Customer Question
I have a 1995...

I have a 1995 F150 4.9 liter that I have a problem with. On several occasions after setting for several hours it will not start. Engine cranks good but will not think about starting until check engine light goes off. Does this in morning after sitting all night and/or the afternoon after working all day. Once started runs like it has since new. It does seem to be more prevalent during cold weather but also in the summer. Seems as if ECM does not completely finish diagnosis while starting. Engine oil pressure does come up while cranking but doesn't effect the starting problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on

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

Had it at an ASE shop for 2 weeks but they could reproduce problem no codes fuel pressure normal

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

Like I said 95 4.9 with 330k bought new

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.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
