A good way to tell if its the fuel pump, is to have someone listen underneath the car when you turn the key, you should hear the pump start to prime before you attempt to start the car. I had a similar problem with this on my 2000 Trans Am-it ended up being my ignition relay-open your underhood fuses an look for the relay labeled IGN an switch it out with another relay in the fuse panel, many of them are similar so it shouldn't matter-i used a fan relay myself-try to start the car an see if that helps-they are fairly cheap mine was only about $15 i believe hope this helps

How to change fuel pump in a 2000 Pontiac firebird

If the car starts and is not staying running I do not think it is the fuel pump. It is either your idle air control valve not allowing enough air to get into the engine as they can get clogged pretty easy with carbon. Or it could be your throttle position sensor not functioning correctly. The first one can be cleaned with regular carb cleaner and that may fix the problem,.

Why is my 1995 3.4 liter 6 cylinder Pontiac firebird less fuel efficient than it was 2 months ago and how do i change the fuel pump

I don't know why its not fuel efficient. But the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. you should not attempt to replace it yourself, and don't change it on a whim. prove that's its bad, its an expensive guess.

Car stalled while running

Check under the back seat for an access panel to the pump. Might be the pump or just the level unit. Good luck.
