What are the steps to replace the fuel pump on a chevy trailblazer 2002

This is what it looks like and it is located in the gas tank:

First, you'll need to use up as much fuel as possibly, if not, you'll have to drain the tank. Next:

  1. Drain the fuel tank.
  2. Support the fuel tank.
    1. Remove or disconnect the following:
    2. Negative battery cable
    • Filler neck from the tank
    • Shield from tank and tank straps
    • Fuel lines and vapor hose from pump
    • Electrical connection from fuel pump
    • Fuel tank
    • Fuel pump/sending unit assembly by turning the locking ring (located on top of the fuel tank) counterclockwise using a spanner wrench
    • Fuel pump from the fuel lever sending device
  • NOTE
    The fuel pump strainer must be in a horizontal position when the fuel sender is installed in the tank. When installing the sender assembly, make sure that the fuel pump strainer does not block full travel of the float arm.

    To install:

    1. Install or connect the following:
      • Fuel pump in tank with new seal around opening


      The fuel pump strainer must be in a horizontal position when the fuel sender is installed in the tank. When installing the sender assembly, make sure that the fuel pump strainer does not block full travel of the float arm.

    How difficult is it to replace the oil pump in a 1995 camaro v8?

    GM Camaro/Firebird 1993-1998 Repair Guide Fuel Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    (see Figures 1 and 2)
    The fuel pump is part of the fuel sender assembly located inside the fuel tank.
    1. Release the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Drain the fuel tank, then raise and safely support the vehicle.
    3. Remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
    4. Clean the area surrounding the sender assembly to prevent contamination of the fuel system.
    5. To remove the fuel sender from the tank, remove the fuel sender assembly nuts and retaining ring. Carefully remove the sending unit from the fuel tank. Discard the O-rings.

    Fig. 1: Exploded view of the fuel tank and sender assembly
    1. If necessary, separate the fuel pump from the sending unit assembly.

    Fig. 2: Fuel sender and pump assembly

    To install:
    1. If removed, install the fuel pump to the sending unit. If the strainer was removed, it must be replaced with a new one.
    2. Inspect and clean the O-ring mating surfaces.
    3. Install a new O-ring in the groove around the tank opening. If applicable, install a new O-ring on the fuel sender feed tube.
    4. Install the fuel sender assembly as follows:
      1. The fuel pump strainer must be in a horizontal position, and when installed, must not block the travel of the float arm. Gently fold the strainer over itself and slowly position the sending assembly in the tank so the strainer is not damaged or trapped by the sump walls.
    5. Install the retaining ring and nuts, then tighten the nuts to 63 inch lbs. (7 Nm).
    6. Install the fuel tank assembly.
    7. Lower the vehicle.
    8. Fill the fuel tank, tighten the fuel filler cap and connect the negative battery cable.
    9. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position for 2 seconds, OFF for 10 seconds, then back to the ON position. Check for fuel leaks.

    Hope this help (remember rated this post). Good luck.
