Even though the fuel pump is to be removed from the top, inside the trunk, you should probably drain the gas from the tank first. (I don't but I make sure I don't drop anything into the tank...) You should disconnect your batter, open trunk and remove the liner as the fuel pump access hole is between the wheel wells in the center of the car, and that plate has to be removed first. Next you need to disconnect the lines, the electric, and the fuel lines by squeezing the connector ends so that they can be unclipped from the fuel pump. You should mark the orientation of the fuel pump now as you need to put it back in the same orientation so that the lines will hook up properly. Then you can move the outer ring back around enough to remove it and the pump will come out after the retaining ring is removed. It is reccomended that you change the entire thing as a unit, unless you have the skills to just change whatever part that needs fixed - and you can procure them. Hope this helps you, Rick

1996 intrepid was hard to start over the last week or two like it needed fuel . then today it just stopped turns over and tried a different crankshaft censer any help will be appreciated

More info would be helpful. Any codes popping up? Start from there and if codes, then that will point the direction you need to take. I have a 1996 Intrepid 3.5 and a quick guess is that you have a fuel delivery problem. Either faulty fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator or fuel line issues. Sounds like maybe an EGR valve problem too? All cars with over 100K miles have carbon and sludge in the EGR system which includes the pipe, passage from the egr valve to the intake and intake manifold. You might have a simple carbon issue. So, remove the IAC and clean the **** out of it with carb cleaner. You will be surprised how dirty it is. This is a 15 minute job. The IAC controls airflow and if the pintle is not moving per the ECM due to carbon, then it will start and run rough. Could be that your IAC needs to be replaced. Need more info here from you.

My 96 Dodge Intrepid will not start. When it does it will only run for a minute or two and then die. I have changed the ignition coil and it is still doing the same thing.

A failing fuel pump will do this.
Check the fuel level.
A weak pump will not work well below 1/3 tank of fuel.
==== Clean air filter will help rule out air restriction problem.

well you narrowed it down to a fuel problem. not sure about your model, but most cars have a fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail to reduce un needed pressures. that could possibly be bad. its cylinder in shape and has a vacuum hose connected to it. check the hose and that unit.

Fuel pump removal

I am assuming you know how to gain access to the fuel pump through the panel in the bottom of the trunk and remove the assembly. When looking at the fuel pump and sender assembly, there is a square opening that allows you to see the fuel pump module connector. There is a small tab in the center of the connector that has to be pressed DOWN from the inside using a long thin screwdriver.

If you need to take the wires out of the connector, you need a special tool. There are several aftermarket tools available. The connectors have a little retaining clip inside the connector that must be depressed to allow the wires to be removed.

That should do it.
