Question about Cars & Trucks
Engine starts but will not keep running
I don't know if this is a help or not, but my 2006 F350 had the same problem, and finally would not start at all. Towed to a Ford dealer, and they found the FCM (Fuel Control Module) was bad. Replaced it, and now it starts fine. Pretty costly, but at least is works. Good Luck

This really is the sign of a dying battery - one that may not be getting any charge to replace it. I would disconnect the +ve lead and put battery on charge for at least 24hrs (with an intelligent charger). Then check Alternator for correct output when running. Also check for current drain when turned off. A high drain may indicate a blown diode in the alternator - the rectifier block is usually replacable without scrapping the whole unit.

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Ranger won't start
I had the same problem , and if you read your book, it could be the fuel pump shut off switch, mine was bad and went from on to off position, its usually under the passenger side of the dash, look underneath at the "top" of the carpet, and you'll see a little red switch, check to see if the thing is plugged in , if it is , check to see if the switch is all the way down. i had to get a new one , sombody must have kicked mine and made it broken, but i got a new one and it worked fine

This is very complex system. Best to have it checked by qualified diesel mechanic who has the proper equipment to check out all the systems, that could be related to the problem you are having. Just to start throwing parts at it can become very expensive very fast

The 7.3 power stroke is not tha bad sheesh its actually pretty simple ok let me ask some questions here ok lets start simple when cranking does the needle on the tach move to approx. 5-600 ? if not more than likely its a cam sensor in which case there is actually a recall from ford they will fix it free.... yes I said free :) if not my second guess would be the Idm they were notorious for getting moisture in them btw IDM stands for injector driver module and you can find a good reman unit online for 200 "use google" if you have a friend with a high end scanner hook up and watch engine rpm there and also do a "buzz test" no buzz = idm fail another easy thing to do is open the drain on the fuel filter bowl and turn the key on and crank for 1 sec is there fuel shooting out ? if there isnt check fuel pump well that about covers it good luck please let us know whats up :)

make sure there is no fuel leak anywhere, replace the return line on the injector pump with a clear line and check for any air bubbles in the system, also make sure the oil level is ok
