Answers :

1st you'll need to drop that gas tank from under your car. at gas cap there are 3 scrwes you will need to remove to disconnect the inlet hose @ return hose. after that you will have to remove gas tank holding straps[metal straps remove the 2 bolts that hold those straps up.[caution; the tanks weight depends on how much fuel is in it]after you drop down straps you will have to undo the plug in for fuel pump, disconnect the electrical plug in. then you'll need to disconnect the filler @ return hoses from tank. then you have to disconnect the fuel lines to engine from the tank. [special fuel line removal tool required] after tose are undone from tank, slide tank from under car. the pump casing[top of fuel pump casing] will have to be marked w/chalk or grease pen to assure pump @ fuel lines get installed same way they were disconnected.now to disconnect lock that holds pump into gas tank. w/straight screwdriver positioned on lockringn tap scrwedriver w/hammer to loosen @ turn lockring to unlock fuel pump. after lockring removed, gently remove fuel pump and sending unit attached to pump.install new pump and follow directions reversed to install [lines,electrical connections, do not attempt to start engine until gas is in tank.

I have a 2003 Ford Taurus SEL, the check engine light is on and when I had them run the codes they said it was running "lean" on both banks. What could cause this?

I cant get an inspection sticker until the check engine light is taken care of. Any help would be very appreciated.
