92 fuel pump i think is outside the tank, but not 100% sure, you might not have to drop it like the rest of us 97-01s.
check your fuel rail for pressure, if its squirting fuel, most likely your not gonna have to worry about the fuel pump.

Do a simple tune up first, plugs, wires, dizzy & rotor, run some octane booster thru it....or if you like white smoke...Seafoam it...lasts for a lil while then burns off. seems to solve alot of strange things

Not sure why the dealer is showing the regulator as a filter too....

The dealer said the only thing they sold was the regulator itself, or the whole module pump, filters, regulator, and sending unit as one part for $350.00..

Anyway hope this helps.....
Here's some data pertaining to the Fuel Pump Pressure Regulater/Filter assembly.

The Regulator does contain a filter, one of three filters in the fuel pmp module assembly. The outer filter, filter in the pump, and the one in the Regulator/Filter assembly.

If someone wants to rebuild their fuel pump, as described in this thread, they should change the Pressure Regulator/Filter assembly as well.

I sprayed something through that (don't remember what, almost 10 years ago.)
and it poured out the other side. I also blew through it and it seemed clear.

No idea why the dealer wouldn't sell the sock. The parts I got from ebay were
Mopar. Looking back I could have just changed the sock. Since it came with
the pump, I figured I'd throw the new one on.

When we do right, no one remembers. When we do wrong, no one forgets.

The fuel pump assembly requires a good fuel gauge sending unit. The Jeep potentially exhibits problems, such as stalling, etc. if the fuel ga. sending unit is faulty. Something to do with the PCM at certain times needs to know how much fuel is available. If read too low or too high potentially causes problems with certain functions related to fuel and emissions.

I know this is an old thread and at the risk of hi jacking it I have a question. I keep throwing a code on my 97 tj 2.5 saying left bank lean. I'm assuming fuel pump is the issue. I'm planning a hemi swap withing the next year and will need a fuel pump for an 06. So my question is will I be able to kill two stones with one bird now? What are the differences in pumps from the years. I know i'm lacking the NLVD system. Would i be able to run an 06 pump without it for now just blocking off any extra hoses, or would it serve me best just to install the whole system now?

A lean condition is normally caused by a vacuum leak . .

Replacement of fuel filter/ pump replacement is not so complicated work. One and the only requirement is that you should have petrol tank of that size and while fixing it ,you must see its accurate bolt fitting area. If it is at accurate position then you simply have to fix new tank in place of old tank.

Fuel Pump assembly is a complicated work and it will be better to take the help of auto mechanic having thorough knowledge on the subject.

Spectra may be a repackaged Airtex pump, which is a POS.

The best is Bosch, followed by Carter.
