Could be dirty filter or pump about to fail. High amp draw can cause relays to overheat. Might try testing amps drawn while running, but likely you will need to replace pump and possibly relay also.

SOURCE: How to Change a Fuel Pump in a 2001 Ford Crown


  1. Park the vehicle in a safe place and make sure there is enough room around the back of the vehicle for you to work and move tools around.
  2. Start the engine and let it idle while you relieve the fuel system pressure by removing the fuel pump fuse or relay from the fuse box. Wait a few seconds for the engine to stall, turn the ignition key off and replace the relay or fuse.
  3. Raise the back of your car using a floor jack and support it safely on jack stands.
  4. Disconnect the fuel tank filler pipe and the fuel pump connector located above the cross member underneath the vehicle.
  5. Disconnect the vapor tube from the tee connector on the right side of the car-passenger side-and the vapor line from the canister tube.
  6. Support the fuel tank with a jack and remove the nuts from the holding strap using a wrench or ratchet and socket. Move the strap away and lower the fuel tank. Discard the fuel tank mounting studs.
  7. Unplug the pressure transducer electrical connector located on the top rear corner of the fuel tank.
  8. Clean the area around the fuel pump mounting flange and remove the flange mounting bolts in a crisscross pattern.
  9. Lift the fuel pump assembly off the tank. Replace the new fuel pump in the assembly and install the assembly in the tank. Install the flange screws and torque to 89 inch lbs. (10Nm) using a crisscross pattern.
  10. Raise the fuel tank to its mounting position, install the strap using new mounting studs and torque the nuts to 26 foot lbs. (35 Nm).
  11. Connect the fuel pressure transducer electrical connector, vapor tube to the tee connector, vapor line to the canister tube, fuel tank filler pipe and fuel pump electrical connector.
  12. Lower the vehicle, start the engine and check for leaks.

2005 ford crown victoria shuts off randomly while drive but it doesnt sputter before shutting off just cuts off

Does it start right back up after it dies or do you have to wait. If you have to wait for a bit then it starts back up could be a fuel pump. It is very possible that if the fuel pump shuts off you lose pressure and the vehicle will just die, it won't sputter like many think. It's not like it is starving for fuel at that time, it just quits working. I know it is hard to diagnose but I have seen a Lincoln Town Car with similar issue and it was the fuel pump. That pump unfortunately is in the fuel tank. If this helps please give me thumbs up. Good luck.
