Most likely the fuel pump is ok, but there is likely air in the fuel line that you need to bleed off under the hood.

It is possible that the fuel pump went bad, and the way to know is to check the fuel pressure (same place you bleed it under the hood). The fuel pump is in the tank, so it's a real pain to change.

Battery charged car wont turn over is it fuel filter


Turns over but wont start or doesn't turn over? If does not turn over check solenoid then starter,if turns over, have someone turn it over while you bang on bottom of fuel tank, if it starts your in for a pump if not you will need to start electrical diagnostics. Also does it have spark

Why is my 1996 mercury sable not starting?


Can be out of gas, blown fuel pump fuse or injector link, defective fuel pump relay, broken wire, or of course defective fuel pump. Or a number of other defective relays or switches. Or possibly the problem is in the electronics, NO spark to the plugs. First check for spark, then test fuel pressure at the engine intake area.

I have a 1985 Mercury Sable. It will run for awhile and shut down and after sitting for awhile starts back up I smell gas and wonder does the fuel filter or fuel pump needs to be changed


the fule pump is in the gas tank, if you hear it humming with the engine running, it's likely ok. Should have 40 psi if you check withg gage on scrader valve on fuel rail on engine.

93 mercury villager ran out of gas. filled with gas will not star


When you ran it out of gas you may have ruined the fuel pump. They are very touchy. you can check it by having someone listen under the car by the fuel tank and you turn the key to the on position, be sure not to try and start it. When you turn the key to the on position you should hear the pump prime its self. If you dont the pump is bad if you do then you might look into the fuel filter it may have gotten clogged when it ran out of gas.
