Yes, the fuel pump is located inside the tank, and the tank will need to be lowered in order to change / replace the pump. Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the fuel pump from around $23.00 for your vehicle.
An estimate for the labor may be around one to one and half hours, anywhere from $70.00 to over $150.00 depending on the shop labor rate.
