Question about 1989 Ford F 250

1 Answer

89 Ford F250 won't start

Starter turns but not enough to crank over motor... I changed coil pack today because I didn't think it was getting fire. How do I know now if it's getting fire. Could it be the battery is getting too low to start it?

I'm single 47 yr old female that needs help!!!

I have check battery cables, they are clean and connected tightly. I've tapped on starter.

If you can just tell me what to check next and walk me through it, I can do it myself! (maybe - LOL)

Maybe give me an order of what to check first, second, third, etc......

To check battery you would need a multi meter to determine how much power is in the battery and how much power is being drawn off the battery when trying to start.Can you borrow a good battery?If you try to jump start the vehicle from another vehicle and engine struggles to turn over its not likely to be a battery fault but an issue with the starter motor or partialy siezed engine.Pull all the spark plugs out and see if the engine will crank over any easier.To check ignition remove spark plug,push removed plug into no.1 H/T lead and lay it on engine block(good earth)crank engine and you should be able to see good spark at spark plug end.Being unable to crank engine at proper speed will not give you proper result so cranking issue must be dealt with first.

My '93 F250 5.8 l Automatic was turning over slowly when cranking to start. Replaced battery no change; Then after sitting for 2 mo. turning key to start produced only a click and dead gauges (battery...


The battery to starter connection has power.the battery is ok.but there are many other possibilities related to battery and its other connections,the spark plugs,the fuel pump,the fuel itself,the sensors(o2 sensor,maf sensor)the valve(IAC valve,egr valve). Most probably the spark plug,the coil pack and crank shaft sensor.This 3 are not getting power to get the car start.

There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--

1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.

2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.

3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.

4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.

5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it's a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.
