One needs to be careful of what one writes on an internet forum.



It was a joke.............................................. ...........


I know what the parts look like.


Anyway, I'd be happy for you to send a pic.

I want to see if my hand can fit up there by just loosening the tank straps.

i would be glad to take a pic, but I dont have a FTP. I think those were started with the OBD 2 cars in 96.

but unfortunately, I doubt you could reach it with out dropping the tank. it is very tight in there.

the access hole worked. i got the pump changed out. but it was still a pain. not woth it really. well, i was the guinnea pig, at least i learned for myself and the rest of the forum that it is just best to drop the tank.

It would be nice of GM had an access hole with a plate cover there that could be unbolted, but that would be waaaaayyy to smart and convenient!

I was going to ask if the pump fixed the lean condition but then I saw your WTB posting.

I found a post from a member that was also getting a very high MAF frequency. Sounds like his was cured by fixing a poor connection at the sensor. Check those connections very carefully before buying a sensor.
