Yes the fuel pump is in the gas tank but before you change it checkout the fuel pump relay and fuses first there should be a fuel pump relay in the fuse box under the hood and also checkout all of the fuses under dash on the driver side it could even be the fuse to you sending unit

The fuel pump on my 1995 Firebird Formula quit running. I've even tried feeding 12v directly to the grey wire on the fuel pump relay and it still doesn't run. Can a generic fuel pump be installed...


No, the fuel pump in the tank needs to be replaced. It's not too bad to remove the tank, hopefully you don't have much gas in there though.

Good Luck!

Gas guage shows over full all the time


You have lost the ground input to the gas gage. Its the black wire coming from the fuel pump connector at the fuel pump. Either the wire is broken or the input to the body control computer is broken, thus creating high Resistance on the input wire. The computer will think the tank is full, a shorted wire would indicate lo Resistance and read empty. Locate the fuel pump connector and jumper the black wire directly to the body (ground) and turn the key to run, check gage. If reads normal the wire is broken betwwen fuel tank and its ground location.

Fuel pump replacement. I have a 1989 firebird. Need to know if there is a easier way to do fuel pump. without having to take everythin off car.


Yes, there is another way to replace the fuel pump of your firebird. Many other cars, like my 1993 mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4, had an access hatch built into the car that you can simply open above the gas tank and fual pump, remove and replace the fuel pump, and close the hatch. I have owned many 82-92 firebirds, and a 1987 GTA I bought, the previous owner had simply cut a hatch right above the location of the fuel pump in the gas tank, peeled the metal back, pulled out and replaced the fuel pump through the hole, and then pushed down the metal and sealed the edges closed. It wasn't real pretty, but it is underneath the back carpet and no one would ever see that repair. So yes, you can replace the fuel pump this way, and I believe you could actually place a hinge on the piece cut out and make a hatch there that looks OK, so you can do the repair again in the future if necessary.
It's a real shame GM did not do this simple thing, put a hinged door above the fuel pump, when they built the cars, like other cars do. If and when I have to replace a fuel pump, I am going to have a hatch put in my firebirds above the fuel pump when the repair is done.

2002 firebird ran out of gas, put in 2 gallons,won't start. Turns over and fires a little.


Takes a long while to get from tank to engine, and then it can flood out easily. Next time don't run out!

Replacement of fuel pump on 91 firebird


i suppose this would work but then u would have water and debris blowing in and it would rust out. i would rather put 3/4 copper pipe into gas opening and slide rubber line through pipe past flap into gas tank and siphon gas into buckets and lift car on jacks and get a buddy to help lower tank or use floor jack and block of wood to lower tank and not destroy floor and create new problems

Need to install fuel pump in 1991 pontiac firebird


Sorry. Got to drop the tank. Just break the gas tank bolts and replace them with new ones. If the straps are badly rusted, replace them, too. Look for tank leaks on the top of the tank. Replace the sock on the fuel pump.

Fuel pump inline fuse for firebird


First clarify stock ELECTRIC fuel pump in tank and you say CARBURATOR. If its not EFI , something is not right. Check for a 20A fuel pump fuse, with a 12V test light. IGN ON The oil pressure switch is on the engine block engine type unknown ). It the engine loses oil pressure (i.e. stalls) the fuel pump will shut off. Hope this helps.
