Check the crank sensor with a meter for an induction current then if a current change the ignition module ,but i think you might have disturbed something checking the fuel pressure

1991 chevy lumina wont start after sitting when you drive it


Just because you replaced the fuel pressure regulator does not mean it is working correctly; which is the most common cause of your problem. Hook up a fuel pressure guage and watch what happens when you are starting it cold - it should go up to about 47 PSI and once started it should read between 40-47 PSI, then when you turn the engine off: Does the pressure drop? There is a check valve built into the fuel pump also; that can be faulty and if the pressure is generally reading low and the check valve is bad- this can also create your problem. We have run into this before also; When the fuel pump is cold the internal pump seals are sealing great, but after a period of running time the pump seals lose sealing power and if you try to start it again it will be hard to start. The biggest thing with this situation is getting the fuel pressure readings at the following points of time:: Start-up, running cold, running at normal operating temp, engine off, engine re-start.

97 lincoln missfire when warm. Especially going uphill. Rund fine until engine warm about ten minutes from starting. Changed all coils.


Sounds like fuel pressure is too low-either a weak , old pump, or you need to change the fuel filter-most likely, the pump, though. Check the fuel pressure specification for your car, most mpfi systems require 40-50 lbs. of pressure.

You said you had a dead battery

It is sort of an unsafe practice to jump one of those
They can explode

A drive around the block won't do the job

Low PCM voltage will shut done the vehicle

Is the battery over 4 or 5 years old?
Is it no charged with a battery charger?
Was it load tested?
Does it have at least 12.6 volts if not, fully charged,
replace it

The fuel pressure has to be checked at the fuel rail on motor
with a gauge & needs to be around 38 to 40 lbs

The pump may not hold pressure & as a result be hard to start

Mustang stalls when trying to drive and will shut down


Measure fuel pressure on injector rail - should be 38 to 40 psi. If low or fluctuating, then replace regulator. Another possibility is the in-tank filter being clogged - rare I know, but trash in the gas tank and it's clogged.

Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.


check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump
