CHECK FOR FUEL AND SPARK FIRST.
CHECK ALL THE CONNECTORS ON EVERYTHING, ESPECIALLY THE IGNITION MODULE CONNECTIONS. THE CRANK SENSOR OFF THE BACK OF THE ENGINE COMES UP ALONG THE FUEL LINES AND CONNECTS TO THE IGNITION MODULE.

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)

  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.
