Question about 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty SuperCab

1 Answer

7.3 liter will not start.

The low pressure side of the fuel system is ok, we have fuel to the filter and I would assume to the fuel rail as well. We decided to install a pressure guage on the high pressure oil line from the pump to the valve cover and when turning over the engine we see no pressure at all therefore no fuel pressure to the injectors. We thought maybe cam position sensor but we are not receiving any engine codes while turning the engine over. Is the high pressure oil pump knowing for quitting on these engines?

    We checked the level of the oil res. and it is right up, the crank case is also to the correct level. We thought for awhile that we were not cranking fast enough but we put chargers on the batteries to keep them up while trying to start this truck so I think we are cranking over fast enough. The biggest problem we have is we have nothing to connect to the computer to see what the computer is doing during cranking. We want to bring it to the dealer but with the really cold weather in Canada right now the dealer will not be able to look at it until the New Year so we would like to see if we could solve the problem ourselves. I am going to double check the oil level in the crank case and make sure it is not low. Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes they are you stated that you have mech oil pressure did you install a gauge?. this is a fuel line pressure sensor on the right bank at the frt of the head this sensor is rail pressure that high pressure oil pump creates check you pressure there that will elimnate that head the other side is a little more of a pain to test. one other thing to keep in mind is that the cranking speed is very important, and have you checked the oil level on a 7.3 deisel if you are more than 3 qaurts low on oil you will trap air in the high pressure pump. this will cause a hard start our even a no start

    i have one more idea to isolate whether it is elec or mech. if your standing in front of the mtr on your left hand at the frt of the head there will be a tube and on that tube there is a sensor that sensor is called fuel rail pressure sensor it mesure the amount of oil pressure coming from the high pressure oil pump . high pressure oil is what cause the injectors to open . the comupter only controls how long there open. remove the sensor and install a gauge, cranking pressure should be over 500 psi i hope this will help and good luck

2000 Grand Marquis, battery lost charge over winter. I recharged turns over good. Car was real low on fuel so I added a 20 liter of fuel. Can I open a connection on the rail to check the fuel pump?


**DON'T OPEN THE FUEL RAIL!!** The injectors run at a VERY high pressure! If you need the fuel pressure checked, get a good mechanic to do it.
Assuming that...
the vehicle was a runner before the winter.
there is fuel in the tank.
there are no warning lights showing on the dash.
Try cranking the engine over in short bursts. This should pull the fuel through and the engine should start.

1999 cadillac Seville won't start only whrn spraying throttle body cleaner . I got spark and fuel on fuel rails with pressure what else y check


The fact that it will start with the throttle body cleaner means that the PCM is attempting to start the engine. The fact that there is fuel at the rail and there is pressure may be misleading. There may not be ENOUGH pressure at the rail to do the job. Check the fuel pressure regulator....pull the vacuum line off the regulator. If there is any fuel in the line, the regulator is faulty and must be replaced. This is the most likely candidate.

DTC P0087: Fuel Rail Pressure (FRP) Too Low

Circuit/System Description
The fuel injection pump supplies high pressure fuel to the fuel injection rails, and then to the fuel injectors through high pressure pipes. The fuel rail pressure (FRP) sensor is a three wire sensor mounted in the right fuel injection rail. The FRP sensor uses a 5-volt reference circuit , a signal circuit, and a low reference circuit to monitor fuel rail pressure. This information is sent to the engine control module (ECM) to assist in the fueling of the engine.

Fuel Pressure Regulator Solenoid Supply Voltage
P0088, P0090
P0088
P0090
P0087, P0191, P2510
Conditions for Setting the DTC
P0087
• The actual FRP is more than 15 MPa (2,176 psi) below the desired FRP.
OR
• The actual FRP is less than 22.5 MPa (3,263 psi).

Action Taken When the DTC Sets
• DTCs P0087 and P0088 are Type A DTCs.
• The ECM commands the engine to operate in the Reduced Engine Power mode.
• The message center displays Reduced Engine Power.

Important: Because of the cleansing properties of the biodiesel, switching from the straight diesel to a biodiesel blend can prematurely restrict the fuel filter with normal deposits in the fuel system. A fuel filter replacement might be required sooner than the recommended interval.
P0087
If DTC P0090, P0168 or P0191 is also set, refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) List - Vehicle.
Ignition ON for 90 seconds, verify the scan tool FRP Regulator Command parameter is less than 20 percent.
? If greater than the specified range, replace the ECM.
Attempt to start the engine.
? If the engine does not start, refer to Engine Cranks But Does Not Run.
Install the CH-48027 to the fuel rail service port and slowly increase the engine speed until reaching wide open throttle (WOT). The value should be between 1-4 inches Hg vacuum.
? If more than the specified value, inspect for restricted fuel filter or damaged supply lines.
? If no restriction was found, test for high fuel return flow. Refer to Fuel System Diagnosis - High Pressure Side.
With the engine idling or at an idle, command the fuel pressure control to 180 MPa (26,106 psi) with a scan tool. Observe the Actual Fuel Rail Pressure parameter. The actual fuel pressure should be the same as the commanded pressure.
? If the Actual Fuel Rail Pressure is less than 165 MPa (23,931 psi), refer to Fuel System Diagnosis - High Pressure Side.
Important: If the fuel temperature is near 121°C (250°F) during the duplication of the complaint, or in the Failure Records for this DTC, inspect for a restriction in the fuel cooler air flow or the fuel heater always ON. Refer to Fuel Heater Always On.
Operate the vehicle within the conditions for which the customer complaint occurs while observing the CH-48027 . You may also operate the vehicle within the conditions that you observed in the Freeze Frame/Failure Records.
? If the vacuum was more than 12 inches Hg of vacuum at any time in the operating range, inspect for kinked or restricted fuel supply lines.
Operate the vehicle within the conditions for which the customer complaint occurred. Observe the Actual fuel Rail Pressure and Desired Fuel rail Pressure parameters with a scan tool. Fuel pressures should be the same for both parameters.
? If the Actual Fuel Rail Pressure is less than the Desired Fuel Rail Pressure, refer to Fuel System Diagnosis - High Pressure Side.
? If fuel system tests normal, refer to Diagnostic Aids.

