The data link connector is located on the Left rear of engine compartment, on a bracket.

This means if your standing in FRONT of the vehicle looking at the engine compartment, it would be on the RIGHT side back towards the firewall.

We have looked there and the vehicle has apparently been modified before we purchased it. We have looked all over the engine compartment and in the cab. We found the computer but no port

This has been our biggest issue with the truck. When it would get warm and turn off it wouldn't start. Then it Stalled out while driving. We got it running again, then it stalled and hasn't started since.
Ford Mechanic: AMEDEE, FORD TECHNICIAN replied 10 months ago

You are going to need to check for spark and fuel when cranking it over.

Unless you have done this already?

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.

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
