    Looking to purchase 1992 Thunderbird SC Automatic - any advice?

    Looking to purchase 1992 Thunderbird SC Automatic - any advice?

    Maybe thats all it is then, the coolant temp isn't signaling the fan to come on. The 1st time you drove it A/C was on, so fan ran & coolant temp stayed normal. 2nd time, no A/C so no fan. See what opinion others on this site have though.

    Looking to purchase 1992 Thunderbird SC Automatic - any advice?

    Yes, the rad fan. Just thought maybe it wasn't coming on & you were stop & go driving or idling a lot- so little air flow through rad. The fan will also run any time A/C was on. May be the 2nd time you drove it you didn't have the A/C on? So fan wasn't on & that why it ran hotter? It should...

    Did you hear electric fan come on? Does A/C work-fan runs while its on also. oil condition isn't always a good indicator of a blown gasket. Check for bubbles over flow or rad(dont take cap off unless cold.)

    If you find 1 near you, wait until they look at or give you further advise on the cooling system before buying the car. Good luck.

    Looking to purchase 1992 Thunderbird SC Automatic - any advice?

    If there are no brake warning light(s) on it is likely the power brake electric pump/motor you feel running through the pedal. The accumulator may be getting weak & will need replacement, but thats cheaper then some of the other components of the master cylinder/abs/power brake unit & still...

    diagnosis and testing EI ignition system from Control/ Emissions Manual

    The way you have things configured now, (belt off & piping missing) no air is even being drawn through or measured by the mass air flow sesnsor. On top of that you've bypassed wiring so the computer doesn't even know it should be in start mode & you've jumped other wires also? I'm surprised it...

    diagnosis and testing EI ignition system from Control/ Emissions Manual

    In your June 6th post,( no crank) you stated you had the EVTM & the service manual. You should be tell from looking in them which wires are energized when in crank mode & that the ECM does need a crank signal as well, which you have eliminated.May be part of your current issue?

    diagnosis and testing EI ignition system from Control/ Emissions Manual

    Couple questions: when you say newly replaced motor, do mean you replaced with a used engine or you removed/rebuilt/replaced yours? If you rebuilt yours, how did you set cam sensor timing? If used engine did you just use sensors/harness's that came with it? Did you follow the diagnostic...
