Question about 1986 Ford F150 SuperCab

1 Answer

When the truck is running for 30 mins. it turns off

Then we have to wait about an hour or two before it turns on again. i went to a friend technician he told me to check the fuel pressure so he put on a fuel pressure tester and we drove around and it didn't turn off, we drove for about thirty minutes. but as soon as i took it off it started acting up.

Still sounds like a fuel pump! You could either have a wire rubbing and shorting out somewhere or it could be a weak fuel pump on it's way out.

Fuel pumps do funny things and you never know how there gonna go when they do.

I would first try running a set of wires from the battery straight to the fuel pump. Drive around see if that helps if it does it's your wiring. If not it's most likely your fuel pump.

Hope this helps!!!

Car will start run but when i get out and leave it for more than 30 mins it wont start back up and i have to wait over an hour untill it starts again

Will it turn over? it not your starter is getting hot and not working. If yes most likely your coil is getting hot and breaking down.
