This is for a slightly newer year Buick regal, should be similar to what you need to do unless the car was completely overhauled in design in 2 or 3 years. Good luck!...

Generally the pump is located in the gas tank. Drain the tank, remove the straps holding it up, on the top of the tank you will see the pump wiring harness. Make sure the battery is disconnected! I think the harness and pump come out as one unit. When you replace it, you will need a new harness most likely. Have you checked the pump relay and filter? I have found over the years that the pump is fine, but the relay seems to go out alot.

The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. To change the pump you need to open the hatch between the rear sets. Move the carpet out of the way. A access panel is their, remove it.

Next you will see the fuel pump module top. Remove the 2 electrical connections and the 3 hoses. On my I had to squish the little clear part down at the hose end to remove the 2 bigger hose. The middle hose was just a matter of fighting with it back.

I would grap a volt meter and make sure that you have 12 volts on the GRAY wire on the 4 pin connector for 2 seconds when you turn the ignition on before you proceed.

Next remove the metal ring . You do this by taking a pry bar and pry the ring inward. The pump might be stuck down a bit, pry up on the pump hose connectors and lift the pump out.

SOURCE: Fuel pump need replacing

drain the fuel out of the tank and remove tank. Be careful not to brake lines that are connected to top of the tank. disconnect lines and wire for fuel guage and fuel pump. use a flat bar or sutable tool and rotate the odd looking lock nut counter clockwise to the first tab and pump will lift out of tank. reverse procedure to install new pump. (while pump is out it would be a good idea to clean the tank out. You may be surprised by how much dirt and **** there will be in the tank. That is why the pumps fail. There is a screen on the inlet of the pump that plugs up causing the pump to overheat and burn itself out)

how are the spark plugs?

would start with those.

the fuel filter is usually located under the hood by the intake manifold and attached to the firewall of the car. the pump is located right by the fuel tank and if you cant see it then its inside the fuel tank. (you will have to lower the fuel tank down to get to the pump.)

No power to fuel pump

First step, a simple step, check the fuse for the fuel pump and replace if needed. Step two, disconnect pigtail from fuel pump, turn ignition on to the pre-start position so that the instrument cluster is illuminated. Step three, determine with a volt meter if sufficient voltage is coming from the wires by connecting negative and positive to their respective polarities on the pigtail connector. If voltage is sufficient, then replace the fuel pump. If no voltage is present, trace the electrical line to its power source to make sure the wires are not cut or missing insulation. Repair as needed. If this does not help, take to your mechanic. Hopefully, this will FixYa problem!

Fuel pump replacement

How to Replace a Fuel Pump

Parts:
1. Fuel Pump - $51.16

ff89027.jpg

DELPHI, ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP -- Meets Or Exceeds OEM Quality, Matches The Genuine Fit And Function

Tools:
1. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
2. Floor Jack
3. Multimeter
4. Jack Stand Set
5. Flat Head Screwdriver
6. Mallet Hammer
7. Socket Set

Steps:
Step 1 * Locate the fuel pump.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 * Have a friend turn the key to the“ON” position while you listen for a high pitched hiss/whine coming from the electric fuel pump.
o Tip: If the fuel pump is located in the fuel tank, you can open the fuel cap and listen to hear the fuel pump. The fuel pump should run (priming the system with fuel) for a couple of seconds. Once it stops, you should be able to start the vehicle.

Step 3 * If the fuel pump does not make a sound (run and prime the fuel system) check to see if there is a fuse that supplies power to the fuel pump and check its location.
o Tip: Check the owner’s manual for location of the fuse box and fuel pump fuse.

Step 4 * Once you have found the location of the fuel pump fuse, remove the fuse from its housing and check to see if it is blown.
o Tip: A blown fuse will usually have a metal strip connecting both tabs that“blows out” (the wire looks as if it has been chopped in half or broken).

Step 5 * If you noticed that the fuse was blown, replace the fuse with a new fuse of the same amperage and repeat step 2.

Step 6 * If the fuel pump now works, you do not need to replace it. However, you will need to find what caused the fuel pump fuse to blow. We strongly recommend that this is done through a certified shop, unless you have the tools and knowledge to test electrical systems and diagnose more in depth problems.

