faulty fuel pump 2000 mustang 6

My mechanic says my fuel pump is not working and has to be replaced. Is there some other feature in the fuel system causing my engine not to start such as a faulty eec? I don't wish to spend a lot of money of course

If you do it yourself, or have it done for you, make sure to replace the fuel filler neck grommet. They're notorious for splitting and leaking on 79-2004 mustangs. The grommet can be picked up from any parts store or the Ford dealer.

i have to look at the wiring diagram... but you should probably check for voltage while cranking at the inertia switch .. so you can see if the fuel pump relay or the CCRM is actually supplying turn on voltage to the Fuel pump driver module..










learn these guys.. most returnless ford fuel system are wired in a similar manner. some have CCRMs. some have Fuel pump relays to supply power to the inertia switch.

one can test the fuel pump directly by disconnecting the fuel pump driver module that is probably in the side of the trunk..

using a jump start box to supply power to the fuel pump wiring directly..

the Red and black stripe gets positive power

the Brown and pink stripe gets negative power.. this will make the fuel pump run..

there is always the rubber hammer method.. while somebody cranks the engine.. another person under the side of the car pounding hard with a rubber mallot on the bottom of the fuel pump.. this will usually get your failing fuel pump running one more time at least..

i had one caravan that had a totally full tank.. there was no way to drain the gas so i used a remote starter button and a rubber hammer to pump the gas out of the tank.. only took me an hour. but its better than a huge gas spill all over..
