Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

FUEL DELIVERY DRIVIABILITY ISSUE

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.

Buick century 3.1 2000 security light staying on car wont crank what can that be


It's the anti-theft system . (SECURITY ) Keeps vehicle from being stolen !
Important: If the wrong ignition key is used in an attempt to start the vehicle, a Data Trouble Code (DTC) will be set and the Body Control Module (BCM) will not send a fuel enable or starter enable message to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) for three minutes even if the correct ignition is used.
The Pass-Key II?® Theft Deterrent system prevents vehicle theft by disabling the starter motor and fuel system. If the Body Control Module (BCM) dose not identify the use of the correct ignition key to start the vehicle, the (BCM) will communicate a message to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) which will disable the crank relay and fuel delivery to the engine.
When the (BCM) identifies the use of the correct ignition key (resistor pellet) to start the vehicle, the (BCM) will send a fuel enable and starter enable message to the (PCM) which will allow the vehicle to start.
Your best bet would be have it towed to a qualified repair shop !

I had my 04 Dakota towed to get repairs done an d when I got it back the gas gauge showed empty. I filled it up but could only put in 30 litres.


When you had your vehicle towed to shop for repairs, was the fuel pump the reason for failure. If so the Dodge Trucks have Fuel Pump Module in fuel tank and this assembly consists of Pump, Fuel Level sensor, Filter, reg. etc. If you were not having a problem with the gauge, this sounds like the Fuel pump module was either installed improperly or damaged during installation, My advice would be call the shop who performed the repairs or take it back to them to resolve it. Good Luck Hope this helps.

You have a Fuel Delivery Pump & a second Fuel Transfer Pump
in the fuel tank
The tank is large & under the car ,under the rear seat
Have to remove the exhaust system & drive shaft

The Fuel Pump Relay --is in the Battery Junction Box (BJB) as well
as the Fuel Pump Motor Diode

There also is a (REM) Rear Electronic Module
I recall that has a variable speed pump regulator
or whatever

There are even more players there as well

Very complicated system ,that you have no way to even
start on yourself
Doubtful even a repair shop could do much

I have a 2004 LS and all the Factory Manuals & Wiring

If you have 25 miles to drive with that serious missfiring going on, I would first try to find a repair shop closer to you. It need not be a Volvo shop. Failing that, I would have it towed. Since the towing distance may be greater than 5 miles, investigate joining a road hazard protection program first (like AAA or others). Once signed up, then have it towed under the new protection. I think you will find it cost effective to do that rather than just calling a tow truck.

I would contact the BBB about the AAA shop. They were taking advantage of you not to mention they did not warranty there work. Plus if they changed the pump they were the ones that left the clamp loose. In the future you should just take it to the shop you know and trust even if it cost you a little to have it towed there, it will be less than getting taken advantage of. It hard to find a good honest shop and it sounds like you have one so give them the business they deserve it.

If not starting U have either a fuel delivery issue or a no spark situation. Open a fuel delivery joint by the engine and turn on the ignition. If fuel squirts out the pump is fine and the hassle is with the spark. Could be bad igniter causing either no spark or a weak one.
