Unfortunately not. The tank will have to be dropped to get to the pump

    That is incorrect, the fuel pump can be accessed via a special panel located in the rear trunk just behind the doors, spread the carpeting apart and you will see a bean shaped panel with hollow screws, remove the screews and pop the panel up, there is the pump...just remove the fuel lines and sensor wires and strike on either of the small poles on the torsion ring that holds the pump down and you can pull it straight out...oh don't forget to disconect the battery ... you don't want sparks in that area....and don't breathe fuel vapors for too long, you can faint from the hydrocarbons.

How long would it take the average person to install a fuel pump in a 2002 chevy impala that has a trunk pocket fuel compartment and how long to install fuel pump if you dont have the easier access trunk...


If you have a panel to open for access to the pump you should be done in about an hour as there is not much to remove and attach for the Fuel Pump as electric is one connector and the port for fuel. If you have to remove the Fuel tank that depends on what you have available for tools and technical prowess. If you don't have at least a Floor Jack get one and an ATV/Motorcycle Jack if you have a friend who uses one or have your own is better. Use the Jack to support the Fuel Tank as you remove the Fasteners from the tank and uncouple the Wiring Harness from the Tank. From there you can lower it, service the pump, and put the whole thing right back in. At this point make sure you clean all the ground connections and if you don't have some purchase a container of "Anti-Seize" Copper which will improved conductivity and seal the connections from moisture contamination.

How to change a fuel pump on a 2000 chevy astro van


It is located in the gas tank, you will need to remove the sending unit at the top fo the tank. To access the sending unit, you will need to drop the tank by removing the straps. It is a big tank so drain as much as possible and disconnect the batter before you start.

Hope this helps

How to change a fuel pump on a 2000 chevy 1500


The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. You can either drop the fuel tank and remove the pump or get 3 friends and unbolt the bed and then remove the pump. Once you have access to the pump, disconnect the fuel lines and electrical connections. Then remove the pump from the tank.
