Does the car start and idle?

If so, replace the fuel filter - being you put in a new pump, then filled the tank, driving to the station may have caused seditments to get into the filter and plug it up.

Also, find your MAS (mass airflow sensor) and with car running, tap on it with a screwdriver handle (or small tool) -- if the car dies, or stalls, (idle fluctuates; more so than while just idling); you can first purchase MAS spray cleaner - remove, spray inside (honeycome) generously, let air dry for 15 or 20 minutes; install and start engine - tap again with small tool, and if it still dies, stalls, or fluctuates, replace the sensor (MAS).

Also, make sure that if you already installed a new fuel filter, that it is facing in the right direction. On most (inline {near tank} filters}, there is an arrow that should point toward the front of the car (or if mounted horizontally (from one side of car to other, facing both directions) make sure the arrow is facing the driver side.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

    Does the car turn over at all?



    Here are some things to check (replace):



    1. Starter Relay

    2. Fuel Pump Relay (since this happened right after fueling the car).

    3. Ignition fuse (may be more than one - sometimes two - one is for ignition, other(s) are for accessories, but will have fuses installed).



    Please let me know if you need further assistance.

    My apologies for the delayed response.



    The MAS (mass airflow sensor) is located between the airfilter casing and the intake. It's a small black unit (box like) with a wiring harness that comes out of it.

my guess is a blown head gasket. I would do a compression test on all cylinders to be sure. these engines wont stand much high temperature running before blowing the head gasket. you can rent a compression tester from your local autoparts store usually for free.

MY 2005 FORD TAURUS SW,THE CHECK GAS CAP CAME ON. TIGHTENED IT GOT GAS AND IT STAYED ON. DROVE FOR A FEW MILES AND LIGHT WENT OFF?


Maybe the cap was just not put on all the way

Then the Evap Monitor ran & did not find any faults

That monitor is the last to run & only does so every few days

Your timing was just when you needed it to run

1995 ford taurus will not start at times and later starts fine


Sounds like the Fuel Pump, which is located in the Gas Tank, ahead of the rear wheels, basically under the rear door. The gas tank itself is not hard to remove, and you could get a kit available online. It's probably easier to do if you have ramps and back the rear wheels onto those two ramps, you can't do it as easily by just jacking up the car. If you have two hydraulic jacks, that might work as well.

If you buy the part, you want to bring it to a gas station to remove the gas tank, they should be able to do all the work for you in about one hour.

Car won't start


Your fuel pump is sticking and not pumping, this is common if you run the fuel down to less than 1/4 full, the fuel pump needs the gas to cool itself, below a 1/4 tank the pump is not getting cooled and after repeatably running low on fuel it overheats and fails. Running the car near 1/2 tank extends the pump life to many years more than running tank below a 1/4 full..
