I am not ble to find any diagrams to show how to drop the fuel tank and would rely only on written instructions.
1 . Keep fuel level low before starting work to reduce the weight of the tank and also avoid spillage.
2 . Release fuel pressure
FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE RELEASE
CAUTION: DO NOT perform this procedure when the engine is hot. Doing so may have an adverse effect on the catalytic convertor.
a . Place transmission in Neutral (M/T) or Park (A/T). Set parking brake and block drive wheels. Disconnect fuel pump relay from relay box. Relay box is located between battery and shock tower.
b . Remove fuel filler cap to release fuel vapor pressure in fuel tank.
c . Reinstall fuel filler cap. Start engine and run until engine dies. After engine dies, crank engine 2 -3 times for about 3 seconds to dissipate fuel pressure in lines. To restore normal operation, reconnect fuel pump relay connector.
3 . Raise and support vehicle on stands.
4 . Use floor jack to support fuel tank.
5 . Remove fuel tank holding bolts.
6 . Lower fuel tank slightly and disconnect fuel, inlet and vacumn hoses.
7 . Disconnect wire couplers.
8 . Lower fuel tank
9 . Remove the fuel sending unit by removing the holding screws/nuts.
