Question about 1990 Pontiac Trans Sport
This work is dangerous and needs to be done out of harms way. ( not in your house or near anything esle valuble that might burn up.) The fuel pump is inside the fuel tank and the tank has to be removed to get it away from the car to remove the pump from the tank. Raise the vehical on a lift and place a transmission jack under the tank. Remove any fuel with your draining equipment and sucure the fuel away from the car to be reinstalled later. Act like thiers fuel in the tank anyway ( thier is) and proceed with care. remmove the bolts theat hod the straps that hold the tank in lower the tank with the jack till you have enought room to get to the lines to disconnected them. You'll need fuel line sapartor tools as the lines snap together and use saparoater tools to disconnect them. unclamp and pull the fuel filler hoses from the tank and note if thier bad or not as they should be replaced if damaged, or rotted. lower the tank and remove from the car. Take the tank out side and away from your building or other cars, and remove the ciclular ring that retains the fuel pumps hanger and gauge assembly. With the ring removed the gauge and pump hanger can be lifter from th tank. It'll have fuel in it and you might set it in a bucket or something to keep fuel from getting all over. Depending on what they sell you at the store you'll either be changing the pump that's in this hanger or changing the whole hanger assembly. They cost more but they have new wires and the gas gauge too and as the pump fails it bruns these parts up too and it's better and safter to change the whole thing. Install the new unit as you removed the old one and you should clean the tank out good if you notice any sign that it's not clean. ( this is the reason for failure of the pump) Miles, or habitally running low on fuel will make the pump fail too.

Testimonial: "Thanks: I thought so but was hoping there was an access panel from above."

Check the alternator for voltage output,worn belt and belt tensioner.
A health alternator should be produce 13.6-14.8V.
Any less it will put a drain on the battery.
(example: fuel pump,fans and lights)
Base on what you changed already,I recommend you to
1)inspect the tensioner wear indicator (two arrows,lines or dots) if they coming close the it's time to change the tensioner.
2)check the for worn belt. Look for cracks on the belt.
3)charge up the battery and monitor the voltage.
4)get the alternator check.
Most alternator can go up to 100,000 miles.
Some auto part store has a portable battery + alternator test.

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.

You have to remove the fuel tank. To do this you have to let the exhaust down, remove the exhaust shields and lower the differential.
