SOURCE: 1996 Ford F-350 460 gas engine. Stalls while going

I'd check the manual transfer valve on the dash. They have a tendency to go bad after awhile. Cause 1000 different symptoms, and be the last thing checked/replaced. It's probably the cheapest place to start. The pump under the driver's feet is usually the last one to go in my experience, but the secondary culprit is normally the main pump in the rear tank.

Next time it tries to stall, toggle the fuel switch and see what happens. Same with a hard start. Back and forth a few times quickly.

Hope this helps.

sounds like EGR valve and sensor this controls idle speed when at a stop. the po171 is a burn lean or rich code need to know what bank 1 or 2. also check for a vacuum leak from one of the hoses.

Yes you do. Be careful of the plastic fuel supply line when you reinstall the assembly. The hose can kink, and you will not have fuel pressure.

Any number of thing's could cause this condition , Weak fuel pump , low fuel volume , an engine sensor , mass air flow for one , A crank sensor that is going bad , cam sensor etc... your best bet would be to have it diagnosed professionally , rather then guessing an just replacing parts

check your grounds. I find many easy fixes by cleaning all the grounds around the engine bay. I would also check the ground at the fuel pump connector that wiring is prone to corrosion and breakage

Stalling stuttering after fuel filter change


Air in the fuel filter. there is a fitting you can bleed the fuel system by depressing like a tie valve. Turn ignition on so pump is working and depress the valveon the fuel rail to release the air. Hold untill only fuel comes out. - good luck and no smoking.

2001 ford focus zx3 stalling


Sounds like fuel problems. Turning your car in any direction has nothing to do with it. I assume your car is fuel in jected. Also that you have had the plugs , wires , cap and rotor replaced. If not do this. Then if you still have the problems the fuel presure has to be checked. That requires an inline gage be attached to check the presure while engine is running. If thats okay, then the fuel presure regulator might be sticking. Of course things like water in the fuel take and filters all need to be checked. Im sorry that its a big job. If you have to pay someone itll cost you money. If they just replace parts (guessing) thats no way to go about it. So plugs, wires, cap and rotor.replace. Then fuel delivery. I suggest you get the book for 15 bucks from autozone. Good luck

Escort 1998 1.8 zetec mis firing


try using a gauge to measure fuel delivery pressure but this tool may only be available to the dealer or a big garage,best advice in a case like this is put car in dealers as you cant read the the ECU readings as the OBD II connector cable doesnt have manufacturers pin connections.Have a funny feeling this problem is a concoction of different faults,but try checking gauze filter on bottom of pump in the fuel tank or for porosity on the flexible connections that connect the plastic fuel lines to the unit on the tank .
