How difficult is it to replace the oil pump in a 1995 camaro v8?

GM Camaro/Firebird 1993-1998 Repair Guide Fuel Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 and 2)
The fuel pump is part of the fuel sender assembly located inside the fuel tank.
  1. Release the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the fuel tank, then raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
  4. Clean the area surrounding the sender assembly to prevent contamination of the fuel system.
  5. To remove the fuel sender from the tank, remove the fuel sender assembly nuts and retaining ring. Carefully remove the sending unit from the fuel tank. Discard the O-rings.

Fig. 1: Exploded view of the fuel tank and sender assembly
  1. If necessary, separate the fuel pump from the sending unit assembly.

Fig. 2: Fuel sender and pump assembly

To install:
  1. If removed, install the fuel pump to the sending unit. If the strainer was removed, it must be replaced with a new one.
  2. Inspect and clean the O-ring mating surfaces.
  3. Install a new O-ring in the groove around the tank opening. If applicable, install a new O-ring on the fuel sender feed tube.
  4. Install the fuel sender assembly as follows:
    1. The fuel pump strainer must be in a horizontal position, and when installed, must not block the travel of the float arm. Gently fold the strainer over itself and slowly position the sending assembly in the tank so the strainer is not damaged or trapped by the sump walls.
  5. Install the retaining ring and nuts, then tighten the nuts to 63 inch lbs. (7 Nm).
  6. Install the fuel tank assembly.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. Fill the fuel tank, tighten the fuel filler cap and connect the negative battery cable.
  9. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position for 2 seconds, OFF for 10 seconds, then back to the ON position. Check for fuel leaks.

Hope this help (remember rated this post). Good luck.

I have a 93 ford escort. 1.9. I recently had the timing belt replaced and had a really bad oil leak repaired. the car recently started trying to stall on the interstate (bucking/stumbling). I have replaced...

If it is not turning the check engine light on it won't be a sensor causing it.
So you need to go back to basics,Have you replaced the fuel filter lately?
it also sounds like some moisture in the fuel system,beyond that check plugs and coil.

Fuel leaks on ground when I fill tank of a 1994 ford escort. Also fuel smell after I drive.

If fuel is leaking on the ground after filling the tank, then the tank should be removed to find a hole in it, it maybe at the top, also check all the fuel lines at the tank. Hope this helps, let me know.

Gas leaking from tank

This sounds like you have a leak at the fuel pump and sender unit, either in the unit mount or in a fuel line. Check under your back seat for an access panel if you have one then remove it and look at the pump and sender mount to see what is leaking, you may have to start the engine to get it to leak as it may only leak under pressure, hope this helps, let me know

1993 ford escort wagon,no electric to injectors

The fuel delivery system uses an electric fuel pump to provide high-pressure fuel to the fuel injectors. The fuel pump is located at the rear of the vehicle, mounted in the fuel tank. It can be accessed by removing the rear seat.

The fuel tubes leading from the fuel tank to the engine are under pressure during vehicle operation. When the engine is turned OFF, the fuel in the fuel tubes remains pressurized for long periods of time to provide quick start-ups. Fuel not used by the fuel injectors during operation is routed back to the fuel tank through the fuel return tube.

The fuel handling components are protected by three fuel filters. A replaceable in-line fuel filter is located inside the engine compartment between the fuel tank and fuel injection supply manifold. A serviceable filter screen is located inside the fuel tank at the fuel pump inlet. A non-serviceable filter screen is incorporated into each fuel injector.

I can get you trouble shooting tips if you want them.
