Customer Question
88 f150 4.9 166k...

88 f150 4.9 166k, just bought it drove 1000 miles and it died at highway speeds.cranks but no start. Can hear fuel pump initiate. Had no spark, replaced coil and icm, now sounds like it wants to start but does not.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

Just bought it, twin tanks only the rear tank works, not sure how old cuz I'm a new owner. Are the fuel pumps a common fail?

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

Read codes koeo throws 32 and 67, replaced icm and coil.

Hi My name is Jay

Have you checked fuel pressure? The tank pump is a low pressure pump and on frame under drivers door is the big high pressure pump. You need to see if you hear the high and low pressure cycle on when turning key on and off?

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
