Gotta drain that tank first, take your time and be smart about it. The book says to use a hand operated pump connected to the pressure return line at the tank; but we all know you're going to siphon it. Just don't use a vinyl tube, it holds and conducts static electricity, use rubber fuel hose. Disconnect, drain & drop. Replace the pump assembly and reverse the procedure. Look for upwards of 500-1100 dollars from garages/dealers. The part itself is just under $300. Reliable used parts are available at the yard or internet for about $50 or less.

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank. You need to have the means to support the fuel tank when you remove the mount straps so you can lower it far enough to get to the fuel pump which installs in the top of the tank. Hopefully it's not full of gas!

Your cars fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. All fuel injected cars except a few older foreign cars [mostly European] have electric pumps located inside the tank. This allows them to make the pressure required by the fuel injectors.

Fuel Starvation, fuel line blockage, need a layout of fuel lines, fuel filter to replace filter, and check for blockages


i do believe that the filter is attached to the pump inside the tank. You would have to drop the tank and pull out pump. the filter is actually a sock on the bottom of the pump.

My 2003 Chevy Malibu suddenly lost power climbing a hill. The engine light started flashing. I was able to drive it home at 30 mph.


Could either be the ignition system - ie, coil packs, fuel filter, fuel pump, or bad gas. Was it sputtering?
