Although there are a few other solutions, the most likely one is the system is airlocked. What that means it that an air bubble was trapped around the fuel pump, and the pump cannot move the air. Your best bet is to bleed the system. The easiest way to do this is to disconnect the outlet on the pump until you see fuel coming out. After that you reconnect the line and all should go well. Good luck and I hope this helped.

Hi , I have a 96 Lincoln town car and I'm having a problem with it , it cranks and cranks and cranks and I have a had time turning it on and I have changed the fuel pump , fuel filter and its still...

check your spark. If you have spark check your fuel to see if the pump is working. If there's no spark, check your distributor cap. If there's no fuel check your fuel pump relay and also the emergency cutoff switch on the drivers side in the trunk behind the carpet, make sure its pushed in.

Yes, it is mounted on top and inside the fuel tank. Look for an access panel above the fuel pump inside the vehicle. If there is none then you will have to remove the fuel tank in order to replace the fuel pump. Make sure to install a new fuel filter if applicable. Before removing the fuel pump, replace the filter, check the fuse, and fuel pump relay. You can hear the pump run for a few seconds after turning on the key without starting the engine. Open the fuel filler door and remove the fuel cap. Have someone turn no the ignition, and listen for the pump. Even if you hear it run that does not mean it is ok. It may be very weak.

Locate fuel filter, and safety switch to fuel pump

The filter is located at the rear seat, you have to remove it first, then you will see a cap attach with some screws. Inside that cap you`ll find the fuel filter. Before you change the fuel filter you have to release the fuel pressure first. To do that, first find the FUEL PUMP RELAY in the main fuse box located in the engine. Once you located open the fuel door and take off the cap and leave it open. Start the engine, take off the FUEL PUMP RELAY and leave the engine stop itself, when this occurs turn off the key, the you can take off the filter and changed it
