SOURCE: 89 thunderbird - 3.8 Car dies

i had this problem on my 88 t-bird 3.8L. not exactly sure of the cause but to remedy mine... it seems the computer was not telling the fuel pump that the car was running. so the fuel pump would quit pumping. run a wire from your battery to the positive line going to the fuel pump (temporary). if this solves the problem (and you don't mind solving it this way) make the wire run clean and hook it to a switch so you can turn it on when you wanna drive. this is not the way a dealership would fix it but its also not gonna cost you more than you probably have invested in your car. hope this helps

89 SC STARTS AND RUN GOOD ABOUT 5 MIN THEN STUMBLES AND PINGS AND DOESNT PICK UP SPEED FUEL PRESURE IS FINE BUT SEEMS BE TO LEAN


make sure oxygen sensors are good, also check injectors,make sure fuelpreasure is up to specs, and last check your mass air flow sensor, they go bad very often or get very dirty.try cleaning first but i would replace it if it is dirty, sometime you can get lucky and clean but sometimes not, good luck.

I have a 89 thunderbird with overheating problems


If you have a metal radiator take it out and have a radiator shop repair it. If it plastic/aluminum you might be able to have a radiator shop replace the tank or you will need a new radiator. NOTE!!! Epoxy will not work!!
