The pump is in the tank. Empty the tank, disconnect the filler and vent tubes, and remove the straps that hold it under the car. Take the strap bolts off the rear end and the front should just slide out. Have a jack ready to help lower and roll out of the way.

Have you changed the fuel filter? Did it die while driving, or just wouldn't start? Don't use starting fluid on a gas engine! It will cause a lot more problems than it solves. Ether, starting fluid is made for diesel engines... not gas, not ever. If it won't start, it isn't lacking ether. It's lacking gas, air or spark.

SOURCE: fuel pump location 2001 pontiac grand am

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

SOUND LIKE FUEL PUMP.LISTEN FOR FUEL PUMP OPERATING BY TURN IGNITION TO THE ON POSITION.YOU SHOULD HEAR FUEL PUMP RUN FOR 3 SECONDS AND TURN OFF.IF YES REPLACE FUEL FILTER.IF YOU HEAR NO FUEL PUMP NOISE.CHECK FUEL PUMP FUSE AND RELAY.IF BOTH OKAY.CODE SCAN CAR FIRST BEFORE BUYING NEW FUEL PUMP.BECAUSE FAULT IN THE THEFT SECURITY SYSTEM AND PCM WILL DISABLE FUEL SYSTEM.

''My flooded car starts but wont stay running after replacing engi


Has the gas tank been drained and let to dry out and then refilled with gas and a water dryer and the fuel filter replaced? If not then you are in for trouble still and this is why is will not run. You are getting fuel and spark. Which means that your fuel pump is working and the starter is fine. Ingnition could be your problem but I would do the gas thing first then move on
