Above link explains what to look for so have you gone through them and confirmed the fuel pump is at fault? Testing of fuel pump operations can be done via the Fuel Pump Test/Prime Connector on left inner fender panel.

Guessing and changing components without testing and confirming can be a waste of time and money.

FUEL PUMP

Removal & Installation

1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Relieve fuel pressure. Remove filler neck. Lower fuel tank. Disconnect fuel lines and electrical connection.

2. Remove fuel level sending unit and fuel pump retaining bolts or cam lock ring. Lift assembly from fuel tank and remove fuel pump from sending unit.

3. Pull fuel pump upward while pulling away from bottom support. Use care not to damage rubber insulator and strainer. To install, reverse removal procedure using NEW "O" ring and gasket.
