Question about 1989 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

I have a 1989 Ford Crown Vic. Here lately the car will die going down the road. It will usually start right back up. SO, I replaed the in line fuel filter and it was fairly dirty. It ran great for a few days and started doing this again. I thought maybe the IAC and unplugged it and ran good for a day. Ran fine this morning till I stopped and it died in the driveway and will won't run. What could cause this???

Most likely the fuel pump,when the fuel filter gets that restricted,it most of the time,is not long before the fuel pump goes out,because of the strain on the pump.

I replaed the intake manifold on my 2002 crown vic and now it wont start it was running before i did ot

4.6L? Does it crank? Coil wires on? Are all the injector wires back in the right place? Did you check your fuses? Wires pinched? Ground wires back in place? Alternator plugged back in? Air box on and plugged in properly? Fuel rail on properly? Just retrace the steps you took last. It will be an "oh, yeah" moment, Paul

Crown Vic wont turn over.

I would check the plugs around and on the engine. Also check to see if the inertia switch in the trunk was tripped, that cuts off power to the fuel pump in an accident.

Its been in for electrical work, now it just seems to lose all power and slowly die. this morning it kind of caught it self picked back up and kept going but after that it died totaly i can usualy restart...

Have you checked or changed your fuel filter lately. The particles in the filter dam up while the engine is running. When it stalls, all the particles fall back away from the outlet so the engine will start again allowing the particles to dam up...etc etc.

1988 Ford Crown Vic Strange Idle

When you turn the key on does the check engine light come on? If not it may be burned out. It sounds like a MAP sensor or an O2 sensor is bad. I would suggest taking it to autozone as they do free diagnostic and seeing if a code comes up. If it is a sensor it should, if not it may be the idle sensor not reading right in the ECU. More than likely it is one of the sensors though.
