SOURCE: car won't start

Maybe he also installed kill switch that you don't know about.  Ask previous owner.
If not, maybe one the wires on his switch has come off or has corrosion.

SOURCE: starting problems

This is caused by the PCM not powering up. I would replace the PCM power relay in the battery junction box(fuse box under hood).

This sounds as if the (pcm) Powertrain control module has a ground circuit. It will need to be replaced.

We have a 97 ford thunderbird lx 4.6l v8.....and it turns over but wont fire we taught it was the fuel filter but that was not it...any one know what it mite be?


I've been there, done that and have the T-Shirt for it.
It can basically be only one of several things.

If you are smelling any gasoline when you crank, then you don't have ignition but you have fuel. Kind of obvious, I know, but I have to try to cover all of the bases.

If you have ignition but no fuel, you won't smell any gas but you can check for spark by taking a spark plug wire off, leaning it on the engine metal and seeing if it sparks. If it sparks, You got ignition.

On a Ford, one can insert the plug into the coil in such manner that one of the electrical contact prongs to the primary side (12 Volt) can be bent out of the way so that there is no primary voltage going to it. That will get you the cranks all year award.

I purchased a 1990 Lincoln Continental (built on an extended Taurus-Sable platform years ago from someone who could not get it started for a year. After working on it for a couple of days I went down with a good flashlight and discovered one of the primary contact was bent to one side. Straightened it out, plugged it in and the car started as though nothing was ever wrong.

It could be the timing chain has skipped or broken or the Distributor drive gear is out of sync.

Here is the last one. In a Ford there is an automatic fuel shut off in the trunk on the driver's side wall. It is tripped by the vibration of an accident and sometimes it likes to trip on it's own. It is behind the grey trunk covering. It has a reset button. PUSH IT.

I've heard stories of people on the verge of tears selling their beloved but very dead Ford to some guy, who opens the trunk, pushes the button and then drives it away.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

In bleeding brakes on my 97 T-bird does the engine need to be on or only the ignition..??


Hi:
The engine doesn't need to be on, but since your car most likely has power brakes, the engine being on would make it easier to bleed, since the pedal would push easier!
