Question Asked: 93 Lincoln Town Car ran well last year now only cranks over
September 13, 2013, 05:16 AM
My woman has a nice well kept 93 Towncar previously owned by her grandmother. Last year it started and ran well and has 91,200 or so miles. Now, being a mechanic I warned her about letting it sit and not starting it every week or so and drive it up and down the block to keep everything from dry rotting and falling apart. A year passes and every time she went to her grandmas she never started the car and it sits in a sunny south Florida drive way wasting away because she's an idiot and lazy never listening to my advice. Of course I get to fix it because I need to sell it so she just caused me to do more work since there is a crank over at the engine, the battery is new and always unplugged at the Neg. term., and the starter is solid and kicks it over great. Ether starting spray tells me it will ignite and pushed the stem on the fuel rail to check pressure on Passenger side fuel return line and no pressure! Well, I think that its the fuel pump but may also be a fuse. Anyone have advice because I originally assumed it was bad gas until cranking it and checking pressure on the lines. Thanks!
