Customer Question
1995 ford f-150 6...

1995 ford f-150 6 cylinder truck cranks and runs good for about 5 minutes. During this time it will accelerate and run fine. Then it starts skipping on 1 cylinder, then 2 cylinders , then 3 cylinders and dies (within about a minute or less). Will crank back up immediately and idle great all day, but will not accelerate without going dead.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

Yes.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No; a mechanic is working on it. swapped computer, checked fuel pressure, idle control valve, fuel injectors are pulsating, replaced some kind of box on the fender well.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Can't think of anything right now.

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.
