My 93 ford taurus will stall with no warning. It will start back up
and run fine eithin minutes. I have found out that when in stalls it
is loosing spark and fuel at the same time. Is there some component
that in the electrical system that controls them both and would cause
me to stall and loose spark and fuel at the same time. thanks for you
When the TFI module dies it doesn't cause the injectors to quit firing
though. I'd be more inclined to think the PIP sensor, EEC relay or something
else common to both the fuel and ignition systems is the cause.
depends WHICH circuit in the TFI fails...yeah... it's often the coil driver,
but not always. and where does the PIP come from?
Could be the pickup in the dist, of course; but when they fail, it's usually
erratic all the time or total.. right?
The symptoms point to electronic fail... relay fail is usually on switching -
once on, tends to stay on.
That leaves the dist pickup, tfi, eca, ... or EVEN the ignition switch as
possible culprits... and on likelihood, I'd go to the yard and buy the
appropriate used distributor to start with.
Swap the components, not the dist unless you have a timing light handy and
know how to set it up.
did ford put the ECM ground connector right by the battery still in 93? I
recall the late 80s had it there....What morons, what where they thinking?
Lets put a connector (that if fails the car wont run) right next to the
battery so it can get corroded all the hell.....:) If I had a

that depends on how you look at it... that may be the primary power ground,
but the one that causes problems (erratic performance) in Fox bodies is right
next to the ecm in the passenger kick panel... along with the ECM relay, and
this area is prone to moisture from leakage in a-pillar area.
I had mine shut down with no spark or fuel
It was the wiring harness tha ran alongside the bottom of battery . the acid
ate threw wires.
Once I opened up the covering on wires you
could see the wires that have been afected
