Car won't keep fuel pressure

Asked by Apr 13, 2016 at 10:55 PM about the 1988 Ford Thunderbird Turbo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1988 for Thunderbird turbo coupe won't keep any
fuel pressure. I have to prime it, then it will run for
about ten minutes, then die. Then I have to wait a
couple hours then redo the process. Already
replaced the fuel pump, cleaned the fuel lines, and
replaced the fuel pressure regulator. Any
suggestions?

Locate the EEC IV test port connector under the hood (near the battery) it should have a cover on it remove the cover the top has 2 ports, run a jumper wire from the bottom right port there are 4 ports "A" is the fuel pump ground port connect a test light jumper from "A" port to the positive side of battery this will energize the fuel pump until its removed. Start the car and check to make its not a fuel pump circuit problem shutting down the pump.
