How do you replace the fuel pump in a 99 GMC Sonoma?
If the year is around a '92 the pump is located in the tank under the sending unit for the fuel gauge. They are not the most exciting thing to replace as i have just done one in a 92 S-10 by droping the tank
If you have a V-6 it is easier to remove the bed and access the top of the tank that way. On most V6 Sonoma and S-10's the exhaust is in the way of removing the fuel tank, you can lower the exhaust but then it will rest on the differential and you will have to lower that also. I have a good friend that is a 35 year GM Mechanic, he says ignore the books and remove the bed. There are usually just 6 bolts that hold it on, have some beer ready for your friend that will help you sit the bed out of the way.
Mine is a 98 4 cylinder, you can't buy just the pump. The whole assembly is $330.00. Look it up on autozone. Crazy.....
Why would the fuel pump on a 98 gmc sonoma make a whining sound for a couple of days then stop even with the truck starting and running ok?
If you mean: "can the sonoma 4.3v6 run with the fuel pump for the sonoma 4.3v6 crew cab?" the answer is yes, as long as both trucks have the same engine they are the exact same pump. If the crew cab you are refering to is a full size gmc, or another make (except chevy s-10 of the same year and engine) or engine size of vehicle the answer is no, don't even try it.
I need to pump very old fuel out of the tank on a 1995 GMC Sonoma. I will remove the fuel filter and connect a hose to the line. Can you force the fuel pump on a 1995 Sonoma to run?
You could by-pass the fuel pump relay with a jumper wire. The fuel pump relay is located in back of the glove compartment. There are three relays back there, one for the fuel pump, one for the horn and one for the daytime running lights. Which order they go I don't know, you would have to do the process of elimination to find out.
I have a 92 gmc sonoma truck and it will not start We replaced the fuel filter and the distributor cap and rotor cap. The truck started and then shut down. IT wouldn't start again. HELP?
There is a good possiblity it is the fuel pump. Spray a little starting fluid into the air intake duct to see if the engine will run breifly. If so the engine is not getting fuel. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank and it is common for the pump to fail. The fuel tank would have to be removed in order to replace the pump.
How do you replace a fuel pump for a 1996 GMC Sonoma The pump is held in place by a 4inch snapring and the problem is the new fuel pump does not seem to go down far enough for me to replace the ring?
If you think it is a fuel issue, make sure the fuel pump is running. Turn on the ignition key and do not start the engine. If you listen very carefully in a quiet area, you should hear the pump run for a few seconds. If it is running then replace the fuel filter first. If it is not running, replace the fuel filter and check the fuel pump fuse and relay. In rare instances…
You have replaced the fuel pump and the relay on a 1997 GMC Sonoma Pickup but getting no power to the pump What should you look for?
What sends the level of gas in the tank to the fuel gauge on the instrument cluster in a 1996 GMC Sonoma?
It is a fuel sending unit located in the fuel tank. The fuel sending unit is attached to the fuel pump. You will know that the sending unit is failing if the fuel guage starts to bounce. Replacing this requires removal of the bed, change the fuel sending unit/pump, replace the bed. It is not a difficult job per se, but requires a lift for the bed or friends to help remove the bed.
