Question about 2006 Ford Thunderbird
Car keeps shutting off. It will run for a while than just totally shut off. Husband has changed the fuel pump. It ran for a while than shut off again. Missing a lot of time at work because of this problem. Please help.
Depending on which type of carburetta this car has, it may be that the rubber diaphram has a tiny pinprick of a hole in it. This will affect the vacumn and the fuel control. An easy way to test this is to allow the car to rest without the engine running for a few minutes, start the engine an increase the power whilst at a standstill and see how long it takes before the engine shuts down, then let it rest again for a few minutes, start the engine and let it run just on tick over, if it carries on running for a much longer period than before then you may have the answer.
Hope this helps Bomber667
