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.

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

95 F250 not starting

You said you tightened the battery cables, did you check the other end of the negative where it bolts to the engine. When you tightened the cables you also used a battery brush and cleaned the posts and ends?

95 f250, 460 motor, battery good, started starts

Check your starter cable down at the starter. Even if you jump the battery you are still feeding the same starter cable under your truck.

It sounds like your battery may be shorting. It will still break connection. You could try to bypass your battery and feed the jumper wires direct to the cables with the cables disconnected from the battery posts of the bad battery. Block the cables with wood or some insulator and then try to start the truck. If it pulls down again you will know it is not the original battery. Then it must be the starter cable or the starter.

Check the ground wires. There use to be a frame ground under the area of the passengers door on the frame.
