Start with checking your fuel pump and injector mini relay. Fuel pump relay is #18 and injectors is #48 and is located in the fuse box under the engine hood.
Also inspect your ECM fuse, the fuel pump get's it power from the ECM fuse and at wost. It's your fuel pump that has gone bad and that is located in the gas tank, but make sure your fuel filter is not to dirty causing fuel restriction and replacing that will address that issue.
Thank you for using fixya and keep us posted.

2000 mercury grand marquis 4.6 Intermittent problem. 35,000. miles. Problem engine died several times wile driving. Also after car is parked from a drive will not start. Found that the fuel pump is not...


I'd have to test when problem is ongoing. When you first turn on key, no crank, you should hear the pump run for a few seconds then stop. For initial prime, the computer doesn't need rpm signal. Engine cranking, the computer needs to see rpm signal or it won't ground the fuel pump relay. W/o rpm signal, no spark at the plugs and no fuel injector pulse. I know your talking about fuel, but, when problem is ongoing, check spark and fuel injector pulse, engine cranking.
Intermittent problems are a pain, have to test when problem is ongoing.

Car starts and stalls. Don't hear sound of fuel


The mechanic should check on the fuel pump and the Idle of the fuel pump . if the fuel pump is malfunctioning then you have to repair it.Then also the throttle if the throttle is being worn out or malfunctioning then you have to repair or replace it.The Idle should be adjusted because of the engine is stumbling .the reason why the engine is stumbling or the car over heats is that the fuel pump is not functioning good or there is a problem in the fuel pump.and also it is the reason why the engine light goes off when cold because of the engine problem is in the fuel pump.such fuel or is not entering or going to the engine.
