2000 se fuel pump replacement

okay so im in desperation mode. i GOT A 2000 FORD FOCUS SE for 900.00 after my son blew my engine on my lincoln... it drives okay but stutters and sputters nere and there. after some investigation I find that its probably the fuel pump. No big deal, so I go and get a used one for 50 bucks. the only think I can find online for how to replace it has no pics and after crawling under my car it doesnt make much sense.... there are no bolts on the straps where the article says there should be blah blah blah... So any info on that would be appreciated. NEXT my daughter was shoving something in the trunk while I was idling in the driveway and my interior lights flickered and now its running really rough and my check engine light is on... what one has to do with the otehr I have no idea. I cant find my fuel pump reset button. it seems like its getting excessive gas and sputtering. now im afraid to drive it and too broke to take it in. any ideas would be greatly appreciated. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Re: 2000 se fuel pump replacement

I have a 2000 se as well and have had nothing but recalls and problems with the fuel pump. Finally Ford offers a different replacement pump with instructions for modification for the installer. I had it done because it is a significant upgrade and haven't had a problem yet.

sorry that it isn't much help, but you'll be better off with the upgrade.

and the fuel reset switch is on the passenger side, front seat, forward from the door against the side.

best of luck!

Re: 2000 se fuel pump replacement

I have actually been seeing people cut a hole under the rear seat and get to it that way, and then after silicone it back in, or make hinges and give it a latch, people have come up with some pretty crazy ways to do it, but me.... I'm going to cut the hole under the rear seat and put hinges on the door, give it a way to keep closed, and get a rubber gasket to keep it sealed well.

Other then that, I think you got to cut the straps and get new one's from Ford.

Re: 2000 se fuel pump replacement

Interesting^, Nice find (R.SLOGAN). I didn't think there was bolts for the straps.
