How about the security light on dashboard? It flashes every 2 sec. When u turn the key on it should stay on constanly for 3 sec then go off. If it flashes rapidly, like mine did, then it isnt reading the key. I took some electronic contact cleaner and sprayed it in the ignition whele slidin the key in an out. And it works now. I have to tilt the steerin wheel all the way down also. Not sure why. It took me a while to fig out what was going on with it. I even chngd the pump. It cuts the pwr off to the pump. but there is pwr at safety switch. If it stops wrkn again i will run a wire from it to pump. Better than new sec key and computer. Also when you start it for first time ea day. Turn key on till u hear pump run and stop. Then turn off and on again so it will build up more fuel pressure. Hope this helps. Take neg bat cable off b4 spraying the ignition.

Yes it is in the fuel tank and it is a pain. But not impossible. I would use car ramps under rear tires that is about hi enough to slide tank out. Flush tank out to.

1998 Lincoln Continental fuel tank. The basket

Hello drahos376. My Name is Roger and I will help. If the component you are asking about was located inside of the fuel tank? The parts inside the tank such as the baffles and the cup the fuel strainer sit in are non replaceable. There would be no way to open the tank to install them. I would check with a salvage yard to find a replacement. A new tank from the dealer is very expensive to buy. Should you need further help lease just ask. Please rate the answer that you received as this way I know it helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
