Okay, thanks.
So, if I just wanted to test the wires on the in-tank fuel pumps, would I absolutely have to drop the tanks?
Also, is the procedure the same for both tanks?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Is there a way to drop the tanks without having to replace seals, etc.?

no i usually loosen straps a little to get to connector and drop tank a little not all the way

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
