Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Will a fuel pump driver module cause a taurus to die like the fuel pump went out then start again without an issue?

At first the vehicle acted like the fuel pump was going out. The vehicle started then died after a few feet. The next morning the vehicle started and died again. The vehicle sat for a few days while waiting to be looked at. The mechanic said the vehicle started fine and drove. I got into the vehicle which did start and drive but the engine light came on. Using a hand held tester it showed the driver pump may be the problem.

Yes a fuel filter can cause the problem but I would say it's most likely the fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn on the ignition?

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

SOURCE: 2005 ford ranger fuel pump relay gets hot and engine dies

Like Laurie Mack said. It is the inertia switch below the glove box. Here is some funny information. DON'T change the fuel pump first. Interesting fact: I bought the new inertia switch from Ford and the install instructions that came with it said to install the switch in the protected area to the right where the fuses are. It is like Ford knows it was a dumb place to put the inertia switch, but they won't let you know until after you buy a new one. I have read at least 20 other people on here that had the same problem I just had.

SOURCE: Dies after running about 2 minutes

It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

What causes engine to die while driving down the highway?


Normally the 1st thing that comes to mind is a broken timing belt. But the taurus has a timing chain. First of all, are you SURE it is not out of gas? That said, a faulty camshaft position sensor will cut off your fuel. If you find the shrader valve (like a tire valve) on the fuel rail and depress the pin with a small screwdriver or similar, fuel should spray out. If it doesn't, your fuel pump could be faulty, or the fuel pump driver module. There is a fuel pump inertia (reset) switch in the trunk. Try pushing that. Could be a lot of things. Check if you have fuel. If there is fuel in the rail, check your oil and smell it. If your oil smells like fuel, you most likely have a spark problem. Also, if you put your foot to the floor for very long, the control module may turn off fuel pump. Have someone scan your computer. If it overheated, you could have bigger issues. HEAT KILLS ENGINES.

Why does my 94 buick stops running for no reason, acts like it is running out of gas


Could be anything electrical. A weak relay, the coil pack or ignition module, and so on.
You'll need to figure out what is loosing electrical power when it fails to start to know what to test. You might start with the fuel pump relay.

I have a Kia Sedona van 2002 . I stoped to fill it up with gas but i left it running after i filled it up full the van started acting funny and died. I started it back up ran alright then the rpms go up...


First and first most: NEVER fill your vehicle up with gas while it is running. Not only is this terrible for the vehicle, causing the fuel pump to over work, but it is also a serious safety hazard.

Now that the lecture is over, on to your problem! Chances are filling up your tank while the vehicle was running DID in fact cause the issue. I'd be looking towards both of your fuel filters. The filter on the frame rail (referred to as an "inline fuel filter"), and the strainer filter on bottom of the fuel pump. Either one of them could have sucked up some gunk when the fresh gas hit the tank and loosened up some gunk.

Fuel filters often cause problems like this. Either one of them can become clogged with particles and quit allowing fuel to flow through properly. After the vehicle sits for an hour or two, the "gunk" has time to settle, only to be disturbed by the movement of fuel after the car runs. Change the inline fuel filter (which can be done by someone with limited experience or knowledge), and if that doesn't take care of the problem, have a professional replace the fuel pump/strainer filter (sometimes the strainer is built into the pump and you have to replace the whole module assembly). Good luck!

Will a fuel pump driver module on a 2002 ford taurus v6 dohc make the vehicle act like the fuel pump is going out?


This could indeed be the fault. If the vehicle does not restart after this issue occurs, then disconnect the fuel line and test for pressure. If low, then replace the fuel module and/or pump.

Listen TFI module is more than likely the problem change it. TFI module controls spark and timing and fuel. Keep one with you in the car. The module is getting hot and not working right.

95 taurus stalls out when temperature exceeds 102. The temperature gage seems to be in the normal range , when this occurs. Once car has cooled off, it drives fine. I have read that the 95 Taurus has had...


your evaprative emissions could be purging into the engine at that point too, giving too rich a mixture.

here's what you are referring to:

ISSUE: A reduced power, hesitation, stalling at low vehicle speed, idling and/or a no start condition may occur on some vehicles in hot ambient temperatures and/or high altitudes. In addition, a no start may result while the engine is still hot and the vehicle has been parked for a short period. A stall may also occur when moving the vehicle from idle. This may be caused by a lack of vapor ports in the fuel pump, resulting in a vapor lock condition or internal high wear of the fuel pump components due to tank contaminants.
ACTION: Perform normal diagnostic routines as described in the appropriate year Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis Manual (PC/ED). If the condition still exists after all diagnostics are followed, replace the fuel pump with a new turbine fuel pump. Refer to the following Part Application Chart for correct part usage. Also, replace in-line fuel filter with a new filter (E7DZ-9155-A). The new turbine fuel pump will reduce the possibility of vapor lock in high ambient temperatures. Refer to the appropriate model/year Service Manual for removal and installation procedures.

Vehicle just keeps cranking wont start.


Make sure that your fuel presure is up to at least 60 psi if not that could be your problem. If not, make sure you are getting spark, if not could be your Crank sensor or ingniton module ECM. Usually if your Engine control module wouldn't be bad because of your fuel pump is working, but may not be putting out the proper pressure for the fuel system. Fuel Pumps are a Problem with that year..
