Question about 1987 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

I have a 1987 Ford Thunderbird that stalls while stopping after the car has warmed up to operating temperature. Once the car has stalled 3 times you have to wait almost a day before it will restart.

If someone has adjusted the idle speed or taken off vacuum lines check that first. If it was sudden I would say bad gas but it should do it when cold too. Its possible your fuel pump is failing when it starts to warm up. You might try a new fuel filter, if it is clogged it may overwork the fuelpump.

Stalls when at a stop but not always

This may not be the answer, but check for a vacuum leak.

1989 bronco2; when making turns it cuts out and try's to die.

Test the fuel pressure regulator. Could be the engine coolant temperature sensor. My son's BII was doing that, we flushed the system with a flush kit from Advanced Auto, this cured the stalling. A friend had suggested changing the coolant sensor before we flushed, it looks like he was right.
