I need to replace the fuel pump in my 1989 Chevrolet Corsica 2 Ltr. Is it in the fuel tank? I see 2 straps that secure the tank, what else if anything holds the fuel tank in place. Will I need to detatch fuel lines, I hope not as they are quite rusted and seized?
Just take those bolt loose, and your filler neck should be nothing more than like a radiator hose with clamps, get the clamp loose, get the tank loose from the filler tube, watch you wiring, don't let the tank fall down and damage the wiring, sometimes you can reach up in there and unplug it, sometimes there is enough slack to drop the tank down to the ground. Once the tank is disconnected the should be a metal ring with a few ridges on it, take a chisel, of a flat head screw driver and hammer and knock the ring loose, then you can get the fuel pump out.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The fuel pump is located in your fuel tank...you have to drop your fuel tank to replace it...before you do so you will have to sifion [sp] most of the gas out as gas is heavy...when you get out all you can leave the gas cap off and remove the bolts holding the filler neck in place...Then jack up vehicle and place on jack stands....Remove battery ground cable,go under and remove sheild covering fuel tank,while there remove the ground strap attached to the filler neck...Once the cover is off this will expose the 2 tank holding straps.....at this point you will need a jack or holding and lowering devise to support the gas tank..... make sure it is supported well before you loosen the strap bolts!!!! disconnect the EVap hose from canister it runs to tank then remove the strap bolts ...move them aside and lower the tank enough to expose the top where the fuel lines are disconnect them and the electrical connector,ground ...then lower gas tank slowly checking nothing is still hooked to it ...After the tank is down remove it from under vehicle and use a BRASS punch or piece of wood not a regular metal punch to remove the pump retaining ring ...once ring is removed CAREFULLY remove the pump from the tank.....replace pump and new strainer... Then Carefully put the pump back in the tank...if needed replace the ring seal before you place the pump back in...tighten up the retaining ring ....take back to car and put on supporting devise and lift just high enough to reattach all your connectors...then jack up the rest off the way attach holdings straps ,cover,ground ******** filler neck,filler neck bolts,battery cable install gas cap and start hopfully
The fuel pump on your particular vehicle is located in the fuel tank. If you plan on replacing yourself, here are the steps to replace it.(You might want to have the gas tank as low as possible for this).
1. Disconnect the battery.
2. Raise and support the vehicle on jack stands.
3. Loosen the fuel tank straps to their lowest point.(Do not remove them completely yet).
4. Disconnect all electrical connections and any lines, including the fuel filler neck.
5. Remove the fuel tank straps and lower the tank. It is recommended to have someone help you, if not use a jack and some blocks to lower the tank.
6. With the fuel tank out, remove the ring keeping the fuel pump secured.
7. Disconnect electrical connections to the pump.
8. Installation is reverse if removal.
I hope this helps.

first you need to relive the fule system of pressure. do this by finding your fule pump relay disconecting it and start the car. it will sputer, this is reliveing fule pressure.once it stops sputering your ready to get the fule pump out. it is located in the fule tank. the tank is held on by 2 straps your going to have to take off. once you do that drop the tank and the pump will be on top of it.
The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank, to replace it u must remove the gas tank from the car, there is no other access, the tank is held in 2 steel straps, u will need the car as high off the ground as poss, use a good floor jack to raise the car, then support the car on jack stands, put the jack under the tank and remove the steel straps thgat hold the fuel tank in, drop the tank down far enough so u can remove the fuel lines and the electrical connectors to tank components, remove the filler neck screws and drop tank out, undo the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump module in place in side the tank and remove the fuel pump, be very careful not to create any sparks, these can catch fire very easy, do the job in an area with really good ventilation, best if done outside.
1. Support the gas tank with a jack or something
2. unbolt the gas tank straps
3. unscrew the rubber filler neck going to gas tank
4. Lower gas tank slowly and disconnect gas lines
5. Turn the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump in the tank and left out.
6. Drain gas into gas cans to make the gas tank easier to left
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall gas tank.
Disconnect the negative post on the battery. Support the tank with a jack with a plywood piece. Disconnect the metal straps holding the tank. Slowly lower the tank. Disconnect the fuel lines from the top of the tank and plug them with a screw or something similar in size. Remove the retainer ring holding the fuel pump/sending unit with a brass punch and hammer. Pull the fuel pump/sending unit out and replace it.
