Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Ford Thunderbird 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 42000 miles
I have two problems actually. My car has always had a problem starting after its warmed up. I have replaced the starter twice and the new one just 1500 miles ago along with a new battery. Still has the same hard starting problem when warmed up. Sometimes I have to roll the car back and forth a few times then it will fire up. No idea why this happens. The other problem just occurred. The engine started sputtering and died. I got out to check it and found that the fuel line from the pump to the filter and engine ruptured. I fixed it temporarily with a spare hose I had and got it running again. I got about 10 miles down the road and the car died again as if it ran out of fuel. I still had half of a tank in it. I could not get it to start again. I was thinking maybe the filter or something got clogged. I plan on changing the filter anyway. Could I replace the stock filter with a good performance filter? Or does it have to be the stock one?
have the same problem?
