How to replace fuel pump on 87 dodge aries station wagon

There's no access hole. Need to drop fuel tank. You also need a special tool to release the fuel lines. They can be purchased at autozone or similar for a reasonable price.

Have a 1989 dodge aries and when you start it does like to stay started and it bogs out when you try to take off

considering age and symtoms : classic signs of a clogged up fuel filter (fuel starvation) and/or air filter, fairly simple and inexpensive items, which are part of the normal and regular maintainence of every 15 to 25 k miles depending on your driving conditions. if its been a long time since they were changed , they need to be anyway, good place to start, you can do these two things and possibly it might run like new w/ better gas mileage. HOPE SO OK !!

Car won't start when turned over unless the pedal is feathered

A sticky fuel pressure regulator could cause line pressure drop on hot start. I'd try a good fuel system cleaner like BG's 44K before replacing any part$ tho.

My 87 aries k wont start it acts like is going to but it wont

You don't mention if it has spark. You might want to check that.The hall effect switch in the distributor is a common failure item. How's the wiring and voltage to to coil. Spark control is in the combustion computer on the driver inner fender well.It is also a common failure item. Check all wiring too.
