The fuel pump's job is to send fuel from the tank to the engine. Common symptoms of a broken fuel pump on a Civic will include the car sputtering and not wanting to restart. If your car has gas in it, but won't start, this is a good indicator that your fuel pump is not working. A dedicated afternoon with your Honda Civic can ensure you get the old fuel pump removed and a new one installed, so you can get back on the road.

Remove the Fuel Pump

Step 1

Disconnect the Civic's battery. Remove the fuel cap to relieve pressure from the fuel tank.

Step 2

Remove the rear seat track retaining bolts. Remove the seat.

Step 3

Remove the four screws holding the access cover on.

Step 4

Disconnect the wiring harnesses and remove the clamp from the return fuel line.

Step 5

Unscrew the banjo belt from the fuel line. Unscrew the six bolts from the top of the fuel tank in a crisscross pattern. Have some rags nearby and remove the fuel pump from the tank.

Step 6

Remove the electrical connector. Remove the green clip, then the black plug.

Step 7

Remove the rubber isolator from the bottom clip and the bottom hose. The rubber insulator will be used again on the new fuel pump.

Step 8

Remove the clamp with pliers. The pump will now be separated from the assembly.

Install the New Fuel Pump

Step 1

Install the new isolator on the sock filter. It will install on the new fuel pump just as it was on the old one. Use a small socket and even pressure to install it.

Step 2

Measure and cut a new fuel hose. Install the new fuel hose and loosely tighten the clamps.

Step 3

Install the fuel pump and then fully tighten the clamps. Plug in the harness and electrical connector.

Step 4

Installation of the new fuel pump is the reverse of removal.
