I started changing the fuel pump on the wagon.. Sorry NO IN PROGRESS videos. Ill make one later about WHY I had problems with it.. Lets just say 18 years eats up stuff inside the tank. Its all back together now! It was EASY to do... (Plastic tanks are nice) The SENDER assy. was pretty rusty so I wire wheeled all the tubes and painted it. Plus I cleaned up The senders contacts so the fuel gauge is more accurate. Its like new! ITS THE 1st tank I DROPPED since the 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 I had. On my truck I took the bed off! When the fuel pump failed.

Been a little while since I had any videos to share! But now I have quite
a few to edit and upload so stay tuned!
This is some shots of me making my access panel for my fuel pump in my 86
Trans AM. The fuel tank is a 2002 plastic fuel tank. You'll notice with
this combination, I dont need to cut the football field sized hole that you
need to cut with the 82-92 and 93-98 metal tanks. Its a pretty small
I make sure I radius cut the corners to keep the stress points down. I
will be making a nice cover to seal this up. I might put it in another
video, but most likely Ill do it and comment on it in another video.
Im not 100% thrilled with how the nibbler worked. I should have practiced
with it a little to get a feel for how it was going to cut. But, it
Thanks for watching!

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!

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
