    Has anyone replaced the fuel pump on a 2nd generation Tacoma? Just curious if its easier to lift the bed or drop the tank. Been fighting the PO171/174, couldn't admit what was apparent. The truck has some smart electronics and it will try to compensate but when the temp goes up the code starts popping up. Fuel pump had 27 psi. Not enough.

    I dropped the tank pretty straight forward as directions above. I chose this route due to not having a second set of hands to help remove the bed.

    As a previous S-10 owner who has changed 3 pumps in the last 9 years I recommend this... remove all bed bolts from the left side. loosen (don't remove) the right side bolts. Use a jack ON TOP of the left side wheel to lift the bed up far enough to get access to the tank. Leaving the right side bolts in installed keeps the bed from moving out of place.

    I once had to do this in a grocery store parking lot 225 miles from home:mad:
