Check Amazon for deals on your fuel pump. It's located under the rear bench, very easy to access and the job takes about 20 minutes, probably about 40 minutes if you're paranoid and take your extreme time.
When you do this, you should be on E or as close to E as you can get to, so all the gas in the tank has already been used.
Good luck. Ask any more questions regarding this job, as I have done it myself already. I drive a 2002, which has a slightly different fuel pump, but basically the process is the same.
Start the car, pull fuel related fuse until the car stutters and eventually shuts off. Pull rear bench seat out, two tabs at the base that come forward, then pull up.
Then you'll see where to go from there - the cover will be visible. You only need a few tools and some pliers wouldn't be a bad idea.
Hopefully you are SURE it is your fuel pump.

Is there a way to find out what type of Fuel Pump I would need for this model? I know the fuel pump either needs to be replace or can it be cleaned out somehow?
The car wants to start and nothing. I put the key in the ignition and start the car, but it's as it needs a kick somewhere to get it starting, but to no avail.
Is replacing the fuel pump something that is easily accessible and not too hard to replace? and if so, how can I found out what brand to get?
