On the fuel rail, metal line on top of the motor that injectors are hooked to, there should be a pressure release valve on one end of the engine. It may have a cap on it. under the cap it looks like the valve where you air up your tires. you can check for fuel pressure by turning the key on, but dont start it, for 3 seconds and off again. do this twice. Then. you can depress the center of that valve and it should spray out fuel, if the pump is working. make sure the engine is not hot and be careful not to get sprayed in the eyes, etc, Also when you turn on the key, you should be able to faintly hear the pump run for 3 seconds or so. hope this helps and BE CAREFUL!!

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus wont start

It could be bad plugs, plug wires, a bad ground will do this as well. Check to see if it has the three main things.

Spark
Air
Fuel

Anther common problem is the crank shaft speed sensor. It will cause it to not spark and not start.

Make sure you replaced the right one there are two sensor's for the coolant, one takes coolant temp and the other one runs the fans for the radiator. Both are located on drivers side of the block. 2 wire leads on each how ever both are different in sending readings to the computer.Both look just alike also. Just make sure you replaced the right one. Or replace both.

2001 Ford Taurus replaced fuel pump and filter. Engine turns but no crank. Inertia switch was down.. Turn key and hear pump makes running sounds.... No crank. Popped switch out..turned key and no sounds...


Could be a bad switch. Use a ohm meter to check each switch position. Use fuel pressure gauge to test for correct pressure. Use noid light to check for injector pulse. Check for ingnition spark.

Is there a fuel pump on a 2001 Ford Taurus or is it handled differently because of fuel injection?


Absolutely your Ford Taurus uses a fuel pump, with fuel injection the fuel pump is an electric fuel pump capable of higher pressures needed for the injectors, the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, sometimes the fuel tank has to be removed from the vehicle to service the pump, and some vehicles that I have worked on have an access panel under the rear seat to open up and access the pump that way. Good luck !

Where is the fuel pump located on a 2001 ford taurus? i recently crashed my Taurus and it wont turn on even. the battery went dead attempting to turn it on but it still wouldnt turn on. let me know if you...


Fuel pump is located inside your fuel tank.Sometimes if you have involved in an accident there is automatic shut off switch that will kill the fuel pump operations and prevent fire durring accident.Chek your manual for fuel pump shut off switch. Sometimes is located in the Trunk or in front of vehicle on driver side under dash on left side panel.
