WHY WON'T MY STAY RUNNING

1993 Mercury Tracer • 160,000 miles

I have changed the plugs, cap and rotar and wires, along with a new fuel filter. Car runs for a while like for a couple miles and then it quits again. Acts like it runs out of fuel. Runs perfect and then all of a sudden runs rough and dies. Then later it will run again.

Check fuel pump pressure. Check for vacuum leaks

That's what we were wondering. HOw do we check fuel pressure without buying a new pump in case that's not it.

If you go to our homepage under the DIY page, there are directions and a video to help you do it.

Thanks

Glad to help. NOTE: If you don't have a schrader valve, you need to tie in at the fuel pump.
