On most these, there are two tank straps which are bolted to the undercarriage which hold the tank in position. It's easier to do with the tank empty or very close to empty. Place something under it to support it such as a jack and remove the bolts holding the tank straps in place, that should let the tank drop out, then you can remove the connections for fuel and electrical.
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

To replace the fuel pump u must remove the gas tank from the car, to do this u need to have the car as high off the ground as poss, a floor jack and safety jack stands are a must, after u have the car in the air and secured on jack stands put the floor jack under the gas tank and apply light pressure to support the tank, position it between the two metal straps that secure it into the car, remove the bolts or nuts that hold the metal straps at one engine and drop the tank down far enough to disconnect the electrical connector and the fuel and vapor lines and the fill and vent lines, then carefully lowe the tank and bring it out, remove the retainer that holds the fuel pump module in the tank, pay attention to the position of the tank fuel pump module for proper installation of the new fuel pump module, reverse above, in all about a 3-4 hour job with a helper.
the pump is in the gas tank siphon the gas out and remove the straps holding the tank(you will also need to remove the three screws holding the filler neck to the truck box under the filler door.)as you drop the tank you will also need to unplug the wiring to the top of the tank and the fuel lines they are usually plastic clips,but if this has been done before and the clips got broken from the first time they could have put clamps in place of the clips.I have found it much faster to remove the truck box itself and that way you don't have to drain the tank and it stays stationary while you RandR the pump with less chance of breaking anything. Also did you double check the fuel pump relay under the hood in the relay box,I would start there first. Hope this helps good luck.
