Yes, there is! And without taking the fuel pump out. You can disconnect the power feed from the fuel pump at the tank, and connect a power source (such as a separate battery), to it, but route that power source through a current meter. If the current meter shows normal current draw, take note of the current reading, drain the fuel tank, and take a second current reading, which should be much lower because the pump is only pumping air! By the way, you can ALSO disconnect the fuel line and let that pump push the fuel out of the tank, and into a holding tank. That will also give you an idea whether a fuel filter may be clogged or clogging up! If the pump does not run at all from the alternate power source, you have found your problem!

    Very helpful I will try this tomorrow is there any specific way to connect said power source ? And if the fuel pump is bad do u know the tools needed for this specific model by chance or how to find out? I ask because my current situation is i have no tools and have someone bringing me the ones I will need. Know the basic things like jack and jackstands flatheads and lubricants but not the more then that .

    As for myself, I keep a top post battery around, just for emergencies, such as jump starting a car. I cannot tell you what specific tools to use on a 1995 Ford Taurus, because I don't specialize in Fords ... or any other brand, for that matter. But I have been a mechanic for over 50 years! As to connections, I usually use either insulated alligator clips, or an original type connector cut off a similar model in a do-it-yourself salvage yard. But I do keep an un-dedicated set of battery terminals on my spare battery, which makes it easy to connect to the small terminal bolts instead of the big battery posts. By the way, I suppose you know that if the pump must be replaced, the fuel tank will probably have to be taken down, if not taken completely off the car. Make sure you block the front wheels from rotating either direction while you have the rear end jacked up pretty high! And disconnect the battery before you start loosening the tank. You DON'T want any electrical sparks with the tank open!

SOURCE: Intermittent fuel pump engagement when turning key - 2001 Taurus

try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump relay on the 95 ford taurus

Hello , fuel pump relay location is in the relay box by the radiator. The fuel psi regulator is on the fuel rail itself. The regulator looks like a small disk about 1.5inchs in dia. It will have a vacuum line running to it.

Replaced both heads, getting feul and spark but doesnt seem to want to start

If you are getting fuel (good quality fuel) and spark, there is not much left. Make sure you have the timing right. Make sure the Cam Shaft Syncronizer is correctly installed. There is a special tool needed to time this engine correctly. Hope this helps. Cobra

Either the fuel pressure regulator is defective or the fuel pump is on its way out. Either way bring it to a repair shop fuel checks are dangerous and this type of repair is beyond a DIYer.

I have a 2000 ford taurus and need to replace my water pump. I need to know how easy of a fix. can I back yard this problem. what are the steps I need to take. All input would be helpful. Thanks

I would first suggest getting a repair manual for your vehicle. I did a 1995 Taurus with a Haynes manual.Very inexpensive about 20 dollars. Save by doing it yourself. Basic hand tools are all you need.
