I have a 1990 mustang 5.0 GT that don't not want start. I have fuel pressure and I have spark. The car has been sitting for one year now, I can't get it to start, acting like its out of time


Try starting fluid. Gas is probably bad and needs to be drained. The engine will fire or run briefly with starting fluid verifying a fuel problem.

1995 taurus won't start


The dash lights coming on doesn't mean your battery is strong enough to turn the car over. That being said, I would lean towards the starter also. I would just have the battery chkd out before you go replacing other things just to be sure. Good luck to you.

I have a 92 mustang lx 2.3 and it won't start. There is no fire at the plugs, and I can't hear the fuel pump kick on. The reset on the fuel pump is not popped out, so it is good. Any help woul


I would check the EEC relay and the fuel pump relay for power and ground signals first. Both circuits are controlled by the ignition key switch. The fuel pump should be powered for 3 seconds when you turn the key on.

It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may just have system failure. As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for at least 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

This thing really happens and reconnecting the positive battery connector serves like a jumpstart to the vehicle's PCM (powertrain control module).

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Check the ignition switch to see if it's coming apart. You will have to remove the lower trim on column. The electrical switch will separate causing your concern. Good luck.

Hearing the fuel pump still doesn't verify it has fuel pressure.
Could be the coil is shot. Can you verify 'spark' ?
Lets go thru the very basics first. I will try to run you thru the tests. Fuel pressure - you need the correct gauge attached to the fuel rail. For spark you can get by - by pulling one plug and holding it by the plug wire boot (put it back in the boot for this part), and then ground it to a head bolt, and have someone turn the motor over while you verify for a strong, blue spark. Yellow or red indicates a bad coil or part in the ignitio system.

Truck runs rough


Sounds like one of your chambers isn't firing. Run your car for a few minutes, shut it off then pull your plugs one at a time and see if one of them is wet. Might just need a new plug.
