starts but stops immediately.
JA: Will the headlights
turn on? Is the battery fully charged?
Customer: Yes to both. I worked on engine intake manifold for vacuum leaks and replaced fuel filter and pump. I suspect the vacuum hoses, and there is one hose outlet under the IAC valve which is plugged because I don't know where it goes to.
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 2001 e 250. 5.4EFI engine.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. No money for a mechanic. I checked for proper function of the pump and eliminated the worst installation of an anti theft device under the steering wheel.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: That is everything I can think of. It will run on starting fluid, so I know I have combustion.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