Fuel pressure 1998 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 L V6


You should have a test port on the Fuel Supply rail, use a tool from a local auto parts "Tool Loaner program" where you can borrow tools for free,w/a deposit of course,then follow the steps provided;

MPI Fuel System Pressure Test

The MPI fuel system used in vehicles equipped with a 4.OL engine employs a vacuum balanced pressure regulator. Fuel pressure should be approximately 55-69 kPa (8-10 psi) lower with the vacuum line attached to the regulator than with the vacuum line disconnected. System fuel should be 214 kPa (31 psi) with the vacuum line connected to the regulator and 269 kPa (39 psi) with the vacuum line disconnected. CAUTION: Some fuel may be discharged when connecting fuel gauge to fuel rail.
  1. Connect a 0-414 kPa (0-60 psi) fuel pressure gauge to test port pressure fitting on fuel rail (Fig. 7).
  2. Remove vacuum line from pressure regulator.
  3. Start the vehicle.
  4. Note gauge reading. With vacuum line disconnected, fuel pressure should be approximately 269 kPa (39 psi).
  5. Connect vacuum line to pressure regulator. Note gauge reading. Fuel pressure should be approximately 214 kPa (31 psi).
  6. If fuel pressure is not approximately 55-69 kPa (8-10 psi) higher with vacuum line removed from regulator, inspect pressure regulator vacuum line for leaks, kinks or blockage. CAUTION: Fuel pressure will rise to as much as 655 kPa (95 psi) when the fuel return tine is pinched shut, shut engine down immediately after pinching oft fuel return line.
  7. If fuel pressure is low, momentarily pinch shut the hose section of the fuel return line. If fuel pressure remains low, inspect the fuel supply line, fuel filter, and fuel rail inlet for blockage. If fuel pressure rises replace fuel pressure regulator.
  8. If fuel pressure is above specifications, inspect the fuel return line for kinks and blockage.

Capacity Test

  1. Remove the cap from the pressure test port in the fuel rail.
  2. Connect a 0-414 kPa (0-60 psi) fuel pressure gauge to the pressure fitting on the fuel rail (Fig. 7).
  3. Start the vehicle. Pressure should be approxi- mately 214 kPa (31 psi) with the vacuum hose connected to the pressure regulator and 269 kPa (39 psi) with the vacuum hose removed from the pressure regulator.
  4. If the pressure is not to specification, check the following before replacing the fuel pressure regulator:
  • 4a - Inspect the fuel supply and return lines/hoses for kinks or restricting bends
  • 4b - Check the fuel pump flow rate. A good fuel pump will deliver at least 1 liter of fuel per minute with the fuel return line pinched off. If the fuel pump does not pump adequately, then inspect the fuel system for a plugged fuel filter or fuel pump inlet filter (sock). Fuel pump flow rate can be done by connecting one end of an old A/C gauge hose to the fuel test port on the fuel rail and inserting the other end of the hose into a container of at least 1 liter capacity. Run the fuel pump by installing a jumper wire into diagnostic connector terminals D1-5 and D1-6. Be sure to pinch off the fuel return line or most of the fuel will be returned to the fuel tank.

Chevy tahoe 1999 now it starts but runs for a few seconds then i wait it starts and run for a few seconds again


Seem's like your fuel pump isn't able to keep the good fuel pressure.

Might be a good idea to check your fuel rail pressure. I assume that it drops before your engine dies!!!

If fuel pressure is ok in your rail, try cleaning the fuel rail and injectors. Sometimes dirt can go from a trashed fuel filter an clog yor rail or the injectors.

The best way to assess the fuel delivery is to connect a pressure gauge to the top of the fuel filter, or in line via a t-piece, and measure the fuel delivery pressure. It should be about 40 psi. If low, change the fuel filter, and recheck.

If still low, it is a faulty fuel pump. If OK by the method shown in the link below (ie with fuel rail disconnected), then check the fuel pressure regulator at the end of the fuel rail.

See here p179 and p187

http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/eg1.pdf

Another classic cause of hard starting is incorrect ignition timing. If the timing belt is old, it may have jumped a tooth, so check the timing. See the above link, p18
