Yes need a link and which pump should I change front the back or both
Expert:  Gary replied 11 months ago.

ok this has a big side tank and one center rear correct?

are you wanting to change the pump that pumps the fuel pressure to the engine or the pump to pump fuel from the rear tank to the front ?

 

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Which one should I change it has a 130. 000 miles on it truck runs fine pump seems a little noisier
Expert:  Gary replied 11 months ago.

the primary pump is in the side tank

some are noisy but if its making good pressure I wouldn't bother changing it unless the noise it too loud

at 130K can be hit or miss what makes these pumps go is the lack of fuel filters being changed and they become restricted and it over works the pump

the rear tank pump is just a transfer pump that will transfer fuel from the rear tank to the side tank

the one that makes that engine run is the side tank fuel pump

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Is that considerd the front pump cause at gm they say front pump and rear pump what should fuel pressure do
Expert:  Gary replied 11 months ago.

the front pump in the side tank is for the fuel pressure to the engine

 

Customer: replied 11 months ago.

Expert:  Gary replied 11 months ago.
