Question about 1997 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

'97 crown vic cranks but stalls immediately

It cranks just fine but the second the starter disengages, the car quickly stalls. ive tried giving it time to warm up by giving it a bit of gas but even after 3 minutes of this, the second i take my foot off the gas, it stalls. it doesnt run rough. the smoothest idle ive ever felt even at 200 rpm. im thinkin maybe low fuel pressure but i dont have the right fitting to put my pressure gauge on. help would be greatly appreciated!

When you turn the key on does the check engine light come on? If not it may be burned out. It sounds like a MAP sensor or an O2 sensor is bad. I would suggest taking it to autozone as they do free diagnostic and seeing if a code comes up. If it is a sensor it should, if not it may be the idle sensor not reading right in the ECU. More than likely it is one of the sensors though.

Did i answer you before? Anyway, try cleaning the throttle body with a little carb spray on a cloth shop towel wraped on a screwdriver.With the engine off,remove the tube to the t-body,hold the throttle alittle, and spray a couple of squirts inside.Spray some to wet the towel, and pushing it in and out gently of the t-body.becareful not to bend the plate inside or leave any towel inside.look at it with a flashlight to see if it's clean. Hope this helps

My 1986 ford crown vic selinoid is clicking


Either the solenoid/starter is ad, or the battery is too weak to engage the starter. You can try a jump start to see if the battery is too low. A quick test is to turn on the dome light. If is goes out when you crank the starter, either the starter is drawing way too much current or the battery is too low to crank.

1999 crown vic wont start


Are you saying it won't crank, or won't start ?
If it does not crank, and you have replaced the battery and starter, the problem may be in the neutral safety switch.
