The Pontiac Grand Am uses a fuel pump that is located in the gas tank. The gas, when poured in to the tank, is filtered first by a strainer. The strainer catches the large debris and sediments before allowing the fuel to go into the pump. The pump sends the fuel along the fuel line through an inline filter that catches any leftover sediments and debris. The fuel filter needs to be changed every 25,000 to 30,000 intervals.
Tools Used: Tools, Adjustable wrench, Socket set, Socket wrench, Drain pan
Remove the Fuel Filter
Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery. This will isolate the fuel pump power. Unscrew the gas cap. This will relieve pressure in the fuel line.
