That depends on how much fuel is in the tank, if the tank is full or at least half, then removing the bed is easier, if the tank is less then half full removing the tank is easier. It all depends on where your fuel level is to what is easier. The only other thing that I can think of is that if you do not have a second person to help you remove the bed, then dropping the tank with a Jack would be easier, so it all depends on what your situation is.

Is the fuel pump on a 2000 Chevy Silverado 4x4 located in the gas tank?


Yes the fuel pump is located on top of the gas tank. you will need to move your entire truck bed to get to it...alot easier than taking the gas tank down. simply takes a few bolts to loosen and 2 people to life and move the bed and then you have direct access to the pump

93 chevrolet silverado will not start fuel to throttle body can spray fuel in to it and it will start then dies (runs out of the fuel sprayed in)


Check for a dirty fuel filter, or it's a fuel pump relay/pump. If it has never had a fuel pump changed on it, it will say AC DELCO on the filter. The fuel filter is located under drivers side door along the frame. Fairly easy to change, and if this doesn't fix the problem, then it is the fuel pump relay/fuel pump. *Hint... it is easier to remove the bed of the truck than to drop the tank out. From experience it is much faster and easier to access.

Let me know,

I have a 1989 chevy 1500 5.7, where is the fuel pump on tank?


You "could" remove the bed, or just lift it high enough to work on the tank. There are 6 or 8 bolts depending if it is a short bed or long bed. But you should undo the 2 straps from underneath, the filler tube from the gas cap filler, and lower the tank with a jack. Another problem these trucks have is the wiring connection to the sending unit/fuel pump assembly. GM recommends to replace this harness end when you work on it. (about $12.00 for the harness connection). These sending units/pumps retail about $300-$400, but you can find them on line starting about $120.00.

How to change a fuel pump on a 2000 chevy 1500


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. You can either drop the fuel tank and remove the pump or get 3 friends and unbolt the bed and then remove the pump. Once you have access to the pump, disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connections. Then remove the pump from the tank.

Process to change fuel pump on 2001 chevy silverado 1500


take the six bed bolt loose and then take three buddies slide the bed back put in the new pump slide it back n place and put the bed bolts back in. if u drop the tank u can easily break the hard plastis lines that go to the fuel tank. u only have to take the fill lines and taillight wires loose this way its alot quicker, and easier.

I have a bad fuel pump and am going to replace it in my 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500. It is a Z71 Shortbed extended cab. I have read a couple of posts from different people who say it is easier to remove...


definitely easier to remove the bed....unless you like the taste of dirt :-)....round up 3-4 buddys and everyone grab a corner after the bolts, ground straps, and fuel filler are loose, pick it up and set it back a foot or two (on the tires and bumper). That'll give you plenty of room to work.
