Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi I can help you today. What is the fuel pressure like? When you turn the key to the on position, does the check engine light prove out, does it come on then go back off like it is supposed to?
That vehicle should have 40-50 psi (fuel Pressure), normally, I'd like to know exactly what the fuel pressure is because it is critical on how I am going to help you, but if you don't know exactly the fuel pressure, then we will shoot in the dark a little bit. Let me know if you have the exact fuel pressure reading, thanks. If it is trying to start, we can also check out the spark plugs and see if they are fouled out. I am sure you already checked that. I also have more ideas.
Have you had a chance to check for a plugged exhaust system?
Possibles: the catalytic converter plugged. If it is plugged, it won't allow the engine to start. I am headed to the Ford Diag. website to check out more symptoms-causes, what size engine do you have? 6.8 L? V-10?
okay I am on it. Give me 5 mins
I am running through the diagnostics and I hit a wall when I need to know the exact fuel pressure, so I guess I will opt now for now or we can do the over the phone thing and I can ask you all the questions the FOrd Website is asking me, much easier.
