The fuel pump in an Oldsmobile Silhouette is located in a plastic cylindrical module that also houses the fuel level sending unit. The module is located within the fuel tank and locked into place with the use of a lock ring. The lock ring has tabs that interlock with tabs on the fuel tank. There are a series of hoses and electrical connections on the top of the tank that you’ll need to remove as the tank is lowered.

Tools Used: Tools, Floor jack, 2 jack stands, Ratchet, Set of sockets, Common screwdriver, Hammer
