really simple to replace, first try to get a whole pump off ebay complete or try to buy one locally, hopefully you don't get ripped off. Make sure before the next step, have a low gas in your tank. A full tank with fumes will give you a headache. Next remove everything from your trunk and you will see a round lid after removing the carpet. tap the round door clockwise to free and disconnect the cables to the pump. Reinstall the cables on the new pump and try not to tear gasket. Make sure door is tight and whala! took me about 45 min to change out. Had to climb into trunk on my 2001 intrigue. email me if any questions.

Like he said, but let me be a nit picker .
1.Fuel is explosive or rather the vapours are, don't you know and since you'll be in the trunk, you only get one chance.
2.When ever you play around with fuel anything you must disconnect the battery and be careful not to bang or drop steel tools around fumes. It only takes one spark, so don't end up on the nightly news.
3.The lines may well be pressurized when you disconnect the lines. If you do not know the bleed down procedure then go slowly and have lots of rags handy and get them out of the trunk.
4. DO NOT use an incandescent light. They get hot and if broken then so will you be. Try using a flood light from outside.
5.When you remove the snap ring, i think it has a snap ring, either way, the pump assembly is spring loaded and may pop up a few inches so be prepared for that.
6. Be aware, if you feel light headed then stop and get air or better still use a respirator.
7. Did I mention that fuel is explosive or rather the vapours are, don't you know and since you'll be in the trunk, you only get one chance.
If we don't here back then you probably made a mistake

Would love to have those details. I was told the problem with the multible start attempts was the check valve, is that the same as the regulator?

Thank everyone above for the information about replacing fuel pump in Olds, Intrigue. Here are some things I thought may be helpful for others who try this.
1) The access panel is between the back seat and spare tire. It is about a foot long panel with 6-8 nuts to take off.
2) Take off this panel and underneath you will see the top of the fuel pump.
3) The collar was a little hard getting out of the hole after I got it loose. Search for video on the web showing how to remove collar.
4) Two of the holes have a easy quick release, the middle hose was a little different. I put a screw driver on both sides to get the plasic quick connector around the collar. You will see what I mean when doing this.
5) You have to save the the outside two plastic quick release parts and put them on your new fuel pump. So be careful with them.
6) When putting the collar back on you really have to give it some good licks to get it into position so the tap locks the color in place. Note position of collar when you take it off!!
7) They include a new electrical connector with the fuel pump that you have to install. Wires match up very well, just a matter of taking your time and making sure wires are secure after competion. Match wire color to wire color.
This was my first one I ever did and the above are just some things that were a little unexpected.

i did it on my 01 intrigue. I was lucky I did not have to drop my tank. Yours might be the same too. First make sure you have a small amount of gas in tank and have plenty of fresh air in order to avoid the fumes. Empty your trunk, and remove the carpet and felt to find a round access plate near the rear seat. Once you pop open the tank, carefully disconnect the wiring and remove and replace fuel pump. Best bet is to go online to ebay and get pump complete w/ float assembly. Less headaches, and should only run about 100 bucks.... hope this helps., job took me about 45 min. and before you know it you actually will know how much gas you have in the tank!!!

The instructions are in the post directly above yours. Also, people in our Forums are accustomed to posting info within the forums, rather than sharing privately by email, so that all of our members can benefit.

I've been having trouble with my car dying while I'm driving. It seems like its a fuel regulation problem but I'm not sure what would cause it. It doesn't give itself enough gas and then will give itself to much ans rev high. It happens when I let of the accelerator to corner or stop. Any ideas what it could be?
