Customer Question
I have 2006 expedition...
I have 2006 expedition that cranks for days but will not start. I have checked and replaced fuses. I have also replaced the fuel pump driver module, the fuel filter, and the fuel pump. But with each new part I keep getting the same results. Also I checked and reset the fuel pump shutoff switch. What am I missing?

Have you been able to check for any trouble codes in the PCM (Engine Computer)?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I haven't checked any codes yet. I don't have an obd-II and I haven't been wanting to pay the bill to get it towed to the garage to do it (several hundred dollars). From what I have researched it could be the non-servicable relays, the pcm itself or any number of sensors. I just don't want to throw any more money at it unless I know it's going to fix it.
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

See if you can rent one a code reader or see if any auto parts store will loan it out. The codes point us to the problem. Guessing will get really expensive and gte everybody mad.

I hooked up my obd2 scanner and I didn't get any dtc's. So I pulled a fuel off of the rail and cycled the key to see if I was getting any fuel up to the engine and there wasn't any. So I'm thinking the problem might be in my inertia switch or the fuel pump relay. Or am I just way off?.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
