Fuel filter or fuel pump pressure regulator,if this does fix it then its the fuel pump itself

1987ford mustang replaced alternator started up a few times now car wont start makes aclicking sound when i turn the key over i replaced the starter,battery,cable ends, car still wont start fuel pump...


I'm leaning towards your TFI module on the Dizzy. They get hot from engine and are a known issue by ford. I included a picture of what the TFI or ignition module looks like in your Stang. Be sure to tell the store clerk if you have a auto or manual when you purchase one Good Luck Ryan MN

03 mustang gt turns over but won't start


Try shooting some starting fluid in air cleaner housing. If car starts, then shuts off after burning off starting fluid then you more than likely need a new fuel pump. But also be sure to check fuel pump fuse and relay. Hope this helps

95 GT mustang wont start


You ran the car out gas and there's air in the system.. Not the Throttle Body.. Expel the air from the system.. 1. Raise/Support your hood.. 2. Turn your key to the ign position, (listen for the fuel pump to come on).. 3. Go to the fuel rail(s) and press the Schrader Valve, (looks like a tire air valve), until only fuel comes out.. (use safety gear, especially for eyes) 4. Rinse/Collect excess fuel before cranking (careful around electrical connections)

I think i ran my mustang gt out of gas,i just got this car today from a good friend.It was idling in the drive way and then died without warning so i think it ran out of gas according to the guage!I put...


You need to make sure you put in AT LEAST 2 gallons of gas, more if the car is not level. It might take a few cycles of the key to get the fuel line primed again. A full cycle is Off-On-Start. When you turn the key to on, listen for the fuel pump. It should run for a few seconds and then shut off, turn the key to start for a few seconds and then back to off... This will have to be repeated several times. You should be able to hear the fuel pump from the drivers seat. I will be a faint hum or hiss coming from the back seats.

Car won't start and fuel pump wont shut off when I put my key in the ignition and turn the key


You may have a bad pump or fuel pressure regulator. You will need to pressure test the fuel system.

Car ran fine one day, not it will crank but not


Your fuel system requires 35-45 PSI. If you don't have this pressure in the line then your fuel filter or fuel pump is at fault.

I agree with Loringh. Also check to see if you can hear the fuel pump come on with the key in the "on" position. You should hear a hum for a few seconds.
