THE OTHER DAY THE GAS PEDDLE STOPPED WORKING ON MY CAR. I PULED IN TO A PARKING LOT, WENT TO SPEED UP AND NOTHING. I STOPPED, TURNED THE CAR OFF. THEN

1990 Mercury Sable • 190,000 miles

It wouldn't start up. Pushed it to auto-zone. A few hours later my dad came to look at it and it started right away and drove fine. It might be vapor-lock, but I have a flue-injector. When I unscrew the gas cap, when the engine is up to temp, there is a hissing noise. Also what my dad calls the "clutch fan" wont come on. 1990 Mercury sable 3.0L.

Clutch fan is on different vehicle. You have a cooling fan.

The hissing is from your evap system, possible stuck closed vent valve.

I would have the fuel pressure checked. It sounds like fuel delivery.
