SOURCE: replace fuel pump on 03 Ford F350 diesel

simple : obtain replacement pump from parts provider (no used stuff)

Now help me out here: thats the year they were bolted to the pass side front of engine
and not inside the tank right? (better go look to see for sure)

using a tube wrench unscrew the fuel lines (i use large wire nuts to temp block off fuel leakage)

with a 12 mm wrench undo the two side bolts holding the pump to block

wiggle pump it should come straight off

clean mounting place on block with solvent let dry

silicone back (or use gasket that comes with pump ) of pump

apply pump to block (depending on where crank stopped you may have some tension on arm you will have to overcome to get flange to meet block )

use locktite (blue)or simmiliar thread lock on bolts retighten firmly but not hang up the dog tight

use light grease or vasolene on tube connections don't try to tighten dry

Now the fun part your diesel now has air in the fuel system

there are two ways to remove this ( hard and harder)
your choice here are both methods

loosten the fuel supply line for #8 injector ( I did not say remove) 1 full turn ought to be enough

crank engine 30 seconds only
wait 5 minutes for starter to cool down
crank engine 30 sec again
did it start but runs rough while it's still running tighten #8 injector (caution fuel under high pressure)
engine smooth out good your lucky
engine did not start yet
wait 5 minutes
crank engine 30 sec again
start yet
if so tighten #8 injector up

Now here's something I've done to my diesel to make this much less a hasstle

trace fuel line as it comes up from pump
obtain a small low pressure electric fuel pump and a two short pieces of fuel line
and a few clamps

use tube cutter and cut fuel line just before it bends to go in filter
deburr edges
slide tube and clamps over pipe (both sides)
insert pump observe flow arrrow towards filter

the wires of pump can be stretched over to #1 battery terminals

now any time you change a filter or open your fuel system for any reason
all you need do is connect pump to battery
open sharader valve on top of filter for a few min
and start truck as normal
then disconnect wires and stow away for another day

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.

03 mustang gt turns over but won't start


Try shooting some starting fluid in air cleaner housing. If car starts, then shuts off after burning off starting fluid then you more than likely need a new fuel pump. But also be sure to check fuel pump fuse and relay. Hope this helps

I have a 92 mustang lx 2.3 and it won't start. There is no fire at the plugs, and I can't hear the fuel pump kick on. The reset on the fuel pump is not popped out, so it is good. Any help woul


I would check the EEC relay and the fuel pump relay for power and ground signals first. Both circuits are controlled by the ignition key switch. The fuel pump should be powered for 3 seconds when you turn the key on.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then the problem will be on the ignition coil or distributor coil. If one of these coils are faulty the engine won't run at all. Please have it checked and replace the necessary coils to resolve the problem.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2001 mustang, 3.8L, engine turns over but will not start. what are the most probable causes.


#1 fuel pump. #2 bad fuse. #3 bad igntion coil[s]. You should be able to hear the fuel pump turn on when you first turn the key on [ not to start]. then check for blown fuse.

Engine will not start.fuel pump does not run. intermittent problem. has been getting progressively worse. have changed fuel filter. checked electrical connectors.need accurate wiring diagram. chiltons...


start by checking the fuel pump fuse and relay. will the fuel pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key to the run position? If so you may need to replace the crank position sensor. When this goes bad the engine will turn over and start, but only run for a second or two then die like its out of gas.

If you do not hear the fuel pump coming on and the fuse and relay check out good then you will have to see if there is power going to the fuel pump. if power is present at the fuel pump plug then the fuel pump is bad
