It is not nessesary to drain it, if you have a way to get the tank back up when you are done, it makes it a bit harder to work with just be careful with your body stadic, empty or full, stadic will cause fuel to ignite ground yourself to prevent this

'91 volvo 940 turbo only go so far b4 fuel pump relay & d # 1 fuse (ignition & fuel pump) get 2 hot when do I have 2 sit 15 min. 4 d fuel pump relay & fuse 2 cool D alternator is fine what cause this

I suspect the fuel pump circuit is drawing to much power. Do you have something else hooked into those wires(Audio equip?) The fuse is there to protect the relay. Have you put a bigger fuse (bigger number) in there to keep it from blowing the fuse? If not I suspect a bad fuel pump or a stuck fuel pressure regulator(Causing the pump to work too hard- drawing more electrical power) Just remember, its hard to put the smoke back in once it catches fire.

I just bought a1999,it has been sitting for 6 yrs

You must drain the fuel and refill with fresh fuel before cranking. Fuel goes off if left over time and can clog and destroy the fuel pump.

Truck wont start, can u put a mec. fuel pump on it

unless it isn't the fuel pump and it is ignition related. when you turn the key to the engine run position b4 starting you should get a hum sound for 2 seconds if you here that then the pump is still good but the way things are designed now days you will have a real challenge to install an external fuel pump

2000 chevy express 3500 van with a 350. Hard time starting. When it starts runs beautiful! Will only start after several taps of the key as if you where setting timing. Not with key fully turning over....

sounds like the check valve in fuel pump is allowing fuel to drain back out of lines. this would require ystem to prime up each time it is cranked. check fuel pressure it should hold with key off if it leaks down this is problem and pump will need to be replaced

you can put the live wire from the battery directly to the pump connector. if you have the difficulty to select the right connector, you need to take out the pump assembly then see from inside.

No power to fuel pump

What you need to do is drop the fuel tank and put a new fuel pump in it. I would drain the gas and put new gas in after you get the pump changed.
