1991 firebird 305 v8 TBI won't start,no fuel reaching carb


fuel pump is inside the fuel tank...you will need to drop the tank by removing the 2 straps that hold it up..make sure you put a jack under the tank so it does not fall and break the fuel lines when you get the straps off.
once you have the straps off , carefully lower the tank to provide access to the lines. Most likely you will need to aquire the fuel line removal tool...you can rent these fron Autozone..once the tank and lines are removed, you will need to get the fuel delivery module(FDM) out of the tank...there is a large "c" clip that holds the FDM in the tank...be careful when removing it cause usually the assembly is spring loaded and will pop up out once the clip is removed...now the bad news...the fuel delivery module may be very expensive for the whole thing...when at the parts store..see if you can just buy the pump assembly...the pump alone should be about 80-100 bucks...a delivery module may cost upwards of 300 or more...reassemble in reverse order...a word to the wise...when you take the tank straps off, there is the possibility that you may break the bolts...my experience with older cars is that you almost always break the bolts...so i just cut them off and replace with new ones

Removal of gas tank and fuel pump


In order to "drop" a gas tank, you should remove a much fuel as possible before beginning. Once empty, jack up the vehicle (making sure it is secure and safe) and then unscrew the two straps used to hang the tank to the vehicle's undercarriage. Once the tank is down, please refer to the attached videos for the actual fuel pump removal and replacment.

How to replace fuel pump


Empty fuel tank, support fuel tank, remove straps from tank (you'll probably have to replace those). Remove fuel filler neck from inside fuel door or at tank, drop tank, remove wire clips and fuel lines as necessary, remove fuel pump, put new pump in. Installation is reverse.

Need to know how to replace fuel pump on 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix 3.8 v6


You don't need to drop the tank to replace the fuel pump.
Under the carpet in the trunk there is a access cover that you can take off to access the pump. You need a good snap ring pliers to get the snap ring off to release the pump from the tank.
I wish people would have first hand knowledge of the process before they start clicking post and cost a person a lot of money and time for something that isn't needed to be done to complete the job.
