Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

So right now it will crank but not start. That means we need to check the basic things. Can you check the fuel pressure ith the key on, and while crnaking?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It does start but just wont stay running

Can you check the fuel pressure?

How long will it run once started?

Will it respond to throttle once started?

My husband can check fuel pressure it is with him at work checking today It only will run a few seconds after changing the fuel pump driver it ran after smoothing out a few minutes ran long enough to make him think good getting ready thinking he good drive home then it quit Not sure about throttle response after that

Just respond when ready.

The throttle does not respond but it really wont run long enough he didnt get fuel pressure test done He talk with mechanic at our Ford garage yesterday he said it sounds like a fuel relay So I guess he's trying more fuse Our manual says the R303 relay is dealer repair only. So I don't quite belieive that. Testing pressure today???????? This Nav has 103,000 mile good shape underneath but it is a recontructed title that had front passenger wheel area damage> Also last week the air suspension went down on it. Found the air drier on the compressor was leaking, the ears on that piece had been broke off and was leaking off all along and finally wouldn't hold pressure at all.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 8 months ago.

Fuel pressure can be checked regardless of the vehicles running ability. When you turn the key to the run position you get fuel pressure and while the key is in the start position that pressure remains up. Once it stalls the key is still in the run position so the pump is still getting power and commanded on. I can not conform the need to check into the fuel pump relay powers or grounds until we have checked the fuel pressure.
