    The tank vapor recovery system isn't working properly. When that happens air is trying to escape as the fuel goes in. Since both cannot happen at the same time, it kicks back.

Its the canister vent solenoid, if you have modified the filler neck( removed any part of it) there is a good chance your gas cap will not seal properly, causing a service engine light

Is there a fuel pump on a 2001 Ford Taurus or is it handled differently because of fuel injection?


Absolutely your Ford Taurus uses a fuel pump, with fuel injection the fuel pump is an electric fuel pump capable of higher pressures needed for the injectors, the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, sometimes the fuel tank has to be removed from the vehicle to service the pump, and some vehicles that I have worked on have an access panel under the rear seat to open up and access the pump that way. Good luck !

2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking


Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking


make sure battery is fully charged and have tested for a weak cell and check out the alternator and the drive belt and if the car has over 40,000miles it needs a tune up plugs wires fuel filter and if all this fails have the timing checked and don't forget the crank sensor to have it checked
