My tbird has a 3.8 v6 engine and is not turbo charged and is fuel injected. Still haven't found the problem for its getting to much fuel.

WHAT ARE THE SPECS FOR FUEL PRESSURE, HOW MANY P.S.I SHOULD I HAVE IN FUEL LINE? 89 NISSAN P/U 2.4L


Generally speaking, modern gas fuel injected systems average 30-40+ psi. Older carburator engines only required 3-7 psi. High pressure in the injector helps atomize the fuel for better air-fuel mix. Check maufacturers specs and use proper tools to measure fuel pressure. Eye protection recommended.

Why won't my ford thunderbird start?


Craig,

I'll have to wait until my wife comes home with the tbird. Do you know if the fuel filter is clean? Let me think about it and look at the wife's car and I'll get back to you.

My 2001 buick lesabre is pulling a random misfire code and spits and sputters and smells like the car is floading


find the fuel pressure regulator. you should see it mounted on the return line of the fuel rail under the plastic engine cover. it will have a small vacuum hose attached to it. Remove the hose and see if gas comes out of the regulator. If it does replace it immediately.

I have a 1991 ford f150 6cyl. when I give it a light gas its runs ok, but if I give it a hard gas it seem to bogg down and shake, sputter. why is it doing this? I did change the fuel filter and still...


Ahhh. you have one of the first verisions of fuel injection... check all your vacuum lines, had a 89 ford f-150 I-6 with a similar problem years back. did everything from change vieciel speed sensor to the oxygen sensor... it was a tiny leak in vacuum line... Good luck!!

Gas is not getting from gas tank to Carburator .. 1987/88 Wrangler 42. engine was recently rebuilt .. gas tank sending unit was removed and repaired .. fuel line was blown out with air compressor. fuel...


Make sure you have the lines attached correctly on the sending unit and make sure there no small holes in the line. The pump pulls fuel and will draw in air. To make sure the pump is good, attach the tank side to a container of fuel and see if the engine starts. (keep the container below the pump or it can start a siphon and appear to be OK when it's not)
If the repair to the sender involved soldering up a line leak, make sure the line is not still leaking and that the line has not filled with solder.
It's a really simple system...there are no "trick" items there. If everything is intact and the pump is good, it has to work!!!

89 ford f150 in-line 6 cylinder. i have replaced a few injectors both fuel pumps and filter. idles like a dream. when i hit the gas it studders but doesn't die. need more info ask. any ideas?


This is for a 1989 Ford F150 In-Line 6-Cylinder (4.9L) wrongly posted by the Asker under a 1986 Ford Mustang....

Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator. Look it up on line at any of the reputable auto parts websites to get an idea what it looks like.
There should be a Rubber Vacuum Line coming from this (the Regulator is located on the Fuel Line prior to the Fuel Injectors) to the Intake. Take this Line OFF. If there is gas in that line = The Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator diaphram is broken and the Fuel is being dumped into the Intake and NOT being advanced onto the Fuel Injectors; and the Regulator must be replaced.
Let me know if this helped.

89 f350 stops feeding gas on hot days


Sounds like vapor lock. A trick for this is get a few WOOD clothes pins. Attach clothes pins to the metal lines under the truck in various locations. The wooden clothes pins are now acting as a heat sink. They help draw the heat away from the fuel system. Pick up another fuel cap, preferably a vented cap to help release the extra pressure caused by the heat.
