Question about 1994 Ford F150 Styleside Supercab

Truck won't start

We changed the plugs and put new wires on it. It still won't start but it's getting fuel. It may be getting too much fuel. It has almost 200,000 miles and don't think the timing belt(chain?) has ever been changed. Any suggestions??

    I think so..it started once.

  • fbwido Jan 04, 2009

    i think so not for positive though. It did start once but is now back to just cranking with no start

  • fbwido Jan 04, 2009

    not starting was the original problem. I will check for spark next time I'm off and can look at it. The truck is not our primary vehicle so it is not urgent.

Test the spark by taking out the plug and put it in the wire and put it to the block and have a freind turn the key and watch for a blue spark

First of all if you or someone you know has a timing light check the timing to see if it is in time and if it is in time then that is not the problem then second check the condition of the battery make sure it is fully charged and then check the alternator you can do this by getting the truck running and then remove the positive side cable from the battery if it dies then it is the alternator and if it doesn't die then test the starter because there maybe a draw in the starter and before you test the starter make sure all wires are clean on the starter as well as the battery posts

Out of the blue . truck looses power and wants to die. not letting it die by hitting gas peddle it runs but starts back firering supper bad. truck dies .starting up it doesnt want to put . made it home .....


if you have replaced cap and rotor plus coil and it seemed to fire up then i would take the next step. For sure put your new plugs and wires on then make sure you have replaced your air filter, and change out your fuel filter, fire up the vehicle if it doesn't start I would suggest changing the fuel pump. If it starts up make sure you put in some BK fuel injector cleaner in your fuel it might be you have dirty injectors. If all fails then get back with me and we will look else where. Good luck hope this info helps you out

I have a yzf600r. it started yesterday. but then i put in a new battery and niw it won't start. Its like its not getting any gas.


so I take it that the 600 is turning over with the new battery. Did you check the fuel lever? You might have turned it to off when you dropped in the new battery. Otherwise start trouble shooting, Is it getting spark? Take one of the spark plugs out and put the lead wire back on it then touch the bottom the spark plug to metal and turn it over...you should see some spark.Do this to all spark plugs. Then on to fuel, take the fuel feed line off, turn it over and see if fuel sperts out of the line. If all thats good, I would remove the carb. and clean it. Hope this kinda helps :)

Toyota 4runner sr5 won't start its getting gas and spark.


Sounds like the problem is beyond your ability to diagnose

Too much fuel could be a leaking fuel injector or fuel pressure
regulator.

Too much gas & a no start isn't really the issue

Did it start & run before you did the wires,I would check your work
& mark the wires with a pen & also have diagram on paper before
you start a job like that. Especially when if you have no reference
material.

You put a mechanical fuel pressure gauge on a running engine
& the apply vacuum with a hand pump to regulator to watch for
pressure change,eg: pump pressure vs: regulator press

Start with what is missing to start the engine
Do you have fuel pressure?
Do you have spark?
Is the valve timing ok?

Dear Fixya, My 1993 excel hyundai turns over but won't start, we put plugs and wires and new fuel gasket. we r wondering where the fuel pump is, is there one or two pumps and how to get to them to fix...


Have you checked for spark first? Sometimes a car won't start due to no spark. This condition is usually caused by: Security system, bad ignition module, crankshaft sensor, camshaft sensor. You check it by pulling a plug wire and putting a screwdriver in the wire to see if it arcs. If it is getting fire look for the fuel pressure release valve usually located on the fuel rail, looks like a tire valve stem. If it shoots out gas, and you hear the fuel pump prime, check the fuel pressure regulator. It could also be the timing. There are four things needed for a car to start: fuel, spark, timing, compression. As for your question, as far as I know there is one fuel pump, you have to drop the tank to fix it. Hope this helps.

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.

Won't start, fuel pump runs at key on, spark at coil wire into distributor is yellow, little or no spark at plug wire ends


Sounds like bad distributor cap or rotor. If ones bad, might as well change both. Take off the cap and if there is a black color on the ends of the prongs, or on the end of the rotor, time to replace. Is it getting fuel into motor?
