A voltmeter measures voltage, so if your meter says there's no voltage, there's no power in the circuit at that point. Check your fuel pump fuse and electrical connection at the pump.

What tools specifically will I need to replace the fuel pump on a 1995 ford Taurus ,sockets ect also is there a way to troubleshoot to be sure it's the fuel pump that is bad?

Yes, there is! And without taking the fuel pump out. You can disconnect the power feed from the fuel pump at the tank, and connect a power source (such as a separate battery), to it, but route that power source through a current meter. If the current meter shows normal current draw, take note of the current reading, drain the fuel tank, and take a second current reading, which should be much lower because the pump is only pumping air! By the way, you can ALSO disconnect the fuel line and let that pump push the fuel out of the tank, and into a holding tank. That will also give you an idea whether a fuel filter may be clogged or clogging up! If the pump does not run at all from the alternate power source, you have found your problem!

95 astro has no spark to the coil what next

Try this tips:
1. Check the battery voltage at the battery with the digital volt/ohm meter. Set the meter to "Volts D/C" and touch the black meter lead to the negative battery post and the red meter lead to the positive post. A fully charged battery will measure 12.7 volts or more. A measurement of 12.5 volts is considered discharged, and the battery should be charged before any further testing. Any measurement below 11 volts indicates a severely discharged battery--the battery is most likely damaged and should be replaced. If the battery measures above 12.7 volts, proceed to the next step.

2. Check the starter for battery voltage by touching the red (positive) meter lead to the battery cable terminal on the back of the starter and the black (negative) lead to the chassis. The voltage reading should be approximately the same as the measurement at the battery. If the reading is lower than battery voltage, check for bad connections at the cables on the battery and the starter or ground cable.

Check for ignition switch signal at the purple wire on the back of the starter. When the key is turned to the "Start" position this wire should measure battery voltage. If the reading is less than battery voltage, or zero volts, check the fusible links (orange wires) on the back of the starter. If the fusible links are intact and not burned or broken, replace the ignition switch. If battery voltage is present at the purple wire, and the starter doesn't turn, replace the starter. If the voltage measurements at the starter are correct, and the starter cranks the engine over when the key is turned to the start position, proceed to the next step.

3. Remove the air duct attached to the throttle body, and spray a liberal amount of the carburetor spray into the throttle body. Replace the hose, and try to start the engine. If the engine starts, the fuel pump is not supplying fuel or the ignition module is not pulsing the injectors. Check the fuel pump fuse located in the under-hood fuse block. If it is good, check for power at the fuel pump electrical connector located near the rear of the fuel tank on the driver's side of the van. In the Chevy Astro van, power is supplied to the fuel pump by the the gray wire on the electrical connector when the engine is being cranked. If power is supplied, hitting the fuel tank with the flat side of a hammer while someone else is turning the ignition key to start will sometimes bump the fuel pump enough to allow it to start. If the fuel pump checks good, proceed to the next step.

4. Check for spark. Disconnect the coil wire at the ignition coil, and try to start the engine. If no spark occurs, replace the coil and ignition module. If a strong spark occurs, plug the wire back in, and remove a spark plug wire from a spark plug and repeat the test. If a spark is not present, replace the spark plug wires, and distributor cap and rotor.

Car runs great but on a cold start it has a rough idle like a bad plug or fuel filter replaced both after car is warn will start fine every time

has the engine coolant temperature sensor been checked to see that it has the correct ouput votage at the chart temps, if it is out of spec the engine can run lean and this would cause cold start issues, also what is the fuel pressure reading when key is shut off, does it drop rapidly? should never loose more than 5 PSI, if it does the fuel pump is defective, also a fuel filter will not cause hard start or rough idle, only overall loose of power, does it have that at anytime?

Gas tank stuck on empty but has gas in it.

You will need to drain fuel tank and drop it down t from tank. Remove the fuel pump and check the fuel pump sending unit. Using an ohm meter, connect the ohm meter connecters to the fuel level sending unit. Carefully lift up the float and the ohm reading should be approximately 8 ohms. Then let the float all the way down and the reading should be approximately 100 ohms. If not replace the fuel pump assembly. Hope this will help you.

