Question about 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX

1 Answer

Sound like tractor, whenever you try to speed up it starts gargli

Hi

This is Charles from Switzerland. I have a problem with my Thunderbird LX (1997, 4.6l, V8). When the engine gets warm, it starts to sound like tractor, whenever you try to speed up it starts gargling.
First I thought it was the varvle that had to be set again, but the Ford garage told me this varvel is hydraulic so it can't be that. So I guess it's the timing chain that has to be changed (the car already has 150'000 miles). What do you think about this?

best regards charles

I got a 97 ford thunderbird lx when i try and srart it it turns over but wont start?


sounds lie a bad fuel pump. replace your fuel filter first, if that doesnt work then you may need to drop the fuel tank to get the pump out.
