Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
There is a pump pre-filter screen, and an inline filter. Are you replacing them both? If not you MUST! Also you should service your fuel filter once a year OR MORE! For your vehicle the fuel system is a return-type system. Your pump supplies a specific volume of fuel to the injectors at a high pressure. All of that fuel is not injected into the engine, and the remainder is returned to the tank by the return line. This cycle repeats at such a rate that each tank full of fuel is passed through the filter about ten times before that tank is consumed. Fuel quality and cleanliness is vital to the health of the pump, but there is another important consideration that FEW people know... That fuel pump gets really HOT! The only thing that cools it is the fuel in the tank. If you routinely run your car at 1/4 tank or below, your pump is always above the fuel level in the tank, and it gets NO COOLING! Hot pumps have a short life! Keep your fuel level above 1/2 a tank and the fuel pump life will double, or even triple! (In your case it might last 5 times longer)
