How to Replace a Dodge Caravan Fuel Pump & Filter

144

The fuel pump in the Dodge Caravan is mounted inside the fuel tank like many other vehicles. You need to detach the tank from the van to remove and replace the pump module, but the job is simpler than on many other vehicles. This fuel pump also contains its own filter — sometimes called a strainer — that might need replacing. You can replace the fuel pump module, the filter or both if needed.

Removal

Step 1

Start the van’s engine. Open the fuel cap and remove the fuel pump relay from the engine’s fuse box. Look for the engine to stall, signaling that the fuel pressure is gone.

Step 2

Disconnect the van’s negative battery cable.
