Not necessary the pump. you need to have an OBDII reader to read the codes. It could be alot of things . AutoZone will do it free. They also have the OBDII Reader as a loaner tool.

SOURCE: The heat shield underneath the gas tank broke off.

Unless you go off-roading in your LaCrosse, don't buy what the dealer is selling you-the shield surly protects the tank from debris and heat from the exhaust, but if you do normal driving I seriously doubt it would ever be an issue.

SOURCE: leaking gas tank on 06 pontiac g6 gt

This is something that is hard to answer without looking at your vehicle.I have seen some of these leak around the filler neck spout at the tank and others leak at the fuel level/pump module. or it is possible ran over something. either way if you have a gas leak it is not safe to drive. if experienced look at tank and see where leaking if running down from the top it is most likely the fuel module(pump) hope this helps some

How do you replace a 2005 pontiac vibe charcoal canister

Can't tell you where yours is exactly. But two spots that is most likely at. Under the car on the driver side, right behind the front tire mounted to the frame. Or on top of the fuel tank, You can see it, but have to drop the tank to get it out. I have never replaced one though. Fix them always. If the box is crack, I get a piece of plastic and silicone it on, over the crack. If the nipple broke off, I use a piece of copper tube, just a bigger than the hole. Heat it up, hot. Use pliers. Then insert it to the box and push the nipple on it at the same time. Do this quickly. Then smear silicone around the crack. keep the silicone close or you won't be able to get the hose connected back on.

Need to replace pontiac aztek evaporation emission vent valve

This is located on the top/side of the gas tank on the drivers side of the tank. instructions for removal- jack the front left side of the car up, unbolt top bolt that holds the heat shield and evap canister up place another jack under gas tank before the strap. (i use the jack that comes with the car i find it easier) unbolt 1st strap lower the tank down there should be enough clearance to lower half of the tank down without droping the entire thing

2003 Pontiac Vibe GT. Takes for ever to fill the gas tank. I can hear the gas backing up after about a half a gallon. I've seen this problem on the web but no solutions yet. Thanks John

i think there may be a kink or pinch in the hose connecting the gas tank to the filler cap assembly. you will want to get under your car right under the gas cap door where you would fill up and check the hoses mainly the large one while not ignoring the smaller one which is for ventilation of your gas tank and just make sure that those hoses are not too long causing the hose to crimp somewhere in the middle obstructing the flow of gas to the tank. hope this helps. goodluck!

I want to know how to change my fuel pump and fuel pump strainer

First you have to pull the gas tank. To do this you need to drop the exhaust, remove the tank shield. Unhook the rear shocks from the axle and lower the rear axle to remove the tank.

Change gas pump on 04 cavalier

it should take you about 4 hours at the most, you'll need a jack for the tank,and you'll need quick disconect tools for the fuel lines. Pump comes out of the tank rather easily. DO NOT USE AN ELETRIC DROP LIGHT WHILE DOING THIS. The risk of spark is great. If you've check the relay, and its ok than you need a fuel pump.
