Fuel Pump not working

1997 Chevy Tahoe LT 5.7L V8
I have a malfunctioning internal fuel pump. How would I go about accessing/changing it, and do you have any suggestions on a quality brand that is in an affordable (CHEAP) price range!!! I have looked at a Delphi on

Also, would it be feasible to change to an inline setup? If yes, what steps do I need to be aware of? (ie. do I need to remove the old fuel pump anyway...)

Any help would be appreciated!

You should seriously make sure sure that your fuel pump relay in the fuse block under the hood is not bad first before you go through ALL that. I have had one go bad and months later get a bad connection and not turn on cause I don't have the cover for it and **** gets in there. Not sure about the inline I have always wanted to try that.

Does black smoke come out of the exhaust pipe when you floor it? Is so, it is running rich. Make sure fuel pressure is with in limits. A bad regulator may permit too much pressure. Also check the MAP sensor. Make sure it is getting vacuum.

Seem like your fuel pump can't keep up the pressure when engine is started. If you have a pressure regulator that isn't into the pump assembly i would change it if not then your going to need a new fuel pump assembly.

That is not something many domestic auto manufacturers offer. that is mainly a foreign concept. you will need to drop the fuel tank which is a big undertaking for someone without the proper tools and equipment. I have heard of a local shop burning down in NYC because of complications during a fuel pump change.

1997 chevy tahoe misfiring 5 and7.

Check your FUEL INJECTOR HOUSING. The old style factory housing most likely has an internal crack. OLD style has the INJECTORS AT THE HOUSING with tubes running fuel to the engine. NEW housing has wires running to the INJECTORS AT THE ENGINE. If you have the OLD style then it is probably (99%) cracked. This will cause fuel to be sprayed into neighboring cylinders causing a firing problem. This crack IS NOT visible because it is internal. After exhausting all the regular solutions to your misfire with no success, you will probably try to replace the individual injector (like I did....cost approx. $300) and you will still have the misfire. To replace the entire housing with injectors will cost around $400. Good Luck.....on other forums, I've seen people replace anything and everything (including engines) and still had problems with the misfire.
If you're in Louisville KY and need a mechanic (not a parts replacer) for this, try Tony Johnson @ 3215 Fern Valley Rd. 502-387-0847
