It is not to difficult, you have to remove the two straps that hold the tank on and there are two nuts that you have to loosen with a deep well socket ad then you have to remove the fuel tank filler which requires a screw driver or not driver and removing the filler tube and overflow tube then drop the tank down mark and disconnect the wires and fuel line and that’s it. How every I would like to know why your changing it, then don't normally go bad and can be fixed with epoxy if it has a leak that you can get to.

Good day,What is the easiest and effective way to diagnose and repair a petrol pump on the 1996 ford escort 1.4i hatch?


dont think the 1996 fuel pump "get to" is under the back seat

looks like the fuel pump and sender is on fitted top of the fuel tank
under the car
if so tank has to be removed completely

lots of work
better to budget for a new fuel pump

if you cant hear the fuel pump

with care
drop off the fuel filter line or
drop off the fuel line to the injector rail
and see if fuel gets pumped while you crank
or
paper clip wire the relay positive and negative pins only
or change relay

if you can hear the relay click
faulty petrol pump

L have an escort mk6,l have a full tank of petrol,today l notice there is a smell of petrol by the tank


In most cases like this, the petrol tank was over-filled (petrol was "nursed in" and saturated the fuel vapour charcoal canister. It may take some time for the canister to dry enough and rid the apparent fuel vapour smell. If not, you may want to consider changing the charcoal canister.

You also may want to check for leaks or loose fittings from the filler nozzle to the tank as well.

I hope this helps! :)

The easiest way to find fuel filters is to start at the petrol tank and work forwards some put them just infront of the petrol tank others are just befor the engine bay you should be able to follow you fuel lines from either end and it should be about 1.5 feet from motor or just after tank
