SOURCE: remove fuel pump from tank ford windstar 98

To gain access to the fuel pump, it is necessary to remove the fuel tank.

  1. Depressurize the fuel system and remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
  2. Remove any dirt that has accumulated around the fuel pump module attaching flange, to prevent it from entering the tank during service.
  3. Turn the fuel pump module locking ring counterclockwise using a locking ring removal tool or a brass drift and remove the locking ring.
  4. Remove the fuel pump module.
  5. Remove the seal gasket and discard it.

To install:
  1. Put a light coating of grease on a new seal ring to hold it in place during assembly. Install it in fuel tank ring groove.
  2. Insert the fuel pump module into the fuel tank, then secure it in place with the locking ring. Tighten the ring until secure.
  3. Install the tank in the vehicle.
  4. Install a minimum of 10 gallons of fuel and check for leaks.
  5. Install a pressure gauge on the throttle body valve and turn the ignition ON for 3 seconds. Turn the key OFF , then repeat the key cycle five to ten times until the pressure gauge shows at least 30 psi.
  6. Check for fuel leaks at the fittings.
  7. Remove the pressure gauge.
  8. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

SOURCE: Intermittent fuel pump engagement when turning key - 2001 Taurus

try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.

How to Install Fuel Pump E2296S in 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Although the link tittle is "how to install fuel pump", the video shows the steps to remove the fuel tank. First step is to drain the fuel tank of gas. You can do a search on the web " how to drain a fuel tank" If you do not have the car on a lift, and you are working on the ground. It's best to jack the car up and use jack stands. You will need a jack with a support to hold the fuel tank and lower it. A piece of wood about 2/3's the width of the tank placed between the jack and the tank will work. It is smoewhat of a tedious job so take you time.

The Fuel pump is in the tank. The only thing I disagree with in emissionwiz post is whether to drain the tank or not. Chrysler started putting drains on the tanks in 2000 to make this easier when they went to a plastic fuel tank. I would drain the tank from the drain, disconnect the wiring then drop the tank to replace the pump. This all assumes that you verified that the fuse in the interior panel is not blown and the fuel pump relay in the power distribution box under the hood is still good.

its the canister vent solenoid, if you have modified the filler neck( removed any part of it) there is a good chance your gas cap will not seal properly, causing a service engine light

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 on a 2000 taurus


inside the gas tank. you will have to remove the tank to gain access to it. Some of the tanks have a drain valve on the bottom. If you do have the drain valve, it would be easier to drain the fuel before removng the tank unless it is near empty already.

If you are unsure your pump is bad, have someone turn on the key and listen by the tank for a short 1 -2 second humming sound. If you hear the sound your pump is working, if nothing check your fuses first otherwise the pump is bad.
