Most likely your problem is stemming from a faulty fuel pump.If in the past you have had problems taking longer than normal to start car,sluggish ect. this is a common problem.know your not alone.note there are other testes you can do.like relays and harness but that is up to you.If you can get someone to listen at fuel tank when you turn on your ignition switch to see if they can here a humming sound that is pump running.if no sound then you know for shure. I hope this helps you.

Disconnect the + wire Coils Take #1 Spark Plug Out Get a helper Use Compression Guage if not Available, Just put your finger over the Spark Plug Hole, have help BUMP the Starter over till You can Feel The Compression at your finger you need #1 at TOP DEAD CENTER on its Compression STROKE Fine tune it by using a STRAW in the Plug Hole to feel the PISTON Move UP To VERY TOP Dead center----------------------------------This is Tricky but don't Loose these Instructions------- If you have the OPTI_SPARK Ignition System My Books show all about it but Nothing on the Timing "MARK" as this is the step I Stoped at Above.. Coil Pack Ignition Will Have a Timing MARK On the Lower Harmonic Balancer. Point Being if Mark is NOT on the Degree Indicator It has JUMPED TIMING<< Surly on a Coil Pack Ignition System BUT
-------- The Opti Spark system if there is NO Timing Mark to Go by I Would Suggest Breaking Down and Letting A DEALER Handle it Unless You Can RULE that it HAS JUMPED TIME------------------------------------------------------------------------I Truly Hope I've shed some Light on Your Delima and this Leads you to a Smooth running Chevy. PLEASE don't forget to Rate Me ------------------------------------P.S. The Opti - Spark System Has A BAD REPUTATION Just FYI Recall - Opti-Spark Distribtor, Stall/No Start, Code 16 Notes

SOURCE: Mustang stalls when trying to drive and will shut down

Measure fuel pressure on injector rail - should be 38 to 40 psi. If low or fluctuating, then replace regulator. Another possibility is the in-tank filter being clogged - rare I know, but trash in the gas tank and it's clogged.

Have 1992 capri non turbo when it gets hot it acks like it floods out and shuts down then you have to wait a couple minutes with the gas pedal to the floor before it will restart replaced the o2 sencer but...


This may be electrical. The ignition control modules commonly get heat sensitive on the capris (its happened to me twice), causing car to shut down at hot temps. Replace the igniter at the same time, bet this will fix it. Igniter is inside the distributer, module is on the outside of the dist..good luck...Chris

1991 mercury cpri starts then shuts off after 30-45 secs. does not sputter, goes off just like turning the key to the off position. Recently changed the gas tank sending unit, 600 miles ago.


Possibly the fuel pump input line was pinched when the sender was replaced...the pump and sender are connected and both must be removed from the gas tank to replace either...a new filter screen should have been installed when the pump was removed, an old screen that was repositioned could be the culprit...good luck...Chris

Solved most of this myself. Changed ING. module which solved spark problem. The injectors still would not function, help came from JUSTANSWERS by idenifying a relay tucked between the left headlight motor and the coolant recovery canister. Like the IGN. module, this relays not cheap. I found a $5 dollar used replacement from a self-pull wrecking yard from it's sister car, a 1988 mazda 323.
