1 have a 96 ford f 250 it runs when it is cool but wont start when it gets hot 9.4 eng

Temperature sensor is stuck on hot. It leans the fuel mix too much to start when hot. Sometimes this is called the "cold start sequence" that the engine needs to reset into for a rich fuel mix for starting.

I have a F250, 5.0 1985 FUEL INJECTED Engine that will not start cold, why?

Bad coolant temp sensor. This part asks as choke on FI engines. Some older FI engines also have a cold start injector. Check to see if yours does.

Starts geat, runs good, but after driving 20 minutes and shut it off, wont turn over, like battery is dead, Battery posts unusually hot. all new parts.

Based on the information provided, it sounds like a bad starter. Even a bad starter when cold will start your car or truck. When a bad starter heats up, it requites more and more power to make it engage. If you've ruled out other possibilities, I'd consider replacing the starter.

Turns over, but wont start,cables dont get hot but starters does

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

It gets hot for the starter solenoid is forced. Have good fuel supply? This is commonly caused by a faulty fuel pump. As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you replace the fuel pump and this can resolve the issue.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I own a ford e-250 79. when cold it's start nice

Hello tchuire13: My name is Roger and I will help you. The problem you describe is that of a bad starter. When the bushings wear down the armature will touch the fields inside the starter case. This happens when the starter is warm. Starter will generally work fine cold. After a heat soak the starter acts up. Replacement of the starter should cure your problem. SHould you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This is how we know you received the correct answer to your question. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
