When replacing the fuel pump in a 1996 Chevy truck with V6 engine is it easier to drop the tank which happens to be full or remove the bed off the truck?
AnswerIt is easier to take the bed off and push the bed off about 3 ft and bam you at the gas tank their should be a total of 8 bolts to take off for the bed
NOTE: The 8 bolts that hold the bed on are 18 mm (use a 6-point impact and a long breaker, because these bolts will be hard to turn. Use anti-sieze when you put them back.
You will have to lift the bed over the bumper or use blocks to hold the front of the bed up.
You also need to replace the wiring harness inside the tank (they go bad too) and a new fuel filer at the end of the pump.
Doing it this way keeps you from bending and breaking brake/fuel lines. consider making an access panel in the floor of the bed to make it even easier next time (becuase there will be a next time).
Is it easier to remove the engine alone or with the transmission in this case a Ford ranger 4x4 V6 automatic 1990?
Follow the top hose from the radiator to the engine. At the engine should be a housing held on by two bolts. Drain the coolant remove the hose then remove the housing. (Removing the hose makes the installation easier.) The thermostat is inside the housing. Make sure to clean all the old gasket off the two mating surfaces before replacing the new gasket. Good luck.
It depends on the boat. Some have an engine cover that is removable and the engine can be removed easily. Others have the engine under a deck and you literally have to cut a hole in the deck to remove the engine. On really big boats it may be easier to cut a hole in the side of the boat to remove the engine.
support the bottom of the engine with a floor jack and a piece of wood, then remove the bolt that goes through the mount, then remove the bolts and one nut that holds the bracket to the engine...your may have to lower or raise the height of the engine to get the mount out...it is tricky so take your time and be careful not to damage anything....if you get fustrated its time for a beer…
How do you remove engine wiring harness on a 2003 mitsubishi eclipse does the heater box have to come out?
How do you discharge pressure from the fuel system before replacing the fuel filter in a 2000 Chevy Astro vans?
Drain some of coolant by opening pitcock. Then remove oil fill tube by twisting it about quarter turn. The plastic top engine cover just lifts straight up. Remove engine end of top radiator hose and tuck it out of the way. You can get to sensor with top motor in place but alot easier if removed. Then unplug sensor from wiring harness. Now you can remove sensor from engine with 19mm or I found out…
You can remove the starter from the front of the engine. It is relatively simple versus other cars. It is located right in the middle of the engine in the front and is easier to remove from the top of engine versus from underneath. Just make sure to first disconnect the battery and to make sure the wire are replaced in the same way and place. Good luck...Rob
The engine and transmission have to come out together from the top and then separated once they are out of the engine bay. You don't have to remove the engine to remove the transmission. You can support the engine with a support bar and drop the transmission through the wheel well by lowering the engine cradle. It is much easier this way and i have seen it done numerous times.
Can you put a inline fuel pump on a 1992 dodge caravan 3.3 liter instead of replacing the one in the fuel tank?
yes you remove a Nissan 200sx motor from the top. unless you want to drop it down through the engine compartment using a lift. its much easier to pull the motor off the top of the transmission than to take it all out the bottom. its even easier to replace a clucth by pulling the motor thatn pulling the trannie.
It depends which engine is fitted. The 1.4/1.6 petrol engines require removal of the cambelt cover and cam belt to gain access to the thermostat. This in my opinion is not a job to be tackled lightly. One mistake replacing the belt could mean a trashed engine!!!! The 1.8 petrol engine is quite a bit easier as the thermostat housing pokes out from the side of the cambelt cover. Sorry, don't know about the 2.2…
To remove/replace the engine on a mid-90's G series van, you must remove everything in front of the engine, from grill to radiator, and remove it from the front. You may need to remove the motor mount to crossmember bolts to allow the engine to move forward. It is best to keep the transmission bolted to the engine, as it will be easier to align, etc when you are ready to reinstall it. Keep in…
