Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I am John Mc, a Ford dealer tech. I hope I can help you quickly and accurately. One moment while I work on your problem.
Does it even spin over?
it does for a second then cuts immediately off
Did you take ANYTHING loose up top when you changed the fluid?
Battery, air filter housing, anything?
Ok when you turn the key to on does the red theft light in the dash blink rapidly?
wait i changed the air filter before i changed the transmission fluid
Ok, did you make sure you connected the mass airflow sensor back up to the air filter housing. This can cause it not to run.
Ok, try this real quick. Disconnect the maf sensor and see if it will start. If so you may have gotten it dirty or damaged it.
ok hold on
Ok, have you checked your fuel pump shutoff switch to see if it tripped? Some times this can happen when you lower off of jacks.
yes i checked it
It is back in the LR quarter panel area. You have to remove that panel in the cargo area.
i checked it when it didn't crank the first time
I really don't know what else to say. Your next step need to be getting it scanned to see if there are any hard fault codes. If ok next you use the scan tool to check fuel pressure. If pressure is low you could have a bad pump... Just thought of something. How low is the fuel. If it was low and you jacked up the front of the truck enough fuel could have gone to the back of the tank that it is not getting in the pump. May want to try adding a few gallons. If it has more then 1/4 tank I wouldn't think this is the problem but something to check.
I will try that my gas was on a quarter of a tank
If this doesn't help next step is getting is scanned.
