2000 grandam se fuel pump location. need to change w/outy dropping tank. is this possible?

Sorry, the fuel pump is located in the fuel tank, you have to drop the tank to RnR the pump. You can try and run an inline pump but it is not recommended due to being reduced from pulling fuel through the old pump and sock filter inside the tank. hope this helps Fix ya up...

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.

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.

1995 firebird 3.4 fuel pump is inoperative

You can but if you ever lose your prim when parked over night or a few day's you may have a starting problem. The other thing too is that your going to have to run new wire's and keep in mind where you live might give you second thought's if there is snow in your area if your going to run it in the winter. That poor fuel pump is going to be exposted. You should be able to do the fuel pump in under 3 hours buy dropping the tank. Good Luck.

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.

Many of the Pontiacs of that era up to even present models had an access panel in the trunk that you could access through the back seat pass through.

Its been a while since I seen the inside of a Firebird, but in thinking about it the back seat pass through may not be present on the Firebird, but it may be worth the time to lift up the carpeting in the trunk area and see if there is an access panel to the fuel pump.

1989 formula firebird

On that particular model, you'll have to unbolt the rear end enough to lower it to gain access to dropping the tank. Use a jack and lower it about 6 - 8 inches. Once you're done that, you'll be able to remove the gas tank and access the fuel pump to replace it.
