Hi, an easy way to verify a bad pump is to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Ask him if he did that. Pump replacement is expensive, but pressure test is cheap--takes only a few minutes.

2006 ford Taurus, cold start perfect, run perfect. However, when restart the car when it is hot, no fuel pump sound, no start, gave code P0191 p1233. Any ideas, thanks.


  • If you haven't changed the Fuel Filter in the last 30,000 miles, please do that and follow it with adding Fuel Injector Cleaner to the fuel tank.
  • If there is a fuel pressure test port then please check the pressures.
  • If the fuel pressure is low then check the fuel pressure regulator.
  • If all does not works, please refer a certified mechanic locally.

My taurus will not start


If you have no fuel pressure, a mechanic would check for voltage at the relay and the pump. If the pump has no voltage, check the inertia switch.

2002 ford taurus won't start - brand new battery and complete tune up still won't start


Sounds like your not getting any fuel..Listen for the fuel pump,by removing gas cap and put your ear up to it..cycle the key without starting it and listen for the pump..sometimes you can beat on the bottom of the tank and it will jarr the pump and it will start running again..Not a fix but a conformation
