SOURCE: gas tank

Bypass/jumper the fuel pump relay, disconnect the supply line to the injectors and turn the key on, it will pump the tank dry in about 10 minutes if it's full. You can't siphon a newer car due to the anti-siphon design of the filler neck.

SOURCE: How do you access the spark plugs 2002 mercury mountaineer

IIRC these are a coil over design. meaning the coil is over the plug. the coil should have one 8mm bolt holding it on the lower intake manifold. remove the coild to get to the spark plugs. look by the fuel injectors, coil should be just next to it or very close. coil usually says motorcraft on it and circle in design.

good luck

Your fuel pump is in the gas tank, You should be able to hear it begin to pump with the key in the on posiiton (not start) You should hear it pump for 5 seconds.
Also replacing the fuel filter is a good idea as well.
The valve you are talking about should be tested with fuel pressure tester. It should be about 75psi.

How do i emptythe gas tank on a 2000 mercury mountaineer


Here are two ways:
You can take the filler hose off from the gas tank and put a siphon hose in there. Siphon it into 5 gallon cans.

Another way is to pull off the main gas feed line that goes from tank to the engine. Just find a convenient spot to pull the line apart, like possibly right before the fuel filter. Then you will need to activate the fuel pump to have it push the gas out. The easiest way to activate the pump is to find the fuel pump relay (under the hood in the fuse/relay block) and pull it out. Then use a short jumper wire into the two correct terminals where the FPR plugs in. This will automatically start the fuel pump and you can push all the gas out of the tank.
Most of the time, the two terminals at the FPR will be numbered 30 and 87. Look on the relay for terminal identification. You are jumping the main power feed line at the relay to the line going to the fuel pump. Do not guess, or you could damage your engine computer if you put the jumper wire in the wrong terminal. At the relay, you are jumping the power side of relay. The other terminals at the relay are for the coil side of the relay. Jump the power side!

You can't. There is a roll over valve/ball in the neck of the tank preventing a siphon hose from entering the tank

How to siphon gas out of the tank


Not exactly sure why you want to syphon gas out of the tank but on most cars now a days you can not simply stick a hose in the gas tank.The angle of the fill hose and the spring loaded flap make it virtually impossible.What you will have to do is pop the hood and unhook the fuel line.Then you will need to find the fuel pump relay under the hood as well.Then remove the relay and jump the two largest female connectors together.The last step is turn the key to the run position NOT START POSITION and the gas will pump out of the fuel line

I need to drain old fuel from gas tank


Two methods:
1. Get a siphon pump with a really long (at least 5 feet) to go in through the gas filler cap.

2. The way I did it was I disconnected the fuel line from the fuel pump assembly on the tank, attached my siphon pump hose to the fuel line and pumped it clear.

Evap system


The FSM is clear on this. each hose and fitting must be air tight.
or the the car vents gas fumes full time, and the EVAP ECU tests
(monitor) make sure this all works.
you can just look at the left and right side above rear tires. and see
if your hands are small enough to fit here. Id bet not.
some mech, report, the tank can be tilted down at front (drained fuel)
and gain access.
keep in mind, you get fuel siphoning at any time. do not open the system, with fuel in the tank, and then drive to autozone,
i loosen the gas cap so that pressure can not build in tank.
expanding fuel can push fuel out , during a filter change. very
dangerous in a garage, and you gone.
it's just a vent hose, you can see, it and what needs to be done is really obvious. given you arms sides and lenght.
my fsm states, " TANK pull"

Removal & Installation

  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure and disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the fuel filler cap from the fuel tank.
  3. Have a Class B fire extinguisher near the work area. Use a hand operated pump device to drain as much fuel through the fuel filler neck as possible.
  4. Use a siphon to remove the remainder of the fuel in the tank by connecting the siphon to the fuel pump outlet fitting.
    CAUTION Never drain or store fuel in an open container because there is the possibility of a fire or an explosion.
  5. Reinstall the fuel filler cap.
  6. Remove the rear seat cushion from vehicle (if so equipped).
  7. Disconnect the fuel pump motor connector and sending unit electrical connectors.
  8. Disconnect the wire harness grommet and harness through the vehicle floor pan.
  9. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  10. Remove the fuel filler hose clamp from the filler neck assembly.
  11. Remove the fuel breather hose clamp from the filler neck assembly.
  12. Remove the fuel filter inlet hose clamp and hose from the filter.
    NOTE A small amount of fuel may be released after the fuel hose is disconnected. In order to reduce the chance of personal injury, cover the fitting to be disconnected with a shop towel.
  13. Remove the fuel vapor clamp and hose, and fuel return hose clamps and hose from the respective fuel lines.
  14. Using a suitable transaxle jack, support the fuel tank.
  15. Remove the fuel tank retaining bolts and lower the tank.
To install:

2006 mercury mountaineer,when putting fuel in it the gas pump keeps shutting off like it full,but its not


There is a vent hose that comes from the tank back to the filler neck, it could also be the filler neck hose. Might be kinked or seperated.

How do you remove the fuel pump on a 1990 Chevy Lumina APV?


The fuel pump is in the gas tank. Drive off or siphon out as much gas as you can. You will need to remove the filler hose. Drop the tank and remove the fuel lines on the top of the tank, Turn the ring counter clock wise that holds the siphon and pump in. Once the ring is loose, lift the the siphon and pump assembly out of the tank. The pump is on the bottom of the siphon. Replace, then reverse the process.

How do I drain the fuel out of my 2000 VW Bettle


The easiest way to drain the fuel is to siphon the fuel from the tank through a small polypropylene hose inserted down the filler port. Be careful to push the metallic flap aside when inserting and removing the siphon hose, a small screwdriver with a large handle should work fine (so you can't drop the screwdriver into the gast tank). The only other way will be to drop the gas tank, but they recommend siphoning the gas out before you actually remove the gas tank straps. You will also need to disconnect the battery cables before you drop the tank to avoid any sparks from the wire connections.
