Question about 1985 Lincoln Town Car
1985 Lincoln Town Car with a Ford 302 5.0liter V-8
My engine will only stay on if I work the gas pedal. Not just applying more gas, but Working the gas pedal if I try to keep it in one position the engine dies. There is no fuel pressure problem. The fuel pump works fine and the fuel filter is not clogged. The throttle body is getting fed fuel. There is also spark, plenty of it. I started the engine and fed fuel to the throttle body through an IV type thing that I made and the engine ran perfectly. Since there is spark and fuel is being fed to the throttle body it means there is something wrong with the electronic fuel injection system.
The engine is fed by two fuel injectors through a throttle body. When the car first stopped working there was an electrical short somewhere. The front, left turning signal light blew and the dashboard light fuse blew. Again I can keep the engine running only if I work the gas pedal or else it shuts off. I also have narrowed it down to the fuel injection system.
I'm good with cars but I'm new to fuel injection systems. I just ordered a manual for my car so I could get a wiring diagram. I need someone to point me to the right direction. Where do I start first? What Should I test first, and How?