Step 7 * If the fuse wasn’t blown, it should be checked for power and ground at the fuel pump. If there is power and ground present then you will need to replace the fuel pump.
o Tip: On most vehicles you may need to lower the fuel tank to access the power and ground leads for the fuel pump.

Step 8 * Siphon or drain as much fuel as possible from the fuel tank. Disconnect any possible fuel lines from the fuel tank.

Step 9 * Remove any retaining straps or bolts holding the fuel tank to the frame.
o Tip: You may be able to access the fuel pump from the bottom of the back seat or the trunk of the vehicle.

Step 10 * Using a digital multi meter, turn the key to the“ON” position and check for power at the fuel pump. Touch the negative lead from the DMM to a good ground and the positive lead of the DMM to the power cable at the fuel pump. You should have a reading that is equal to battery power. If you do not have a reading at all, you will need to inspect the power side of the fuel pump.
o Tip: With the ground lead of the DMM still connected to a good ground, touch the power lead to the positive side of the battery, to each side of the fuse, and again to the fuel pump. Wherever you notice the voltage reading goes from battery voltage to 0 you will need to replace whatever wires and fuse are in between.

Step 11 * If you have noticed that the power and ground being supplied to the fuel pump are both good, then you will need to replace the fuel pump.
o Tip: To check for a good ground, place the negative lead from the DMM to the ground side of the fuel pump, and the positive lead of the DMM to the positive side of the battery. If the reading on the DMM is battery voltage then you have a good ground.

Step 12 * Remove any retaining rings or bolts that hold the fuel pump in the fuel tank.

Step 13 * Remove any electrical connections or fuel lines connected to the fuel pump. Replace the fuel pump.
o Tip: If equipped, inspect and replace strainer as needed.

Step 14 * Use reverse procedure to install fuel pump and assemble all components back to their original state.

Step 15 * Start the vehicle to verify repairs.


Good job (remember rated and comment this help).

I need to replace my puel pump for plymouth voyeger 1999.

The fuel pump in a Plymouth Voyager is electric so you should check the fuses and relays before inspecting the fuel pump itself. If you have fuel in your tank but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel, you may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it entirely. The Plymouth Voyager comes in a variety of styles and this may affect your choice of fuel pump.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Fuel pump kit
  • Socket wrench set
  • Torque wrench
  1. Step 1 Determine the fuel pump that your Plymouth Voyager will require. This depends on the make and model and engine size of your vehicle. Models manufactured from 1991 to 1995 came with a 2.5 L K, 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72, 3.3L EGA or 3.8 L EGH engine. Models made after 1995 may have a 2.4 L EDZ, 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72, 3.3 L EGA or 3.8 L EGH engine.
  2. Step 2 Relieve the fuel2_bing.gif system pressure and drain the fuel tank. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench.
  3. Step 3 Support the fuel tank and loosen the strap bolts with a socket wrench. Remove the fuel line and electrical harness for the fuel pump.
  4. Step 4 Lower the fuel tank so that you can remove the lock ring for the fuel pump. This will allow you to remove the fuel pump.
  5. Step 5 Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit. Use a torque wrench to tighten the lock ring and bolts for the main fuel tank straps to 40 ft. lbs. Torque the bolts on the T strap for the fuel tank to 250 in. lbs.
  6. Step 6 Complete the installation by reversing the removal procedure.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, it's also a good thing to clean the throttle body with throttle body cleaner. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions for you to replace the fuel filter with common tools. You can also ask for the step by step instructions for replacing the fuel pump if you think it's the pump has gone bad too. Good luck

Fuel pump rset button

No, there is no RESET button. SOMETIMES when you run out of gas, the fuel pump will continue running DRY ( no fuel ) until the engine quits ( losses oil pressure ) which shuts off the fuel pump. Unfortunately this causes the fuel pump to burn out. Most probably needs replacement. Test for power to the fuel pump. Hope this helps.

In-the-tank fuel pump r&r

Here are instructions for replacment with a diagram of the fuel pump components my only suggestion would be instead of draining the tank and dropping the fuel tank if you unbolt the box and using a jack and and some wood lift the fuel tank side of the box this will give you access to the tank and fuel pump/ sending unit. It will save you time and the hastle of replacing the tank straps which are prone to snapping at the threads when trying to remove the nuts.If these brake you will have to replace them.
