If your making payments and you don't have a long and successful career or hobby diagnosing vehicle issues, turn it in.
You made a financial error out of the gate. Paying $420 a month on an item, that depreciates every day. Very few people can afford that life style. Buy a vehicle you can pay in full, in cash,and work your way up over the years.
Fuel pumps last, three or four years at least, to as much as my last one,18 years.
I personally don't believe you had three bad pumps. I hope the dealer wasn't your life line all this time. Find a good shop close to home, for your next vehicle,before you need one. Forget the dealers.

I have a 2006 ford taurus that skips bad the fuel pump has been replaced 2 times n the compter


By "skips," I'm assuming that you mean it has a misfire.
Check all of the following:
  1. Fuel filter;
  2. Fuel pressure regulator:
  3. Spark plug wires;
  4. Spark plugs;
  5. Fuel injectors;
  6. Coil packs
  7. If there is a CHECK ENGINE light showing, have all codes read and correct all conditions.
  8. If the car sat for more than six months recently, if you live in an area where humidity is high, or if there is any chance of fuel contamination, manually drain ALL FUEL and replace with new. Use FUEL SYSTEM AND FUEL INJECTOR CLEANER every six months.

Here is a heated seat TSB for cars built prior to 12/14/07

TSB 09-4-8

INOPERATIVE HEATED SEAT(S) - BUILT
BEFORE 12/14/2007

FORD:
2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle
2008 Taurus X, Taurus

MERCURY:
2005-2007 Montego
2008 Sable

ISSUE
Some 2005-2007 Freestyle, Five Hundred, Montego and 2008 Taurus, Sable and Taurus X vehicles built before 12/14/2007 may exhibit an inoperative heated seat(s). This concern may be caused by an intermittent open element in the heated seat mat.

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE
The heated seat system is controlled by the heated seat module located underneath the front passenger seat cushion. The heated seat switches are part of the heating ventilation air conditioning (HVAC) module but the heated seat system operates independently from the climate control system. The heated seat module regulates seat temperature by monitoring resistance of a thermistor type thermostat located in the cushion heater mat. The heated seat module is designed to remain on, heating the seat and maintaining temperature until switched off. For vehicles built before 5/1/2006, the module will time-out and switch off after 10 minutes.

1. Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-10 for pin point test on inoperative heated seat(s).
a. When testing the heater mats resistance and circuits for an intermittent open, technicians should sit in the seat while testing the circuit resistance, move the seat in multiple seating positions and apply pressure to several areas of the heated seat mat to ensure the mat element is not open intermittently.

2. Refer to WSM 501-10 for heated seat element replacement when an open electrical circuit has been identified.

I hope this helps to solve it.

Not able to start my 1990 Ford Taurus, turning over, but seems to be fuel problem. How can I check the trouble codes on this to help me diagnose?


are you sure that it is fuel problems? Turn key to the on position and listen for a buzzing sound. That buzzing sound is the fuel pump. If you do not hear it then the fuel pump has gone out or maybe it's a fuse to the fuel pump. If the pump is working the it could be the timing belt. Check it out.

Yeah, The fuel pump can go bad . The normal warranty on the pump is 12 months or 12,000 miles. This is very rare . I would check if the fuel pump had a lifetime warranty.

I would also check the ignition switch, and all the fuses to make sure the fuel pump is the failure.

Good Luck
