ok,

most likely the fuel pump has failed. it is not putting out proper pressure.

the damage comes from running out of fuel. gas the oil for the fuel pump engine. if it runs dry, it damages the pump.

you will need to replace the pump.

are there any repair shops around?? dealers are the last choice. any shop can perform this repair and they will be cheaper than a dealer.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

Ronnie. I picked up a nice 89 Town Car that has been setting
I picked up a nice 89 Town Car that has been setting for about 10 years. I immediatly replace the fuel tank and fuel pump. I also replaced the fuel filter on the frame. It stumbled when I first tried to start it and it almost stayed running. Now I have no fuel to the rails at all.I replaced the fuel pump relay AND the EEC relay under the hood. When I turn on the key I can hear the fuel pump work for about 2 seconds then it stops. I have a fuel pressure gauge hooked up to the shrader valve on the fuel rail and it shows no presure at all. I manually pilled a plug and I am getting spark. I jumped the inertia switch and same thing so I guess it is good. What am I missing here??? Thanks for the help. … read more
