I gotta '94 Tbird LX V8 with 57k miles. Generally in good
Remember the Ford Explorer/Firestone tire recall?
I'm drivin' down the hiway with my original eqpt.
Firestones and the tread peels off the left rear
tire. Makes a horrible flap as the peeled tread gets
caught on a wheel component.
I pull over in a dangerous spot and the engine dies.
Acts just like it's out of gas (it isn't) when I try
to start it. I checked everything: no apparent problem.
I had to tow it to the dealer.
I figger the tread damaged the wire to the fuel pump
or maybe the pump itself which is located in front
of the fuel tank.
Has anybody worked on the fuel pump? Do I stand a chance
of crawling under the car and, say, repairing a broken
wire or connector? Any other ideas?
Or do I gotta give it to the Dreaded Dealer? :-(
