Question about 1995 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

My 95 tbird just started acting up a few days ago. It runs then dies and sometimes won't start. Could it be the fuel pump? Starting fluid into the throat body makes it run better. It was running fine and then all of a sudden this started. I replaced the ignition coil and checked the module and don't know what else to do.

    Ok it shuts off when it gets hot? Does it start once it cools off? will it start with starting fluid is added?(while hot) to check pump pull fuel line before filter and turn key to run position.fuel should flow.

Yes check the fuel pump PSI, then check the ESC(electronic spark control), or the crank position sensor good luck

I have a four 150 model 95, few day ago I was running on my truck but then out of nowhere turn off busy it self and didn't want to star! What should I do?


Make sure the fuel pump buzzes when turning key to on, but not trying to start vehicle. If it does your fuel pump should be ok. Now check for spark at a plug wire.

That sounds like the fuel pump may have lost it's prime. Does it have fuel injection, or a carburetor on the engine? How much gas was in the tank while it was parked on an incline? Have you tried any starting fluid sprayed into the air intake hose, toward the engine? Warning! Don't use much starting fluid! Perhaps a one or two second burst, and have someone crank it immediately after you have stepped back at least 6 feet from the engine. If it fires, then it is definitely a fuel delivery problem! But it won't run long like that unless the fuel pump starts working again ... which is most likely when the engine is cold!

Won't start. New battery. Turns over but won't start.


These trucks are known for fuelpump problems. the first thing to check is to see if its got fuel pressure, try sparying starting fluid into throtlbody and see if it starts and runs for a few seconds, if it starts then you will know its a fuel problem, it will die out once the starting fluid is burnt up but at least it will tell you its a fuel problem and if it does start i would bet its the pump. good day.

It won't die when pulling the relay because it has another power path to the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch .

Plus when it won't start ,don't guess or theorize ! Test what's missing ? check for spark , no spark check ignition system , coil's , ignition module , crank sensor etc... has spark ,do a fuel pressure test etc... don't think computer , when it won't start does the check engine light come on with the key on run not start .

It's hard to figure out whats going on with out any codes. Im thinking maybe the fuel pump. To check it after it stops and doe'snt start squirt some starting fluid into the carb and see if it wants to start. If it trys to start then it's a fuel problem.

1996 Chevy Silverado 1500 Starting Problems


Just from what you said it sounds like your vehicle might not be holding its residual pressure which means after you turn a vehicle off, your fuel injection system should hold a certain amount of pressure in the system, but if that pressure drops to fast your vehicle may have a hard time starting. Things to look for when you lose fuel pressure is the fuel pressure regulator may be leaking, fuel pump check valve,leaky fuel injector or they maybe a small leak in one of the fuel lines. I only suggested this cause i had a car with the similar problem.
