Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

1 Answer


Car would not restart. Had towed to shop. Coming home from vacation. Shop replaced fuel pump and by-passed the fuel delivery module. Told to have it replaced ASAP. Drove aprox. 20 miles- car started lurging and would not go over 40 MPH. Stopped at another shop along the way. They replaced the fuel delivery module and away we went. Once it missed but continued on. Aprox. 20-30 miles down the road it would not go about 45 MPH and looking at fuel consumption used almost 1/2 tank of fuel. Turned around--limped on back to shop and they can't find the problem? Any suggestions? Took car to Ford dealership this AM.
Thank you

It could mean that you have a leak and the proper amount of fuel isn't getting to the engine.

Can fuel sending connection be accessed thru trunk on 1997 buick lesabre custom

On some vehicles the FUEL PUMP can be accessed from under the rear seat without lower the gas tank. It would help to have more information about what your dealing with. I had trouble with my 1999 buick century, it wouldnt start. it ended up being a fuel delivery issue the shop i took the car to said i need a new fuel pump and sending lines, however i couldnt rationalize spending the money they were asking. I ended up fixing the fuel pump myself without spending any money. I got my infiormation from they have an expert help section, i explained my problem and they sent me a detailed tutorial with a video that made fixing my car a breeze.

2000 Camaro fuel pump/ fuel filter/ and fuel pressure regulator all replaced, still no gas getting to the motor.. mechanic is stumped, don't know what it is.. my car started getting harder than normal to...

i can tell your mech is not ASE pro. not at all.
guessing is for squids.
a pro uses his tools.
he didnt now you are broke, find a real ASE mech, and save $$$
so what was the fuel pressure.

if the pressure (generic answer) at the rails is not 30 psi
and your mech cant figure that out, fire him.
dont argue with him, just move on.
if the pressure is good at the rail and 1PSI (squirt tests are useless) then check the pumps stall shunt pressure.
if at spec the regulator is leaking.
if the pump fails the shunt test its is weak.
check for 12v key on for 3 seconds in to said pump.
if 12v dont land there, bingo now power.
sorry 8v is no good, 12 or as low as 11v lowest there, at the pump.
the pump is not running full time the ECU prevent that and the
TV crash and burn issue. it runs for 3 seconds each keyon.
some older cars, only have pump voltage cranking.
read the FSM , its all there, including all the test and all these pressures, .

sorry your mech, sux, truely ! i am sorry for you.
find the ASE badge on his /her sleeve, see that>\?
no? the Walkonbye. (pun included )

sounds like you might have damaged the fuel delivery system a lot of people dont realize just how bad running out gas is for your car it could be a number of things it could be the fuel pump, the carb or injectors not quite sure what your car has but either way the best thing to do is to take it to a shop and have them look at it
