Escort diesel fuel pump problem , new one has 3 wires instead of 1 wire

We replaced an old 1992 escort diesel van engine with a 1996 one but the new fuel pump has 3 wires whereas the old 1 only had 1 wire , do we just use the 1 wire ? and if so which terminal does it go to ?

Hi my Discovery 1 1996 diesel 300 tdi (148k miles) when under a full load it cuts out for a few minutes and after switching of and waiting 5 minutes it restarts. Fuel filter has been changed and it runs on...

its the alarm spyder imoboliser behind the dash its cuts the fuel cut off on the injection pump stopping the engine they fail due to worn solder on the chip board to by pass it take a a piece of wire with a spade conecter to you fuel cut off solenoid on the injection pump take off old wire tape it up slide the new wire on feed the other end into the bulk head inside the car to the front of the fuse box there is a four pin plug from your ignition live snip the yellow wire ad your new wire with a block connecter to the yellow wire presto no more cut outs i would recomend this way as i had the same problem and wanted to make sure it would not cut the engine again it is dangerous if your exiting a junction kind regards chris.

How to change wireing for a ford escort 1.8 to a 2.0

You'll need the engine computer harness from the 2.0 and you'll have to remove the 1.8 harness and replace it with the 2.0 harness. Both fuel systems are return style so nothing has to be done with the pump. You might have to make new fuel lines at the rail, though.

Ford escort 1.8 diesel van 1994 just stoped whiles driving

You are on the right track. 99% sure it is a fuel supply problem. I suspect the lift pump is a likly candiddate or an obstruction inside of the fuel tank. Chack also on the vacuum side of the pump for any loose hoses that could result in an air leak so the lift pump will draw air instsead of fuel
