94 Ford Taurus Fuel Pump Access?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
