This is caused by an obstructed filler air pipe vent, this keeps the air from coming out of the tank as you fill, this causes the filler nozzle at the station to shut off as the gas backs up in the filler pipe, the air vent pipe is either kinked or blocked in some way. The vent tube runs down along side the gas fill tube and is all one part, replace it.

Mercury sable 1996 changed fuel filter had brown gas in it did this ruin fuel pump. Can hear pump when trying to start car

Most likely the fuel pump is ok, but there is likely air in the fuel line that you need to bleed off under the hood.

It is possible that the fuel pump went bad, and the way to know is to check the fuel pressure (same place you bleed it under the hood). The fuel pump is in the tank, so it's a real pain to change.

I am trying to sifen old gas out of 1997 Mercury Sable that has been sitting for 3years to replace gas befor trying to start. I have a hose small enough to fit down fill pipe but stop befor entering tank?

There is a flap in the filler tube that won't allow a hose into the tank. I would disconnect the fuel line and jump the fuel pump relay and run the pump to drain the gas.

My 94 Mercury Sable slows down and dies when less than half tank

Check for vent to gas tank,and the fuel pressure regulater to make sure the gas that isn`t being used is routed back to tank easy.The return line going back to tank needs to be cleared by removing gas cap,and blowing air pressure back into tank,If this don`t help,replace the fuel pump,for it is weak.
