line), cut the original smog line, attach new rubber fuel line over cut section, wiggle it over the tank to other side where you can cut original line again, and attach both ends with hose clamps. Let me know how it goes, it should work, you can even go around the tank front or back, just make sure you use zip ties or something to keep the hose from hanging down.

How do you remove & replace the rubber hoses that run from the gas tank to the metal fuel lines? The hose goes between the frame and body of the car I can not pull or push them out, so how are you...


Step 1-Determine type of fuel line to be replaced. Rubber hoses will have clamps on both ends that should be loosened with screw driver. Nylon and steel lines will have a ferrule at both ends removed and replaced using proper size line wrench

Step 2-Using proper size line wrench or screwdriver, loosen fittings by turning counter clockwise. Catch fuel remaining in lines in a gasoline safe container.

Step 3-Remove defective fuel line and install the new line or hose opposite of removing. Take care not to strip or cross-thread fittings as this will cause leaks.

Step 4-Dispose of remaining fuel in an OSHA safe container.


hope it helps-

Gas line is leaking very close to tank. The leak is at the joint where the metal pipe coming from tank meets a rubber hose that runs to filter. It seems to be leaking right at this joint which seems to...


You want to be very careful not to make any sparks while working on this. The obvious is smoking, banging metal tools around, etc. keep cell phones AWAY from the area. Pick up some rubber fuel line from the parts store. Be prepared for some gas leakage, have a plastic pan under the leak. Disconnect the line at the tank, have a piece of new hose ready to push on over the line to as close to the tank as you can, have the end away from the tank plugged up temporarily with a pencil or something that fits snug in it, then remove the rubber hose on the filter, and connect new line from tank to filter, check for leaks, hopefully it is the rubber line you replaced, or the end of the metal line, so the new hose will hopefully cover the corroded leaking area. Clamp and Dry off area and see if you can spot any leaks.
