Question about 1990 Ford F150
My truck wont start from time to time and am would like a seco
My tuck won’t start from time to time. I think it’s the fuel pump but want to have a second opinion. It won’t start at times and then if I let it sit for a while it will start later on. If I do multiple starts at close proximity to each other the second or third attempt it will not start. This morning it would not start first attempt and still wont start. I checked the pressure on passenger side line before and had fuel come out. This morning there was no fuel for the first time. It turns over great and wants to get going but wont start. I would like to know what you think before I start draining my tank and taking it down. Could it be a bad filter or old plugs wires etc? If it is the pump what else should I change while I am in there just the pump or the whole assembly?
You could have rust in your gas tank, what will happen if that is the case is crank and run and when the rust gets stirred up it will clog your pump and filter. After a while it will kill your pump, and ruin your filter, and cause it not to crank at all. I would drain the tank and look at the fuel as it comes out if it has any red in it that is your problem. I had the same problem and that sounds just like my problem. I hope that helps you out.
