How to Replace a Powerstroke Fuel Pump


When Ford introduced the new body-style F-250 trucks, they soared in popularity, partially because of the super-powerful Powerstroke diesel engine. Routine maintenance for a diesel engine is different than a gasoline engine, and fuel delivery is even more important. If your fuel pump goes out, you need to get it fixed, and it's a fairly easy process.

Things You'll Need

  • Open-end wrench set
  • Jack
  • Jack stands
  • Drain pan
  • Replacement fuel pump
  • 3/8-inch ratchet and socket set
  • Open the fuel filter and water separator drain valve with your hands so that the fuel system is depressurized. Make sure the drain pan is underneath the valve.

  • Lift the front of the vehicle using the jack and support the truck on jack stands. Make sure the vehicle is secure before you crawl underneath it.

  • Using your hands, disconnect the harness that runs to the fuel pump.

  • Disconnect the retaining clip on the fuel line with your hands and remove the fuel line from the fuel pump.

  • Disconnect the fuel delivery hose using the open-end wrench. Make sure the drain pan is handy here as well.

  • Remove the brake lines from the bracket that secures the fuel pump using your hands. These are just clipped in place, so you can do it easily.

  • Unbolt the pinch bolt that secures the fuel pump to the bracket using the 3/8-inch ratchet. Spread the mounting bracket apart and pull out the fuel pump.

  • Install the new fuel pump in the reverse order of removal.
