Question about 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII

1 Answer

What could cause me to not get fuel pressure when the key is on but engine not runnning?

I have a 1994 Lincoln Mark 8 and I get no fuel pressure at all with the key on but engine off... Ive found that it should be 35-45lbs. I do however get 35-45 lbs as I should when the vehice is running. Should I replace the fuel pump... Or could it be something else? Im told it has to be the pump but I believe it could also be an injector leaking or maybe possibly the incorrect or bad gas cap.. Can I rule either of these out?

It sounds like your fuel pump is bad. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank.

This is usually how it happens with Electric Fuel pumps. They either work or they don't. When you turn the ignition to on you should hear the pump engage and pressure up. If you don't most likely your pump is faulty. You mentioned that it did this after a freeze. It is possible that you have a frozen fuel line, Supply or return, will also cause this problem. The best you could do is move the vehicle into a garage and warm it up above freezing to allow the lines to thaw. A lot of time we get moisture build up in a tank without even knowing it. Cold fuel is supplied to the motor through the pump but the return line returns warm fuel and in a cold environment this will or can cause condensation to form in the tank and lines. Also bad fuel from a station will cause this issue. It doesn't take much with all the additives they put in fuel today. They sell fuel additive that will remove this moisture if that is the problem. try warming the vehicle up and thawing the lines. If this proves to be the issue you'll need to drop and drain the tank and lines to clear the problem or try a fuel additive to remove the moisture.

Hi i have a '95 lincoln mark 8, and recently i have had problems starting my car, it tries to start but wont crank over, but i only have this problem some times, the past couple of days i have'nt had any...

two things to check, when was the late time you had a tune-up done ??? next, get a fuel pressure tester. hook up to the fuel rail. key on, engine off, pressure could be at least 35 - 45 PSI. get a hanes manual #59010. it will help you troubleshoot. fuel filter is a good place to start. should replace filter every 2 years.

Changing fuel filter on 1994 Lincoln Mark 8

When I replaced mine, i had to use a fuel line removal tool. You can usually find them at any Autozone, or equilvant. I modified it slightly with a grinder to put a edge on it to make it easier, however a stock one should work just fine. It's not easy to remove, and it will take some force, and patience, but after it's removed it takes all of 5 min to put the new one in. Hope this helps
