Question about 1999 Ford F250 Regular Cab

Open Question

1999 Ford F250 7.3 stalled and wont start back up?

I have a 1999 Ford F250 with a two tank golden fuel system installed. It is an older installation in being that the main tank is the veggie tank and a 19 gallon tank is in the bed for diesel. I recently experienced a loss of power and sputtering in the veggie side so I switched back to diesel and ordered the Racor R120 filter and replaced it. Shortly after I switched back over to veggie the engine completely lost power and stalled. I haven't been able to get it to fire up since. I was told that it is probably hydro locked but I am not sure what that means. I am guessing I probably got some air in the fuel lines but am not sure how to properly bleed them now that it’s too late to prime the filter properly. When the engine does turn over lots of white smoke comes out of the exhaust, a symptom of air in the fuel lines, but I have drained the batteries four times trying to get it all out. What is the proper way to get all the air out and also to push all the veggie oil through so that I can start it off diesel since it stalled on veggie oil?

SOURCE: Ford engine doesn't start after self tune up

Ok here is the meaning of firing order The numbers 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 represent the order of wish cylinder the distributor send a spark as it rotates Starting whit cylinder number 1 The distributor will have to rotor on the number 1 cylinder spark plug and the piston on the number 1 cylinder will be at the top So the fuel and air will be compressed and ignited by the spark plug. The next one will be the cylinder number 5 to do the same as the crankshaft and distributor rotate Next will be number 4 then 2 then 6 ? 7 ? 8. You get the idea "10 Degrees" The degrees represent of spark advance You may think gas explode instantly but it actually take a little time So for the explosion has maximum power when the piston reaches the top of the cylinder the distributor send the spark a little ahead of time 10 degrees of revolution is the recommended by the manufacture but that can be adjust buy losing up the distributor clap bolt and manually turn it. In order to adjust that you need a timing gun Than will flash light on the crankshaft pulley (harmonic balancer) and you will see a notch and a series of numbers than represents the timing advance Note If you have not turn the distributor by loosing to button clap bolt I recommend to live it alone and go to you local part store and get the repair manual find the firing order to see wish wire go to wish cylinder Rotate the crack shaft pulley on till the notch is on 0 and see if the distributor rotor is tours cylinder number one. Cars than don?t used distributor do that automatically and constantly adjust the ignition timing by the computer.

are you losing coolant? ford had a huge problem with that engine,and the coolant eats the main bearings.

HAVE YOU CHECKED THE FUEL LINES WHERE THE FUEL PRIMING PUMP IS CONNECTED FOR ANY CHAFFING THEY ARE COMMON FOR CHAFFING BESIDE THE FUEL FILTER WHICH WOULD EXPLAIN WHY FUEL IS RETURNING TO FUEL TANK.

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Taurus 3.0L OHV won't hold coolant?

Hello! There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) #1-15-6 that addresses electrolysis in the cooling system...If this TSB has been installed on your vehicle...There will be a tag on the drivers door with the TSB #...Also, a restrictor will be inserted into the heater core inlet...Lets eliminate this right up front...Check to see if this TSB is installed...
The vehicle does have a closed system...Electrolysis, coupled with air in the system is the likely culprit...Replacing the metal lines with rubber will increase electrolysis, which turns the coolant to a "goop"...Coolant flow is adequate when being pumped, but when you shut the engine off the goop blocks the system...Pressure is high...So coolant spews out...
I'll send a test to determine the level of electrolysis...You will need a DIGITAL multimeter...We'll fix the the electrolysis...flush the system...replace the thermostat...And properly bleed the air...Send comment about TSB and do yo have the digital meter...Guru...........Saailer

Testimonial: "No, TSB is not installed. No label, and there was nothing in the heater core inlet when I re-did the system. I own a DMM."

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer, it runs great then will **** like it is out of gas, then it will stall. when i try turning over it sputters and shakes and never really gets started then stalls again. If it...


It may sound really stupid, but the fuel itself may be the issue... have you put any gasoline conditioners in the tank? Do you typically run with a full tank or empty tank (water condensing in the fuel tank) -- do not forget in the future that the fuel quality sucks these days - small engines, especially 2 cycle are getting eaten up by ethanol and the fuel itself is breaking down rapidly!!
Alternatively, the fuel tank cap may be an issue.Otherwise, the fuel filter, then the fuel pump (test the fuel pressure) - this is pretty much the least to most expensive ways to begin... In all appearances is has to do with the fuel in one way or another...
PS: Good job in putting the problem in writing with details.
Best regards

How to Change a Fuel Pump in a 2001 Ford Crown Victoria


STEPS TO CHANGE FUEL PUMP
  1. Park the vehicle in a safe place and make sure there is enough room around the back of the vehicle for you to work and move tools around.
  2. Start the engine and let it idle while you relieve the fuel system pressure by removing the fuel pump fuse or relay from the fuse box. Wait a few seconds for the engine to stall, turn the ignition key off and replace the relay or fuse.
  3. Raise the back of your car using a floor jack and support it safely on jack stands.
  4. Disconnect the fuel tank filler pipe and the fuel pump connector located above the cross member underneath the vehicle.
  5. Disconnect the vapor tube from the tee connector on the right side of the car-passenger side-and the vapor line from the canister tube.
  6. Support the fuel tank with a jack and remove the nuts from the holding strap using a wrench or ratchet and socket. Move the strap away and lower the fuel tank. Discard the fuel tank mounting studs.
  7. Unplug the pressure transducer electrical connector located on the top rear corner of the fuel tank.
  8. Clean the area around the fuel pump mounting flange and remove the flange mounting bolts in a crisscross pattern.
  9. Lift the fuel pump assembly off the tank. Replace the new fuel pump in the assembly and install the assembly in the tank. Install the flange screws and torque to 89 inch lbs. (10Nm) using a crisscross pattern.
  10. Raise the fuel tank to its mounting position, install the strap using new mounting studs and torque the nuts to 26 foot lbs. (35 Nm).
  11. Connect the fuel pressure transducer electrical connector, vapor tube to the tee connector, vapor line to the canister tube, fuel tank filler pipe and fuel pump electrical connector.
  12. Lower the vehicle, start the engine and check for leaks.

Car stalls and wont start back up.I add a bottle of gas treatment and it starts.Why? I was told it was the crank or cam sensor.How do I tell which?


When was last set of new plugs & wires installed? reason I'm asking is that I had a neon do same, would run fine with gasline antifreeze in tank, but stall & carry on without it. Turned out to be bad plugs & wires.(weak spark ignited better when additive in tank mixed with fuel)

Has power but wont start,has full tank of gas


Its not common but you may have water in your gas. You will need to check engine for both fuel and spark. If the car will start then die off a short squirt of ether then it would be a fuel problem. Then you'll need to find out if it to do with the fuel or the fuel system.

Truck will not start


You know a problem with the Fords is that the fuel tank level indicator can start reading higher than normal if you are pushing the level in the tank to the brim when fueling. So be sure that you have fuel. If you ran out of fuel the fuel line will need to be primed. If thats the issue I can supply more information on how to prime. Also bad fuel will not allow the truck to run, especially water. The sensor should indicate water issues. Also whats the temperature where you are? Later hope this helps.
