Question about 1991 Pontiac Firebird
Dont have a lift in garage. is there any way to replace other than dropping gas tank? does it have access panel?
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.
