Having problems with your 1993 Mercury Capri ?
1993 Mecury Capri Timing Belt? Fuel Injectors?
\015 1993 Mercury Capri with about 199,000+miles, 4-cylinder, Dual Over-Head Cam, Non-Turbo. Runs good for a few minutes then dies out. I have to put the car in neutral rev it up then put back into drive and the car die's out, run's about 20mph maximum, with rpm's fluctuating between 1000-2000 RPM. Is it a timing Belt? Fuel Injectors? It is hit and miss if this car will even start now.\015
If it runs better at times, then it sounds like a sensor. The ECT could be bad, it can cause idling and power issues.If the check engine light is flashing, then that can also be researched...blueamber...I've owned 6 of these capris so far
If the car was running great and then all of a sudden it started this problem and you did not change the timing belt. Then I would say its not your timing belt. Once a timing belt is on its stays timed until it breaks, unless it looses a tooth on the belt and at that point it would run really ruff all the time or not at all. If it cranks well and idles with a small skip but when you add gas it get worse. I would look at your fuel injectors and spark plugs and wires. start simple and work towards the big stuff. most of the time its simple like plugs and wires or gummed up injectors. Run some good injector cleaner as well. Hope this helps
