Mustang Quits!

I have a 92 GT, starts fine and runs fine for about 5 to 8 minutes. Then it
just quits, If it does refire you have to pump the gas to keep it running. I
know its in the fuel system somewhere,but were?
Thanks Dean.

Dean,

My guess is it's a bad fuel pump.

Re: Mustang Quits!


Start with replacing the fuel filter. If that does not help, then get a
fuel pressure gauge and test fuel pressure at the schraeder valve on the
fuel rail on the engine. if memory serves me right, its on the left hand
side (you standing at front bumper looking at engine) front corner of
the engine. 'schraeder' is the type of valve on your tire's valve stems.
I think about 30 PSI is correct here, but double check in your haynes or
chiltons manual.

If you don't have the requisite pressure at the schraeder valve AND
you've replaced the fuel filter, my guess is that your fuel pump is
shot. You might also have a pinched fuel line (put a floor jack in the
wrong place lately?). Your car is 13 years old, so its entirely possible
that the pump is worn out. The pump is in the tank, so you have to drop
the tank to replace it. Make sure you replace the fuel filter (again)
after you change pumps - theres alot of crap that can get in the lines
when you disconnect everything.

Re: Mustang Quits!

Hell I'm on my third pump now (88GT) and it's making noises like its fixing
to fail yet again. If you're still on your first pump I'd replace it just
on GP.

Re: Mustang Quits!

And don't forget to change the fuel filter while you're back there. And
hopefully you have a close to empty tank as well.

Re: Mustang Quits!

Sam's club actually, it's not the gas it's the design, an in-tank fuel pump
needs to be kept totally immersed in order to keep itself cool and properly
lubricated. On a Mustang the silly thing starts to become exposed at a
little less than 1/2 a tank. Popular Science magazine recommends never
letting your tank go under 1/4 in order to extend the pump's life. Advice
I'm obviously not following.

Actually, When I moved, I changed from buying at the same Exxon
that I had use since I was 14 and started buying at Albertsons. It was
in about June. That year when it got cold my Mustang for the first time
since 1989 started being cold natured in the morning. I switched
again... But I remember reading that about in tank pumps and thinking
yinkes. Then when I replaced my original pump I took it completely apart
to see how it work. The realization was sobering. I wondered who was the
first guy that dropped a running 12V electrical motor into a bucket of
gasoline to see what happened. LOL
