Question about 1984 Ford F 150

1 Answer

Truck will crank and then shut off

I have a 1984 Ford F150 inline 6 4x4 with 1bbl carb. The truck will crank and run for about 15-20 min then shut off and wont restart for about an hour or so. I have replaced the fuel line from the Pump to the carb and the filter that goes into the carb. I also replace the Ingition Module, Ignition Coil, Plugs, Wires, Distributor Cap and Rotor...But still have the problem please help me.

You will need to do your testing while the vehicle is in failure to start mode.Check wether the coil is recieving 12v and pour a little fuel down carb to see if it wants to run.If pouring a little fuel down carb makes the car try to fire up you probably have a fuel pump issue.If it doesnt try to fire you have an ignition problem.Hope you get it sorted and good luck.

I have a 1984 f150 with a 302 it turns over but it cranks and cranks then starts. Almost to the point the batt. is dead or you spray starting fluid in carb after running for a while you go to start it...


sounds like you need to bump the timming just a hair. loosen the distributor bolt and turn the whole shaft to the left if that doesnt work go the other way

What could be the problem with the carb if going through way to much gas? 2 barrel carb &manual choke? F150 doesn't want to run very good when cold. Truck just guzzels the gas after started. Got a 302...


Possible things to be considered: Float level too high, needle has a bad seat and won't shut off, vacuum leak (either internal or base gasket), choke not properly adjusted.

My money would go on a carb. rebuild kit (but only if you feel comfortable attempting it) it's not all that difficult, but you MUST be (1) an absolute nut about cleaning it all very well, and (2) the various gaps, clearances, adjustments, must be made with excruciating precision.

This will be a lot cheaper than a rebuilt carb., and you'll get the satisfaction of doing it yourself.

While you're at it do a general tune up.....plugs, points condenser, wires , air filter, PCV, etc.

Some times my 1984 ford f150 idels fine when its in park(some times)but when i put it in drive or reverse idel drops about 500 or so rpm sputters for a little bit and then dies. Some times it runs fine...


In general, yes. This is a carb tuning issue. Another possibility is a vacuum leak somewhere, but most likely, it's a carb issue. You'll typically see your rpm drop a bit when you put it in gear, but that it sometimes stalls out points to a carb issue.
