Check the exhaust compression. Remove the O2 sensors before the cataylic converts and see if it improves. If it does that means your cats are cloged and need to be replaced.

do you have injector pulse durng initial cranking? you may have a bad cam shaft position sensor that "comes to life" when rpms are up. or an injector has a bad spray nozzle allowing fuel to flow into its cylinder,pulling the spark plugs and checking for any that may be "wet" or smell ''rich'' will help pin-point your problem.

Check your fuel filter again. Dirt from the tank could have clogged it again.

I You can get free fusebox layouts at Autozone.com by registering your vehicle.

Try changing the fuel filter. May be too much resistence is causing the fuelpumps to trip their limit switches.

If you have not used a scanner, someone may have one for this old style system. An bad O2 sensor can adjust the fuel mix too lean to run.

If you have a fuelpressure regulator, it may only cycle once for starting and then fail to trigger the fuelpump a second time to restart the fuelpump.

Check with FordF150blog.com or some of the 4x4 truck offroad sites for some pretty good info about problems like yours in the Backwoods and how to fix them.

I hope my solution is helpful.

I have a 1999 Toyota Camry it starts up and runs for a few seconds and dies right down. I've changed the fuel filter and it seems to run just a little bit longer. But it still will not keep running. A


Check your fuel pressure. It may be low, or losing pressure from a bad pressure regulator. A thorough test of your fuel system seems in order. (A pressure test can also detect a bad regulator, if it's done properly.)

Make sure your fuel pump is kicking on. When you turn the key to on, you should hear it buzzing for a second or two. Being that you changed the fuel filter and it started, this might be your problem.
