Good luck on that - I believe the fuel pump is mounted INSIDE the gas tank in an assembly that includes the float and sock filter. You probably just filled the tank ( my luck goes that way too) and will need to siphon or drain the tank to do the job. This job is pretty involved and you may want to take it to a shop if you can afford to. If the problem is no fuel, you may want to change the fuel filter first - it's mounted against the frame rail, driver side, under the car. Make sure you release the fuel pressure by pressing down the release valve on the fuel rail under the hood, top of motor. The release valve looks like a tire's air valve and will spray gas at you so put a rag over it before pushing.

Fuel pump will not pump

Although there are a few other solutions, the most likely one is the system is airlocked. What that means it that an air bubble was trapped around the fuel pump, and the pump cannot move the air. Your best bet is to bleed the system. The easiest way to do this is to disconnect the outlet on the pump until you see fuel coming out. After that you reconnect the line and all should go well. Good luck and I hope this helped.
