Unfortunatly, yes that does require dropping the tank. Hope it's low and not full. Get it up in the air and supported, and disconnect the lines and wires and loosen the 2 hoses going to your filler neck. you want to support the tank before dropping the tank straps, or have a few people there if it's full, try not to spill much. When you do get it out be sure to clean the top of the sending unit! you don't want to get any dirt or debris in the tank. Also when you need to tap the ring off on the sending unit, use a brass punch and a hard plastic mallet or brass hammer. I say use brass because it won't spark, as sometimes metal blows can create a small spark, and it has happened before, better safe than sorry i say. Once you get it out you will need to remove the pump from the sending unit, replace the seals, and the new pump will tell you the rest, and just reverse step it to finish.
Good luck!

Where is fuel pump on 1990 cavalier. how do I get to it?


The fuel pump is in the gas tank. It is nearly impossible for a private individual to replace a fuel pump on this GM platform, as it almost always requires the real axle and exhaust system to be dropped before the gas tank can be dropped.
The fuel pump costs about a hundred bucks, and the labor is usually anywhere from three to five hundred.
Sorry.
