Question about Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

Would you happen to know what the fuel pressure should be on a 1986 Ford Thunderbird with 3.8 L V6?

Still trying to find my issue with 86 T-bird. Pretty much narrowed it down to fuel difficulties.

1991 Ford Thunderbird V6 3.8 - Starting Issues


Maybe something wrong with inertia switch? Part of diagram so you can see inertia switch wire colors. How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Also, use a gage check proper fuel pressure, my info says 35--45 psi. I've seen fuel pumps that would run, but wouldn't make proper fuel pressure. I'm not saying the fuel pump has a problem, at the moment, I don't know?

Have 1986 thunderbird 2.3 turbo car runs but when you get on gas cuts out ease up runs fine car has sit for about 5 yrs


this sounds like a fuel flow or supply problem.you may also have a sensor problem that controls the turbo operation under different throttle and load positions for proper operations.i`ve seen turbos impellers seize or not turn freely.these are different areas to check into,note parts for these turbos and supercharged t-birds are hard to find when it comes to components as they only made them for about 3 years.

86 thunderbird... quit while driving.. traced it down to no fuel ... pump is good .. replaced relay ... still not engaging pump ... next step ?


Did you replace the fuel filter. Did you check the fuse? How do you know the pump is good? Just because you hear it running does not mean it is pumping any fuel. A fuel pressure test will verify if the pump is indeed good. If it is the OEM pump I would bet it has failed. It is rare for a pump to last 25 years.

Does a 1986 ford thunder bird have a emergency fuel cut off switch?


If it is fuel injected, then yes. Probably in the trunk behind a side panel.

Replace fuel pump in a 1986 ford thunderbird


  • hi sir how are you
  • . I believe the pump is in the tank, but it's verry easy to remove. Open the tank lid and remove the bolts on the plate around the filler tube. Dosconnect all the fuel and vent hoses and lift the plate straight up. the pump, filter and assembly are on the bottom of the **** tube.They will all come out in one piece.

86 t bird


It "won't crank?" Meaning, it won't turn over, or it won't ignite?

If it won't turn over, then it is likely the battery or starter or ignition switch.

If it does crank (turn over) but won't start, and you are specifically not getting any fuel nor spark, then it is likely the hall effect sensor (see "control module" and "pickup coil"). It is two pieces, both on the distributor. Total cost will be around $50 ~ $75 or so.

You'll have to take the distributor out to get to the device, then set timing to complete the job.
