Where is my fuel pump?
The fuel pump is located in the gas tank. These are a bit of a pain. If you are planning on changing it yourself here are the steps you should take:
Determine which fuel pump your Dodge Durango will need. This depends not only on the make and model, but also the engine size and type. Models made from 1998 to 2003 have a 4.7 L PowerTech, 5.2 L Magnum, or 5.9 L Magnum. Models manufactured after 2004 will have a 3.7 L Power Tech, 4.7 L Power Tech or 5.7 L Hemi.
Prepare your vehicle for fuel pump servicing. Drain and remove the fuel tank. Note the position of the indexing arrow on top of the fuel pump before removing it.
Remove the lock ring on the fuel pump using tool 9340 with a ½-inch drive breaker bar to rotate the lock ring counter-clockwise. The fuel pump should rise up slightly when you remove the lock ring. Remove the fuel pump using care not to bend the float arm.
Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit, especially the rubber gasket for the fuel tank. Rotate the fuel pump until the alignment arrow points toward the alignment mark. Be sure the fitting on top of the fuel pump faces towards the driver's side.
Tighten the lock ring with tool 9340 until all seven notches engage. Complete the installation by reversing Steps 2 and 3
