Will it crank at all? if its cranking there are three main things that make an engine run... fuel, air, spark. check spark by pulling a plug and keeping it plugged into the wire and holding the threaded part of the plug to a good ground(any bare metal on your engine will work) hold the spark plug wire boot with a pair of insulated pliers or a pair of gloves while doing this! have someone crank the engine while you do this. if you have spark you should see it jumping from the plug through the gap. if you are getting spark then check fuel delivery by cranking engine for a few long seconds then pulling a plug to see if it is wet with gas. i hope this helps

it is on the fender near the battery and is also referred to as the starter solenoid (if you follow the large wire from the positive terminal of the battery at the other end will be your relay/solenoid)
hope this helps!

SOURCE: how can i change fuel filter in my grand marquis

you will need the proper Quick Disconnect tool, Look on the Frame rail for the filter, remove filter from the spring type retainer, remove the safety clips on the lines but not remove them completely, insert the disconnect tool & push into the fitting of the fuel line, push line & tool into eachother then pull filter away from line, if not done properly you will have a big problem putting the line back on

SOURCE: 1996 grand marquis no start no gas out of fuel

There is a switch in the trunk. It is usually on the drivers side. It is an Inertia switch and it has a button you press to reset it.

This Inertia switch is a safety item and sometimes they work when a trunklid slams or a door closes just the wrong way.

You could have blown a fuse although there is usually a reason for it. The owners manual shows the placement and size of the fuse. If you can not get the fuel pump to work, then most likely it is bad.

I hope it is only a matter of resetting the Inertia switch in the trunk.

Definately needs inspection and service. Sounds undercharged with refrigerant. Low charge may also cause noisy compressor. Good luck
