Part of the fuel pump assembly and a bit of a pain. You have to drop your gas tank.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump in 2002 Mercury Sable

it is in the gas tank you have to drop the tank and it goes down in the top although i would locate the filter on the frame rail first and replace it its cheaper and i reccomend you replace it anyway with a pump change

SOURCE: 05 mercury sable check engine po174

You has a vacuum leak on the engine.

In order to troubleshoot this, you must start with a clean engine wipe down.


The major offender parts are


air intake gasket on the manifold

air tube after the mass air flow sensor

rubber seal under idle air control IAC motor

===

Warm up the engine for 15-20 minutes (LEAVE THE engine at idle) then spray a little Barmen carburetor clear on the potential air leak location (ONE AT A TIME) and listen for a surge in rpm.

If the engine speed go higher that's mean the carburetor clean (ADDITIONAL FUEL) got into your engine and that's the gasket you need to change.

There may be multiple leaky spots so take your time and check all rubber gaskets,sensor and hose that are lead into the intake manifold.

When you finish fill up with one tank of Chervon to clean out the injectors.

Please post more information after your inspection.

1990 mercury sable gas gauge won't work is there a fuse regarding the gas gauge also airbag light always flashing I want to fix it myself is it possible


Go to this link and read on it.The fuse you are looking for is probably under the hood possible relay. fuel pumps tend to get wires corroded and that will also cause the gauge not to work.The fuse you are looking for is actually mounted on the combined instrument assembly, top/back side. I personally have never looked for it before now, but the wiring diagram shows it there. The problem is that it feeds all of the gauges and lights in the cluster. If the fuel gauge is the only one affected, I would target an actual sending unit fault, rather than the instrument cluster. It's not uncommon for cars of that age to have corroded wiring going into the sending unit

Not sure what your asking but the fuel gage sending unit is in the gas tank. Most problems with fuel gages that read incorrectly are there. It may need to be replaced.

What kind of gauge do you use to check your air con gas


Use 134a ac gauges,this is a set one gauge reads the low side pressure,the other gauge reads the high side reading,witch,if read correctly,the gauge,as a set will tell everything about the ac system,and what is going on inside the system.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you

Fuel gauge not working all the time.


This is a normal concern.
The instrument cluster uses 4 different operating modes to calculate the fuel level:
Anti-slosh (default mode)
Key OFF fueling
Key ON fueling
Recovery
After a fuel fill up, the time for the fuel gauge to move from empty (E) to full (F) ranges from 2 seconds to 55 minutes depending on which operating mode the fuel gauge is in.
The default fuel gauge mode is called the anti-slosh mode. To prevent fuel gauge changes from fuel slosh (gauge instability due to changes in fuel sender readings caused by fuel moving around in the tank), the fuel gauge takes approximately 55 minutes to go from empty (E) to full (F).
The key OFF fueling mode (2 seconds to read empty [E] to full [F]) requires 3 conditions be met:
The key must be in the OFF position throughout the entire refueling of the vehicle.
At least 15% of the vehicle's fuel capacity must be added to the fuel tank.
The instrument cluster must receive a valid key ON fuel sender reading within 1 second of the key being put into the RUN position. The key ON sample readings are considered valid if the fuel sender reading is between 15 ohms ± 2 ohms and 160 ohms ± 4 ohms.
If these conditions are not met, the fuel gauge stays in the anti-slosh mode, which results in a slow to read full (F) event.
The key ON fueling mode (approximately 90 seconds to read empty [E] to full [F]) requires 3 conditions be met:
The transmission is in PARK (P).
The key is in the RUN position.
At least 15% of the vehicle's fuel capacity must be added to the fuel tank.
In key ON fueling mode, a 30-second timer activates after the transmission is put into the PARK (P) position (automatic transmissions). When the 30-second time has elapsed and at least 15% of the vehicle's fuel capacity has been added, the fuel gauge response time is 90 seconds to read from empty (E) to full (F). When the transmission is shifted out of PARK (P), the fuel gauge strategy reverts to the anti-slosh mode. The key on refueling mode prevents slow to read full events from happening if the customer refuels the vehicle with the key in the RUN position.
Recovery mode is incorporated into the instrument cluster strategy to recover from a missing fuel level input during a refueling event. Missing fuel level inputs result from intermittent opens in the fuel sender or its circuits. Recovery mode (empty [E] to full [F] approximately 20 minutes) is initiated when the following 2 conditions are met:
The instrument cluster is in the anti-slosh (default) mode.
The actual fuel level in the tank is greater than what is being displayed by the fuel gauge
