ok

do you have a voltmeter to check the battery voltage??

check to see if the voltage is 12.4 to 12.6 volts. anything below is a low battery.

I put new battery. Still no start.
It was running fine. I went to a friends house, went to crank it almost acted as a dead battery. I tried again and it struggled to turn over and instantly started rough. I drove home very low power spuddering.
Turned it off. Now won’t start
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
When I do try to turn it over it kinda has a “puff pop”
Ford Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 3 months ago

ok

what is the battery voltage??

then check it when you try to crank the engine. you will need a second person.

did you clean the cables real good??

it does sound like a starter but that would not make it low in power. a failing alternator would if it is not re charging the battery

I put new battery. Cleaned cables even checked for a loose ground maybe. No find. It’s like something shorted out. It may have been a low voltage problem, but I changed the battery. Seems like something may have shorted out or something. But bad thing is no code.
It may have had a code but I changed the dang battery.
