94 Ford Taurus Fuel Pump Access?

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if you can access the fuel pump from under the rear seat in a 94 Taurus sedan? If so, how does one remove the back seat to get at it? I am pretty sure I am just going to have to jack it up, drop the tank, and work in tight spaces, but it would be awesome if there were an access point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You are correct, you will need to jack the car up and remove the fuel tank to replace the pump. Also remember to replace the fuel filter along with it! Good luck!

Is the filter inside the tank as well? I had to siphon out about 6 gallons of gas today, so that took most of my afternoon. Got 4 gallons to go no problem but then it lost the siphon and I couldn't get it to keep running again, so out came the mini bulb. I am going to pull the tank down tomorrow morning and get working on it. What a fun project. Shoulda just paid someone to do it.

I never figured out why some "genius" engineer never thought to design a small cover insider rear trunk or under rear seat to access the fuel pump. I wonder which college they went to ?

I had a VW Convertible once and it took 15 minutes to replace the pump, same as a BMW. I bought a Saab for my son and I cut the opening myself... for the next time.

The fuel filter will be right in front of the passenger rear wheel. You'll see the hose clamp holding it to the mounting bracket.

I was pretty sure that was where the filter was. I just wanted to make sure I didn't hang the tank back up before changing it and have to do it over again. I haven't yanked the tank yet. I wish I had the wrench for the pump retainer, but my buddy did one a couple years back and made do with a block of wood and a hammer.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
