Most of the 80's Thunderbirds used carbureted fuel injection (CFI) or electronic fuel injection (EFI). To my knowledge none of the mid to late 1980's Thunderbirds came with straight up good old carburators, if yours does it is an aftermarket mod. The way to tell CFI and EFI appart is that the CFI will have what is called a throttle body, which looks an awful lot like a carburator, but doesn't once you open it up, and a standard looking ring-style air filter, whereas the EFI uses a fuel injection intake (different looking intake manifold all together) and a fan with a square air filter. I have taken them apart and monkeyed with the CFI of a 1987 T-bird quite a lot. CFI means Central Fuel injection. It has an air intake that looks like the air-horn of a carburertor, but it is fuel injected. Unlike the EFI models, the fuel is not injected directly into the cylinders. Instead, at the central point - where the venturi and fuel supply would be on an old fashioned carburetor - there are two jets, under pressure from fuel pump, which spray fuel into the air rushing in thru the air horn. You can see the brown plug with 4 wires in the front of the CFI: these are the wires into the injectors. So, the gas pedal opens the way for more air, the throttle position sensor and other computer controls notice this, they send a more rapid 'pulse' to the injectors and the injectors go pssst psssst pssst pssst faster and faster and the motor gets the fuel and sucks in more air because it is going faster and then the gas pedal is lifted then the pulse to the injectors is slower pssst.........pssst ...........pst and the motor slows down to idle. Computer senses different things using sensors, but, I hope you get the idea. (Canadian models might still have carb this year)
Fuel injected. fuel injected. the 3.8 liter was never carb. it was in the 80's in other GM vehicles
38L is 10.04 US gallons.
Yes , on a 1998 Ford Windstar the fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) is in the drivers footwell behind the kick panel by the drivers left foot , by the inside hood release ( there is an access hole in the panel )
on the crank behind the front cover
Open the fuel filler door and remove the gas cap, put your ear to the filler neck and have someone turn the ignition key to the on position. If the Fuel pump is operating you should hear it buzz or hum for about 3 or 4 seconds. If you hear it buzz or hum it is working. But it does not tell you if you have the required fuel pressure to start the vehicle. A fuel pressure gauge attached to the service fitting on the fuel rail will give a fuel pressure reading. I left Chevrolet in 1998 but I believe the fuel pressure should be around 45 to 65 psi.

Not very easily if at all, and why would you want to?
it's located on the firewall right in back of the intake
They always blow the head gaskets between 70 and 100 thousand miles.
