There is a screen filter on the fuel pump in the tank...
This one you only change when you work on or replace the fuel sending unit which can be accessed under the rear seat bottom cushion.

But, the main one is along the fuel rail running from the tank to the engine. This is the one you change....

Had new fuel pump installed in 2000 ford contour, now the gas gage doesn't work. Could it have anything to do with the way the fuel pump was installed?


Yes, chances are the float is caught on one of the baffles inside the tank, or the float could have came off inside the tank. Most likely the float is caught on the baffle.

Fuel pump is inside the gas tank and the fuel filter should be on the out topside of the gas tank.

2000 contour hesitates only at 1/4 tank of gas


My guess would be dirty fuel tank. Possibly clogged fuel pump strainer.

No communication between pcm and fuel pump.


I would first replace the fuel filter. If it still wont start check all your fuses. If still won't check your fuel pump.

1999 ford contour fuel pump removal


YOU will need the car on a hoist, doing it on the ground is almost impossiable, disconnect the filler neck at top, remove the straps, lower tank slow and disconnect wiring and fuel hoses, you need a special tool to remove the gas line retainer clips.
