I took my 1991 5.0 LX for a ride tonight she ran awesome lots of power smooth like butter shifting. It's when I got home I pulled into the garage to park her and I had to back up so I popped the clutch and i stalled it. Was just trying to line it up so I can get 2 Cars in the garage. I went to start it and it cranks over but will not start. I don't know why ? Help needed please....

Our cars have two things that you really need to make sure they are good. The module/grey thing on the distributor and the PIP inside the distributor. Both these cause a crank no start. Almost all of us have had to deal with both of these over the life of our cars. The module is an easy one. PIP is a little more involved.

You could go to Harbor Feaight and get a Noid light and hook it up to your injector wire and look for a pulse. That is part of the No Start Checklist a proven method for getting your car to start

I saw everything mentioned already that came to mind except for the TFI Module and the fuel pump itself.

The in-tank pump does have an internal pop-off so, I'd be prepared to look at fuel pressure if it happens again. This is not usually an intermittent thing although I have had an in-tank fuel pump in the past with intermittent problems (long story/chased it for a couple of weeks).


The aforementioned checklist will help you find the issue.
