Re: Full Throttle and the cars just boggs down...

i dont know if it is hard to change or not, i have actually never had that happen to my crown vic. but my chrysler new yorker is having the same problem right now and i have had it happen to my oldsmobile. i have been avoiding the new yorker because it is in the fuel tank and i have to drop it to get to it. im new to the crown victoria so im not sure where it is. either way i would have a mechanic look at it because it may or may not be the fuel pump. but it definately sounds like you are loosing fuel pressure.

Re: Full Throttle and the cars just boggs down...

The fuel pump is located in the tank on those cars.
If you're not accustomed to diagnosing problems, I'd say let the professionals handle that one- it's likely going to be a fairly in-depth diagnosis. In the least, they can tell you what you broke ( ) and you can swap the parts yourself.

Re: Full Throttle and the cars just boggs down...

my car does this under full throttle around corners with not alot of gas in the tank. i believe the gas sloshes to one side and the pump starves... never happens in a straight line only when burning ass around a corner or pulling out on the highway really fast with like 2 gallons of gas in the tank. same thing or is my situation different?
