Question about 2000 Ford Mustang
2000 mustang 3.8 v6 doesnt start... We replaced the fuel filter, the car started after spraying carborator cleaner into the air intake, but didnt stay running... seems like gas isnt getting to the engine. The fuel pump fuse is fine, the test light lit when testing the fuse. Is this a fuel pump problem? if so how do i drop the fuel tank? guessing the fuel pump is located there... or can it be the fuel pump relay?
Verify it is your pump and not a bad crankshaft position sensor. Take off the gas cap and put your ear next to the filler hole. Have someone turn the key to run, but don't crank. If you hear a whirring sound inside the tank, the pump and relay are almost guaranteed to be ok. If the crankshaft position sensor has died, it will not tell the computer when to open the fuel injectors and therefore the fuel will not get to the engine. I would check that before spending the money and taking the time to drop the tank to change a pump that may be good.

You are looking for the constant control relay module- ( CCRM ) see below. The pump will be located inside the fuel tank.Most of the time , its the pump and not the relay but, it wouldn't hurt to check the relay out. Teh relay is housed in the CCRM. Its located behind the engine coolant reservoir.
