SOURCE: 2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem

If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

SOURCE: fuel problem

The problems you're  having with your freestyle are very common, whats happening is that your fuel tank is designed like a saddle.  
There is a fuel pump on the passenger side of the tank and a remote pick-up on the drivers side. What happens is that the jet pump, which is responsible for pumping the fuel from the drivers side of the tank to the passenger side is not working and so when the pass side fuel level is low. The drivers side still has fuel but it is unable to get it to the drivers side. So it wont start, but it still reads 1/4 tank because that is how much fuel is in the drivers side. 
From driving around, some fuel does spill over the hump. But without the jet pump working, it will never empty the drivers side of the tank. You are correct in saying you need a new fuel pump, it is one big assembly, and unfortunately, expensive as well.

Good luck and hope this helps, the only other thing is to have the van Scanned for any DCT codes.

SOURCE: Vehicle will not start after stalling, however it will turn over

check the inertia (fuel cut off) switch 1st- it's either in the kick plate on the pass. front or in the trunk. seen a few of them go, have someone hold the button dow while you start the car.

My problem is i have a ford focus 2005 2.0L the main problem is the fuel injector doesnt give any signal so that the fuel pump can supply gasoline... can u please send me a color coding of the wiring...


it is not in the computer box, (PCM). It could be the fuel pump relay if you can't hear the pump run for 5 seconds when key is turned on. It could be your crank sensor not sending a signal to the PCM. Is check engien light on? What happens if you spray startting fluid into the throttle body? Does it start then?

Diesel focus run out now needs bleeding how do i do it


most of the ford diesels have a lift pump to supply fuel. My experience is the the larger engine like 7.3 and 6.0's but the only thing you should need to do is go to your fuel filter. crack it open so fuel can flow out. have someone turn on the ignition but do not start it. run it until the fuel starts to come out the fuel filter housing then shut it off and tighten your filter housing back up. turn your ignition on but dont start it. you should hear the fuel pump kick in. wait a few seconds and then try to start it. after a few cranks your engine should start.

Fuel pump replacement on 2005 ford focus


Are you sure that you need to replace the pump? I drive a 54 plate mk2 1.6 zetec that wouldn't always start and I was told it was the fuel pump in the tank but because the fault was intermitant I didn't have it fitted and found out that the car didn't start because the fuel lift pump wasn't priming the system before starting. I found that there was a faulty connection on the relay for the pump that is in the compartment under the glove compartment.
