Question about 1989 Ford Merkur Scorpio
Since i bought my '94 ford scorpio almost a year ago, it has thrice wouln't crank in the morning. I got back there later at noon time and it started.
sometimes it starts and the engine would not run smoothly, it would not even rev properly, sometimes it starts and revs very well, presently it's just cranking, but does not start. I've not been able to use it inthe last 2wks.
pls bail me out.
Dear Dapsy, Sorry the Scorpio is acting up. Do you have maintenance records from previous owner? That might give you a hint. Otherwise, please let us know you have performed the basic checks: new battery, fresh gas and oil, a little TLC under the hood by checking battery connections, etc. Otherwise, I think you are in for a trip to the mechanic. Sorry, I wish I could be more help.
(another bummer, I was going to refer you to CAR TALK - but that call-in radio show is going off the air. :(
Let us know if you have any more info to share about the car.

It is an older car now, so could possibly be one or a few things. You would be best getting a mechanic to have a look at it.
It could be something simple like it needs a fresh battery, or a new set of plugs and leads.
There are so many things it could be though.
You are best to get it checked out properly.
It will be a lovely car to own once it is sorted :-)

on both a 7.3l and 6.0l oil pressure is everything. Both engines use two oil pumps one for lubrication and one to fire the injectors. if your high pressure oil pump (inj pump) is weak it will take a long time for the truck to start. In order for the ficm to fire the injectors it wants to see at least 250 - 400 psi of ICP pressure. you will need a scanner to determine your high oil pressure at crank. Let me know how you make out.

remove the air filter housing from the throttle body, or if its mult-ported injection, remove the large air duct. Do this the night before. The next day, before cranking and having a spray can of carb. cleaner, spray a couple of shots of carb cleaner either into the large air duct, spray towards the engine, or if its single body injection, spray directly on to the throttle body.
Crank engine immediately, preferrably have some one else sitting in the car to start it after you spray.
If the car even tries to start, replace cold start relay.

Your issue is your cylinder head is dead, and most likely has caused damage to the piston on the dead cylinder. A compression test will show you have a dead cylinder. You should have no less than 100 psi compression on any cylinder. I have personally seen this issue on escorts over 50 times.
