1. Drain as much gas out of the tank as you can.
2. Remove fuel tank.
3. Remove fuel lines attached to tank. Mark them so you get them back on in the right spot.
4. Remove pump and sending unit from tank and replace with new. Replace in tank filter while you are at it.

You all really need to get more specific. You've just got a situation here, no question.
The fuel filter is integrated into the fuel pump, inside the fuel tank.
Spark plugs are easy.

Keep blowing 20 amp fuse to fuel pump when turning on sunfire


Fuel pump relay is bad or fuel pump is bad (sometimes the pump seizes) and creates a load thats blowing the fuse.If both are good then there's a short in the fuel pump circuit.

Car want crank over


This is Caused by the Fuel Pump. If you remove the Fuel Pump relay and it will try to Crank, You have a Bad Fuel Pump. I do Believe that the Fuel Pump is located inside the Fuel Tank on the Sunfire. Not an easy Repair But, Necessary

This sounds like either the fuel pump has failed or the fuel filter is plugged, another thing that can cause this is a plugged catalytic converter, i doubt the issue is the fuel pump relay.

Where is the 1998 Pontiac Sunfire SE fuel filter?


Dear Oilzum, The fuel filter on most cars of that era are back by the fuel tank(where supply line comes out of tank), and usually on the inside of the frame. Find the fuel line from the tank towards the engine and you will find the fuel filter. Most are around 6 inches long and 3 inches around. Call me back if you need more help. quicbric(volvo man)
