    The V6 and V8 have different style fuel pumps, both are in the fuel tank and the tank has to be removed to get to the pump. Aspecial tool is needed to disconnect the "quick disconnect" fittings that secure the gas lines. It is made by a company called Lisle and is available in any good auto parts store. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info .There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals or try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription.
