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.

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.

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.

Jaguar XK8 Fuel Pump Replacement (and Fuel Tank Removal)
This video shows (more or less) how to replace the fuel pump on a Jaguar
XK8. My car is a 2003, which has a slightly different fuel system than the
2002 and earlier cars. Starting in 2003 the cars utilized a "returnless"
fuel system, which means that there is no return fuel line from the engine.
Prior to 2003 there was a regulator up in the engine bay, and that
regulator controlled the fuel pressure by directing excess fuel back to the
tank in a return fuel line. The procedure for a pre-2003 car is essentially
the same, the only difference being that there would be TWO of the
incredibly difficult fuel lines to disconnect.
How to check the fuel pump
You can also check for fuel pressure by pressing in on the Shrader valve on
the fuel rail. If you put 12 volts directly to the pump and it won't turn
on, then you either have a bad fuel pump or a bad ground circuit.
