Torgot is right. I just went through this and there is an access hole in the trunk. You do not have to drain the tank. Really not to bad of a job.

SOURCE: Need to know how to replace fuel pump on 2002

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.

When filling up the gas tank of my 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix SE, it releabsed a few cups of gasoline from somewhere at the bottom of the car. I'm not sure why??? It hasn't leaked since.


Both the fuel pump and gas gage sending units are located inside the tank. They are accessed by a plate and gasket on top of the fuel tank.
If the gasket leaks or the hoses leading to the vent leak, your condition would happen. Unfortunately to confirm the tank would have to be dropped(removed) which requires all the fuel to be removed first. Not a pleasant nor easy task.

I own a 1998 Grand Prix GTP that will crank over but not start.I checked to see if the car has a spark in the plugs,thats fine.I pulled off the cover above the fuel pump in the trunk area to expose the...


Check your Fuel pressure, being the car is fuel injected and a 98, odds are it is Sequencial Injection. If the fuel pump doesnt pump the proper amount of pressure the fuel pressure regulator wont give the engine gas.

My car needs a fuel pump,I was told to just replace the fuel tank


Your pump is not compatible with the supercharger pump. The pressure rates are much high for a supercharged engine. Your normally aspirated engine requires less fuel, thus, a smaller capacity pump.

You may want to check under the rear seat to see if there is an access hatch to remove the fuel pump/sending assembly. Then dropping the tank would not be an issue.

I would not suggest putting a used fuel pump into any vehicle. A new one should be available for 50-100 dollars. Also replace the strainer at the base of the fuel pump when you replace the pump.
