It's quite possible you burned out the fuel pump. The fuel pump relies on a constant flow of gasoline to cool it. Unfortunately, you have to drop the tank to access the fuel pump, but is a fairly easy fix for an avid do-it-youselfer. Before you go to that length, though, try having someone stand by rear of the car and listen for the "whirr" of the fuel pump when you turn the key to the "RUN" position. (not "START", just "RUN") If they can hear the pump, try turning the key off and on about 5 times to re-pressurize the fuel system before attempting to start the engine. Hope this helps a little and your problem is not too severe. Best of luck!

My 1998 ford taurus won't go unless i pump the gas pedal several times. it has a v6 dohc engine. I've tried lucas fuel injector cleaner twice but it didn't do any good.


Anything you add to your gas tank is a waste of money

You know 10 oz of anything in a fuel tank that holds
18 gallons will be diluted,common sense.

You press the gas pedal several times to get a
response. So you have a place to start,if you know
how your vehicles works.

The TPS Sensor would be a good place to start
your testing,not replacing,it could be other things.

Just go to a repair shop
