I have a 2002 Crown Victoria LX sport 4.6L Fi SOHC 8 cylinder engine, about 95,000 miles on the engine. I had the car sit for a couple of years due to personal unfortunate reasons. Now that I'm out that situation, I tried starting the car up and the engine does turn when starting but it doesn't run. I checked the inertia switch to make sure it's pressed all the way down, replaced the fuel filter and still it wouldn't work. So I assumed that it is a bad fuel pump that is causing the problem, because I used starter fluid and the engine did started up and run but it cut off 10 seconds after starting up. My question is, do I do any other additional test to confirm that my fuel pump is bad? if so that I do the additional tests and I confirm that the fuel pump is bad, do I have to buy a new sender assembly along with the fuel pump or just keep the current sender assembly and replace the fuel pump? because there are some Crown Vic fuel pump replacement videos out there that show that they replace the whole sending assembly and fuel pump and also did some rewiring in order for the new sender and pump to work and I'm not really sure if I have to do that not.
