Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Poured some gas into the tank that evidently had water in it. Stopped running immediately, of course. Drained fuel tank, replaced fuel filter, drained fuel lines from both directions, used some "heat", but still won't start. Coughs and tries to start, but dies. Fuel filter needed replaced anyway, and after getting that special tool made by Tibetan monks only on every other Tuesday :-( I managed to get fuel filter replaced. Is there a sensor somewhere that I need to replace or check as well? or am I looking at replacing the injectors? Don't know what to check next. If I disconnect the fuel line and turn key on to engage fuel pump I get plenty of fuel and (I assume) pressure. Did that little bit of water ruin a sensor? This engine is fully computer controlled, so I suspect issue now is a sensor somewhere or maybe injectors, but I am really at a loss of what to check next. - help?
Do you have fuel pressure to engine? spray some ether in air intake and see if it fires better.
