    I initially answered this poll in the negative then a few days later my fuel pump failed while the car was in the garage. Had it towed to the dealer for repair--$1,300.00 job. 2002 with 46,000 miles.

    Believe you answered your own question. Keeping these cars on the road seems to make them operate much better than those that are only driven occasionally.

    The 2002 Thunderbird Blue went at 25,700 miles about two months ago.

    Yes, my fuel pump has failed on my 02 bird at 5,000 miles. Have always used the high octane fuel and because of not frequently driving, have always added fuel stabilizers Sta-Bil or Sea Foam. I am researching now on having the fuel pump replaced along with the transfer pump. Car will not start and fuel pressure at "0". Prices range anywhere from $800.00 to $1400.00 which includes the labor, and none of the estimates are from Ford or they would be a lot higher. Have also replaced all 8 COPs, much to my dissatisfaction. I have owned the vehicle since it was new and love it, but very disappointed with the cost of maintenance and NO help from Ford on the COPs!! and now this!! Unbelievable to only have 5,000 miles and to have this expense. Besides not driving it much, what am I doing wrong?

    Has anyone just replaced the 2002 fuel pump for $29.00?
    The high prices talked about on this thread must be for the entire assembly and labor.

    I thought it would be helpful to know how many owners have had to replace their pump and at what mileage. Also if you have had no fuel pump issues and your mileage.. Thanks

    If you sell now someone is going to get a great deal and you won't have gotten your money's worth out of the repair costs. You should enjoy it. The money is already spent and can't be recouped when you sell it.
