Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
From my understanding it's sat for the past two months. I don't know much about it except that it usually sits for about a week or two between uses. It's an elderly lady that owns it. She can't afford a towing or shop/technician fees so she asked if I could help. I just don't know much about the vehicle so the usual no start fixes haven't worked for me. As for mileage I'm unsure... my guess is somewhere around 156k. She's owned it since 90' and claims to not drive it much.
When I turn the key I do hear the fuel pump humming and the click at the relay. Since I tested the spark at the coil and plugs and got spark(which was weak, hence the new plugs) So I thought I'd try to shoot starter fluid in the intake and it ran for about a min but I had jumped the circuit at the inertia switch while doing this which lead me to believe it was the switch. I haven't tested for fuel pressure at the rail yet cause I don't have a gauge.
Okay so I added two gallons of gas. I also pressed the valve on the fuel rail, it sprayed at first, then dripped out. I did this while the key was on.
