To change the fuel pump first research where it is located, in the tank or near the tank. in my 95 chevy carpice intercepter(police car) it is inside the tank. in some cars there is a access pantle in the trunk, making it very easy to install a new one, in my car i need to drop the gas tank. disconnevting the fuel lines and the 2 brackets that hold it in place. when doing this place a jack about 1/2 inch under the tank to catch it when it drops. after you remove the tank(thats the hardest part) break the seal where the fuel pump is and remove the old one, first disconnecting the wires. one is positive and the other is the ground. then install the new fuel pump. usually there are directions in the box on how to install the new one. then put the tank back in place and your good to go. i just got done doing this on my car about a week ago. it took me about 3 hours with smoke breaks to do.

    How to change the fuel pump on a 1996 Pontiac Transport


    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)


    d7f6f20.jpg


    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)


    42fbc79.jpg

    Fig. 2: Exploded view of the fuel pump-to-tank mounting components
    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)


    c8d9af6.jpg


    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)


    3c2e4a1.jpg


    Fig. 4: Exploded view of the fuel pump components
      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.
