Default 91 LS2 sudden problems with starting

has anybody replaced the fuel pump on a 91 LS2. I think I have a bad pump but I sure dont want to open the gas tank to replace it so I was thinking of getting a used tank/pump assembly. is it hard to get that tank out? is this a good idea? any input will help.

Thanks
Dan

I assume you mean 91' SL2? Yes I've changed at least 50. The tank (plastic) is cake easy to remove. The pump comes out just as easy. If your old worn out pump is going bad, why would you want to replace it with ANOTHER worn out pump from a junk yard? Just get a NEW fuel pump assembly and replace it yourself...normal metric hand tools and a set of car ramps/jackstands are all thats needed.

Gas tanks are easier to drop than you might think. I managed to drop a 20 gallon tank out of my jeep w/ 13 gallons of gas still in it. It does help to drain the tank first though. And while you are in there, I'm not sure if saturns have this, but clean out the filter before the pump. I know on the last tank I did, that thing was very clogged, and can cause some starting issues.
