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
