There are 2 straps that hold the tank up in place by 2 bolts.when you remove those it will allow the tank to drop down so have to take the fuel lines loose when the tank is part way down and the wiring harness and the the clamp that goes to the filler tube to the gas tank. once thats all done and you have the tank off the car there will be a large O ring you have to turn on the pump assy to get the old pump out and put the new one in. it goes back together the same way you take it apart only in reverse. its not hard to do just time consuming. you will want to put a jack under the tank to help lower it to the ground and then to help raise it back up to bolt it back in place.

I have a 96 dodge stratus the wont start trys to turn over but wont start, changed plugs, fuel pump, and fuel injector and the fuel regulator sensor. any ideas on what is wrong with it?

Have you tried spraying starter fluid in the air intake and cranking it? If it starts for a few seconds at least you know that it is a fuel problem and not electrical. You could also check each of the plugs for spark but I prefer the first method. Good luck!

Where is the Fuel Filter on a 1996 Dodge Stratus? It really needs to be changed and I don't see it underneath the vehicle.

I believe that is the one that is part of the fuel pump in the tank. they are made at such high capacity that the fuel pump will fail before it ever clogs. If you have running problems--it is either a failed fuel pump or something else altogether
