Question about 1984 Ford LTD
Will go to start but doesn't. If I spray starting fluid down it it will start for a moment but will die. But I was able to start it this way the other day and keep it running. When key is turned over the injectors shoot fuel and the car is getting spark.
Have you checked the fuel filter. Fuel pump will pressure up, but fuel filter could be clogged and not work without the pressure of the fuel pump.

We are having similar problems. My husband replaced the fuel pump, fuel regulator and now it cranks but dies when you give it a lot of gas. He thinks the fuel injectors are stopped up. I read where one guy replaced the computer and fixed it and another one replaced the EEC. Check the relay contact and clean and check all grounding wires.

When you turn the key on does the check engine light come on? If not it may be burned out. It sounds like a MAP sensor or an O2 sensor is bad. I would suggest taking it to autozone as they do free diagnostic and seeing if a code comes up. If it is a sensor it should, if not it may be the idle sensor not reading right in the ECU. More than likely it is one of the sensors though.

Check the fuel pump reset switch again, if it is popped back out then replace that little switch in the trunk, any ford one will do. it works off a magnet and a bearing to close the circuit for the fuel pump. easy fix.
