Take off your heAT pannels from over your exhaust(smaller than a 10mm socket), take the three bolts off your stability arm and pull that side down, then take the 15mm bolts that hold the 2 straps that keep your tank up off (one ******** right side of tank and one on the other )..........let the rear seats down so u can get to the carpet and pull it out(jus in the trunk) and use a chissle and a ball pin hammer to cut a hole in your trunk(the tank,fuel lines and pump are about 1 1/12 inch under the trunk sheet metal so be very carefull) you will be able to see your fuel lines and the to cover to your pump(remember to dissconnect the fuel lines while your under the car and dissconnect the neggative battery terminal and rap it in electrical tape) once you have replaced the pump and putt everything back 2gether remember to bleed the fuel line by taking a strong and skinny stick and pushing the fuel bleeder valve down( its located at the back of your intake cover infront of your distributor........oh and turn your head before you push it down because it bleeds fuel by shooting it straight up when the valve is pressed down).....this job took me and three other people from 11:00am-4:20pm to finish and it turned out that wasnt even my problem........so i hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!

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.

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.

The fuel pump on my 1995 Firebird Formula quit running. I've even tried feeding 12v directly to the grey wire on the fuel pump relay and it still doesn't run. Can a generic fuel pump be installed...


No, the fuel pump in the tank needs to be replaced. It's not too bad to remove the tank, hopefully you don't have much gas in there though.

Good Luck!

I want to know how to change my fuel pump and fuel pump strainer


First you have to pull the gas tank. To do this you need to drop the exhaust, remove the tank shield. Unhook the rear shocks from the axle and lower the rear axle to remove the tank.

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

you must not add gas, you must drain all the gas from the tank and fuel pump and clean the carburator also the spark plugs. then put a new gas.
