1990 Ford Thunderbird SC QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I have had this car at 2 dealers, 3 shops and my step father (With 40 years Automotive experience) have all tried to find the problem but so far been unable to.
The engine is a brand new crate motor from Ford. It has about 25k on it. Everything else has been replaced from the supercharger to the plugs. Etc...
The car has always run perfectly.
The general consensus now is that as the car was in a minor fender bender some years ago where the right front fender had been damaged
and replaced that the wiring harness from the engine to the computer might be damaged?
When I say that everything else has been replaced, I mean everything!
The dealers have all had the vehicle in their possession for days on end, hooked up to their computers, and as of yet been unable to figure out the problem.
We are all at a loss. Any ideas?

this started Sunday, i made it home, but not without having to put the car in neutral at every light ,tap the gas to bring the idle down, but when it got down to what is the new normal 2-3k idle there is a nasty humming vibration like noise, but not as your driving as mentioned...Then, in park when I start the car it reves way above the normal idle RPMs, then fluctuates. this is the same with the electronic connections connected and disconnected from the IAC device on the TB all the while i hear a loud humming noise from the engine.
i have an IAC part on the way, but are there any other ideas, i have heard that is the issue...but am looking for a second opinion...
