Engine Mechanical problem
1990 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 176000 miles
I have a 1990 Town car w/ 5.0L, auto transmission. The car runs, idles, and starts just fine 90% of the time. There are just random times when I am coming to a stop the car will die. The radio and dash instruments will stay on and the engine will just shut off like I ran out of gas. I put it in neutral, and the car starts up just fine. Sometimes it'll die the next few times I stop and sometimes nothing happens for the rest of the day. I thought it was the fuel filter and/or build up on the injectors so I replaced the filiter and put injector cleaner in the tank. It seems to have helped it die less frequent but it still does it randomly. That could just be coincidence though. I thought about replacing the fuel pump but before I go through that, does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be?
have the same problem?
