Fuel pressure should be about 138psi or more. So there is a little animal called a fuel pump regulator that the ECU tells what the engine needs from the fuel pump, my guess is that is the problem, perhaps not the fuel pump. Low fuel pressure, in spite of DIY may be the fuel pressure regulator which if and appears to be bad would give you this low pressure. There should be ECU error codes that identify fuel system problems. Ask your favorite Auto parts store (nicely) to read the codes for you.

It is located on the left frame rail in front of left rear tire.It has a plastic clip in each fuel line that will be white in color.Remove the clip then disconnect fuel line.Make sure to replace the clips,DO NOT reuse the old ones. Install the new clips into the connector then snap the connectors on to the filter.

SOURCE: 1996 2.2 liter. Starving for fuel

There are a few other things taht could be causing fuel starvation. First of all, did you pull the injectors and clean out the individual filters? There are small, conical screens inside the top of each injector, and they could be clogged. Second, There could be some carbon build-up on the intake valves, which would act like a sponge for the fuel after initial start-up. A can of BG44K fuel system cleaner from NAPA will get rid of that. If it is neither of these, the fuel pressure regulator could be leaking. Other than this, the car would need to be diagnosed by a shop before action is taken. I hope this helps you!

Testimonial: "I ended up taking the car to a local shop for diagnosis. It turns out that the fuel pump is week and not supplying enough pressure to the motor. "

98 lincoln town car will start but runs only for a few seconds to a few minutes then shut off


U need to check your crankcase starting sensor. OR it could be a fuel problem. Usually fuel pump doesn't allow the car to start at all. So it shouldn't be that. But it could be an extremely clogged filter.

Replace the fuel filter first. When you turn the key on, the fuel pump should run for a few moments, then turn off. If it keeps running, then replace the pump as well. Suggest having the fuel system pressure checked at the engine itself. Hope this helps!

The van starts, but then shuts off within a few seconds.


Check fuel pressure, replace fuel filter, then check pressure again. If the pressure comes up significantly, the filter was the problem. If not, you'll need a new fuel pump.
