Question 1999 Plymouth Breeze fuel pump for 2.4 liter engine

Vehicle has 185000 miles. Mechanic did some wiring repairs due to rodent damage. After repairs the fuel pump starter fuse was blowing. Mechanic replaced with larger fuse, but there still is some missing and hesitation on occaision (stsrting engine). Mechanic recomended replacing the fuel pump. Does this sound right? Is this fuel pump model located in the gas tank, and is it accessable without dropping the fuel tank. Should I replace the fuel filter at this time? Any other items I should replace?

Thanks in advance,
CG

You should NEVER install a larger fuse. This is a potential fire hazard. Remove it immediatly and replace with OEM amperage.

Some fuel pumps are accessible from the trunk or by removing backseat. You will have to tear all this out to find out or you will have to drop it. It's not all that hard.

Might as well replace the fuel filter why you are down there.
