GMC Jimmy \ Chevy Blazer Fuel Tank Removal -Fuel Pump Replacement Instructions DIY Part 1
This video walks you through removing the fuel tank on a 2000 Chevy Blazer,
GMC Jimmy and other GM vehicles. This is the first step in the fuel pump
replacement procedure. I'll be posting a video on how to install the fuel
pump, as well as how to install the gas tank, when the order comes in.
Removing the fuel tank on a Chevy Blazer \ GMC Jimmy is not that bad of a
job. I've also posted a close up shot of how to release the quick
connectors on the fuel line. The instructions in this video will be the
same of similar on several other vehicles. I would not recommend
purchasing a cheap fuel pump, stick with AC Delco, Delphi or possibly Bosh.
I purchased a Delphi fuel pump on Amazon for $169.99 (free shipping). You
can replace your own fuel tank sending unit!

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.

S10 Fuel Pump 0001
This is the first of two videos describing how to swap the fuel pump in a
1993 S10. The truck belongs to a friend of mine who (like all my friends)
can't afford a real shop, so I do the work instead. I figured this would be
a decent How-To video to post, maybe somebody need the information.
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

4.3 V6 CPI Fuel Pressure Test
This is the procedure for checking for an internal fuel leak on your 1st
gen GM 4.3V6 with the CPI engine in it. This is my 93 Blazer in the test.
Fuel Pressure should be 58-62 psi, and it should hold that pressure, and
hold it when turned off as well. I have a leak inside my upper intake as I
show you in the video. My engine sputters, and puffs out black smoke and
drips raw fuel out the Exhaust pipe
when running. My Exhaust stinks as
well like rotten eggs.
2002 Silverado Fuel Pump R&R (Remove/Re-Install Tank Method)
This is the complete removal and re installation procedure to change the
fuel pump on a 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500 LS.
The engine is a 5.3 Liter (V8) Vortec with 2WD Automatic. This procedure
should be very similar for a wide variety of trucks of the Silverado or
Sierra series. The fuel pump I ordered (the AC/Delco MU1613) will fit a
lot of different models.
I began with a truck that wouldn't run due to about 10 PSI of fuel pressure
and ended up with a perfect running truck.
I removed and re-installed the fuel tank in this video. The other method
involves raising the bed of the pickup.
It took me 6 hours working pretty much all by myself to complete the
procedure. About 1 hour of that was a lunch break and another 40 or so
minutes were little else besides talking to the video camera to explain
what I was doing.
I had never done this particular procedure before. If I had the job would
have gone much more quickly I'm sure.
