1990 Ford Crown Victoria Problems

Problem With Idle Air Bypass Valve May Cause Engine Performance Problems

If you experience difficulty starting the engine when cold, stalling at idle, or hesitations during acceleration, it may be the idle air bypass valve. This valve helps the vehicle idle steady when the accelerator pedal is not pressed.

Throttle Position Sensors May Fail and Cause Engine Performance Problems

The throttle position sensor (TPS) may fail. Common symptoms of a defective TPS can be rough idle, hard starting, hesitation on acceleration, poor fuel economy, and stalling.

EVP Sensor Failure May Cause Drivability/Fuel Economy Issues

The EGR valve position (EVP) sensor can fail on this vehicle. The EVP sensor measures the EGR valve position and transmits the date to the engine control computer. If it fails, drivability and fuel economy can suffer, the Check Engine Light will commonly illuminate.
