This answer was rated:

I have a 1989 Ford Festiva with a fuel pump problem. where is it located and what will it take to change out?

Hello, I am John, a Ford dealer technician.

I hope I can help solve your problem quickly and accurately.

 

Is your Festiva carburated or fuel injected?

 

Thanks,

fuel injected.

The fuel pump is located in the tank on your car. If you remove the rear seat cushion there is an access panel underneath so you can easily remove the pump assembly. Here is a pic for further reference.

the parts store ordered a mechanical pump. they did not ask me if it was injected or carbureted. did they order the wrong one?

Yes it sounds like it. They offered both models in 89. Only the carb model uses the mechanical pump. You need the one in the tank.
