    My Ford Aspire just stopped at a light and will not start, it has fuel and cranksover good. It did not pause or bog down just stopped, and now it won't crank. Does it have a coil and could this be electrical?

The Injectors share a ground find it.redo it. And check the conditon of wires that hook to your distributor. Its a very good idea to replace about 3 inchs of the harnest wire from the distributor plug in. especialy the black wire with the pink stripe. Trust me ive seen the exact senario before. You stop engine tips just right and snaps the frail wire. Keep it simple

Fuel pump will also work but not pump. take fuel line off to see if there is any careful to cover your eyes there might be enough presher to satisfiey the line but not the motor. or check crank sensor this also tells the computor to start.

have someone listen to your gas tank while turning the key from off to run. if theres no sound, goto the rear passenger side fender cover and remove (inside the van) theres a little red button down in the rear corner. check to make sure its pushed in (inersia switch for fuel cutoff). also check fuses. if you hear the pump check, the fuel filter.

I replaced fuel pump on my 1997 aspire and the car would start and idle smoothly,but when I drive it to the corner and stop and try to make the turn,it would start to sputter and then die.It would not...

Yes it can be the fuel pressure regulator. You may also have a fuel pump that is pumping but is very weak. I would for sure replace the burnt rotor. Check the distributor cap for cracks. Are you sure you did not install the filter in reverse? If you know it is correct a fuel pressure test is in order to see if you have enough fuel pressure.

Just for the hell of it replace the fuse with a new one relative to the fuel pump also clean and inspect all electrical plugs and connections associated with the fuel system. There may be a bad ground with out the truck in front of me it will be difficult to go any further it is possible the pump is not creating enough pressure to close the relay have you replaced the fuel filter? If possible do a fuel pressure check at the fuel rail it should be 30 - 40 psi if not replace the pump.

Car died after stopping at a light and proceeding up a small hill

Let's start with the simple things. Change the fuel filter first and check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. The fuel pressure should be 60 to 65psi with the fuel line pressurized and should drop by 5 psi when engine is running. Keep me posted, be glad to help.If there is an Auto Zone around your area you can lone out a fuel pressure gauge and they will have the step y step instructions for you to get the job done. Good luck.
