START IDLE, RUNS THEN DIES


Hey guys/gals..


i have a problem that is *(&(%) me up the car is a a 1986 mustang 50 fi [speed density]

here's what happens, hard start-if left to idle for about a min it dies boom! shuts right down and if you try to give it ANY throttle it's like you hit a kill switch ,....but sometimes if you just floor the car it will run at about 3000 rpm but lumpy sounding as if a cam were in it [but it's stock] if you release the throttle it smooths out for a second and will go to 3500 rpm [sort of acts like a backwards gas peddle revs from floored to idle as opposed the the normal way....but then it dies after a few seconds while idling, will run forever but crappy as described but ONLY IF IT'S FLOORED!



codes I have are low voltage to fue pump relay...maf sensor [replaced it] map sensor [replaced it but still have the code after clearing it] tp sensor out of adjustment code [but got that code when I adjusted it]


my guess at this point is a fuel pump but wanted opinions on this



any ideas/?

Im confused, you stated Speed density and then said you replaced the MAF???

Anyhow if it is speed density replace the black box that has a vac hose and a wire connector hooked to it. I for get what its called but I wanta say the Bap sensor. Which is sorta a MAF sensor on the speed density cars.

I know I was only able to see a pic of one speed density car and there was no maf meter/sensor but there is on this one [california?] or canadian? .


I'll clean and test the injectors for some reason I never thought of those as the problem but it makes sense.

MORE INFO: the car is from CA and it did come stock w/ a maf! freaky huh? and i am thinking more and more like it might be a bad pcm gotta do more testing but christ every sensor and even the dist. was replaced [before i got it]

QUESTION can i swap in a 9al ? it has a maf but is it still a speed density set up? or not?
