You dont need to take the drive axle out but if you do there is 2 nuts holding it in take those off and pull it should come out fairly easy, i did it without taking the shaft out only disconnected exhoust and unbolted alt from bottom and pulled it out the side.

I have a 2000 Fird Contour SVT V6, the car died while driving and lost power. now it will not start again. I already replaced the fuel pump so i need help on this

jjonas72 - I just wanted to let you know that I picked up on this one. You asked about Diagnostic Trouble Code P1237.

I missed that during our chat...P1237 is for the Fuel Pump Driver Module (FPDM) NOT the fuel pump itself. We need to talk some more.

Replace the oil filter, fill crankcase with proper amount of oil, drive car away and pray to God it was just a defective oil filter.

How "old" was this oil filter and how long ago was it supposedly replaced? Does the SVT have an oil pressure gauge (I know my non-SVT contour does not) and did you notice anything on the gauge (super-high pressure) before the filter burst?

Unfortunately, the idiot light tells you there is "NO" oil pressure, which is the condition you encountered after the filter went south.
