Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello I will help you with your question,
Does it have 2 year old gas in it?
Good, when you get it to idle but it dies when you crack the throttle you either have too much air (vacuum leak) or too little fuel.
Do you have a fuel pressure gauge you can check the pressure and a vacuum gauge you can check the vacuum with?
What model, year and engine size of Ford do you have?
at idle or cranking you want 35 - 40 psi and 18" of steady vacuum.
Let me know what you find
Any vacuum port connected directly to the manifold can be used to check vacuum.
