SOURCE: Possible problems associated with replacing the fuel pump.

no to all of your questions the fuel tank (pump is in tank)is in a completely different location. I would question weather your mechanic is trust worthy, this may have been a "make work" deal for your mechanic. however it is possible that it's merely a coincidence.

SOURCE: 1992 lincoln town car fuel filter

It is located on the left frame rail in front of left rear tire.It has a plastic clip in each fuel line that will be white in color.Remove the clip then disconnect fuel line.Make sure to replace the clips,DO NOT reuse the old ones. Install the new clips into the connector then snap the connectors on to the filter.

SOURCE: hard to shift into first gear

Tighten clutch cable until the car would start to move when the clutch peddle is 50% depressed, Before you do that, with the clutch fully depressed and in 2nd gear, start the car and slowly let off the clutch. You may find that the clutch has to be released virtually all the way before the car moves. It should be at about that 50% I spoke about

It likely has nothing to do with your fuel pump. The pump is not located anywhere near the transmission. It could be that your transmission switching unit is not working right. You should take the car in to a mechanic or transmission shop. This is likely not a problem you can solve on your own.

My transmission wont shift from 2nd to 3rd gear


did you drop the pan replace the filter and add four to five quarts,If still a problem try doing a full transmission flush at a quick lube.
A transmission flush with Lucas trans tune up will probably fix your non shift issue, try this first before looking into a new tranny !
