Check the fuel pressure, could be the fuel pressure regulator. also check fire if the fuel pressure is ok. weak fire could cause this

87 thunderbird turbo coupe misfire from idle until 3g then hitting boost n runs smooth


check that the turbo is actually working at the lower rpms.check to see if it is a variable vane turbo where the vanes for the turbine wheel can be altered to produce boost at lower rpms. The vanes are controlled by a actuator on the turbo and is controlled by a vacuum hose controlled by the ECM. The misfiring may be actually over fuelling ( mixture too rich as the boost is too low for the mixture)

1988 ford t-bird turbo coupe 2.4 i'v got fuel to the fuel filter and the fuel filter is clean if i spray stating fluid in the air intake the engine will run until out of ether so whats the problem from...


It is your fuel pump it has to put out at least 30psi at the fuel rail. Regardless of how much gas you think its getting its not enough. Replace the fuel pump.

There's fuel to the engine but it will not fire it


Check your inertia switch in the trunk and press to reset it. See if you hear the pump run when you turn the key. Then try to start it. If it has been awhile since fuel filter time, you could do a fuel sample and replace the filter. You must have some type of spark to ignite the starting fluid, but your TPS switch regulates fuel pressure and spark advance. A code reader would be a nice thing to use right now. You may want to look at the timing belt for shredding. I hope this helps you.
