I had luck by removing the fuel filter under the car (located on the drivers side midway of the car) I needed to do this and when i unplugged the filter, gas started coming out, i started to put a cup but the cup started to get full so i just plugged up the line instead. This is just a thought, it might be dangerous, ( i dont know) but i would remove the fuel filter and connect the gas line to a tank or bottle or something, maybe run an extension away from the car and start to crank the car, forcing the fuel to leave the tank, that's just me thou. YOU DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO, dont hold me responsible.

Gas needle on 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix keeps going down when out of gear help.

If it works in drive but not park, sounds like a short in the harness. A mechanic would check for power and ground at the tank and work back to the gauge.

Where is the fuel pump located in my 2001 pontiac grand prix? Is it in the gas tank?

yup and there no fun when the tank is full of gas. you can find the big fuel take filler hose under the car and loosen the clamp then use a hand gas pump or other means of gettting the gas out then loosen the bolts holing the gas tank in use a block of wood or something to keep the gas tank from falling on you and take the bolts to the fuel tank straps out the tank will come out easy from that point now your gonna have to disconnect the power conecter to the pump and the fuel lines as well you local auto parts store will have disconnect tools for the fuel lines there only 8 bucks or so.
