    Good deal, Are you working on a supercoupe ?

  • spookygunner Oct 14, 2010

    NO JUST A STANDARD 3.8. DO YOU KNOW IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO JUMP THE LEADS TO GET THE CODES OR DO I NEED A SCANNER

    You can jump the leads, the scanner for the old codes is not as available as they once were.

1991 Ford Thunderbird leaving black stain on ground when I start my engine


Stain from the exhaust pipe, or liquid leaking? Exhaust pipe powdery stain from carbon buildup in engine. Either runs rough, needs plugs, or hasn't been driven fast enough to heat the engine. Insufficient information, check engine light on? Runs good? Other than stain, what else going on.

My 1997 ford thunderbird lx check engine light flashed on and off then it stayed on


If a problem happens 3 times in a row the engine light will come on. Then the code must be read in order to find out what needs to be fixed. Auto Zone will read the code for you at no charge, if you don't have a reader.

Maybe something wrong with inertia switch? Part of diagram so you can see inertia switch wire colors. How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Also, use a gage check proper fuel pressure, my info says 35--45 psi. I've seen fuel pumps that would run, but wouldn't make proper fuel pressure. I'm not saying the fuel pump has a problem, at the moment, I don't know?

Check engine light


The light indicates a problem with the thunderbird. You can bring it to most parts stores where they will plug a scan tool into a port under the dash of your car, and the scan tool will read any codes stored on the cars computer. This is a FREE service at most stores, check w/ stores in your area. They can tell u what the codes are, and what should be done to correct the problem. Good luck
