Customer Question
2009 Ford F350 5.4...

2009 Ford F350 5.4 will not start. Slow turning over. New battery, starter, and new ignition switch. Key tumbler has not been changed.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Battery is new, just got it. Also replaced battery cables with Ford cable harness.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I started by replacing a dead battery. Still slow cranking, then replaced the starter. Still slow cranking. Did a voltage drop test. cables failed the test, so I replaced the cables. Still slow cranking. Replaced ignition switch. Still slow cranking, no start.

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

I think that's it.

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you. Was off on vacation for a week and a half. Today is my first day back. Thanks for your suggestion, I removed the serpentine belt and the engine turned freely. The AC compressor was frozen. Thanks again.

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
