Just got my 02 GT manual today. Had it checked by a mechanic and everything was in great shape. Only 75,000 miles. The car will turn over and sometimes start but when it starts you need to keep giving it gas or the RPMs will get way low and the car will turn off. Pretty sure fuel isnt making it to the engine. Put on a new fuel filter but that didnt do anything. I think it's probably the fuel pump but I have no idea. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Yeesh! You just got this car today? The rotten luck. Oh well, ***** happens. If the mechanic that you had inspect the car is trustworthy, take it back to him. He'll surely give you a great deal on the repairs considering the circumstances. But, as stated above, at least get the car properly diagnosed before replacing unnecessary parts.
I had a 02 GT and at 76k miles my fuel pump went out. Tap on the bottom of the fuel tank where the fuel pump is at. If it starts then start to die again, have somebody tap on the tank. If it starts to run again and then dies. It your fuel pump. Easiest test to do.
