Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

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

The vehicle died after moving a few feet. The next morning did the same act. After the vehicle sat for 3 days at an automotive shope it started without an issue. I went to check it out and the vehicle started just fine. The mechanice used a hand held tester to plug into the vehicle and it spat out the code for the module but not sure since he is not a ford tech.

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.

SOURCE: 99 ford taurus will not start

buy a can of carburator cleaner, spray into duct area while cranking engine. Does engine try to start(fire)? If so, find inertia switch (button in trunk). 'reset button just by pushing it. If this switch was triped, fuel injectors or fuel pump will not operaate. If spraying carb cleaner does not help starting then fuel pressure should be checked to rule out fuel delevery problem. AS a precaution, make sure your useing the correct key(original). Security problems also shut off fuel.

SOURCE: po443 code 2002 ford taurus

That code is for the Evaporative Emissions. It could be a bad Evaporative Emissions Canister Valve or just a bad vacuum line or my granddaughter's 1997 Ford Escort had that code and her gas cap was NOT on. Now when you figure out what one it is disconnect the battery for 10 minutes to reset the computer.

It sounds like your fuel pump or pump relay died. Have a listen below the driver side passenger door in front of the rear wheel while someone turns the key to the "ON" position. You should hear a muffled whirring noise. If not, then the relay or pump has died.

The relay is located in the engine compartment in a black box in front of the power brake booster. The exact location is posted in your owners manual. Autozone or checker sells them for about $7, That should be your first step before dropping $150 on a pump that you might not need. Besides, replacing the pump requires removing the fuel tank to access the pump , and if the shop says the pump is not getting power, then most likely, it is the relay OR the mini fuse for the relay (Not the fuse on the dash panel)

LOCATION OF RELAY AND MINI FUSE

Good luck.

My 1998 ford taurus won't go unless i pump the gas pedal several times. it has a v6 dohc engine. I've tried lucas fuel injector cleaner twice but it didn't do any good.


Anything you add to your gas tank is a waste of money

You know 10 oz of anything in a fuel tank that holds
18 gallons will be diluted,common sense.

You press the gas pedal several times to get a
response. So you have a place to start,if you know
how your vehicles works.

The TPS Sensor would be a good place to start
your testing,not replacing,it could be other things.

Just go to a repair shop
