93 t-bird problem

i have a 93 t-bird which every once in a while when i turn the key the motor turns over but wont start.also the rpms don't move either. it has a 5.0 ho motor. i have replaced everything from ignition all the way to coil and no remedy any thoughts.i have found a few different people with same problem but different years and different motors.

Re: 93 t-bird problem

Is it getting spark when it doesn't start? How about fuel?

it gets fuel and the juice going to coil isn't there. if you wait a little bit it usually starts.

Re: 93 t-bird problem

They had some problems with the TFI and distributor pickup. I'd get a rebuilt distributor for it.
