Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be more than happy to assist you.
To replace the fuel pump it takes 3 to 4 hours.
Notice: Do not bend the fuel tank straps. Bending the fuel tank straps may damage the straps.
Caution: Drain the fuel from the fuel sender assembly into an approved container in order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury. Never store the fuel in an open container.
Do I have to do this on a lift or or can I put it up on Jackstands? BTW thanks for responding so fast...I will leave you a tip.
I went out to my truck and took so pictures to help out. My silverado is set up in about the same way.
With the 3 bolts at the fuel filler neck removed
Remove the EVAP Canister and disconnect the 2 fuel lines in front of the fuel tank. With those lines disconnected you can drop the tank out. Don't worry about the lines on top of the tank. Once you have the tank lowered disconnect the electrical connectors.
If you need more info please let me know.
The only reason I have more room is my truck has a 3 inch body lift.
I have cut holes to get to fuel pumps myself, it might not be a approved way but it works.
