    I need to replace fuel pump on my 2005 Ford Explorer. I purchased a fuel pump which the Auto Store matched and it doesn't match my fuel pump. Mine has a oblong female plug-in molded into the top of fuel tank. The one I purchased has two leads with male plug-in's one square and one round.
    Why the differance and How do I convert fuel pump attachments ?

    Welcome to the forum. Do you have a V-8 or a V-6 in the Explorer? They may be different depending on the engine, because if it has flex fuel it may be different.

    Check your vin, the V6 4.0 comes as either a flex fuel which is vin k or regular which is vin E. I believe it's the 8th digit in the VIN number. Flex fuel will use a different pump than regular.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I've spoke to Auto Store after Auto Store & Never got that info. Mine has a K. After getting that info I called the Auto Store and they still state that's the only fuel pump for my vehicle. As I stated the fuel pump that came out has a female plug in molded into the top of fuel pump and the one I purchased has two male pigtails coming out. Thier stating to plug in the pig tails directly to the vehicles computer and bypass the female plug in. Does that sound Correct to you??? I really appreciate your HELP!

    Not to sound rude, could you please check again on your engine size? That fuel pump is used in the v8 4.6. the 4.0 uses the pump with the double connector

    Hey Mike, I just wanted to give you a personal thanks for your help and knowledge on my fuel pump. After gathering the knowledge from you, I've been told that for a short span between 2004 & 2005 Ford put in the fuel pump that is in my vehicle. This has become a Pain In The A.. When I finally get to the bottom of this I'll post it just to save other people with thus same problem alot of time and headaches.
    Thanks Again!,

    Hey, Thanks for the post, and No, I don't consider anyone that's trying to help or has knowledge rude. I do have a V6 flex, and from what I've been Told, for a short time span between 2004 & 2005 Ford did put the fuel pump that I have into the Explorers and discontinued them & that's why I'm running into the problems that I am having. When I get to the bottom of this, I'll make a post to avoid other people having the same problem. Take Care & thanks for responding

    My donor car was a 2002 flex fuel v6 that I took the motor and trans from for my 2005. It's a junk car now but it ran fine before that, I'll drop the tank Friday and see what pump it used. I wonder if it would be possible for you to put in a pump from the 4.6

    Dropping the tank won't take long on that since I've already removed the driveshafts and cross members and drained the tank. If that pump matches yours I'll let u know if you'd like pm me your address I'll send you the pump. That car is just a parts car and if the pump matches yours it wouldnt match with my 05

    This may be a stupid question but why not replace just the pump and not the whole sender unit

    I wouldn't go that far but replacing just the pump itself is better than the cost of a whole unit
    Plus you have more control over what pump is in there the sending unit is motorcraft and works to boot ....edit ....I see the sending unit is broken.
