90 Crown Victoria how to remove TFI module , help !

hey guys , im looking for some help on removing the tfi module on my distributor and replacing it since i think its on the way out , i know theirs two screws in it but one seems impossible to get at unless the thermostat housing is removed.

My 90 Cv has been hesatating only when its under load , usally on the highway its the worst around 60mph + . the car has a new fuel filter , wires , plugs , cap & button , there are no obvious vacuum leaks , pcv valve is new. so my guess would be of the following : fuel pump , tfi module or the trans it self but the trans is not even that old ! has me stumped ... what do you guys think ?

Re: how to remove TFI module , help !

Have you checked the timing, fuel pressure & volume? Could also be the MAF. You can clean the MAF with MAF cleaner to see how it does.

Re: 90 Crown Victoria how to remove TFI module , help !

had this issue in past... the car would lose power... even flooring it going up hill it would still slow down and backfire some... i ended up changing fuel pump and it solved the issue... you asking about the TFI module could be problem too...

you should use a permanent marker and mark where the rotor is under the distributor cap... then remove the distributor by loosening and removing the 1/2 inch bolt... remove the distributor that way to make the TFI change easier... if you have a timing light, you NEED to remove the spout connector... it is like a jumper... it is a plug looking thing on the wiring to the distributor... you need to remove that when adjusting the timing and adjust to about 12* which seems to run a lil better than the called for 10*
