Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Sounds like you have a large vac leak somewhere, when you start it do you hear any vac noises going on?

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No noises at all
Lincoln Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

I would check all the vac hoses on that and if you dont find anything I would suspect fuel pressure and check that next

When we spray carb cleaner it runs ... is there a way to check fuel pressure ?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It starts every time and only runs for about one second on its own
Lincoln Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

yes get a fuel pressure gauge and check the pressure with key on engine off, you can rent them at the local auto parts store, you want to see 35-45 psi

Is there a Schrader valve?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No valve on this car
Lincoln Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

that one does have a Schrader valve on the fuel rail should be in the rear somewhere, trying to find a diagram of it

there is also a inertia switch in the left hand side of trunk, press that to make sure its not popped

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
There is absolutely no Schrader valve on the fuel rail. 100%. Three different guys looked at it
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
We checked the inertia switch and it is not popped
Lincoln Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

ok then you will have to use the quick connects for the test,

OK we are also going to check power at the fuel pump because the vehicle starts every time and runs for about two seconds and shuts off right away. It appears that the fuel pump is losing power and not staying running.

hows it coming

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Well we cannot find a fuel pressure adapter to check the fuel pressure and a couple guys cannot find the Schrader valve. Are you able to send me a picture location of the actual Schrader valve? We have proper power and ground signals at the fuel pump
Lincoln Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

there should be one on the back side of the fuel rail on passengers side if no valve is found you will have to use the inline fuel supply line, and I dont have any pictures for that

Ask Your Own Lincoln Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
We are having a hard time finding an in-line fuel supply line. Can you send us a model number or part number of a tool that we can use?

Customer satisfaction is my number one goal. Giving me nothing less than a 5 star rating would be appreciated very much. You can do this rating at the box on the upper right hand corner.
