This model car had problem with ECM getting flooded by your air box. The A/C drain getts clogged and water has no place to go but into your computer resulting in computer failure. Check your passenger side floor to see if its wet, by the feet. If it is, thatn water went inside your ECM (computer) and burned vital circuits like the MAF (air flow meter) imput, which is very important for proper operation of vehicle.

Hi,

It could either be a bad injector or a partially defective ECU. It would be required to check any/all injectors to determine if any of them is always engaged and fuel flooding is happening. Alternately, it may be the ECU giving false signals and erroneously triggering the injectors to spray fuel.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Remove your exhaust pipe and see if it changes for the better. If it does, your cat converter is plugged up not allowing the exhaust to escape from the engine. Check your MAF sensor. Just tap on the top of it while it's running, if the idle changes, the MAF is on it's way out.

A rich codes is hard to get. Something is restricting the airflow or you have something wrong with the fuel control. Check the air filter and if it is good. I would wonder if you have a leaking fuel injector. Do you know how to do a cylinder drop test? How well does it idle? Does it smell of raw fuel at idle? Is it hard to start after sitting?

1997 crown victoria is haveing a hard time starting/ stalls... rev up stalls... could it be coil packs? or fuel pump? once it is started and been running for the day it will usually start without problem.


its not likley to be coil packs or it would not start and run at all,, it could be fuel pump, or its letting the fuel run back to the tank when its been standing so when you try starting its running on whats in the carb untill the pump brings up more fuel all the way from the tank??? have a look at the fuel tank is the vent blocked???? try leaving the tank filler cap off? naughty yes! but if the vents blocked the car will run just fine after doing this,,, have a look at the fule pipes any holes in them witch would also let fuel run back to the tank and also let in air so the pump is pushing air as well as fuel and working twice as hard as it need to,,i cant think of any more right now,
hope this helps you out

Car is hard to start then i have to rev it up or it will stall


Replace plugs, wire, fuel filter, have fuel injectors cleaned, and replace the idle air control valve, should correct the problem. Purchase you a repair manual cost around $20-25. Good investment if you plan on keeping the car.

Car stalled while driving. Has plenty of fuel


When running does your exhaust have a sweet smell or a rotten egg odor?
If egg odor you probably need a catalytic converter or better gas.

The gas odor indicates a leak in the fuel system, probably the gas line. This would cause fuel delivery problems and stalling. It may also be the reason the check engine light comes on.

Have the fuel lines checked and replaced if need be

My experience in this makes me think that you have a rusted fuel line, at the top of the tank. This is a common problem. I remove the tanks and replace the fuel tank fuel line/bracket assembly quite a bit.
