The above car has 85,000 miles, original 5.0 engine, except for normal maintenance items (including fuel filter replacement and PCV valve) and is in excellent condition. There is no "check engine" light. However, it has developed an irregular "stumble" at mid speed, or cruise, operation. If the car were carburetor equipped, I would describe the problem as perhaps similar to vacuum leaks in an old carburetor. I am in the Greensboro, NC area and have not found anyone competent to look at it. So, I am forced to try myself. I am an aircraft mechanic, so I have a clue, but don't want to be too arrogant :-). Is it possible to find some way to check for fault codes or does this car a common problem that occurs? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Rick

if you sqirt a little gas or starting fluid in tthe air intake and it starts for a few seconds then the igjition is probably ok since it was stored so long you could have lots of water int the gas tank or bad gas... you could have a clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump . you can have a pressure/volume test done on the fuel pump.. that will also test the fuse and fuel filter .. wow only 54k miles ..
gess hope u are not driving this with a fuel leak, it will ctach fire, have seen it happen, destroys thge car, check the fuel lines behind the fuel injection on the top of engine, fuel line coupler O rings may be leaking
