From what your desribing your truck shift linkage needs adjusting if it is not starting and this is happening i would first went to the safety nuetral switch mounted on the tranny by your shift lever it might not be lined up because of the shift adjustment try with somone helping you chalk the wheel have some one help you under your truck you should see a nut that holds your shifting arm to your tranny loosen have someone inside hold shift level up tight to get the play out make sure the lever arm on your tranny is all the way either forward or backward in the position it should be in for park retighten nut if the neutral switch is slightly off it will create no start condition good luck

Fuel engine stops then start up in 1 min


You probably have an electronic ignition system to go with those fuel injectors. It sounds like it runs just long enough to empty the fuel out of the injectors, which means there might be a vacuum problem. I'm a carburetor person myself. Are you sure it sound like it NEEDS gas or could it be flooding?

A 1991 ford f150 302 engine. Front and rear cylinders firing. Center 4 cylinders flooding out. Tune up was done. I Replaced engine control computer. Ignition relay replaced. No change.


you may have a problem with the injector circuit.either bad injectors/dirty or the injector circuit has a problem such as connection or ecm.check for codes in the computer as this may help guide you in right direction to start diagnoising.could also be bad ignition components,incorrect plug gap or plug,wires,cap or rotor problem.does these cylinders have spark at the plug.i am guessing the problem was there before the tune-up.

Can I put a 1981 ford f-150 motor in a 1991 ford f-150 truck


Sounds to me like you opened a can of worms that you are not equipped/qualified to deal with. To begin with, doing an engine change the way you did it is illegal. It is OK to put the newer motor in the older vehicle, but it is against federal law to put the older engine into the newer vehicle. REFERENCE: EPA ENGINE SWAP FACT SHEET

With all that said, if you want to do a swap like that, it is necessary to also swap wiring harnesses and computer modules (among several other components) if you expect it to work.

Just bought 1991 Ford Probe lx v6 won't start


If you have spark and fuel (either via the injectors or spraying fluid into the intake), and still no evidence of firing, it suggests your valvetrain may not be working. If the valves can't open, the fuel cant get into the cylinder.

Do (or have done) a compression test. You may have a broken timing belt/chain.

1991 Ford F150 starts for an instant then stalls


my dad used to say you need two things to start a motor; gas and fire. Check these and make sure they are both good. You have to go through the steps from there. Could be a fuel filter. could be bad plugs. etc. etc... Hope it helps.
