Most are on top of tank, Some are in the pannel behind back seat , Most likely it's in the tank, You will have to drop the tank anf it has 4 lines going to it, And 4 small screws. Make sure it's not your fuel relay first, This is more common the problem, This is under hood in a black box, The fuel relay is marked, Sorry there is no way to test this. But would save you a lot of work if it is, Best of luck to you.

Yes it is, but you can probably access it without dropping the tank if you remove the rear seat bench and pull up the rug to reveal (drum roll, hopefully) an inspection plate that you can remove for easier access to the pump.

Under demand conditions, (ie uphill), a clogged fuel filter or pump will block itself more with increased particle suction pressure. Sounds like a blocked fuel filter or weak pump, listen for inconsistent pump whirring sounds in the gas tank fill tube. Your pump is in the tank I believe. Filter should be beneath the floor pan. It is cheap to blow them out backwards with a compressor. Beware of residual line pressure while disconnecting. never use a drop light around gas.

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.

How do you replace the fuel pump on a 1994 Mercury Sable Wagon ?


The fuel tank needs to be removed to replace the pump. Remove fuel from tank. The fuel filler and vent hoses need to be disconnected. The electrical connector needs to be disconnected. Unbolt tank straps(2). Lower tank down. Remove fuel lines from pump. Use a brass drift(to prevent sparks) and hammer to turn retaining ring that holds pump in tank. Install new pump with new "o" ring seal and reassemble in reverse order
