Just because the pump comes on doesn't mean that it is working you can go to advanced auto or some other place and rent a fuel line presure tester there will be a check valve under the hood in the fuel lineand there is also a filter at the end of the pump in the tank

My sister parked here 99 Grand Marquis 18 months ago because it needed an alternator and an intake. Now can afford to repair, once trying to jump start. We noticed it is not getting fuel. There is gas in...


There is possibility that the fuel has gone bad and has become gummy(fuel doesn't last like it used to)...this may have gummed up the fuel pump and sort of locked it up...you may need to replace the fuel pump...which is inside the fuel tank...one good way to test if this is problem is to remove the fuel filter and then turn on the key and try cranking to see if any fuel comes out..if it does then you may need to replace the fuel filter..if not, then the fuel pump

WHERE IS THE FUEL PUMP ON 2001 GRAND MARQUIS IF INTERNAL HOW DO YOU GET TO IT


Not sure where the pump is right now I would say it is in the tank, someone else said it is in the engine compartment, but that sound suspicious to me. I would go to the auto supply house and buy a repair manual for the make model and year of the vehicle and get all tools and parts while there that way there is no doubt and you have it for future reference. But I have provided info on how to change you fuel filter I know the answer to that for sure. On the 2001 mercury grand marquis and the fuel filter is under the passenger side rear door right inside of the frame.when you replace it should take about 1 hour to find and 5 minutes to replace.The fuel line comes out of the fuel tank,underneath the car traveling diagonal towards the passenger side of the car.Right before an elbow in the line inside the frame rail,underneath the rear passenger door is your filter there are clips on either end of the filter sort of snap off downward, tug on them with some force,they'll snap down.Have a pan beneath the area.Wear personal safety protection , i.e. glove and safety glasses/goggles.. Be ready for gas to run out.it is only the little bit left in the filter.Pull the lines off and discard the filter properly.Put the lines on the new filter and put the snaps securely back on. Try starting your car let it idle a little while and then turn off your car and clean up your work area and you are all done...

If I can help more let me know.

Hope that helps please rate/score and or place a testimonial to my advice.

My 1996 mercury grand marquis starts and runs good, good power, has 200,000 miles on it. When I fill it up and drive it, it dies and starts right back up. I think it is the fuel pump. I have not checked...


You might have a bad gas cap. I would also change the fuel filter, I did a fuel filter on the same type of vehicle and the gas coming out of it looked like black ink, it was so dirty.

2001 Mercury Grand Marquis hesitation and jolting from 35-45 mph


Sure, the more the throttle and the longer its open the more gas is being injected so if the spark is not there it will spotter. I think you have nothing to loose with an ignition tune-up. It'll be more economical than taking it to a mechanic and still ending up with the same problem. You should change the fuel filter also it could be clogged and there is'nt enough fuel delivered at these speeds. You can also try a fuel injector cleaning solution the kind you pour in the gas tank. This might work for you.

So you have power there, why not try a little whap with rubber hammer near it while key on to see if it will do anything. I;d try it just to see if it will come back to life.

Fuel pump


The fuel pump for the 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis is inside the gas tank. Early this year the Ford garage replaced it thinking it would fix a problem that was ultimately traced to a short that blew a component on the computer board. I ended up paying for the fuel pump, but just paid the material cost for the computer board.
