Go to and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, campaigns, illustrations and procedures, etc.

Go to Fuel Pump (FP) under Shop Manual. Illustration shows access place under rear seat bottom. Removed Rear Seat Bottom... you'll see floor access plate ... remove plate to access fuel pump.

Looking for location of fuel filter

Your fuel filter is located inside of your gas tank. There may be an access panel under your back seat. If not, you'll have to drop your gas tank to gain access to your fuel filter and fuel pump.

My gas gas is out of wack sometimes it says full when it is almost empty what do I need to do to fix it

Usually the fuel level indicater is part of the sending unit(fuel pump) it probably will require replacement of the fuel pump to do this you drop the fuel tank, some vehicles have a access panel in the trunk or under the rear seats that make replacing the fuel pump easer because it doesn't require removal of the tank

Can you change the fuel pump without dropping the gas tank?

The only way you can change one without dropping one is by a access hole. Look under your back seat. Take it out. If there is two compartments in the back, one of them is your fuel pump access lid. The other one is your float. If you can't get to it from the back seat, you will have to drop the tank. There is no way around it. Sorry.

No your not. If you removed the back seat and there was no access plate and there was also no access plate in the trunk then you will have to drop the gas tank to replace the fuel pump. Good luck!

I want to know if there is a way to replace the fuel pump without having to drop the fuel tank on my Dodge Stratus. Because I also have a Buick Century with a little door behind the back seat that is an...

You can check under the seat of the Stratus for an access point. But unfortunately I don't think there is door. You are going to be pulling out the tank.
