Question about Mercury Mountaineer
Crank but wont stay running
This switch would be located in one or two places. If you have Air-ride suspension the Inertia switch is usually close to the Air-ride switch. Sometimes there is a plastic cover over the switch in the rear cargo area. The rest of the time the Inertia switch is in front by the front seat kick panels.
There is a reset button on the switch, just press and hold for a second or two and the reset is made.

Check the fuel pump reset switch again, if it is popped back out then replace that little switch in the trunk, any ford one will do. it works off a magnet and a bearing to close the circuit for the fuel pump. easy fix.

SOURCE: Truck won't stay running
if it is a electric fuel pump take the fuel line off carburator and get a three foot gas line hook it up to the gas line on the car run gas line into an empty gallon container and turn key on and see if you are getting a good flow of gas

Same problem with my 85 F-150 5.0 EFI---turned out that the fuel pump relay under the hood was teriffically corroded on the inside (I opened up the relay to look inside). When I checked the voltage at the fuel pump it would show 3.5-6 volts instead of 12 volts.
I was thinking fuel blockage or perhaps failure of the in-tank pumps. Sometimes the truck would start and run, othertimes it would neither start nor run. Typically, if running it would stay running until turned off (where the relay had to break).
Changing the green fuel pump relay fixed the problem--12 volts now at the pump and no reoccurance.
Good luck--let me know if this fixed your F-150.
