Question about 1987 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

I have a mazda b2300 with a thunderbird 2.3 turbo engine. took it out in the mud and killed it. waited about 3 hours and i fired up but was chugging. i made it home and sprayed it off. it then started fine and ran the next day. then suddenly died out of nowhere. i have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, control module on distributor, distributor cap and rotor.. still no start. turns over fine but will not run. if i put gas in intake it starts but barely runs on the fumes then dies when the fuel i put in intake evaporates.

Sounds like a fuel issue. Check the fuel lines for good flow.

SOURCE: truck starts, dies. truck runs good some days,bad the next

I've had as similar problem with my '90 f150 5.0l, i would clean out the IAV(idle air valve) on the side of the throtlebody with some carb cleaner. If that doesn't work you might have to repalce the whole IAV assembly.

2 solutions: first, ignition control module is getting hot and shutting car down. 2nd; you didn't mention your dash(service soon) lights were on.<p>
You said the fuel filter was pretty clogged up. It's sounds like a bad case of EGS(ethanol gas syndrome). The ethanol;being a corn deritive;acts like corn liquor(which is what is is), and turns the fuel to goop, and adds large amounts of water through out all the systems.<p>
It clogs up the fuel lines,the injectors, and ruins fuel pumps. It also puts heavy carbon on egr valves, int. and exh. valves, and can ruin oxy sensors, and catalytic converters.<p>
Let's try the cheapest way first:Buy a can of SEAFOAM and Berkline 2+2 at your parts store. Take out the oxy sensor(s) and clean the ends using the 2+2 and re-install.
Then change out the fuel filter again. Pour the SF into a tank of PREMIUM(only) gas. Change the pcv valve. Then start vehicle and let idle for 3-5 min(even if you have to rev it up to do it to get the SF flowing through the system), and then drive it 10 hard miles.<p>
Replace that fuel filter, and then let it idle some more. Your car sounds like it is really messed up bad. Unless you take it to a garage that has a fuel system cleaner machine, this is the best way to do it.<p>
After this, add SF every 3-5000 miles to your tank. It will prevent this from happening again. Also; to be on the safe side. Have a PSI check on your fuel pump. This goop could have burnt it up. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: ford festiva just dies while going down the road

i had many problems with what i thought was my starter/ignition and replaced my alternator and battery. tho they were helpful, ultimately the problem was a small fusible link that had needed to be replaced, as it was over heating and when it would it would stop whatever electrical signal was imperitive to the car actually running. if i was driving and the wire over heated, it would stop running right on the road. i just used some 12 AWG stranded wire and it stopped stalling.i discovered it by accident when i touched the wire and noticed it was excessively hot and worn down. it was located in the upper right hand corner under the hood, where there are 3 wires, brown and black.

My 1995 Mazda B2300 Truck, 2-dr. 4cyl. When driving up hills mostly, it engine sounds like it's dieseling, loses power, and the oil gauge goes crazy. Help?


Check your vacuum pump, that pump does all the switching of your sensor valves and ports. That would be my guess

Check the firing order of the plug wires . have a compression test done as you may have a blown head gasket between the two cylinders. Check distributor cap for cracks and internal condition that will allow shorting of the spark

Firing order for 1996 mazda b2300


FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: 2.3L and 2.5L Engines Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Distributorless Ignition System 90972g01.gif
Fig. 2: 2.6L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise 90972g02.gif
Fig. 3: 3.0L Engines (MPV) Firing order: 1-2-3-4-5-6 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise 90972g03.gif

My friend pulled all the plug wires off of my 1989 MX6 gt turbo and i cant figure out how they go can you help?


Nice friend. If you can figure out which terminal on the distributor is for #1 (cylinder at front of engine), this diagram from AutoZone.com should work for you. Look for a #1 mark on the distributor.
