Question about 1992 Ford LTD
OK, I have a 1975 ford ltd with a 400m in it, that i use to drive to work everyday. When i try to accelerate it seems to cut out as if it cant breath. I put a new accelerator pump on it because i noticed a small leak around it, but it didn't do any good. I am starting to think it might not even be a carburettor problem. If anyone has any suggestions on what is wrong or how i could fix it, please let me know, THANK YOU IN ADVANCED!
Fuel filter or fuel pump problem or it could be the automatic choke is closed and choking motor make sure choke is plugged in on side of carb start car let it warm up with air breather off watch and see if choke opens up .also you can look down into carb when motoe running crack open throttle and see if it sprays gas into intake if it doesnt could be filter or pump. to check fuel pump remove fuel line from carb insert line into small can or bottle so fuel doesnt run ontop of motor and have someone just bump over starter and see if it pushes fuel out line with a descent amount of pressure check fuel filter.and if all that checks out try looking for vaccum line off to check get a can of either and squirt lightly around vaccum lines and listen for car to idle up if it does bad vaccum line. and also check distributer. but it sounds like it is getting to much gas so i would check choke first..... hope that helps .. and by the way you have a 351 modified 400 wich is 351 m 400.
