Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, Do you happen to have a fuel pressure gauge by chance? or can you hear the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds when you just turn the key ON, should hear a slight buzz then it quits, that is the fuel pump running, but the best way to check is with a fuel pressure gauge. If you don't have one, you can borrow one from a local auto parts store. let us know. Thank you.
There is a fuel filter on the fuel rail, but I doubt it is clogged up, My suggestion is let's try to get it running first, before dealing with any maintenance type items. If you have some starting fluid, and someone to get in the truck, spray some directly into the air intake, and see if you can make the truck run for a couple of seconds by introducing a fuel source. if it runs then briefly, but can't run on it's on, then we know we have spark to the spark plugs but lacking fuel. That can narrow it down for us.
Alright , just lightly spray a few times in the air intake pipe. if it hits or runs at all for a second or two. that's all we want to confirm is that it has spark and fuel is likely the issue at that point.
Hello, any luck getting the truck started again? Was it the fuel pressure/pump by chance? Thanks.
