    Just after my warranty expired, I too found a 1 inch crack in my fuel tank. After several go rounds with Ford they replaced the tank at no cost. I bought this car new and have had the following issues with it to date..replaced drivers side seatbelt motor. timing belt, cooling fan, fuel pump. right now the rear wiper does not work and the coolant light stays on all the time. Other than that it always starts and runs great! It was a starter car for my 21 year old and has been passed down to my 15 year old new driver!

There was a recall for the leaky fuel tanks by Ford. It should be a Freebee on that one.

Yes, a metal tank can replace the plastic one provided it is designed for the same year, make and model vehicle. You shouldn't have any problems with a replacement tank.

Looking for a location of the fuel pressure regulator on a 1994 Ford Escort


Hi,
The fuel pressure regulator is on the end of the fuel rail, which is where the injectors are plugged into. It is the round part which is attached to the very end of the rail.
Let me know if you need more information.
Thanks
Jason

Were is the fuel pump located on a 1995 ford escort ? i was going over a railroad track and my car just died. It will turn over though


Fuel pump is located in the fuel tank. You can access fuel pump trough rear of the vehicle in some models thru trunk afer removing carpet, or never models behind rear seat. You have to remove rear seat to access fuel pump .
Check your fuel pressure before removing fuel pump, somethimes your fuel shutt off switch could be malfunctioning.

Petrol smell inside of car. This started just resently, its really bad, but not all the time. The car is old but fine, and goes wonderfully well really, but the smell is very worrying. What can it be and...


Gas or anitfreeze are both petrolium based prducts. Check for leaks on both. Antifreeze has a sweet smell and is either green or orange if using Dex Cool (look in resivoir to confirm color or if its low) to diffrentiate the 2.

The easiest way to find fuel filters is to start at the petrol tank and work forwards some put them just infront of the petrol tank others are just befor the engine bay you should be able to follow you fuel lines from either end and it should be about 1.5 feet from motor or just after tank
