It's not the easiest car....

  • Raise the hood to access the engine compartment. Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery.

  • Locate the drain plug at the bottom of the fuel tank. Open the drain plug with a crescent wrench. Allow all the fuel to drain into a large drain pan. Tighten the plug when the tank is drained.
  • Raise the back end of the vehicle by placing a jack under the driver's side rear door. There is an indented spot that is braced for the weight of the car. Chock the front wheels to ensure the car does not roll while lifted. Set the parking brake.
  • Place a second jack under the fuel tank to prevent the tank from falling to the ground when the straps are removed. Ensure the jack is in the center of the tank.
  • Unbolt the two straps with a socket wrench. Place the straps out of the way once they are removed.
  • Rest the tank onto the jack. Lower the tank enough to access the fuel lines and electrical wires. Separate the fuel line from the top of the tank by pulling the tabs then pulling away from the piping that holds the line in place. Disconnect the electrical lines from the tank by pushing down on the locking tab at the connector and pulling off from the connecting harness.
  • Slide the tank out from underneath the car. Lower the car until you are ready to install the tank.
  • Twist off the cap at the top of the gas tank with a counterclockwise movement using a large set of channel locks. Place the cap to the side and discard the O-ring.
  • Lift up on the fuel pump assembly to pull it out of the tank. You may have to tilt the assembly to pull it out comfortably.

    Where is fuel pump located

    The 220 TBI unit has a bleed in the pressure regulator to relieve pressure any time the engine is turned off, however a small amount of fuel may be released when the fuel line is disconnected. As a precaution, cover the fuel line with a cloth and dispose of properly. Fig. 1: Electric fuel pump - TBI engines 84905028.gif
    1. With the engine turned OFF, relieve the fuel pressure at the pressure regulator. Refer to the fuel relief procedure in this section.
    2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    3. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle on jackstands.
    4. Drain the fuel tank, then remove it.
    5. Using a hammer and a drift punch, drive the fuel lever sending device and pump assembly locking ring (located on top of the fuel tank) counterclockwise. Lift the assembly from the tank and remove the pump from the fuel lever sending device.
    6. Pull the pump up into the attaching hose while pulling it outward away from the bottom support. Be careful not to damage the rubber insulator and strainer during removal. After the pump assembly is clear of the bottom support, pull it out of the rubber connector. To install:
    7. Connect the fuel pump to the hose. NOTE: Be careful that you don't fold or twist the strainer when installing the sending unit, or you'll restrict fuel flow.
    8. Install a new O-ring on the pump assembly and then position them into the fuel tank.
    9. Turn the locking ring clockwise until its tight.
    10. Install the fuel tank and connect the battery cable.

    How do you remove fuel pump thru access hole under back seat in 99 cougar

    just finished one on my 99 cougar... remove the back seat, take out the rubber ring that has the fuel pump wires running through it. on the end of the wires is a clip that has to be removed before you can unplug it... it is metal... you just pull straight out to the side and it will come out... then remove the plug from top of fuel pump.... then feel directly to the right is a nother plug that has to be unplugged.... then with a long screwdriver (flat head) and a hammer knock the keeper ring clock wise to get it out from under the tabs.... slide the rings down the fuel lines... NOTE: THESE LINES ARE NOT TO BE REMOVED..... Pick fuel pump housing up out of tank and remove the pump, and replace with new one.... you may have to drop the fuel tank a little to pick it up out of tank... that's easy too... crawl up under it make sure it is on jack stands and the emergency brake pulled, and in park.. chalk the front wheels just too make sure it doesn't move.. then on the front of the tank there is two bolts one on each side.. remove them and tank will drop down enough to do job.... hope this helps
