Hey guys, it's been a while! As some of you know, I recently moved back to Norway. I left my Mustang standing in the garage at our house here, and now, four months later, I'm back here on vacation. My goal was to sell my Mustang within the time period we're here, as we might be selling our house, resulting in me not having anywhere to store my Mustang.
Before I start; we have checked all the fuses and relays, they all work fine. We have also checked the fuel pump inertia switch, which is good to go.
The battery is almost dead, but I have tried jump starting my car to get it running. The battery is charging, and the car turns over, but it doesn't fire. The first tries it did fire at an uneven rate, which has turned out to only be leftover fuel in the fuel lines. There is fuel in the tank; however, it has been under half full. We have tried starting the car by spraying some starter spray into the intake, with the success that the engine fired up, but shut right down. Now we know that the spark plugs are good, so we unhooked one of the fuel injectors and tested the voltage, and they are getting power. We proceeded to unhook the main fuel line going into the fuel rails as we were getting more and more certain that the engine is not getting any fuel at all. Not even a single drop came out of the line.
My father and I have researched some, and we have concluded that either the fuel pump is bad, or either the FPDM (Fuel Pump Drive Module) or Fuel Pump Relay (which is part of the CCRM). Tomorrow I will test the different wires with a multimeter to see if the fuel pump and FPDM get's any power at all.
Now, my question is, what do you guys think? Replacing the fuel pump will be on h*ll of a job to do, especially now that I am here on vacation, and there is no way in h*ll that I am paying someone to do it for me either. I am hoping it's either a bad FPDM or a problem with the CCRM, which would be the easier to fix of the three. Has anybody else had any similar problems? Does anyone have some good instructions on how to lower the gas tank to remove and replace the fuel pump? I know roughly how to do it, but some good instructions would help speed up the process.
Thank you guys, and sorry for the long post, I just like to be thorough.
