Yes, it's probably the relay for the fuel pump that is sticking 'on' and causing the pump to continuously pump.

2001 ford taurus occaisionally loses fuel pressure, when the in line schrader valve is depressed only air/ vacuum is released but no gas. I hear the fuel pump when ignition is rotated to on position...

Mechanic at the local Ford dealer told me (he thought) the silver disc thingy is a device to smooth out minor pressure fluctuations in the fuel line.

I think there are two main possibilities - the fuel pressure regulator might be intermittently faulty and sometimes fails to maintain a pressure, effectively sticking wide open so when the engine (and fuel pump) stops the fuel rail could empty back into the tank. The second possibility is a problem inside the tank on the intake side of the fuel pump so fuel swill/fuel level causes the pump to suck air...

1994 Ford Taurus 3.0 V6 no fuel pressure

Can you hear the pump whirring noise when you turn the key on? A totally stopped up filter can ruin a pump quickly, but it could be the fuel pump inertia cut-off switch in the trunk needs reset by pushing down the red button. don-ohio

I have a 1998 Taurus the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds when you first turn the key on then stops. I have replace the fuel pump checked the fuse and relay which are good. What else can I do...

Is it running for a few seconds while the engine is running and stopping? If this is happening just when the key is turned on with the engine not running the fuel system is supposed to be doin this. When you first turn your key on your fuel pump is going to turn on for a few seconds to pressurize the system then the relay shuts it off.

Car wont start when cold have replace starter switch battery and altenator and starter, have used grismer tire and repair with no fix yet what am i not doing right

You would change the fuel filter, crank sensor and run a can of fuel injector cleaner in a tank of gas, you may also want to remove the Throttle Body cover, get a can of carb cleaner and spray the heck out of the TB do this while running throttleing it, dont let it idle, it will die out on you.

Keep in mind that the starting problems typically come from problems with the battery, starter, fuel pump, or ignition. Checking these things in your Ford Taurus can be done with a few automotive tools. Once you have isolated the problem, you can decide to fix it yourself or take it to a professional:
1. Place the key in the ignition and turn to the "On" position. The dashboard on your Taurus should light up. If it does not, it indicates that there is a problem with your battery.
2. Open the hood of your Taurus and check the battery for corrosion or loose connections. For corrosion, clean the connections. Tighten any loose connections. Attach a voltmeter to the battery. The red lead goes on the positive terminal and the black on the negative. On a Taurus, 12.5 volts or better are needed to power the car, and between 13.8 to 14.5 to run the alternator. If the voltmeter shows 12.5, then the battery is okay; if it is between 12.5 to 13.8 then the alternator needs to be replaced.
3. Turn the key in the ignition. If you hear a clicking noise, your starter is faulty and needs replacing. If there is no noise, the ignition switch could be the culprit.
4. Turn the key in the ignition on and off for three seconds, then on again. Listen to the Taurus. In a Ford Taurus, the fuel pump operates for only two seconds. When the key is turned on, you should hear a sound similar to a growl or "rrr." If you do not hear the sound, your fuel pump is not working properly to send fuel through your car.
5. Remove a spark plug from your Taurus and lay the wire to a metal surface. If there is no spark, the engine is not igniting properly, and you need new spark plugs.

Keep us updated.

My 1993 toyota camry v6 just died after making a left turn and will not start up turns over just does not wanna fire,could it be numerous things or more of the fuel filter?

it could be alot of things. if the car was running fine before it happened i wouldn't say the fuel filter. if it was dirty enough to clog from taking a turn then the car would have ran poorly. i see alot of ignition issues with these cars.
with out testing you could be chasing your tail and wasting money.

hope this help and please ask any more question you have. good luck

1999 ford taurus isn't getting fuel

Oil pressure sensor is part of the fuel circuit. You changed engines, did the new one have the same sensor?

Fuel pump not staying on 1993 k1500 350

Some GM products also incorporate the oil sender switch into that circuit for fuel pump, so that in case of an accident, engine shuts off, oil pressure drops, in turn, shuts off power to fuel pump. May be worth a look at what your getting for oil pressure, as well as checking switch/sender.

Sounds like it could be the throttle position sensor.
