Raise and safely support the vehicle.
Observe all applicable safety precautions when working around
gasoline. Do not allow fuel spray or fuel vapors to come in contact with a spark
or open flame. Keep a dry chemical (Class B) fire extinguisher near the work
area. Never drain or store fuel in an open container due to the possibility of
fire or explosion.
Use a suitable hand operated pump device to drain the fuel through the
filler tube into an approved container.
Before disconnecting any fuel lines from the fuel tank, thoroughly clean
around all hose connections.
Disconnect the fuel filler vent hose from the fuel tank.
Detach the fuel filler hose from the fuel filler inlet tube on the fuel
tank. Position the hose out of the way.
Disconnect the vapor hose from the front of the fuel tank.
Detach the fuel return pipe and position the hose out of the way.
Disconnect the two rear rubber exhaust hangers from the rear of the exhaust
system and allow the exhaust system to hang down slightly.
Unfasten the exhaust shield mounting bolts, then remove the exhaust shield.
Support the fuel tank with a suitable jack.
Remove the two bolts securing the fuel tank straps, then swing the straps
out of the way.
Lower the fuel tank enough to disconnect the vapor hose from the fuel sender
assembly and the vapor hose from the vapor pipe at the rear of the fuel tank.
Detach the electrical connector from the fuel sender assembly and remove the
two retaining clips.
Remove the tank from the vehicle, slowly to ensure all connections and hoses
have been disconnected.
Clean all parts well. Inspect the tank for dents, rust or other damage. On
high-mileage vehicles, it may be good practice to remove the fuel pump module
and replace the flexible strainer on the fuel pump.
Position the fuel tank under the vehicle and raise the tank with a suitable
Connect the vapor hose to the fuel tank at the vapor pipe at the rear of the
tank and connect the vapor hose to the sender assembly.
Attach the electrical connector to the fuel sender assembly.
Connect the fuel feed and return lines to the sender assembly.
Raise the tank into position into the vehicle and swing the mounting straps
under the tank.
Install the front fuel tank strap mounting bolts and tighten to 35 ft. lbs.
Remove the jack.
Connect the fuel return pipe to the fuel feed pipe.
Attach the rear fuel feed pipe to the inlet side of the fuel filter.
Tighten the line fittings to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm). Make sure to use a back-up
wrench to prevent the fuel filter from turning.
Connect the vapor hose to the vapor pipe at the front of the vehicle.
Attach the fuel filler vent hose to the tank. Connect the fuel filler hose
to the fuel filler neck of the tank.
Install the exhaust heat shield and the mounting bolts.
Position the exhaust system and install the rubber hangers.

The fuel pump is in the gas tank. Drive off or siphon out as much gas as you can. You will need to remove the filler hose. Drop the tank and remove the fuel lines on the top of the tank, Turn the ring counter clock wise that holds the siphon and pump in. Once the ring is loose, lift the the siphon and pump assembly out of the tank. The pump is on the bottom of the siphon. Replace, then reverse the process.
well hear comes the calvery. just kidden. i'll try to help, first, the best thing to do is fuel pressure chk. fuel pumps can sound like there working but there not. you can rent one at autozone and do it your self. its the only true way to tell if your pump is bad or good. your car has to have a certain amount of fuel pressure to run, autozone can tell you how much, and also show you how and where to hook it up. Good for you for wanting to do it yourself. just a few things you should know before you tackel this project. first get all the gas you can out of the tank, at about 8 pounds a gal. you don't need any extra weight. secound get someone to help you, its always best to have someone around even if its just for moral support, but more than that it can be a little ocward, and the extra hand dosent hurt either. and third the higher in the air the better hoist would be perfect. don't be intimidated by what i have said here, this is the worst case senareo if pump is bad. it not that hard and the more help you got the easier it is. heck it might not even be the pump, and all this pecking might be for nothing. hope everything works out for you.

No spark issue can be from a number of causes. Most likely the crankshaft position sensor. It is sensitive to minor damages. check position of the teeth. If bent carefully straighten. Also can be the ECM (main computer) On cars with no fuel pressure check oil sending unit because a faulty one that tells no oil pressure will make computer cut out fuel pump operation.
