Unless it has a diesel engine, don['t remember there ever being one on there. If you are looking for an air pump (has nothing to do with vacuum) likely on one that old, it seized and was removed a long time ago.
On a gas engine, the engine itself makes the vacuum which is then routed from the intake or carb fittings to where it is needed.

    Thanks,I found out it is located under the plate where the battery is located and it looks like an old fashioned steam loco. Seems to be the only year chevy made it that way. Maybe it was the fact it was a station wagon and a eurosport.

    Well, been around a long time and that's the first time I've ever heard of that. ford used to have a pump on the backside of the fuel pump but aside from that I've only seen them on diesels!!! Learn something new every day!!!

1988 chevy celebrity No fuel to the carberator.

without starting the engine position the key to the on position.
you can hear the fuel pump operationing for 4 to 6 seconds upon having the key on.
if not heard running check the fuel pump fuse, the fuel pump relay, and the engines oil pressure switch.
they all work the pump you see
the engine oil pressure switch runs the pump untill the engine reaches normal pressure
once the pressure is reached to the normal range the computer shuts that circuit off and turns the fuel pump relay on

Chevrolet celebrity Climate controls Problem

You cannot stop the outside air from coming in while driving. Vehicles equipped with A/C draws in outside air while driving and directs the airflow through the floor vents...even with the switch in the off position. This is normal and does not indicate a problem.

Car will not run

The fuel pump is inside the gas tank.There is no fuel shut off switch unless it runs through the oil pressure switch circut,meaning if the oil pressure gets low enough,it shuts off the fuel pump to keep from damaging the engine.Good luck,

1988 chevrolet celebrity cranks but will not start

try turning on the key and having someone stand by the GAS tank and listen for the pump to kick on? They may have to get lower to the ground to hear it turn on but they/you will know if you hear it.
