I'd start by replacing the purge solenoid to see if that helps if not to remove the fuel pump you will need to remove the rear seat, then remove access panel to remove fuel pump.

The canister purge solenoid is at the passenger's side of the engine on the intake manifold located between the firewall and the intake manifold.
