Question about 1999 Ford F250 Regular Cab

1 Answer

90 F250 wont start. Truck has 460 motor,

It will start once in a great while, Once I heard a click and it fired right up. Not more than 5 min later it died when I tried to move it and wouldn't start back up. I have tried replacing the coil, the module for spark/air/fuel  the one on the drivers fender. Changed wires, it has new plugs, cap, rotor, air filter. I can smell gas, the fuel pump kicks on when key is on. It sucks air in when trying to start. I replaced positive batt. cable to the starter soleniod. I have to jump it now because it killed the batt from trying so many times. It turns over at different speeds, sometimes fast, and other times it seems like its struggling.  The negative terminal was loose and I saw sparks so I tightened it down and it seems fine but I have no idea on where to go from here. Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Restarting problems

The first thing you need to check is your coolant level. If it is low then the Coolant Temperature Sensor will not be in coolant, but in air, or steam, but either way it will signal the computer that the engine is cold and therefore deliver a very rich fuel mixture, flooding the engine. It could also be the engine temp sensor itself, sending incorrect temp readings to the computer. Either way once the engine has been allowed to cool down, the false signal to the computer will be correct. If the truck is emitting black smoke once it warms up, then this would be another sign that the Engine temp sensor is bad.

Runs but cuts off after 5 mins

Someone will need to figure out if you are loosing spark or fuel when the engine will not stay running.

My 1999 taurus started but died about 5 min later, while all gas, abs, battery lights were on ,it also back fired and died, now it is just spurding & not starting ?

That is a question with a VERY wide range of possibilities. The FIRST thing you should do is to scan your Powertrain Control Module(PCM) to check for any fault codes, then DIAGNOSE accordingly.

My 2000 expedition will not start just clicks under dash but doesnt always first time it happened suddenly came home from store turned motor off got back in 10 mins later just clicked sat for a day or two...

This is a classic sign of a bad starter. When a starter is on its way out, it will usually start when cold. Once it heats up after a short trip or 2, it takes more and more power to get the starter to turn. If the truck will start with a jump when warm, you've confirmed that you have a bad starter.

When i am driving my suzuki ignis (1.3,manual,2001)in a traffic(more than 45 mins)engine starts to miss(check light indicates) and it stops.cant start it for about 10-15 mins

I have a 2001 Suzuki Ignis and I have a similar problem. When I start the engine 5 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on with each beep. Also after I have been driving for about 45 mins 3 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on again. However my engine does not stop running. I have asked people about it and they think that it has something to do with a lose wire in the security system? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

83 f250 with 460. will start and idle for 5-10

What a great truck I've had two, one I drove around in mexico for 6 months. You need to change the fuel filter. It is located under the truck on the fuel line coming from tank about even with the seat. You need a wrench set. Make sure you have the arrow on the new filter going the proper way, toward the motor. Good luck, thats a tough truck

My 89 k5 blazer is taking a jump 2 fire & then drawing ALL the juice from a good gel battery until it dies. is it the alternator ? at first it just wasn't gettin the fuel it needed,she was kinda...

Alternator issue more than likely. I believe the regulator is built in the alternator and the brushes are bad. Brush cnagnge should be considered first. It would only be an $8? fix I believe. It is easy to change brushes if you know what your doing or have a teacher.
