Sounds like a fuel pump problem. Check for power at the fuel pump inertia switch with it plugged in on the DARK GREEN/YELLOW striped wire and the PINK/BLACK striped wire while cranking the engine. If you do it with the key on, you will only get power there for 3 to 5 seconds. If you have power, then the fuel pump is the problem. But if not, then we need to look back at the relay, fuse and wiring.

How hard is it to replace the fuel pump? I don't have a lift. Drop the tank or remove the bed of the truck? How much would a mechanic charge?
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

If you have a couple of friends to help you lift the bed off, it would be easier. Other wise you will have to lower the tank. A mechanic will charge 2.0 flat rate hours to replace the pump.

Ok cool. This will take me a while (few weeks) to go through. Do we keep this open?

You can reply back on this page. Not sure if it will stay open for a few weeks thogh.

What Customers are Saying:

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.
