Hello all I am new to the forum but to get to the point.
I have a 91 Crown vic with a 351 windsor, 2 barrel carb.
The problem occurs when driving and I decide to accelerate or pressing pedal to maintain speed. The car will seem like it is going to stall and has no power, even if i press pedal more. The car will slow down and then it will be fine at the slower speed. Also does this if i floor it when driving about 45 mph. In the begining it would do this when fuel was at 1/4 and all I had to do was fill it up to fix it. But no it will do it at any gas level. One more thing if I hold the pedal down when the car is screwing up it will die eventually if I dont let up off pedal.
Sorry for the long description But does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this, or what it is.
Secondly, I've had a similar experience that may or may not help. More than likely, not.
Check the fuel filter... :2cents:
Good and inexpensive place to start is the fuel filter if that does nothing
to fix the prob get a fuel pressure test and you will most likely find a
bad fuel pump.
Happened to my brothers 91 crown
Hopefully it helps
Thanks for the advice.
I will replace fuel filter and report back then
Check the air filter, the problem is most likely in the fuel system.
They're cheap...why not.
I just put on a new air filter a month ago. But still have not changed fuel filter yet, its been raining all day
Well I finally changed the filter and it is still doing it. Whats the
possibilty of crap in the fuel tank moving around and blocking up line.
Get a fuel pressure gauge.
Just thought I would thank everyone for the advice.
My problem ended up being the fuel pump.
But my new problem is either my gas gauge or the thing in the tank that measure gas level.
My son had a similar problem with his '93 Crown Vic. He switched to a better grade of gas (Exxon or Amoco) and 93 octane. It helped his problem. Good luck.
how long do you sit there looking at old posts to get to some from over a year and a half ago? damn...
