SOURCE: 89 thunderbird - 3.8 Car dies

i had this problem on my 88 t-bird 3.8L. not exactly sure of the cause but to remedy mine... it seems the computer was not telling the fuel pump that the car was running. so the fuel pump would quit pumping. run a wire from your battery to the positive line going to the fuel pump (temporary). if this solves the problem (and you don't mind solving it this way) make the wire run clean and hook it to a switch so you can turn it on when you wanna drive. this is not the way a dealership would fix it but its also not gonna cost you more than you probably have invested in your car. hope this helps

Dies after running about 2 minutes


It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

Die for a few hours


Check the battery and the alternator. Sounds like maybe electrical. Also the coil. I had a car once that the coil was bad and it had simular problems.

I think your problem might be your fuel relay which is situated next to the fuse box in the engine compartment.
