Humming from under gas tank resulting in dead battery, 1989 Ford

1989 Ford country Squire Wagon, V8 5 liter. Humming from under car near gas tank, resulting in dead battery. I expect that it may be the fuel pump, and believe the pump is actually inside of the fuel tank. Or could this possibly be related to a relay or frayed wire?

Thank You

    The engine died while driving. We had been smelling gasoline around the rear of the car, so when it stopped running, we found the broken plastic fitting and replaced it, but now there's no current to the fuel pump.

    We think the car's computer shut off the fuel due to the loss of pressure and don't quite know how to proceed from here since we can't find the inertia switch or the fuel pump relay.

Sounds like a fuel pump causing noise. If the noise is still present with the key off then the fuel pump relay is stuck causing the battery to die.

    The relay is under the hood near the master cylinder I think.

Trying to find where the inline fuel filter is located on a 1988 ford country squire station wagon it is supposed to be on or near the frame on drivers side


Ford had a small fuel filter up near ware the fuel line comes into the eighter the carb or fuel injector main on some fuel injucter engines . Im not sure what engine you have .But my ford use to give me a lot of problems with this filter until i cut into the fuel line and added a inline filter before it mine is an 85 . So look where the fuel line attaches to the fuel inlet its a 3 or 4 dollar part but its a vary fine mesh filter and clogs easy the older the vehicle is the more sediment you end up with in your tank .I did mine 10 years ago haven't had a problem sence Good luck

Turns over, has spark but will not fire up


The fuel pump is in the gas tank, you test it by hooking up a pressure guage to the fuel injector supply manifold, there is a port there that looks like a tire valve, you will need a fuel pressure guage, Kragen auto and other stores will loan these out, you can also open the gas cap and listen for a humming type noise when the key is first turned on, but the fuel pressure test is best.
