SOURCE: need to install fuel pump in 1991 pontiac firebird

Sorry. Got to drop the tank. Just break the gas tank bolts and replace them with new ones. If the straps are badly rusted, replace them, too. Look for tank leaks on the top of the tank. Replace the sock on the fuel pump.

Find the point on the radiator support where the pins will be located.Be sure there isn't anything underneath to drill through.Measure from the fender to the center point of the hole location,and measure from the front fascia(edge where the front edge of the hood meets the body)to the center point of the hole location.Use these measurements to mark the hole on the hood.Repeat for the other side.MEASURE TWICE DRILL ONCE.

My pontiac firebird turns on fine but after a 5-10 min drive it idles low then turns off then i turn it back on and it idles fine for like 5 seconds then turns off again i even press on the gas but it...

Sounds like a venting problem with the gas tank. There is a vent for the tank that could be blocked and not allowing pressure to equalize.
Like sucking milk from a bottle without allowing it to vent.
The vent could involve the canister purge system.

Just wondering exactly where to cut an acces panel for 91 firebird fuel pump......yes i am going to reseal it

What Automotive College did you take a class
in vehicle butchery?

By the time you cut the body up,anyone else
would have the fuel tank dropped & be replacing
the new pump.

Replacement of fuel pump on 91 firebird

i suppose this would work but then u would have water and debris blowing in and it would rust out. i would rather put 3/4 copper pipe into gas opening and slide rubber line through pipe past flap into gas tank and siphon gas into buckets and lift car on jacks and get a buddy to help lower tank or use floor jack and block of wood to lower tank and not destroy floor and create new problems

1996 fuel pump in gastank

Unfortunately not. most fuel pumps are located inside the tank and the fuel filters are located along the frame work of the vehicle, running in line with the fuel lines. There are some exceptions. Some cars have fuel pump locations that will allow you to access them without dropping the tank but, this model will require you to at least lower the tank for complete access.
