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?

I realise timing is most important related to solving problem getting or keeping a vehicle running, but i just found this site looking for info myself. So if you've not resolved the issue i suggest changing the coil pack

Do I need a new fuel pump if the car stalls occasionally and lurches down the road?

Have you replaced the fuel filter? It could be plugged or partly plugged.This would cause it to do the things you say it is doing.

Just quit running while driving will still turn still over, getting fuel thought filter, i dont think im getting fire. 1990 2.2L ford probe

i had the same thing happen to me after it turned 200,000 miles.

All you have is a bad electric connecter to the fuel rail it's located over by the battery and that should help your problem.
i hope this helps and good luck.

i'm on here looking beacuse mine is hard to get started.

It sounds as if you have a fuel system problem or either the exhaust may be stopped up. Have the fuel pressure checked it should be at or near 30-35 lbs if not you may need to replace the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel pump. Both are common on parts to fail.

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

The truck died,it will fire then dies,its a 1990 with a 351 fuel injection.the fuel pump is working,changed the filter,there is fuel in the line for the injectors

check to see if you have a flapper valve that operates your feul injection if you do you might have to replace it.
