GM Camaro 1982-1992 Repair Guide

Relieving Fuel System Pressure


  1. Remove the fuse marked "Fuel Pump" from the fuse block in the passenger compartment.
  3. Crank the engine. The engine will start and run until the fuel supply remaining in the lines is exhausted. When the engines stops, engage the starter again for three seconds to assure dissipation of any remaining pressure.
  5. With the ignition OFF , disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent fuel discharge if the key is accidentally turned to the ON position. Replace the fuse with the ignition OFF .

When disconnecting fuel lines, there may still be a small amount of fuel released. Cover the fuel line connection with a shop cloth to collect the fuel, then place the cloth in an approved container.
