Question about 1990 Ford Probe

1 Answer

Fuel problems sensors or relays?

Changed a fuel pump and fuel filter in my 1990 ford probe because was having problems getting fuel to the motor. It still is having problems. I thought the fuel pump wasn't cooling with return fuel but, now I'm stumped. If the car is cool it starts and runs for a few minutes. It seems as it warms up something shuts the fuel down. Then as it cools again it will start again. I'm wondering if anyone else has run into a problem like this and where the fuel pump realy is on a 1990 ford probe?

Replaced fuel pump,strainer,fuel filter,battery,computer,car will only start when you pour gas down air intake.

Sorry this vehicle does not have a fuel shut off switch or inertia switch > that's ford ! If you pour fuel in the throttle body an it runs It's something with the fuel system , an if you replaced the pump an filter an regulator , It has to be electrical ! did you check voltage at the fuel pump relay ? What engine does yours have , 2.5 , 3.3 L ? There is a in line fuse for the fuel pump near the relay ! There are four relays front right of engine compartment mounted on radiator support cross member . The one for fuel pump is the one on the inside . Fuse is near there an there is a connector not connected to anything ,this is for fuel pump prime . Jump battery voltage to it a see if it runs then ! or replace relay !

I have a 1990 ford f-150 4x4 that is not getting fuel to the engine. I have changed both fuel tanks and pumps, checked the fuel filter and relays. Please help.

A mechanic would check the injectors for voltage and for a ground signal from the computer.
The injectors get power from the EEC relay near the battery.
The ECM computer gets a signal for the coil and the injectors from the module mounted on the side of the distributor.

89 ford probe wont start, engine cranks , battery charged, inverta switch seems ok have continuity between switch, check ingnition coil - ok , spark in # 1 spark plug , check all fuses - ok , fuel...

Check for fuel pressure on the fuel rail while turning the key to start,if there is fuel pressure(enough)then the injectors are not pulsing(allowing fuel into the intake).The pick up coil in the distributor,will be the problem,unless it is distribuless ignition,then the cam sensor would be at fault.

Check the fuel pump relay or the ASD relay. Using a fuel pressure tester, make sure you have the proper fuel pressure.

1990 ford f250 cranking not starting

Make sure it is getting gas; check the fuel filter and fuel pump and any fuel pump relays. If it is fuel injected make sure your getting current to the injectors and check the relay. You might also want to check the starter solenoid and your ignition wires, distributor, distributor cap, rotor, etc... You don't say if this problem occurred suddenly or if it's been an ongoing.

Car won't start.1991 Ford Probe

check your fuel rail on the intake. if you are not getting fuel there the blockage is in the lines, if you are getting fuel there then it is your injectors clogging up
