SOURCE: running fine then now wont start, fuel pump or

More likely the fuel pump.........check for power to the pump on the gray wire at the fuel pump connector at the tank.(wires from the tank)You should see a prime cycle voltage as you turn the key on...if the key has been off 15 seconds. If you see a test light, light.......change the fuel pump.
Tip....a lot of relays are the same in the relay center....switch the fuel pump relay for one of the (same) others to test it if needed.

Before you do this....sit in the car and turn on the key to run.....not you hear the pump do it's prime cycle?
Total silence 99% of cases...a new fuel pump is needed.
If you hear pump should be needed....look elsewhere first.

Releaving the pressure does not mean run all the fuel out of the lines. Thats actually a bad idea. All you need to do is remove the gas cap. Hook up your guage. Turn the key to the on position wait for the fuel pump to cycle. Turn the key off. Press the pressure relief button on your guage. Reinstall the gas cap. Then turn the key back on and check the pressure reading. If you need any more help just post.

Fuel pump wont shut off. It sounds like it goes thru normal cycle and it is like it shuts half way off when turning car off. I pulled tank and pump did find a short, I fixed it, BUT, after hooked battery...

Check the fuel pump relay. Unplug it the next time you have this problem and check for power (12vdc +)at all of the four terminals--only one should have power when the key is off. If this is the case the trouble is probably the relay itself. If two of the terminals have power, then the relay is likely find and you have to look further to find the source of the problem.

Engine over revs at initial start up without touch accelerator. Shut down and restart, sometimes problems goes away.

it all depends on what yr the ford is b/c my grandmas car dose it a lot when you go to shut the car off make sure it is in park and it is in a idle then when you start it it should be fine if not go under the hood and see if it accelator can be lossened a littel bit if so it will save you on gas and the idle wont be as high. if that dose not work then dont worrie about it it wont harm the car any and dont pump the gas pedall while the car is not running
