Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

Do you have a scanner that can monitor live PCM data?

If so need readings for FLP (fuel low pressure) FRP (fuel rail pressure) FVC fault (fuel volume control).

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I DO HAVE A SNAP-ON SOLTUS SCANNER, I CAN SEE THE FUEL RAIL PRESSURE BUT COULDN'T FIND THE FUEL LOW PRESSURE
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 month ago

OK so what is the rail pressure when cranking engine?

Any of these codes present?

  • P00C6, P0087, P008A, P008B, P018C, Or P018D

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
sorry did find low side pressure, when cranking lsp is 85-102 psi hsp is 1438psi only codes i have are P26b7-00
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 month ago

OK, fuel system looks fine by those readings. P26b7 won't cause this symptom.

I would check compression next.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
what is compression supposef to be?
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 month ago

They don't publish exact spec, at least 150 psi or so.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
ok just got plugs pulled and all the plugs were wet and soaked in fuel, teste spark on cylinder one and its getting nice strong spark
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 month ago

Yes I figured it had spark and fuel since it fires off.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
all cylinders between 147-158
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 month ago

What led you to replace the low pressure pump?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
when you first crank it over, it hesitates trying to start, then kicks off runs good for about 2 seconds then stumbles like its running out of fuel
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 month ago

Ok, so you didn't check fuel pressure before pump replacement.

Maybe its just flooded. I would try cleaning or replacing the spark plugs. If still the same then next is exhaust restriction or air inlet restriction.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
i did not check the low side before, already have replaced plugs but will clean these again, exhaust is off at the b-pipe flange and did check induction at the air cleaner.
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 1 month ago

OK Dan, I'm out of ideas.I will opt out and see if any other experts have any other ideas.

Ok let's go basics...is fuel pressure at specs? Is spark consistent? Timing? Injector pulse? Do you want me to provide a list of things to do or do u want to talk on phone and go thru siag steos? Is this ur car?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
customers car, fuel pressure on low side is between 82-105 at cranking, high pressure is between 1430-1500 , compression is all around 150psi when i pulled the plugs they all were coated in fuel. checked spark on cylinder 1 and was nice consistant spark. i have replaced in tank fuel pump and spark plugs
Ford Mechanic: eric remington,

H​AVE YOU COMPARED THESE READINGS WITH SPECS? OK WHAT ABOUT AIR HAVE YOU CHECKED IDLE MOTOR AND TIMING? YOU SAY EXHAUST NOT RESTRICTED?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
last tech said there was no specs for compression, fuel pressure he said was in spec, have not checked idle motor or timing. i can't find any info in those.
Ford Mechanic: eric remington,
 replied 1 month ago
Can u see what timing says on scanner?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Only thing is sasys about timing is desired cam timing on intake and exhaust, both stay at zero under cranking
Ford Mechanic: eric remington,

DOESNT SOUND RIGHT...DO YOU HAVE A LABSCOPE OR METER THAT CAN MEASURE HERTZ FREQUENCIES

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: eric remington,
 replied 1 month ago

WHAT ABOUT CONTAMINATED FUEL? IS MASS AIR FLOW READING GOOD? EXHAUST NOT CLOGGED? IF YOU OPEN THROTTLE UP TO LET MORE AIR IN DOES THAT HELP IDLE AIR MOTOR WORKING PROPERLY?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
no on the meter, removed the exhaust at the b-pipe when i did the fuel pump, doesn't sound clogged when it does run, throttle makes no difference, what would a good MAF reading be for this vehicle
Ford Mechanic: eric remington,
 replied 1 month ago

fuel not full of water or contaminated? I will try and find a good maf reading for you. good injector pulse consistent spark ?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: eric remington,
 replied 1 month ago

all engines need spark fuel air compression and everything has to be timed correctly and engine needs to exhale no restricted exhaust... but thats ok... so lets ck for something else besides exhaust

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Ford Mechanic: eric remington,

if you crack throttle open so more air gets in. does this have a cable actuated accelerator?

l​ook at e ?41 percent that downt look right compare ti with readings on you voltmeter/ohmmeter and see if that is what its actually reading or wheter computer thinks that's what it is? so sensor issue or pcm issue...that is what we need to determine

removed the fuse from F56 interior fuse panel, as that was the only one i seen that said anything about fuel pump, tried starting and it does the exact same thing. is this normal or have i pulled the wrong fuse

try spraying starting fluid in the intake.

doesnt make a difference, well it didnt when fse was still in there, why would it still start up for a second if the fuel pump fuse is pulled?

Sounds like its flooded. Remove fuel pump fuse. put a jump box on it, hold throttle wide open and crank engine

with that fuse pulled low side pressure is only around 14.7 psi but the high side pressure stays steady ast 1600psi