Replaceing fuel pump

How to Replace a Fuel Pump
DIY & Save up to $219.24 (Complexity: Hard / Time: 3.2 hours)

1. Fuel Pump - $140.07

1. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet - $7.55
2. Floor Jack - $145.54
3. Multimeter - $247.13
4. Jack Stand Set - $36.93
5. Flat Head Screwdriver - $3.14
6. Mallet Hammer - $6.83
7. Socket Set

1 Locate the fuel pump.
- Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
2 Have a friend turn the key to the“ON” position while you listen for a high pitched hiss/whine coming from the electric fuel pump.
- Tip: If the fuel pump is located in the fuel tank, you can open the fuel cap and listen to hear the fuel pump. The fuel pump should run (priming the system with fuel) for a couple of seconds. Once it stops, you should be able to start the vehicle.
3 If the fuel pump does not make a sound (run and prime the fuel system) check to see if there is a fuse that supplies power to the fuel pump and check its location.
- Tip: Check the owner’s manual for location of the fuse box and fuel pump fuse.

4 Once you have found the location of the fuel pump fuse, remove the fuse from its housing and check to see if it is blown.
- Tip: A blown fuse will usually have a metal strip connecting both tabs that“blows out” (the wire looks as if it has been chopped in half or broken).

5 If you noticed that the fuse was blown, replace the fuse with a new fuse of the same amperage and repeat step 2.
6 If the fuel pump now works, you do not need to replace it. However, you will need to find what caused the fuel pump fuse to blow. We strongly recommend that this is done through a certified shop, unless you have the tools and knowledge to test electrical systems and diagnose more in depth problems.
7 If the fuse wasn’t blown, it should be checked for power and ground at the fuel pump. If there is power and ground present then you will need to replace the fuel pump.
- Tip: On most vehicles you may need to lower the fuel tank to access the power and ground leads for the fuel pump.

8 Siphon or drain as much fuel as possible from the fuel tank. Disconnect any possible fuel lines from the fuel tank.
9 Remove any retaining straps or bolts holding the fuel tank to the frame.
- Tip: You may be able to access the fuel pump from the bottom of the back seat or the trunk of the vehicle.

10 Using a digital multi meter, turn the key to the“ON” position and check for power at the fuel pump. Touch the negative lead from the DMM to a good ground and the positive lead of the DMM to the power cable at the fuel pump. You should have a reading that is equal to battery power. If you do not have a reading at all, you will need to inspect the power side of the fuel pump.
- Tip: With the ground lead of the DMM still connected to a good ground, touch the power lead to the positive side of the battery, to each side of the fuse, and again to the fuel pump. Wherever you notice the voltage reading goes from battery voltage to 0 you will need to replace whatever wires and fuse are in between.

11 If you have noticed that the power and ground being supplied to the fuel pump are both good, then you will need to replace the fuel pump.
- Tip: To check for a good ground, place the negative lead from the DMM to the ground side of the fuel pump, and the positive lead of the DMM to the positive side of the battery. If the reading on the DMM is battery voltage then you have a good ground.

12 Remove any retaining rings or bolts that hold the fuel pump in the fuel tank.
13 Remove any electrical connections or fuel lines connected to the fuel pump. Replace the fuel pump.
- Tip: If equipped, inspect and replace strainer as needed.

14 Use reverse procedure to install fuel pump and assemble all components back to their original state.
15 Start the vehicle to verify repairs.

Hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Fuel pump wont run

Power from the relay comes from the ignition switch. If you don't have power at the relay then its likely the switch.

Your problem is fuel gauge is hanging up on the fuel pump. The slide bar/fuel sender is located inside the fuel tank alongside the fuel pump. Today I removed my fuel tank and replaced the pick up strainer on my fuel pump and previously my fuel gauge didn't work, but all I needed to do was slightly bend the slide mechanism and my fuel reading read correctly on my gauge. Previous to that I showed no reading on the dash meter.
