Check your battery voltage while cranking. If it's too low, the electronics won't work and the injectors won't fire. If the batteries are down a bit, there won't be enough power to turn the engine over fast enough to start. It needs a minimum of 100 rpm and 8 volts while cranking. You also might try waiting till you're sure the GPR has dropped out. That takes the GP load off the batteries and may get the voltage up enough to get it to start, oh and also does the tach move when you're cranking? If not, then chances are the CPS is the culprit.

SOURCE: engine turns over but will not start

Check the distributor and timing order to make sure it has not jumped at all from a timing malfunction.

1989 f 150 loss of power in 2nd and misses the hole time..it has a 5.0 changed plugs wires cap and button and coil...dont know what else to do


if you already did a tune up, make sure you have the correct firing order. Ford made 2 different 5.0 one was for the mustang another for the truck. the mustang 5.0 firing order started 1,3,7,2,6,5,4,8 the truck firing order if I can recall correctly started 1,5,4,2,6,3,7,8. also might want to check or replace fuel pump.

Have replaced Fuel pump on frame, fuel filter, Distributor cap and rotor and ignition control module. Engine still cuts off after awhile. when it cools it will run for awhile in 2nd gear, if I shift to 3rd...


Check under the distributor cap and look at the connector where the ignition module connects to the pick-up coil/stator, and if it is dark or burnt looking then replace the pick-up coil/stator or the entire distributor. Here is an image of the ignition pick-up coil/stator and you will notice the white connector, and when that connector becomes dark or burnt looking then the pick-up coil/stator is faulty.

Its a ford f-150 1989 and it will not fire


If the ignition module does not fix the problem,replace the pick up coil in the distributor.Make sure the rotor button is turning first,if it is not,then the timing chain has broke.

I have an 89 ford f-150 cranks wont start got fire, timing is right, fuel pump is pumping


Hi,
Since you're sure that you are getting gas and fire and timing is right... (also check firing order), has anything been done recently that could help you locate the problem? Such as removed distributor (could be 180 degrees out)? New plug wires (maybe crossed)?
All else I could recommend is checking cylinder compression (In case the valves are the problem)... The engine timing chain could need replacing...
Hope this helps... Good luck!
