1994 Ford Taurus SHO - 135,000? - V6 3.2 - Auto
About 10 days ago I had to really pump the gas to start it (not normal for this car). And the gas guage read empty until I started driving it and it very slowly went up to the correct fuel level.
Now it will not start by pumping the gas. One nice person was able to spray stuff directly under the hood and it started and idled. When I let off of the gas it died. I don't know if I had kept giving it gas if it would have finally kept going. We stopped.
A mechanic walked down and checked to see if it was the fuel pump. He said it was working. However the injectors were not getting gas.
Why? That is the question. What can I do or have checked to get my wonderful car going again?
The only thing known wrong is that the alternator bearings make a lot of noise and it needs to be rebuilt. Been getting worse for about 2 years. Just figured out where the noise was coming from.
The only code is 332 (Insufficient EGR flow).
I think it has had that one for years. So I don't think it is related to not starting. But I never know so I thought I would mention it.
Also, it had recently failed emmissions for the first time.
HC.508. Limit. 220
If you can figure this out you are better than most!
Thanks for trying!
