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.

FUEL FILLER PIPE DIAMETER? i just bought a 99 cougar, needs a new fuel filler tube to pas inspection. the part new cost 350, and i dont have that kind of cash. so im going to rig a fuel filler hose onto...


Is the actual filler tube rusted or busted? If so just get a new one from the junkyard, Id not recommend you rig it with a piece of hose for a lot of reasons.

Now if your talking about the little piece of hose that connects the filler neck to the tank, you just need to measure it, and or bring the hose into a parts store. They usually do those hoses in millimeters.

2004 mercury sable gas go's into tank real slow


This is caused by an obstructed filler air pipe vent, this keeps the air from coming out of the tank as you fill, this causes the filler nozzle at the station to shut off as the gas backs up in the filler pipe, the air vent pipe is either kinked or blocked in some way. The vent tube runs down along side the gas fill tube and is all one part, replace it.

I am trying to syphon gas from my 99 Cavalier with a fluid transfer pump.when I run the hose down the filler neck I meet resistance and try to pump only getting small sprays of gas.Do the '99 model's have...


Yes, virtually all cars have them these days. You will not get any fuel out of the filler cap. There are some places you might get access to the tank contents like the outlet to or from the pump, the rubber connector that connects the filler pipe to the tank or the fuel pump if it is mounted in the tank and is accessible under the back seat.

Where is the fuel pump on a 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7 and how di get to it?


It's inside the fuel tank. Access is on top. Remove tank. 2 straps hold it in place.

Removal
  1. Relieve fuel system pressure as described under Fuel System Pressure Relief.
  1. Drain fuel from the fuel tank as described.
  1. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  1. Remove the exhaust system as required. Refer to Section 09-00.
  1. NOTE: The connections for the rear fuel supply return and vapor tube (9S278) to the fuel pump module are on top of the fuel tank and are inaccessible. They must be disconnected with the fuel tank partially lowered from the vehicle.

    Disconnect fuel tank to filler pipe hose (9047) and vent hoses connecting the fuel tank filler pipe (9034) to fuel tank. Disconnect one end of the vapor crossover hose at the rear over the driveshaft (4602).
  1. Place a safety support under the fuel tank. Remove the bolts from the fuel tank support straps (9092). Take care not to deform the fuel tank or fuel tank support straps. Fuel tank capacity and/or fuel pick-up may be adversely affected.
  1. Partially remove the fuel tank and disconnect the rear fuel supply return and vapor tubes at push connect fittings using Fuel Line Disconnect Tool Set T90T-9550-S. Disconnect electrical connector from the fuel pump module.
  1. Remove fuel tank from the vehicle.

I am trying to sifen old gas out of 1997 Mercury Sable that has been sitting for 3years to replace gas befor trying to start. I have a hose small enough to fit down fill pipe but stop befor entering tank?


There is a flap in the filler tube that won't allow a hose into the tank. I would disconnect the fuel line and jump the fuel pump relay and run the pump to drain the gas.

Need Fuel Filler Pipe for Mercury Cougar prior to 1999


You can find that part in any junkyard. Plus, you can also order part from any Ford/Mercury/Lincoln dealer. Check auto parts stores to see if they can order the part as well.
