Get under your gas tank and follow the lines. one of them should lead not far away from the tank where most filters are located. When you change it remember to release pressure by take loose the gas cap...and have some rags ready to catch some overflow.

SOURCE: change fuel filter 1988 ford thunderbird 6 cylinder

In the trunk left side is inertia switch.  rap ******* side with fist, causing button to pop up on top, when this happens the fuel pump will no longer receive power.  Now try to start vehicle, should attempt to start and die.  Fuel system is no de pressurized.  PLease be careful as there is still some pressure in system! and remember to reset inertia switch when done by pressing pop up button back to the down position.

SOURCE: 1986 Ford Thunderbird. Turn signal does not

Have you checked the contacts to make sure they are touching the bulb base. I have a 1995 Ford Contour that did the same thing. I took a screwdriver and bent the contacts out very slightly and it has worked fine ever since.

86 thunderbird... quit while driving.. traced it down to no fuel ... pump is good .. replaced relay ... still not engaging pump ... next step ?

Did you replace the fuel filter. Did you check the fuse? How do you know the pump is good? Just because you hear it running does not mean it is pumping any fuel. A fuel pressure test will verify if the pump is indeed good. If it is the OEM pump I would bet it has failed. It is rare for a pump to last 25 years.

Replace fuel pump in a 1986 ford thunderbird

  • hi sir how are you
  • . I believe the pump is in the tank, but it's verry easy to remove. Open the tank lid and remove the bolts on the plate around the filler tube. Dosconnect all the fuel and vent hoses and lift the plate straight up. the pump, filter and assembly are on the bottom of the **** tube.They will all come out in one piece.
