Hello, it died while driving or you shut it off and now it wont restart? It cranks but wont run? Does the red THEFT lamp blink fast when you turn the key to on or does it stay on steady and then go out?

Stays on steady then goes out
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 7 months ago

Ok so it cranks over normally just wont start? Do you hear the fuel pump kick on when you cycle the key to on? Will it try and run a few seconds if you spray carb cleaner into the intake?

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.
