Why won"t my 92 Mustang stay running after shutting off and starting several times in a row
I will drive the car for about 30 - 45 minutes, shutting it off and starting. Sometimes after this I will try to start the car and it won't stay running. It starts, runs for about 30 seconds then dies. Hitting the gas when it starts to die out does not help. The car is not overheating when this happens.Sometimes it takes an hour or longer before this problem disappears and the car will start and I can drive again. When I try to start it I can hear the fuel pump humming before I start it. One time today it sounded like it was going a little slow. But I came back after 2 hours and the car started and I drove home. This does not happen everyday, but it is happening more often. It has never died on me while driving or at an idle only after shutting it off.
Replace your TFI, it's the candy bar plastic module on the side of the distributor. They get heat soaked and cause starting problems till the car cools down.
