E150 intermittent starting problem

I have a 2001 e150 that normally starts with the first touch of the key. Lately, for no apparent reason it will crank but not fire. Sometimes it will be several minutes of trying before it returns to normal. Then just like normal the first touch of the key and it is off and running fine. It may be a week or more before it fails again. There seems to be fuel but no spark. Can you help?

it is possable/likely a bad ECTS (engine coolant tep. sensor), this can cause the injectors to allow to much fuel into cylinders and cause a low compression and or flooding situation, good luck, marty

It sounds like the pickup coil in the distributor, when it gets hot, it goes open circuit. Changing the plugs won,t help

Computer Module Intermittent Fault


The very first thing you need to do here is check fuel pressure when the no start occurs, if the pump is original then that is a good possibility that pump is failing to run at times.

My 2004 impala will start and then not start in no apparant reason. has done this more frequently lately


If you mean that it will not turn over all the time, it could be the starter solenoid or a bad electrical connection to the solenoid. This could be an intermittent problen until it goes altogether.

Intermittent starting


Charlie, let me just say...wow! That is ALOT of starts! Fords are good vehicles if they are taken care of. It does seem like an ignition switch problem and those aren't fun to repair. I shouldn't have to tell you that it involves getting into the steering column, and such. My buddy just had the same problem with his F150 about 6 months ago and it was the ignition switch. Maybe there needs to be a CN (customer notification) on this problem. Seems to happen alot on these. Good luck!
