  • hi sir how are you
  • . I believe the pump is in the tank, but it's verry easy to remove. Open the tank lid and remove the bolts on the plate around the filler tube. Dosconnect all the fuel and vent hoses and lift the plate straight up. the pump, filter and assembly are on the bottom of the **** tube.They will all come out in one piece.

Get under your gas tank and follow the lines. one of them should lead not far away from the tank where most filters are located. When you change it remember to release pressure by take loose the gas cap...and have some rags ready to catch some overflow.

SOURCE: need help replacing fuel pump. 1996 ford

Disconnect the battery & any fuel lines you can and the same with electrical connectors first of all. Drain the tankwith a siphon pump if 3 gallons or more of fuel is present. It gets heavy to replace back in and dangerous too.. Have the tank supported now & remove the bolts from the tanks mounting straps. Drop the tank down about 6 inches and check for other connection that need to be removed
RFemove the center retainer to remove the fuel pump with the sending unit
I would replace both items since it is an older car and also replace the filter sock to the pump too

Why does the fuel pump stay on after the key is turned off?


the fuel pump relay is mounted in the trunk, behind the back seat and on the passanger side. The relay base is green in color. It sounds like the fuel pump relay is stuck on, the secondary circuit is always on. Check/ replace the relay.

86 thunderbird... quit while driving.. traced it down to no fuel ... pump is good .. replaced relay ... still not engaging pump ... next step ?


Did you replace the fuel filter. Did you check the fuse? How do you know the pump is good? Just because you hear it running does not mean it is pumping any fuel. A fuel pressure test will verify if the pump is indeed good. If it is the OEM pump I would bet it has failed. It is rare for a pump to last 25 years.

1986 Ford Thunderbird. Turn signal does not


Have you checked the contacts to make sure they are touching the bulb base. I have a 1995 Ford Contour that did the same thing. I took a screwdriver and bent the contacts out very slightly and it has worked fine ever since.

Replace canister purge valve- 1996 thunderbird 3.8


Hi,

Why do you want to replace the charcoal purge canister? Are you smelling fuel vapor under the hood?

On a 1986 (this is posted on the 1986 forum), it is held on by a screw (possibly a rivet).

In my opinion, I'd leave the vapor canister alone. If you really want to spend $50 on something, buy new seat covers.
