Question about 1983 Mercury Grand Marquis
I have repace the spark plugs and fuel filter on my dad's 1998 grand marquis. The car ran about 2.5 months before but has never been started since I started replacing the spark plugs and fuel filter. It does crank over but I have zero fuel pressure. I do not hear a noise when I turn the key on. Not a 5 second hum or nothing. When replacing the fuel filter I had my father turn the key in the ON postion mutilple times and NO gas came out - at all! After checking the power going to the pump, I believe that the pump has froze since he last used the car last(about 4 or more months). MY QUESTION: Is it nessary to drop the fuel tank when replacing the fuel pump? I can see the fuel pump assembly right behind the rear axle. It looks pretty accessible if I jack and support the car or have a car lift. Is this true?? Please let me know. Thanks.
So you have power there, why not try a little whap with rubber hammer near it while key on to see if it will do anything. I;d try it just to see if it will come back to life.
