SOURCE: how to relieve the pressure on the fuel system in

look for the fuel rail, it should be the chrome pipe that runs between all of the injectors, there should be a plastic cap that you can unscrew and under it should be the pressure check port, it looks like a regular tire valve, with the ignition key OFF push the valve in and the fuel pressure will be released, fuel will also be released so be sure you have a rag handy, and don't look into the valve when you push it

use the pressure test port on the top of the engine, it is on the fuel rail that supplies fuel to the injectors, looks like a tire valve, will have a plastic cap on it.

Start the engine, then remove the fuel pump fuse. When the engine quits, the pressure will be fairly low.

How do you replace the fuel pump in a 1997 Ford thunderbird?

Electric Fuel Pump REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Non-Supercharged
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Remove the fuel tank and place it on a bench.
  3. Remove any dirt that has accumulated around the fuel pump retaining flange so it will not enter the tank during pump removal and installation.
  4. Turn the fuel pump locking ring counterclockwise and remove the locking ring.
  5. Remove the fuel pump and bracket assembly. Remove and discard the seal ring. To install:
  6. Clean the fuel pump mounting flange, fuel tank mounting surface and seal ring groove.
  7. Apply a light coating of grease on a new seal ring to hold it in place during assembly and install in the seal ring groove.
  8. Install the fuel pump and bracket assembly carefully to ensure the filter is not damaged. Make sure the locating keys are in the keyways and the seal ring remains in the groove.
  9. Hold the pump assembly in place and install the locking ring finger-tight. Make sure all the locking tabs are under the tank lock ring tabs.
  10. Rotate the locking ring clockwise until the ring is against the stops.
  11. Install the fuel tank in the vehicle. Add a minimum of 10 gallons of fuel to the tank and check for leaks.
  12. Install a suitable fuel pressure gauge on the valve on the fuel rail.
  13. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to ON for 3 seconds. Repeat this procedure 5–10 times until the pressure gauge shows at least 35 psi. Check for fuel leaks.
  14. Remove the pressure gauge, start the engine and check for leaks. prev.gif next.gif

How do i use the fuel filter installation tool for 94 thunderbir

Be sure to relieve the fuel system pressure first.

Snap the tool over the fuel line and push it into the fitting to release the locking fingers.

Once both fittings are released grasp the fuel hoses, one at a time, and pull them straight off the filter.

Watch out for fuel spillage.

Where is the fuel filter in a 1994 t-bird V-6

Under vehicle, passenger side, below seating area, passenger side of transmission, mounted on frame in fuel line.

Be sure to relieve the pressure on the fuel line before separating line. On the fuel rail, in the engine compartment, above the fuel injectors, you will find a schrader valve. It looks like the air valve on your tires, with a plastic cap.

Also, you will need a fuel line disconnect tool to separate the fuel line from the pump. You can get this from any parts store.
