Question about 1994 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

I have a 94 Mustang GT that will die as if someone turned off the ignition after only running for 5 min or so. The car runs great and starts good but after 5 min or so the car just shuts off... Does not sputter. Also i have noticed that the fuel pump is still making noise constantly after the car had died. Then if you cycle the ignition key many times the fule pump will then sound like it should and prime then stop and the car will start. But then dies after it has ran for a min or two. And then you can hear the fuel pump constantly runnning and does not prime unless you wait for 15 min or so... or cycle the ignition untill the pump primes then stops. Whats going on here! Yikes Please help Thanks guys

When you turn the key on it will only energize the fuel pump relay for two seconds , or until you crank the engine over . The PCM - engine computer controls the fuel pump relay . Watch this video
