as far as i know, all the 2.2 liters were flex fuel
1) Check your Vin Number.... Count 8 numbers back from the front. If the number is a 6 it is flex feul, it's its a 5 it's normal....
2) Jack up your truck and under the Drivers Door Area behind the frame look at the fuel filter... if it only has one nipple on each end, it's regular fuel, if it has 2 on the backside and one on the front it is flex fuel
If the 8th didgit number is 4= 2.2 Lw/mpfi or sfi
If the 8th didgit number is 5= 2.2 w/sfi& flex fuel
It is Fuel Injected.
The 2000 Ford Taurus had 3 different engines available :The 3.0 liter " Vulcan " and the 3.0 liter " Vulcan " flex fuel version , they are both over head valve / pushrod design enginesThen there was the 3.0 liter " Duratec " which is a DOHC design
fuel filter clogged fuel pump weak fuel line clogged
disconnect fuel line between pump and carurettor.turn engine over. if you are getting fuel it will spurt out where you have disconnected the fuel line
It all depends on what year it is. and it will tell you in your owners manual if you can use what they call "flex-fuel". and don't let mechanics tell you that they can convert your engine to a flex-fuel engine. they pretty much have to rebuild everything from the pistons and camshaft to the fuel injectors. The some Saab 9-3's car use E85.
According to the 1998 Ford Taurus Owner Guide : There was not a flex fuel version of the 3.0 liter " Vulcan " engine offered on the 1998 Ford Taurus
This is the fuel composition sensor and is supposed to tell your flex fuel car what fuel it is burning. So, did you pick up a swack of water at your last fill OR The sensor may be bad
If your 2001 Ford Ranger is a FFV your 8th " character " of your VIN will be a " K " and there will be a label inside the fuel filler door indicating that it is a flexible fuel vehicle
is it getting fuel? If you cant tell for sure get a can of starting fluid and spray some down the intake tube and if it spits and sputters and kinda runs then it isn't getting fuel, If not then check your fuel pump
how do you tell if your fuel pump is working
Ummm... tell them not to flex that specific muscle...
You cannot just bypass it. Because it directly tells the engine computer how much ethanol vs gasoline percentage you are using. That directly determines what fuel ratio the computer tells the injectors. Their are replicators sold on the market for around $150 that mimic the signal to the computer that tell it your using gas only. This eliminates your ability to run E85 but everything else should be the same. You can leave the flex fuel sensor inline with the fuel system as it does nothing to affect fuel delivery. Unless of course it is plugged up.
