AFTER TIMING 1991 FORD THUNDERBIRD ENGINE WILL RUN BUT DIES AFTER FEW MINUTES


First take the mass air flow sensor off and clean the small thin wires inside using a non-chlronated brake cleaner then let it dry for 10 minutes then re-install it and see if the problem still exist.If the problem still exist then check the fuel pressure while its running. It should be 30-40 psi if its the 3.8 engine non-superchared and 30-45 for the 5.0 engine.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump.
