can this replace a Ford Taurus 2000 with 8th digit of VIN U?
Amy R on Jun 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, this is specific to the 8th VIN digit 2. Please view https://www.1aauto.com/search?q=fuel+pump&year=2000&model=257 and look for the listings excluding flex fuel for appropriate replacements.
Does 'detailed' application exclude or include '97 GL V6 3.0L OHV vin U?
Weird on Mar 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For the 1997 model, you would need either the 8th VIN digit 1, or the 8th VIN digit 2. The 8th VIN digit U will require a separate part.
