I have a 2013 f150, 5.0 engine
. Yesterday the truck ran fine, my wife went to take the kids to daycare this morning and suddenly it will not start. The battery and starter
were just checked 2 weeks ago during replacement so these are ok. The truck turns over however it does not fire. the truck was last driven last night, everything seemed perfectly fine. It sat overnight outside in the driveway until a couple hours ago when my wife tried starting it. It did rain last night, but cant imagine that would do anything.
JA: Does the battery look like it's leaking? And does it have a strong smell -- like sulfur?
Customer: the battery is new, replaced two weeks ago. Its fully charged, I had her test it with our battery charger/ tester with me on the phone. no corrosion, leaking or smell of any kind. Everything checked out fine.
JA: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: its dead in our driveway at the moment. I would like to fix it myself to save costs of towing and repair bill. I have not tried anything else as of yet. Started looking online to see if I could find users with similar issues and ran across this site.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
