What you said worked - I think it is the fuel pump regulator



A few days ago I posted my car, 95 Ford Thunderbird, cranked forever before starting and then only after I hit the gas pedal. Someone suggested to hold gas pedal down when starting and cranking and it started twice like that real easy. So, as I said I only want to keep the car a few more months, how much should that cost to repair. Also, since I will be using the car this weekend, is it dangerous to start that way, it smells a little like gas for awhile after starting? And, yes, smoke can out of the tailpipe when I started it by cranking forever. I am so excited it worked. Thanks.
