Fuel pump location for 1996 Mustang 3.8L - 1996 Ford Mustang

    Hi, On a 1996 Mustang with a 3.8 , the fuel filter is located just above
    the rearend assy on the body on the car. Obviously safety first, jack
    the vehicle and make sure its secure and blocked to prevent being
    crushed and make it unable to roll away. You'll need atleast a short
    flathead screwdriver to remove the old filter and if you can, use
    safety goggles to keep dirt and possibly fuel out of your eyes would be
    a plus. On both the inlet and outlet fuel lines on the filter there is
    a plastic clip that has to be removed first, becareful not to break
    them in some cases they may not be included with the new fuel filter.
    Once the clips are removed the lines should come off fairly easy with
    some slight prying or wiggling (DO NOT DAMAGE THE LINE CONNECTORS !!)
    Also, becareful of fuel spray because there is pressure in the lines,
    as some of us may already know there can be a little to ALOT of
    pressure and having fuel washed eyes is no fun, have a pan or something
    around to help catch the dripping fuel. After the lines are removed
    there is a large clamp wrapped around the filter loosen it up and slide
    the filter out of the retaining bracket, it will slide out only one way
    and you may have a fuel line in the way keeping you from removing to
    filter if that is the case, #1 you can either unbolt the bracket to
    help lower it enough to remove the filter or #2 simply pull down on the
    bracket to bend it slightly downward so that removal is easy. Remember
    which way the filter came out so that you don't put the new filter on
    backwards, fuel flow travels only one way if you put it on backwards
    the car will not run or if it does it won't run well at all. To
    reinstall just reverse the process. Good Luck.

Smell gas aftr driving


Was the fuel pump recently replaced? If so, the smell is coming from the seal where the fuel pump seals to the gas tank. It's a large o-ring and if not put in properly you get the gas odor.

I have a 96 ford mustang 3.8 v-6. what is the fuel pressure on the pump supposed to be?


fords fuel pumps are mesured in LPH (litres per hour) rather than pressure. I believe your pump should be rated for 155LPH. It is very common to upgrade these fuel pumps to something higher volume when they fail or to accommodate higher horsepower mods.

How do you reset the fuel pump circuit on 1996 mustang


Open the trunk, the reset switch is behind the drivers side tail light, or inside the rear fender area, behind the interior trunk liner. There should be a small place to put your finger through the trunk liner to reset it, without taking anything apart.
