The fuel pump is in the fuel tank, when was the last time the fuel filter was changed? Do that and then do a fuel pressure test. Pump could be geting weak, but does not show up until it gets warmed up, or fuel filter is dirty and restricting the flow and in conjuction with a weak fuel pump will cause it not to run.

    Well that all depends if you have done it before or not, just watch when you break the lines loose you don't get a bath in gas, unless you bleed off the pressure at the shrader valve under the hood, You will need 2 wrenches 1 to hold the filter and 1 to break the fitting loose, and a socket to take the bracket off that holds the filter. Its not that hard just akward.

1986 Lincoln Town car 5.0 intermittent stalling problem, usually while driving. fuel pump?..please advise! Thx!

It appears you may have a bad ignition coil that cuts out after it gets hot. Not uncommon.

Engine shuts off after driving 45 min when parking in reverse.But 15 min before this engine and slippery road icon comes on.2 hrs later car starts and drives normal then shuts off again 45 min later.

most commonly found problem relates to an electronic component heating up and shutting down. Have you checked to confirm there is fuel pressure when the vehicle shuts off. Is the check engine light on. Have you checked codes ? I suggest hooking up a fuel pressure gauge and letting vehicle run till it shuts off while monitoring the fuel pressure. If you loose fuel pressure, next step is to confirm there power going to the pump, if there is power going to the pump with no fuel pressure replace pump. Another suggestion would be to check for spark when vehicle stops running to eliminate an ignition problem. good luck

Car just completely dies while I'm driving..could be 5 min or 45 min into driving but car just shut down...starts back and drivives fine...please help

Could be the cam sensor, crank sensor, coil pack, fuel pump. Even if no warning light is lit, the computer is recording these shut downs and why. A good mechanic, with the proper scanner can pinpoint the culprit.

It keeps shuting down i have replaced fuel pump, plugs,coil, when driving it will just shut down if let it set for a few min it will start back up now it will not start...

You need to figure out which one you are losing. You are either losing fuel, or spark. When the engine quits, immediately open the hood, and check for spark. Let us know what you find. Good luck!

Drive for about 45 min It stalls i wait 20 min it starts back up

There's a possibility that your fuel pump is going out. What's happening is that you can drive for the 45 min. and the pump gets hot and shuts itself off. After it cools off, it starts working again.
