Gas Tank Removal

I have a manual 2000 S10 2.2L 2200, and I was wondering, how hard is it to pull the gas tank out to replace something. i have an EVAP code that keeps popping up, and i took it in to see what was wrong and they said they had to pull the gastank out to replace a vent or something that measures pressure in the tank, just wondered how hard this was cause the sensor is like 20 bucks he said, but its 2 hours labor which is like 60 bucks an hour. does this sound right to anyone else?

Re: Gas Tank Removal

I think it is better to pull the bed off than to drop the tank. Thats just my .02 cents. When i replaced the fuel pump a couple months ago thats what i did. The bed is only held on by 8 bolts, but you will need a buddy or 2 to help you remove it.
also, spray the bolts down before you mess with them, it helped on my 94.

i was thinking the same thing, shouldnt be too hard to do with some help, but the guy said you had to pinch off some wires when pulling it off, but i could leave the tank on and just take off the bed, now i just need to figure out what the dude was talkin about, any help with that anyone?

Re: Gas Tank Removal

I don't think there are any Evap emission sensors right on the tank. Think the only "sensor" near the tank regarding the Evap and emissions is the solonoid located on the tank crossmember right above the driveshaft. If so, its a synch. Find out if thats the sensor they are talking about.

When doing the bed, you have two screws holding the filler neck in, a ground going to the filler neck, and the wires he was talking about are for the taillights. You just need you take the lights out and run those wires down throught the bed (take bulbs out so they don't break before running wires). then unclip the wires from under the bed by the rear bumper.

Its a simple job, just need someone to help lift the bed on and off.

I'm not sure what the problem is but if its the pump/filter/sending unit then its easy to fix.
