My friend has an 86 Ford Thunderbird, and she says after driving for a while, it acts like it is bogging down, or struggling for gas. Fuel pump, or catalytic converter

Asked by Jul 20, 2015 at 07:14 PM about the 1986 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

how much does it cost to get any of the faults listed and how do we get to fix it?

3 Answers


Ask her if the check engine light is lit up on the dash.

Best Answer Mark helpful

Well she said the check engine does not lit up


Sounds like a vacuum leak, but her best bet is to get it into the garage for diagnosis. No easy fix without looking at the car and hearing it run, especially going through multiple emails, texts, online and a few people to boot.
