You have to drop the fuel tank and the fuel pump will be located at the top of the fuel tank usually four bolts holding the pump in the tank be careful as fuel vapors are ignitable...

SOURCE: How to change the fuel pump on a 1996 Pontiac

For 1996 Pontiac Truck Trans Sport 3.4L SFI 6cyl check this procedure for Fuel Pump... there are two different electric fuel pumps used:
- A medium pressure twin turbine pump for vehicles equipped with Throttle Body Injection (TBI). - A high pressure roller vane pump for vehicles equipped with Sequential Fuel Injection (SFI).
(see Figure 1)

Fig. 1: View of the fuel pump assembly and related components
The fuel pump is mounted to the fuel sender assembly inside the fuel tank. The fuel is pumped to the engine at a specified flow and pressure by the fuel pump. Excess fuel is returned to the fuel tank by the return pipe. The fuel pump delivers a constant flow of fuel to the engine even during low fuel conditions and aggressive vehicle maneuvers.

CAUTION When working on or near the fuel tank, be sure to observe the information molded on the bottom of the tank.
Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
(see Figure 2)

Fig. 2: Exploded view of the fuel pump-to-tank mounting components
  1. Drain and remove the fuel tank.
  2. Remove the fuel sender assembly.
  3. Disassemble the fuel pump strainer and the fuel pump: Note the position of the strainer in relation to the pump.
(see Figure 3)

Fig. 3: Remove the fuel tank locking ring with a non-sparking (brass) punch.
  1. Support the fuel pump in one hand, and grab the strainer in the other hand.
    1. Rotate strainer in one direction and pull off pump. Discard strainer.
(see Figure 4)

    1. Remove deflector.
  1. Disconnect the fuel pump electrical connector.
  2. Loosen the two connecting clamps, if equipped.
  3. Place the fuel sender assembly upside down on the work bench.
    1. Pull the fuel pump downward to remove it from the mounting bracket, then tilt the pump outward and remove it from the connecting hose or the fuel pulse dampener.
  4. It is recommended to replace the hose and clamps, if equipped.
CAUTION Do not run the pump unless submerged in fuel
To install:
  1. Push the fuel pump assembly into the attaching hose. Attach the pump electrical wires and fasten the hose clamps to the attaching hose and around the pump body, where equipped.
  2. Place the fuel tank sender and pump assembly into the fuel tank. Use a new O-ring seal during assembly.

1996 pontiac firebird will start up and then it will die . The fuel pump is working.


Well the fuel filter would be an easy choice, but it could be something electrical.
You'll need to figure out if you are missing fuel pressure or spark when it stops running to know how to proceed.

Not enough gas is flowing to climb hills or keep the engine running. Does that mean the fuel pump is out or does the 1996 pontiac have a fuel pump or is the car fuel injected?


This sounds like you might need to change your fuel filter, this is the cheapest solution and then work your way from there by checking the fuel lines to be sure that they are intact. After that you should check the injectors and be sure they are clean. If that checks out ok, I would have the fuel lines pressure tested by a mechanic.
