    Fuel Pump for Dummies

    Is there a thread describing how to replace the fuel pump on a 2007 gtx or similar?

    Can't find any.

    Pretty straight forward once you get the sending unit out.
    Just be gentle removing unit as you have floater arm on bottom and top is made out of plastic.
    Remove top black plastic connected to canister.
    There is a spring arround suction pipe.
    Remove suction pipe on top fuel pump.
    Remove filter pad on bottom of unit.
    Remove white plastic suport that's arround pump.
    Gently push pump out from bottom but don't cut the orange gasket your pushing on.
    Remove pad from pump.
    Reverse order and put back together.
    There is a washer and thin gasket under fuel pump.
    I use a long pointer tool to put the washer back in place.
    Then use the suction pipe to put pump back in place.

    I left out to disconnect the elec connectors but I figure you figure that out.

    Hope that helps.

    You can try to remove pump with suction pipe and might be able to get filter to break loose from canister but if not then have to push up from the bottom.

    Well everything went smoothly and as described, only problem is after getting the pump out I noticed that the tank was littered with the remains of the fuel strainer, also the fuel filter on the bottom of the pump was ruined. The good news is now I know why the fuse to the fuel pump blew. I'm guessing it ingested enough of the filter material to bind up. I drained and cleaned out the tank, and the injectors seem ok.

    Need to get a new strainer and filter. Where do you guys get yours?
