Cant hear fuel pump when really cold and wont start


I think I would try a new fuel pump relay. If it works, should be a cheap fix. If dealer's price is outrageous, try Napa or even a used one.

Where is the fule pressure sensor on 1998 lincoln continental


I'm not aware of a fuel pressure sensor, you have a fuel pump relay and inertia switch that powers the pump, and a fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. If there is a fuel pressure sensor, I would think it would be on the fuel rail with the injectors.
Have you replaced the fuel filter and checked the fuel pressure with a gauge ?

I think it might be a fuel delivery problem.I would check the fuel pressure and make sure its within the specs for that engine.Its sounds like it could be a weak fuel pump.When ever the engine does'nt get enough fuel to mix with the air then it causes a lean condition which will make it misfire.If it was an ignition problem it would misfire whether it was cold or hot.

1998 Lincoln Town Car cranks but does not start. Fuel pump, cam sensor, crank sensor, fuel pump relay, fuses and breakers are OK. No fuel to the injectors. What about ignition or computer


possible just not probable. you need to see if there is any pressure to fuel rail. if not youre going to have to by pass the fuel pump and see if it is getting voltage. if so then apply a seperate voltage and ground wire to the pump to see if it kicks on. come to think of it, it could be the PATS system(security) that shuts down the system. it will crank but will not fire. your ford dealer will need to reprogram the system.
