Question about 1989 Ford Crown Victoria
Check the ignition module (usually mounted on the firewall or on top of wheel well, looks like an aluminum heat sink). Fords are notorious for this problem.

I had the same issues for most of last summer. Finally, I replaced the Plug Wires and the car has been working like a charm since. The other problem I found was that I had the wrong plugs. It seems there are only two types for the Focus, the local parts guys quoted me the incorrect part number and my fuel efficiency went to ****.

Suggestion, don;t try and start the car with the gas pedal pushed to the floor. Asking for trouble in the future.
Could be a fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.
Check engine light on? If so, Have the code read/scanned at your mechanic, or your local auto parts superstore.

First is I'm sorry to hear that. Second is I think i know what it is. The Air conditioning compressor is locking up thus killing the motor or putting a heavy drag on the motor. I would say to have a/c compressor replaced because its malfunctioning. but i have a few ideas. There is a high limit sensor located in directly after the a/c compressor this tells when to shut the compressor off if its faulty it will create to much pressure and lock up the a/c has 2 aluminum lines going to it, the bigger line has a smaller sensor mounted outside right where you can see it and get to it, its a 2 wire plug, all we want to do is check to see its connected and secure. Do not true and take it out of the line there is pressure on it.. This is all you really can do until you service it. Lastly if i were you i would disconnect the a/c compressor from coming on, you can do this by opening the hood and going right to the a/c compressor and unplugging a 2 wire plug that's located directly behind the clutch assembly or where the pulley is. just to be safe have the car off when doing this. Good luck hope this helps...p.s. If you have had your a/c serviced recently bring it back there because they could have overfilled it causing too muck pressure causing this same issue.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much. This was extremely helpful!"
yes the egr could be clogged or loosing vaccum check the valve by taking it out or looking to see if the pickup tube on the valve is bad or has a pin hole in it.
