Replacingn Fuel Sending Unit
\015 I am attempting to replace the fuel sending unit in my 98 Ford Festiva.\015\012\015\012do I have to drain the fuel tank to do this, or just relieve the fuel pressure?\015
If you have access to it without removing the fuel tank, there is no reason to drain the tank. Just relieve the pressure. Have rags handy when the lines are pulled apart to catch fuel drips. Clean the area well around the pump assembly to tank mounting hole. Use an air compressor if available, or just make sure no dirt falls into the tank after the pump is removed.
