How to Replace a Fuel Pump in a Honda CR-V

by Contributor

The fuel pump in a Honda CR-V is electric, so you should check the fuses and relays before inspecting the fuel pump itself. If you have fuel in your tank but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel, you may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it entirely. The Honda CR-V comes in a variety of styles and trim levels and this may affect your choice of fuel pump.

Step 1

Determine the fuel pump that your Honda CR-V will require. This depends on the make and model and engine size of your vehicle. Models made from 1996 to 2001 have a 2.0 L B20B or B20Z engine and models made after 2001 may be equipped with a 2.0 L, 2.2 L turbodiesel or 2.4 L engine.

Step 2

Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Access the fuel pump by taking out the rear seat and removing the maintenance access cover. Unplug the fuel pump's electrical connection, fuel supply line and fuel return line. Cover the connector and pipe with plastic and have a towel handy to soak up excess fuel.

Step 3

Disconnect the fuel pump by removing the fuel pump locknut with tool 07AAA-S0XA100. Discard the gasket and O-ring.

Step 4

Install the new fuel pump using the items included in the kit, especially the gasket and O-ring. Tighten the fuel pump locknut to 69 foot pounds with tool 07AAA-S0XA100 and a torque wrench.

Complete the installation by reversing the removal procedure.
