Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

My 1983 Lincoln Town Car 302 5.0L V8 won't start. It's an issue with fuel. I pulled the fuel pump and hooked it up to my battery and it pumped fuel through it just fine. When I turn the key over I cant hear it prime anymore. I figure it's the fuel pump relay but I can't find out where the thing is located. So if anyone knows where it's located and can refer me to an image of the location I would greatly appreciate it. And also a quick how to on how to check if the relay is working properly with a volt meter.

1983 lincoln town car fuel pump comes on for 2 seconds thats it then has no power.

It needs several signals to continue running. You do have a fuel pump Relay which can kick out.

Check the fuel pressure test port to see if pressure is maintained. The crankshaft position sensor sends info to regulate fuel pressure.

I have a 1998 Lincoln Town Car Catier. It seems like it won't start when it is cold, but after I let gas out of the valve on the fuel rail, it starts right up. What could be the problem?

This problem is caused by a defective fuel pressure check valve in the outlet of the in tank electric fuel pump. The part is a ball and spring check valve and it is leaking. This allows pressure to bleed off and this causes an air pocket, the air pocket causes the hard starting. The pump is located inside the the fuel tank and is sold as one part, sending unit for gage and pump, it is called the fuel pump module.
