The best thing to do is to buy a Chilton,s repair manual. It has step by step procedures. You can get one at most auto parts stores. They coast anywhere from $10-$30 dollars.

Begin by spraying all attachment bolts with a good solvent, then remove fill neck at the top. (where you put gas in) Disconnect harness, remove attachment bolts part way, support tank with a jack. disconnect one side and let the tank come down a bit, then disconnect fuel and vent lines etc. Label them so you know where to put them back. (Many have plastic couplers for which parts stores sell a tool to remove them without damage...have that tool on hand before you begin) Remove other fastener and lower tank to the ground. It's best to have the tank nearly empty to begin, but if not, it really isn't too bad coming down. Definitely empty it and clean the insides out before putting it back up though.The pump itself is held in either by a collar that is turned and locks in place or a "c" clip around the perimeter. Make sure that you clean the "o" ring under the mount plate and put it back on re-assembly. Use care when removing and re-installing pump that you do not damage the float arm or you will have a gas gauge problem later.
No smoking within at least fifty feet and no electric power tools or drop lights. Gasoline is relatively safe to work around as long as there are no sparks or open flames anywhere nearby. If they are, it is very dangerous.

SOURCE: 89 chevy fullsize k5 blazer bogging down

It sounds like the engine is starving for gas however it could be a tork converter lock system malfunctioning, first check the transmission fluid is it brownish in color and smells like onions? if yes it needs to have the fluid changed and the filter replaced. Is it low? any amount of low fluid in the transmission it will act differently. Next if the transmission fluid is good, then you need to do a test of the fuel pressure by renting a pressure regulator and testing fuel rail pressure, this is easy to do and can save you some cash. Hook the gage to the schrader valve on the fuel rail, looks like a bicycle tire or car tire plug, hook the gage up turn the key to the run position do not start read the fuel pressure does it go to 40 PSI? yes? then turn key off and watch the needle on the gage does it go below 30 PSI in 60 seconds? If no then turn the key off remove the fuel regulator hose and start the truck does the fuel pressure go to 60 psi? if yes shut off engine watch the gage if it loses pressure after 60 seconds then you have a bad fuel pump check valve so you would have to remove the fuel pump.
One other thing how is your oil pressure? is it running high? Thanks for using fix-ya if you need more help let us know.

Changing fuel pump for 1996 chevy blazer

Whats the problem? To change the pump you must drop down your gas tank. Make sure it is as empty as you can get it though! Once the tank is dropped you need to twist the retainer ring (usually with a screwdriver, and make sure its got some tape on it so it wont spark. then you can replace your pump.

How do i get to the fuel pump on a 1997 s10 blazer

Unless there is an access panel inside the vehicle above the fuel pump, you will have to remove the fuel tank in order to access the pump. Do not forget to replace the fuel filter. Partially clogged fuel filter is one of the causes of a failed fuel pump.
