I would only sugest using replacement line no substitute. They are as expensive as some may think and will save u a lot of time, not to mention safety first.

SOURCE: Fuel Line Leak, Need Advice

Lower the tank and see what you need. It would be safer in the long run and done right. The fuel tanks are about 14 gauge and unless you just rub off the rust, there should be a concern there also. A tank can be picked up at a salvage yard for little to nothing.

SOURCE: water in gas tank and fuel lines

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A RESET SWITCH ON THE FUEL PUMP. IF YOU HAVE WATER IN THE FUEL SYSTEM THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS REMOVE IT, PHYSICALLY. DROP THE TANK, CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER, REMOVE THE THROTTLE BODY, AND GET RID OF THE WATER. AND DON'T FORGET TO BLOW IT OUT OF THE FUEL LINES.

WATER MOLECULES ARE BIGGER THAN FUEL MOLECULES AND WILL NOT GO THROUGH THE FUEL INJECTOR NOZZLES. YOU MAY EVEN HAVE TO REPLACE THE FUEL INJECTORS IF THE WATER DID DAMAGE THEM.

SOURCE: i have a 95 mercury mystique and it starts but but

THE ENGINES THROTTLE BODY HAS A TPS WICH IS CALLED A THROTTLE POSITIONING SENSOR

It has a built in reostat inside of it which can get a flat spot anywhere in its circuit explaining why your car hesitates or sounds like it is ready to stall out
'
I would replace it and have the voltage set at 1.5 volts when set at the idle position
Then it should run fine again

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!

Just bought a fuel regulator for my mercury mystique v6, bought a haynes repair manual, followed it but the fuel regulaor is not where it says it is, any ideas?


How many fuel lines are going to the fuel rail? If there is only one line that you have a later model 2000 and the system is considered return less. This means that the fuel pressure is regulated at the fuel pump before the fuel gets to the fuel rail. If there are two lines going to the fuel rail than the fuel pressure regulator has to be in between one of those lines and the fuel rail

Replacing fuel pump on 2000 mercury mystique


The most EXCELLENT thing about the Mystique and a number of Ford products, is that the fuel tank can be accessed by taking out the back seat !!!!! Yeah, that is correct, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DROP THE GAS TANK in order to get to the fuel pump.

Before we go further - be damn sure to disconnect the battery. You are dealing with gasoline. People have burned down garages, etc by getting careless. Also, to avoid having to drain too much fuel, drive it until the fuel is very low. I personally ended up buying some large gasoline cans, because my car would not even start and then siphoning off the fuel.

Once you have the back seat lifted up - I couldn't figure out how to do it correctly, so i bent a few things - there is a connector that attaches the fuel line to the pump, which is that silver metal housing that is held down by a metal collar. The fuel line is attached by a coupling that will release if you squeeze it between two fingers. Be careful not to break it by prying too hard, or you will have to go to the junkyard for another one. The is also an electrical connector to remove - it powers the fuel pump. Some cars have only one fuel line connecting to the housing, others have two. This is because there is a "no return" type pump and a "return" type pump. The "no return" is designed to keep constant pressure in the fuel line, without having to allow excess fuel return to the tank.

I cannot remember the manufacturer I purchased from, but the pump was like 100 to 120 bucks.

To get the metal collar off that is secures the housing to the tank is not easy (and why would you want it to be). If you want to spend the money, you can find a special tool to remove it. My technique was using flathead screw drivings to tap on the parts of the ring that stuck up and slowly get the thing to slide out. Take careful note of where the hose hooks up to the pump assembly before you remove it. Also remember how the electrical connector attached to the pump assembly.

I call it a pump assembly, because the pump sits down inside a kind of plastic basket that requires you to depress some plastic tabs in order to pop the top off.

Here is some history on the Mystique and Contour fuel pumps. I had some questions about the pump and its seal and how to install it etc. and so I finally e-mailed the pump manufacturer and then called when the tech who answered gave me his phone number. This guy was great. He had worked on the assembly line for 20 years (he was in the department that talks with auto mechanics, etc). He said that the filters used on these cars NEVER fit correctly into the baskets. That is why it seems like you they won't fit and you are having to cram them in to fit inside and then mash the top of the basket on. You think that you are doing something wrong. Nope, that is how they were designed. At one point, the plastic basket was redesigned, because the stuffed in filter was getting clogged up with grit because it couldn't full deploy and then the pump would wear out.

Well, the dealerships refitted anyone that brought their car in. I personally just managed to cram the basket back together and the pump has been working fine. I just cleaned the only fuel pump filter bag and re-used it, because the new one is bigger and harder to make it fit.

However, if you want the new basket, rather than buy it online, go down to a junkyard and find one. One way that the redesigned basket is different, is that it is slightly raised off the bottom of the fuel tank floor, so that there is better circulation of gasoline under the pump, where the fuel is pulled in.

Be nice to the little o-ring that makes the seal under the fuel pump housing, they only give you one new one. One reason I called the fuel pump tech is because the o-ring had swelled. He said that the gasoline will do that sometimes and that if I let it dry out, it would return to the right size. Well, I had cut it to make it smaller. At my request, he sent me two more O-rings. Good guy.

These O-rings want to slip out when you are resealing the tank, which is really aggravating. A suggestion on another site seemed to work. Put petroleum jelly under the O-ring and it will keep it stuck in its little groove while you tap the metal collar back in place.

Hope this helps.

Removing the fuel tank, the plastic clip or clamp that prevents the gas from coming out of the tank broke , what is the name of that part, it is the extention that goes into the fuel tank.1999 mercury...


go to a dealer and ask the parts guy to show you the illustrated parts breakdown of the gas tank on your car. it will be on a screen and he can print it out for you. then you will have the name, the part number and the cost. this is most likely not a parts store item, something you can get from only a ford or mercury dealer or used out of a junk yard.

Cant find the fuel pressure regulator on a 2000 mecury mystique


This vehicle is most likely a returnless system,only one fuel line to the fuel rail. If it is returnless the fuel pressure regulator is part of the fuel pump module in the tank.
