Mercury sable 1996 changed fuel filter had brown gas in it did this ruin fuel pump. Can hear pump when trying to start car

Most likely the fuel pump is ok, but there is likely air in the fuel line that you need to bleed off under the hood.

It is possible that the fuel pump went bad, and the way to know is to check the fuel pressure (same place you bleed it under the hood). The fuel pump is in the tank, so it's a real pain to change.

Why is my 1996 mercury sable not starting?

Can be out of gas, blown fuel pump fuse or injector link, defective fuel pump relay, broken wire, or of course defective fuel pump. Or a number of other defective relays or switches. Or possibly the problem is in the electronics, NO spark to the plugs. First check for spark, then test fuel pressure at the engine intake area.

I have a 1995 Mercury Sable. I'm thinking it needs a fuel pressure regulator. What would the vehicle do if it needed this part?

It would not supply the injectors the correct fuel pressure
and you would have what is called, drivability issues
