Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Ford Cougar V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
Had to replace the temp sensor switch for the electrical fan to work to cure overheating issue.
During this process, upon trying to restart car, it wouldnt start.
Checked all standard possibilities, and went finally to giving it a little starting fluid. It fired up with the starting fluid, and ran fine, but upon turning it off, then trying to start it again, cranks, acts like it tries to start, but just dont start.
All vac lines checked, as well as fuel lines, no leaks.
Pulled the fuel check/valve, relieved pressure in system, etc trying to remedy possible vapor lock.
Same result, fires up with a little starting fluid, but not on its own, fuel pressure is good at the lines next to carb.
It is the 4.6, with the throttle body. We have also ran a double check on all fuses, replced a couple of the worn looking vac lines in the engine compartment.
Thank you for your help.
