2005 Ford F150 fuel pump not turning on with ignition and misfiring cylenders

Truck will not turn over without starting fluid boost in to mass air diaphram, truck running rough at idle decent on highway. once I get truck running one injector connector (second on right) works intermittently and now hardly at all. Error codes show misfire in #1 and #6 cylenders. Mechanic wants to change computer box, for a thousand dollars. Any other suggestions?

Air in the injector lines #1 and #6? Also if its diesel check the preheating system (plugs/wires/fuses)

I wouldn't recommend continuous use of starter fluid!

hey thanks for bringing me up to speed. ive been working on many other problems but with your great explanation i remember.
we need to check the compression on that cyl. and compare it to the compression on 2 other cylinders your choice.
but before you do this get a can of carb cleaner . and with the car idling spray around the intake manifold in the area of #6 cyl. what we are looking for is a small vacuum leak that would also act like this. with the engine idling and spraying around the intake the engines idle sould not change and if it does when you spray you have an intake leaking.
let me know how it turns out.
later

SOURCE: misfire code, rough idle, full tune up complete,

The black soot on the plugs means that you are running extremely rich. The fuel injectors ma test good electricly, but they are notorious for leaks. The spider-looking thing sandwiched between the plastic intake plenum and the intake manifold gets cracks in it's "legs" and leaks fuel ito the plenum area. The fuel pressure regulator is also housed in this same assembly. if the diaphram in the regulator gets a pinhole in it, it also leaks fuel into the plenum area, causing all kinds of erratic idleing, black smoke from the exhaust, and will cause your fuel trims to drop into the negative 20s.

There is a technical service bulletin covering this subject. This procedure outlines the steps required to replace the existing Central SFI Fuel System with a new MFI (Multiport Flexible Injection) Fuel System.

It is removing the injectors which are all housed in the center body of the injector assembly and replacing them with a new version where the injectors are located where the ols "poppets" used to be in the intake manifold ports. The picture below is for a V-8 engine that is covered by the same TSB.052d4ba.gif
The poppets and the pressure regulator are available individually to fix your existing fuel injection system, but I gave up on that after replacing several poppets only to have them come back in a few months with another popet line broken. I recommend replacing the whole assembly with the new and improved version. My customers have told me after doing this that the engine never ran that smooth when it was new.

The GM part number for the new injector assembly for your V-6 engine is 12568332 it is also now available at several aftermarket parts outlets.

As for the timing chain solution posted by doodieman200, all I have to say is that I have enough fingers on one hand to count all of the failed timing chains I have replaced on these engines. If you don't have a cam/crank sync code, the timing chain has definitely not slipped a tooth.

I have an 87 Ford f350 460 big block 4x4 is been sitting 4 years and now put new fuel pump in it and a battery and it won't start I don't know if that has ignition but it will turn over has gas


won't start Addam, verify weather it has spark, if has spark try a little starter fluid in carberator. If runs then quits after starter fluid, the carberator or pump is still the problem. I will post some touble shooting links that may help you.

1991 F150 Will not crank.


Do real fuel pressure test using test gauge. You changed ignition module but not coil? Are you getting nice fat blue spark? When spraying starter fluid into intake it only tries to start which makes me think you have ignition problem.

Maybe the gas pump or the ignition. Bring it to a near auto parts store and they will diagnose with a scanner.

2001 ford f150 supercrew. sounds like the fuel pump is sucking air. im not getting any gas what so ever to motor. it acts like it want to start sometime but not to offten. it will start up if i spray...


do not use starting fluid. pull the line off from the fuel filter (line comming from the tank). put the line in a bucket and have someone turn the key a few times. if there is good flow replace the fuel filter, if not replace the fuel pump

Engine turns over but won't start / 1995 F-150


Sounds alot like the ignition sensor. In my old Chevys it was under the dist cap, mounted on the dist itself. Mine was flat, slightly curved rectangle shape, with two flat prongs coming out both sides. If it would get an internal break in it, you cant see it. I would have the same problem as you, part was only about $12. And comes out with unscrewing two screws.
Might want to give it a shot.

Ignition


First try to step on gas about one quarter throttle then try to start.If it starts like that I would change the Idle Air Control valve.
