Question about 1989 Mercury Topaz
Car will start with help of starting fluid . Its been sitting up and guy I bought it from says he had a new fuel pump put in . I put new plugs in . It will run with starting fluid but stalls as soon at you touch the throttle. I does not smoke and burns clean. I drained it and put new gas in it and it does the same thing. I took off upper intake to look at all injectors work while I had someone crank the car. I think it might be the throttle position sensor or the distributor . What do you think? I hate to order the wrong parts. I hope I will hear from someone who had the same symptoms.
Listen carefuly fir buzzing when you turn the key on. The fuel pump should run for 2 seconds. Then it should rin during crabking. if the car starts with starting fluid, it tells me the fuel pump is not running. Cause - bad pump, bad fuel pump relay (left side of Instrument panel), or tripped inertia switch in trunk.
