    1990 SC won't start.

    When I was having a similar problem last month and the car ran on starter fluid, the injectors were clogged. Removed, cleaned, and replaced the injectors and all is now good. If you have pressure at the schraeder valve on the fuel rail (30-40psi roughly) and it runs on starter fluid, it's...

    1990 SC won't start.

    I would focus purely on fuel delivery at first and forget about spark for now. Have you checked to make sure the ignition switch in the column is good? Those things are VERY prone to failure with age. I think I've replaced one on almost every bird I've owned all the way back to '81. Personally...

    1990 SC will start then immediately die

    Absolutely, but not with a meter because the pulses are so short. You need an LED test light, or you could probably jerry rig something with a noid light and some alligator clips. Look for the "dis no-start" troubleshooting steps used by Ford posted all over this sight. Do a search and you'll...

    1990 SC will start then immediately die

    So now it runs like crap all the time, hot or cold? Did you put a light on the crank sensor to watch it while running? Maybe it's intermittent also...can't think of anything else that would cause intermittent injector firing if it still starts. I think you said in your original post that it...

    OBD1 data logging/monitoring

    Does anyone know of a cost effective solution for monitoring the EEC-IV with a PC and software? I do this with my OBD2 vehicles but is there a way to adapt the OBD1 plug to OBD2 and software that either recognizes Ford obd1 data OR let's you remap signals to parameters of your choosing...

    1990 SC will start then immediately die

    I have not found a way to test a crank sensor off the car, but since I have just solved a slightly similar problem on my 92, I'll ask this... When you changed the DIS, did you use lots of fresh heatsink compound on the bottom? Those things get really hot really fast and when they do the engine...

    SOLVED: familiar song...SC sat for years, won't start, running out of ideas

    For anyone that cares or is fighting similar symptoms in the future.... The problem all along was the injectors (except for the cam sensor which was also bad but wasn't the reason for the car not running right). First, the original injectors were completely clogged from sitting with...

    SOLVED: familiar song...SC sat for years, won't start, running out of ideas

    Since no one is chiming in I figure everyone is just shaking their heads at my stupidity or no one is sure. I've decided I'm stupid for not raising the alarm when the tips of the new injectors were so different from the old. If for no other reason than to know I am getting the right spray...

    What does a broken balancer look like?

    Thanks Ralph. I wasn't in doubt, but I've never seen a bad one and I'm so frustrated I'm starting to doubt everything I've done. I'm just revisiting everything I've done/checked. Have a look at my injector post if you don't mind. Love to hear your thoughts on that...

    SOLVED: familiar song...SC sat for years, won't start, running out of ideas

    wrong injectors I'm starting to wonder about the injectors I installed. If you compare the original design with what I put in, they are quite different. Perhaps my blind trust in compatibility claims was misplaced. Shouldn't the car still at least idle though? Especially when it revs up...

    What does a broken balancer look like?

    As part of my troubleshooting, I took off the balancer to inspect it. The rubber looked pretty good...some small cracks, but absolutely no clear breaks, flex or movement. To me that seemed like a pass...but does anyone have a picture or description of a broken one? Sorry to start new threads...
