You have to drop the fuel tank to get to the fuel pump. not a difficult job but it is time consuming and an extra pair of hands will be very helpful. First thing to do is get all the gas out you can, asses how you are going to remove the tank and then start. Don't forget to be very careful with the fuel lines, disconnect them and reconnect them carefully.

Its in side the gas tank On the top of it You have to drop the tank to replace it Make sure it;s the pump first because its not easy to do And you probley will need other parts in addition to the pump to repair this TANK STRAPS FUEL LINES AND THE TANK IT SELF MAY NEED REPAIRS DO TO HOLES RUSTED IN THE TOP OF IT
Try this. Remove the breather, Carefully tip 1/2 a cup of gas in the intake. Replace the breather quickly. Fire it up. My quess is that it will run fine. The fuel pump is the prob! You will need to lower the fuel tank to change the fuel pump.
first off - there can be other factors - long before the fuel pump - - how about the filter? if u spray fuel into the intake does it run for a few seconds or at least 'fire off' showing it wants to run but needs fuel? Also check ur spark before u go that far - as to the tank -much easier to remove the tank - EMPTY -- get a friend -as it is gas and once it goes - it will kill u quick - - and put a jack under the tank - remove the bolts - lower it just a little bit - then remove the lines - there are special lines so check with the dealer - free advice they are good for too - - also take down the VIN number and check for a recall - might be a free repair -
You must be careful if you are going to cut and use a union with flaring tool to repair that you make sure the repair when tightened is straight or it will leak and if it leaks well you know the rest, you must aquire a heavy tubing cutter a union after measuring the tube and a flaring tool this may be more expensive than just replacing the kinked hose these systems are under high pressure between 30-40 psi so a simple rubber hose with a hose clamp will not hold the pressure don't waste your time with that. Jack up the vehicle support with jack stands and follow the steel hose to see where it conects to the steel fuel hose that goes along the floor of the vehicle hopefully there is a place to unscrew stock unoin and replace the line or remove to repaire with said flaring tool and coupler.
PS follow the instructions of flaring to the letter or leak may result, as always wear safety glasses gasoline in the eyes really sucks.
