Question about 1991 Chevrolet Camaro

Putting in a new fuel pump in a 1991 RS camaro V8 5.0L

I have a 1991 RS Camaro that, I believe, needs a new fuel pump. It needs a few other things, but I think that the problem it is having is because of the fuel pump being bad.

Here it is: My car wants to start, but all it does is just keep trying. If I spray a little starter fluid into the throttlebody, it will start a little bit, then it will stop after it burns up the starter fluid. I look closely, and the fuel injectors aren't shooting gas into the TB. If this is a fuel pump issue, awesome. My Fiancees car was having the same problem, her dad took it in, and they put a new fuel pump in, and it

So, my question, is how do I put it in. I heard something about taking out the gas tank, and that really sounds like something I would have to do if I had all day and a bunch of tools that I don't have. I don't know where it is, or how to put it in, if you guys could help, it would mean a lot.

My car gets better gas mileage than the family van, and I am tired of shelling out money for gas every 20 miles.

If you could help, I would really apprecieate it.

91 camaro rs 3.1 v6 will not start has code 12 and code 54

Well code 12 means you are in the test mode of the computer, so skip that one.
Code 54 is telling you the fuel pump circuit voltage is low, which could be the pump relay.

You need to run move diagnostics. You are getting fuel up to the injectors but are the injectors spraying.
How do you know that your pump is fine? It might be running but is it building up the right amount of pressure? What is it at? If it is below 33psi then you may need a new pump or possibly a fuel pressure regulator.
If it passes then you will need to test the injectors. You can go to the part store and buy a repair manual and a special key that allows you to retrieve the codes that are stored. If you write back with the code numbers I can give you the definitions. Good luck.
