How do you remove calipers from a 1987 thunderbird? Like where do I start?
The fuel filter could cause a start and stall. Other causes could include the fuel pump, computer, various sensors, and ignition system.
A failing or bad coil can cause an engine to stall. After cooling for a while, it is often possible to restart the engine. A fuel delivery problem could also cause stalling. For instance, if the car usually only stalls when the engine is under a heavy load, the problem would probably just be a clogged fuel filter.
Could be time for a tune up.
thae catalitic converter is pluuged
This sounds like an idle problem. Does the service engine light come on before the engine stalls? If it does it should post a code. Knowing what that code is could lead to a more accurate assessment of the problem. Does the engine idle ok before you put the car in gear? Does the engine restart and idle ok after the stall? There are multiple possible causes for the stall. The IAC, idle air controller, could simply be dirty and not delivering enough air for the engine to run. If the MAF, mass air flow sensor, if faulty or dirty that might cause the engine to stall. If the Oxygen sensor is faulty that could cause a stall and generally poor running as well. It may be possible that if the TPS, throttle position sensor, is faulty that could cause the engine to stall at idle speed. If you have found out what the problem is I would be interested to know for future reference.
its in the gas tank!!!
It was a 1987 Ford Thunderbird
The brake light fuse on a 1987 Thunderbird is located on the back of the headlight switch. It is not in the fuse box.
It will be under the clutch, as it meets the firewall.

The single exhaust V8 for 1987 had about 150 hp. The 1988 with dual exhaust was 160 hp. V6 ?
I had a 1987 Chevy Celebrity that would start and then immediately die. It turned out to be bad fuel injectors. I replaced three fuel injectors and the problem has not returned.
87 thunderbird turbo coupe came stock with 190hp
Scrap value for a complete vehicle in CT goes for $300.
Check vacuum lines and intake gasket for leaks. Replace fuel filter and check fuel pressure. Give it a thorough tune-up and have an exhaust shop check the pressure before and after the catalytic convertor. There are several things that could cause it to stall...
10w30. The brand is a personnal choice. I use Pennzoil.
I have the owner's guide for a 1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe. The '87 and '88 were the same body style, so parts are interchangable. pg 190 of ur manual
