quickly as possible. The Van died at 11:30am... tow truck took over an
hour. it was in my driveway at 1:30pm. I went to the part store and came
back. Started working on replacing it at 2pm. by 3:15pm it was running,

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.

GMC and CHEVY truck easy fuel pump fix - make a hatch
I was on my way to the dump one day and my fuel pump went out.
Frustrating... This is my aircraft mechanic way of fixing my fuel pump.
Airplanes have lots of hatches. You don't have to take the wings off an
airplane to get to the fuel pump.
Some people don't like the idea of cutting a small square in their bed and
that's ok. But I see people modifying their trucks all the time for purely
cosmetic reasons and some of those mods actually make their trucks less
useful so I don't think a purely practical modification is out of line.
On these GM trucks you can scoot the bed back or drop the tank to get to
the fuel pump. Or just make a hatch. Rivet on some tabs and put the piece
you sawed out back on with some sealant. If you have a bed liner nobody
will know but you. Shoot, chrome the hatch and be proud of it.
Now if your $60 ebay fuel pump goes out again it's a 15 minute fix instead
of a 4 hour dirty tank drop. And no need for the $400 OEM pump because
you're scared to go through the hassle of dropping the tank again.
When I took the pump out it was actually just the flex hose that takes the
fuel from the pump to the top of the tank that had cracked. But that OEM
pump was always very noisy so I chucked it and went with the cheapest pump
on ebay which is still going strong after a couple years and is completely
