Question about 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX
I was driving and my car started ''sputtering'' as if was trying to dieon me and it did about 3 minutes later. When I started it back up itwould die immediately if i let it idle but would idle when i left it inpark. I got it home because it died 1 block from my house. The nextday we took it around the block so I could show a friend and it did the same thing. We would start the car, lights inside would come on but it would eventually die. The exhaust had a little black smoke but not much. Sometimes the car would not start back up at all and other times it would for a few seconds only to die. When it would start the engine just did not feel right. Please let me know if you have any ideas what it may be. Fuel Pump, too much oil in the engine? By the way, the oil was last changed in November and it is now January 23rd. Thanks for any help
92 Thunderbird wont start in cold weather. Engine turns over, makes noise but wont power up.

It is Definately the Fuel Pump. I would replace the Fuel Filter also.
