Slow -starting Crown Victoria
I have a '95 Crown Victoria that is still running well except that it's very difficult to start when it's cold. (If it's been run recently, there's no problem.) When I got it, I was told I shouldn't use the gas pedal when starting it. That worked fine then, but now I generally have to crank the key and kick the gas several times before something "catches."
I did read somewhere that this could be a problem with the fuel pump. If that's what it is, can you clue me in on how expensive that would be to replace? (I'm very ignorant about cars, and wouldn't know a fuel pump if it up and bit me! So I'd have to have somebody else do the work.) Thanks for any advice you can give me.
