How To Diagnose A Fuel Pump Failure - EricTheCarGuy
I had the privilege of visiting Airtex, and while I was there I spoke with Shane Neuman about diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. In this video we go over the basic steps of diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. So if your vehicle isn't starting and you suspect a fuel pump problem, here are some steps to follow to confirm your suspicions. Another 'quick' test is to bang on the fuel tank and then try and start the engine. Sometimes this works, just don't bang too hard, you could damage something.

1990 Chevy Truck Easy Fuel Pump Removal (4replacement)
Lifting the truck bed on fuel tank side was an easy way to replace our fuel pump. It saved us about $700.00 and was easier than we had imagined. Just needed 1 or 2 strong backs to lift one side up and insert supports. We did need to use a breaker bar to loosen rusty bed bolts. We also had to replace our fuel injectors because they had worn out, but we couldn't tell how bad they were until we installed the new pump. Then they just gushed gas so fast that we ended up with a vapor locked engine. We replaced fuel injectors, removed spark plugs and distributor wire, turned engine over a few times to remove gas, replaced plugs and distributor wire and got the oil changed. Our truck that had been sitting for 6 months was taken to be emission tested and to our delight passed! Truck has over 600,000 miles on it.
