It doesnt hold pressure the pump primes it straight away but on teh end of the fuel rail is a vacumn operated valve that allows the build up of pressure required and if the vacumn pipe or the diaphgram is perished then thats your problem

Almost ran my 99 taurus out of gas . After filling up the car started sputtering and barely made it home where it now wont start. It turns over. Is it my fuel filter now


Unfortunately, you need to locate your fuel rail and use a fuel pressure servce tool to determine if you have a pressure problem. Master fuel o ressure kits have the ability to check fuel pressure before and after fuel filter. When ever you run a tank completely dry it overheats the fuel pump. You should never let your tank get below a 1/4 because the submersed fuel around the pump acts as the pumps cooling system. When a tank is ran lw constantly it kills the kife of the fuel pump.

Can will not start when hot outside. Turns over. No battery problem


I had a similar problem. my 99 taurus wouldn't start after it was hot until engine cooled down enough. It turned out that it was the fuel pump. It provided enough pressure when the engine was cool but as it heated up, the pressure would decrease. Then the engine was not getting enough fuel to even start.

I have a fuel pressure tester but I don't know how to check it on a 2006 Taurus with the 3.0 12v motor. I think the fuel pump is bad because sometimes the car does not start. I am unable to tell if the...


Located on the fuel rail ( silver or chrome lines holding fuel injectors) you will find a cap at one end that looks like a valve stem cover. When you remove the cover you will find a connector which resembles a tire valve stem. You will connect the fuel pressure tester to this port, and you will need a second person to help. Once connected you will want the helper to turn the key to the on position while watching the gauge. You should see a small pressure rise when the key is cycled from off to on several times. Then with the tester still attached have you helper start the car. You should see a increased pressure around 40PSI. You should check with ford for the proper fuel rail pressure. The gauge should only move about 5 pounds or so while idling.
If you do not have fuel pressure I would first suggest checking the fuel pump relay and it contacts to make sure the relay is working properly. If the relay is working and you still have little pressure the I would change the fuel filter. After that if you still have low pressure I would suggest replacing the pump.

99 ford taurus will not start


buy a can of carburator cleaner, spray into duct area while cranking engine. Does engine try to start(fire)? If so, find inertia switch (button in trunk). 'reset button just by pushing it. If this switch was triped, fuel injectors or fuel pump will not operaate. If spraying carb cleaner does not help starting then fuel pressure should be checked to rule out fuel delevery problem. AS a precaution, make sure your useing the correct key(original). Security problems also shut off fuel.
