2001 landcruiser unable to fll fuel - fuel nozzle automatically cuts off

check that the air hose from the tank to the top of the filler pipe is not squashed or crimped by something like a zip tie. This hose allows the air in the tank that is being displaced by incoming fuel to vent at the top of the filler tube and not past the filler nozzle thereby switching it off.

Where is the fuel pump located on a 2001 ford excursion 6.8 liter Triton V-10 ??? How hard is it to replace ???

The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. You need to lower the tank in order to get at it. It is mounted on the top and you need to lift it out of the tank. It is an assembly with the fuel level and everything with it. If you are at all mechanical it's really not that difficult providing the tank isn't full of gas. Also when removing the straps to drop the tank to try not to bend them up because that makes it a real bear when installing the tank back. Did you check the fuel cut off switch as well as any fuses that go to that circuit ? Wouldn't want you doing all that work for nothing. I hope this helps and good luck.

Is it difficult to change a fuel pump on a 2001 ford taurus.and where is it located

It will be in the fuel tank. The fuel tank will need to be lowered. It is not that difficult to due but if the tank has a lot of fuel in it, it will be extremely heavy. Letting the tank get out of control will mean spilt gas which can be a fire hazard. Not to mention the fact that you will have to deal with the weight of the tank. If it drops out of the car you can easily break the fuel lines which will cause you more problems.

Help replacing fuel pump and sending unit 79 Ford Fairmont

you should have two metal bands/strapes hold the tank in place, a bolt on each end of the strapes. disconnect the fill neck, supply and return lines, the wires for the pump and sending unit. if possible get the fuel level as low as you can. gas is heavy. lift the car up as far as you can, i say 2 and a half to 3 feet off the ground. a car lift is even better. the fuel pump will be held in place with a ring, use a hammer and punch to drive the ring counterclockwise to remove. don't let any dirt go into the tank.

Ford Windstar 2001 Gas filling problem

The fule tank vent tube is blocked/clogged. It's the little hole next to the filler hose that invites spiders that clog it up. Blow out the tube and it fixes the problem.

Ford AU11 Fairmont CD Player / Radio

You need some special tools which slot in to the holes at the sides of the stereo, they release some clips and the unit slides out. Then you can take the cover off the unit and remove the jammed CD. These units are notorious for failure, especially the six disc stackers, and are probably not worth repairing, can be more expensive to repair than fitting a decent aftermarket cd player. Most audio installers or your local Ford dealer will have the tools to remove the unit, and if you just want the radio, you could remove the jammed cd and refit the stereo and just not use the cd player. You'll need to get the radio code from a Ford dealer to get the stereo going again if you disconnect and reconnect it. They may need the serial number off the unit to give that to you, and you may need to prove ownership of the vehicle.
