Q: LIncoln has a hard time starting on 1991 Lincoln Town Car

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My 91 lincoln has a hard time starting. When the engine does finally catch there is a loud whirring noise coming from the front of the engine compartment. Could this be a fuel pump problem?

Fuel pumps are in the fuel tank, so it would be unrelated to that noise you speak of. The noise sounds like the fan turning when the engine is first started.

You could still have a fuel pump issue - have the pump pressure checked and checked for bleed down.
