Engine Performance problem
2001 GMC Safari 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
I was running the van consitently on low fuel at almost E.
In the mornings it had trouble getting started, until it wouldn't start at all after being parked for a couple weeks.
The only way I could get it to start was by dropping a little fuel after the air filter.
I understand that the fuel pump inserted in the gas tank needs the fuel for cooling and damage to the pump is highly possible at this point.
I bought the fuel pump and inspected the tank mounting to lower it for pump replacement, but I am concerned with the rigid fuel pipe lines coming from the top of the tank which could be damaged on lowering the tank.
If these lines are unscrewed at the fuel filter would this prevent damage to the rigid fuel lines when the tank is lowered, after disconnecting the battery positive terminal?
