If you are car "stupid" this is probably not the task for you.

The pump is inside the fuel tank which needs to be lowered.

What problems are you have to make you want to change the pump?

elantra fuel pump

i press down on the pedel, and it just chokes out, like not getting enough gas or getting to much, i back off and it starts to go, but as soon as i press down to much it chokes out until i back off . it gradully picks up speed as long as i don't press to far down, the check engion light dosn't come on or anything to make me think it's in the engion, i've already changed the plugs and wires, but to no avail,. in nutral i can press down father before it chokes out, but not to much though.

After researching, your car is one of the lucky few and the filter is located in the engine bay.

Here's the "how-to"

Replace it, and see if that helps, if it doesn't, then it's probably the pump.

If it is the pump, you can access it through your back seat. Another plus. My Nissan is set up the same way.

I just replaced the filter on my dads van 96 chevy, They had been having a few problems with it stalling and missing on occasion. It was pretty much stopped up and its the same year as yours so its a good chance that could be the problem. same way with my 93 dakota a couple years ago. The tanks that they pump gas from have a lot of settlement in them and if you happen to get gas when its low in the tank, there are alot of things that can be picked up and pumped into your tank. trash, water, etc. And filters are cheap and not so hard to change on most vehicles and its worth a shot before you have to try the pump. They can be a real pain. And not cheap.

Filter filter

I am all for the filter change it is cheap and easy compared to a pump. do the filter first it sounds like a good chance that is what it could be if you are a little lucky.
