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.

Have intermittent miss... ran seafoam through the engine no change. Seems to miss more when hot less so when cool. If I try to accelerate quickly it misses horribly but if I go slowly it's fairly smooth...

At this point it could be several things, and you'd have to do some testing to start eliminating different possibilities. Could be ignition related-coil, plugs, plug wires, ignition control module, crank sensor, cam sensor, and the associated wiring; could be gas related or the air/fuel mixture is wrong. Or more serious, it could be a mechanical problem like poor compression in one or more cylinders.
I would start with checking the fuel pressure. Borrow or rent a fuel pressure gauge and do a thorough test. Then you will know that the pump and gas delivery to the injectors is not a problem. Next you should check for any possible trouble codes in the pcm. Post back if you need the procedure to get the codes. I can provide a link.

It is nearly impossible to field test for an intermittent miss as far as the ignition system goes. Most people start with new spark plugs and new plug wires to see if that eliminates a miss. The ICM and the ignition coils can be tested at almost any parts store, usually a free service.
Maybe this will help a little, give you an idea of things to check or consider. Engine misses are caused by lack of, or wrong amount of 1) gas, 2)spark, or 3) cylinder compression.

I have a no starting problem I replaced the wires,plugs,coils,maf,ignition module,fuel filter,injectors,crank sensor,fuel pump relay,altenator,battery,oil pressure switch,Ecm

Are you getting power to the ignition module? It could be your ignition switch. I once had a 1993 Buick that would die intermittently with no rhyme or reason. Turned out to be the ignition switch. And my daughter has a 1995 Camaro that when you would start it...sometimes it would be a 2 cylinder, sometimes a 4 cylinder, and other times a 6. Still not sure how that one worked, but it was the ignition switch that is located on top of the steering column down by the firewall.

If there is no pressure at the fuel injection manifold, it indicates that the fuel pump is not being activated when you turn the ignition switch to start. This condition may be caused by a blown fuse, a bad ignition switch or wiring to the fuel pump, or a failed fuel pump. Check the fuse, then check the fuel pump by disconnecting the electrical connection at the fuel pump and applying a 12V battery source to the fuel pump. If the pump works, check the ignition switch and the wiring.

Cranks and then goes dead

First check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on and engine off if its below 32 psi replace the fuel pump and filter.If fuel pump checks out to be good then take ignition switch out and check for burned ignition switch wires and worn ignition key tumblers and ignition lock cylinder.These cars are known for faulty ignition switches and ignition lock cylinders.Ignition switch gets to hot then it won't start until it cools off.

when the car won't start. turn ignition switch off . remove gas cap and have someone turn ignition switch on without cranking the engine.listen for a hissing sound that should last for around 3 to 4 seconds, If you don't hear it the most likely problem is the fuel pump. you can further confirm this by checking voltage at the fuel pump by repeating the first step . There should be 12 volt supply for a few seconds when ignition is turned on.If voltage is present and no sound ,replace fuel pump and raplace fuel filter. Fuel pump is in gas tank. this is a very dangerous operation and suggest you bring it to a mechanic.If there is no voltage ,check the electrical plug to fuelpump as to my experience a lot of unsolved intermittent fuel pump problems could be traced to this plug.The other cause could be fuelpump relay or ECU.
