1990 Ford Mustang GT Q&A
1990 Ford Mustang GT Question: Why will my 88- Mustang GT only run with starting fluid in the throttle body????
Car started to sputter, then finally just wouldn't run. Checked for fuel pump running it was but the pressure was only about 20psi. I replaced the fuel pump, strainer, and fuel filter. I also blew out the fuel lines and emptied the tank of old gas. I added 5gal fresh gas opened the fuel rail and ran pump until new gas came out. engine turns over with not atempt to start. Checked for Injector pulse with node light tested ok. checked for spark tested ok. If you spay starting fluid into the throttle body it starts right up and idles good until it uses the fluid then shuts off. - trying to make it
could be a defective fuel pump recheck your fuel pressure again - goodguy
How are you spraying fluid into throttle body? through mass air flow sensor , or is MAF disconnected? - ziptie12
