Customer Question

does a 2010 lincoln mkx have a fuel pump strainer? If so, is it located externally or internally of the pump?
JA: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?
Customer: original. I am currently getting my gas tank replaced (recall) and was informed that the fuel filter is located in the pump - hence, impractical to replace. In researching heard about a fuel pump strainer. Is it the same as a fuel filter?
JA: Are you fixing your MKX yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: no. at the dealer. But figured that while they have the tank down to replace any accessible fuel filters. Was told the fuel filter is in the pump, so its impractical to replace but heard about a fuel pump strainer and am wondering is that the same a fuel filter?
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

strainer is a filter sock they generally never fail unless a contaminate enters your fuel system..and yes the tank and pump need to be removed for replacement..if there is no runnability issues its not a required maintenace service
