Question about 1987 Ford Thunderbird

87 T-bird hesitating

When I maintain crusing speed with my foot on the accelerator, the car will do a hesitating ****.. when I take my foot off the accelerator, it stops, when I accelerate quickly it does not do it. I have replaced the fuel injectors and the last mechanic did not find anything when hooked up to the diagnostic machine..

Sounds similar to our problem: idle too fast; hesitating, surging, especially on freeway. Our mechanic replaced the throttle dashpot, which has an electric motor and gears -- gears on ours were stripped and he said computer could not sense where throttle position was, thus the hesitating. But unlike yours, this did cause a trouble code that he read and knew the problem. Part cost $188 new, and somewhat hard to find. That fixed our problem. Car runs really nice now.

When cruse is set, why does it not hold going down hill


Cruise control only maintains speed by utilizing the accelerator. To speed up it increases it and during slowing is removes it. The cruise control will not apply brakes in the event of a steep downhill run. In this case the vehicle will start to accelerate in the same manner as if the cruise control was not engaged. But in theses cases, most cruise controls, once the speed exceeds a certain amount above the set speed, will auto-disengage as a safety feature.

Most people use their feet on the <i>accelerator</i>, making it more difficult to maintain a constant pressure and led to excessive gas consumption. Unit with the foot flat on the pedal, the damper on the <b>accelerator</b> a little, and reduce their speed on the road

I want to know how to use my cruise control in my 1994 Toyota pickup. It has all the buttons and the capability but the words are scratched off and i don't have a manual.


Generally... There is ON/OFF - SET - ACCELERATE/RESUME, COAST/DECELERATE. Cruise is available at speeds above 35mph or so. Sometimes there is no main on/off. Cruise on a turn signal stem has a button that pushes in on the end, push when at desired speed. resume/accelerate slides to right, is spring loaded and return left when released. the same lever when slid left is coast/decelerate. Momentarily sliding accelerate and releasing increases crusing speed by a couple mph. If brakes are used cruise disengages, sliding resume returns you to cruise speed after braking. Coast/decelerate disengages cruise, when at desired lower speed hit set. On some, hitting set not needed, when coast is released speed is maintained. Variations may be up/ down instead or may be steering wheel face mounted. Please rate answer. Duct tape is like the force, it has a dark side.. a light side.. and holds the universe together!

Brake lights inop on my 88 T-bird


Check your brake light switch. If your car has cruse control, set it at a safe speed and step lightly on the brake pedal and release. If it doesnt disengage then brake light switch is bad.
