Not a big job. First disconnect your battery. Jack truck up or ramps. Undo the bolts to the fuel cell guard plat and remove it. Undo the 2 hoses going into the tank. This is your fill hose and the vapor recovery hose. Tank may be heavy so you will need a floor jack or transmission jack. If your a hill billy, you will find something lol. Place jack under the tank and just enough pressure to ease it when you undo bolts. Now undo the 2 bolts on the fuel tank straps. Move the straps as far as they will swing. Lower tank a little bit. On top of the tank, you will see 2 small hoses, and an electrical plug. . Sometimes these are quick clips, and sometimes it's clamps. undo then lower tank all the way. Make sure you lean the tank towards the front so you don't spill fuel. . On top of the tank you will see a big ring going around the whole sending unit. Clean all the dirt off the sending unit before you start. That way it doesn't get dirt in the tank. With a brass punch [ no spark ] tap this big ring counter clock wise . You may have to pry the locking tabs out while you do this. Tap the ring until its loose. Before pulling out the sending unit, clean it all again Pull sending unit out [ sometimes it sticks ]. Be careful not to lose the rubber O Ring around the unit. Take pump and unit out and replace pump [ easy. Replace the opposite of removal. Good luck please rate my solution Cheers from Nova Scotia!!

2001 grand am fuel pump runs but I only get fuel sometimes. Fuel pump going bad? Or losing prime somehwere? May have run fuel lines dry


Install a fuel pressure gauge on the rail and turn the ignition key from OFF to ON, so you can hear the fuel pump run. Do this about three times, then check your pressure. Check for drain-back.

You could have a clogged fuel-filter, but if it has been clogged for some time, its possible that it strained the fuel pump and could have damaged the fuel pump as well. If you have low pressure, I would suggest changing the fuel filter first to see if it improves. You may find that you need to change both. If the fuel pressure drops rapidly after turning the key off, you have an issue with the check valve in the fuel pump, and the assembly will need to be changed.

2001 cavalier died while driving, now it wont start


Could be failed fuel pump. Disconnect fuel line at engine and turn over a couple times having something to catch gas in. If electric pump don't turn over engine, just turn key to run position for a few seconds. Maybe clogged fuel filter or faulty pump if no gas shows. Change fuel filter and try again. If none, change pump.
