Asked by Dec 23, 2014 at 09:57 PM about the 1989 Ford Fiesta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

One I get going its runs okay but you can
still feel a hesitation in it wondering if
fuel pump is going bad

1 Answer


I would run a fuel pressure and flow test, replace the pump if low, if the pump passes the test then you may have a TPS in early failure, the only way to find this is getting a live data test performed, you can see the readings the sensors are sending to the ECM and replace those out of specs.
