2005 Lincoln Town Car suffering from low fuel pressure, I have Changed Fuel Rail pressure sensor, Fuel Pump driver, the fuel pump in the tank and the fuel filter but it is still showing only 26 psi fuel...

The ford spec listed in the ford engine control manual is:

General Specifications Item Specification Fuel tank capacity 71.9L (19 gal) Fuel Pressure Hot restart 448-482 kPa (65-70 psi) Key ON Engine OFF (KOEO) 140-415 kPa (20-60 psi) Key ON Engine Running (KOER) 170-280 kPa (25-40 psi)

Are you measuring the fuel pressure with a mechanical gauge or are you using a scan tool . If with a mechanical gauge, does the gauge have an air purge? What symptoms does the vehicle present. If running rough you could have a fuel injector leaking. Are you measuring the fuel pressure with the key on engine off? If so, did you cycle the key a few times? Good luck

Our 91 Lincoln works great but we recently had to change the EGR and like i said it runs great. . . but then a couple of weeks later, when i accelerate it starts to tremble( kinda sluggish). What's wrong...

It could be that you have picked up a batch of dirty fuel that has clogged the gauze input filter that is part ot the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.

1996 Town Car.The fuel gauge reads CO after the car runs for about a minute. Initially it reads 13 gallons, but after a minute the fuel level readout turns to two bars on the top and bottom and CO is...

The owner's manual addresses this problem. It tells you to take it to a dealer for repair. The problem is most likely the fuel gauge sending unit which is located in the fuel tank and is mounted just above the fuel pump. It is probably sticking at the level that it was at for so long. It can be replaced by raising the rear of the car and accessing the fuel pump and sending unit from under the car behind the rear axle. Disconnect the two fuel lines and unplug the wire harness and remove the lockring with a hammer and screwdriver. Lift and turn the fuel pump assembly out for inspection and/or replacement . THE FUEL TANK DOES NOT HAVE TO BE REMOVED. I have done this many times.
