They said the tesed it and it was bad i could not tell they changed it no fix . I changed the fuel regulater still not fixed unpluged oxygen sensers no change still not fixed i have no idea what is wrong with the truck. I runs ok intill you drive it about 15-20 minitue the it really gets bad . I can forget about pulling anything it has no power. Could it be the moter ? About a 1 year ago i had a new moter put in the truck by ford machanics could they have wired some thing wrong? Everybody i talk to has no idea how to fix it including ford machanics.

Hi there, the compression test can reveal indeed if the engine is gone, or if the head gasket is starting to go.

If this is a head gasket problem, then car will have less compression.

Is the check engine light on.Sounds like you have a head gasket leaking or a pinhole in the head.That will leak in the cylinder and make it mess when it gets wormed up.Have the cooling system presser tested.That will give you a lean bank 1and lean bank 2.Get some block seal for a quik fix.

You need to check for spark and also do a fuel pressure test. do you have a check engine light on?

Posted on Jan 17, 2009

  • Jerry Parmanand Jan 17, 2009

    check for vacuum leak, try spraying throttle body cleaner into the throttle body half a can of it, you will need the have someone step on the gas or you could just try to get access to the throttle cable and keep the car running at 2000 RPM so it will not shut off on you while you do this. try to erase the code after this by using a scan tool or disconnect the battery for 10 seconds. this should help if not and code come up again get a tune up.

You don't need a new motor.

If you have a good eye, get up in the engine compartment and look over the vacuum hoses for starters. These things are tricky to catch but are often a cause for the fuel injector manifold's failure to respond correctly. A hose off or a hose with a crack or cut will cause problems just like this.A hose can even collapse on heavy vacuum demand if its faulty. You really have to give them a close examination carefully to rule this out as it can cause this problem.

You probably have a butterfly valve in your air intake system that is also responding from the onboard computer and it may be stuck from debrie(s). Take some time to rule that out as well.

Then you have all the electrical connectors that instruct the fuel injection system how much fuel to air to supply and at what idle speed when the engine is cold. Those connections. Not that it is that one, its just an example, remove and reattach them all.

In the long run, these things are always the simplest of problems, especially the more complicated they appear at first. Your hunch about the fuel filter is not that far off. Have you run out of gas lately? If the answer is yes, the issue is sludge in the fuel pump pre filter, its just a screen. And in the gas tank is a pickup screen. There are several areas where the fuel supply can be affected by bad gas, sludge and scum in the tank and from running on empty in the Winter.

Anyway. Look for the simple answer and since tomorrow is Saturday, give one of those friends who is a whiz with motors a call and bring in another mind on this. I think you're on the right track now, you may just need another pair of eyes on this.

Best of luck, let us know in the end what it is.

    On your truck you may have two fuel pumps. Dumping the gas tank was smart. There is still the screens at the fuel pumps and I've personally plugged up a fuel pump itself.

    Your issue does sound like fuel starvation and the error codes confirm that. I only suggest you don't get too hung up thinking one area is completely ruled out.

    Good hunting.

    Glenn Rogers Jan 17, 2009

    When and if you completely rule out the fuel system and have verified your fuel lines are clear and all the pre screens are clean it only leave air supply. But, I think you and your buddies are pretty smart based on what you've done.

    In the end, trust your intuition. Your instinct will never let you down.

A vehicle's fuel filter is used to keep the fuel that is used in the fuel injection system clean to avoid plugging the fuel injectors and the fuel pressure regulator. The fuel filter should be changed between 25,000 and 35,000 miles depending on driving conditions. First locate and identify the fuel filter, all vehicles are different so you might have to look around for it. Some are under the hood and others are under the car or truck like the one used in this example.

    After the fuel filter mount is installed reinstall fuel filter. Make sure the
    sealing "O" rings are in place, in good condition and free from debris. Remount
    filter and reconnect. Start vehicle to check for leaks. note: some fuel filter
    have a release tool to remove the fuel filter like Ford. To use the release tool
    insert the tool over the fuel line near the fuel filter, push the tool inward to
    release the fuel line from the filter. To reinstall the new filter push the fuel
    lines onto the new filter, the fuel lines automatically hold onto the new
    filter.

    A fuel filter is a filter in the fuel line that screens
    out dirt and rust particles from the fuel. To keep vehicle in good running
    order replace fuel filter every 25,000 and 35,000 miles for sever conditions
    or with every tune up.

If i were you i would check my injectors on 1 and 2 cylinder or compression test maybe need it to justify your diagnose...i give you a lil advice if this one work you will save a lot of money go to super express lube ask for 144k injector cleaner, what it does is cleaning any deposit on the injectors cleaning your combustion chamber,manifold,valves also your piston..

Does the motor feel like it has a miss when you are driving.... a cheap fix may be that you have water in your gas... .buy a couple bottles of gas line antifreeze from autozone... even walmart has them.... two in the tank now and one each time you fill up.
Gas line antifreeze is alcohol.. no not the kind you drink but it sucks up water in the fuel...

Hi
You will need to have the codes scanned and a thorough diagnosis. I would suggest to have it scanned for DTC's. You could have EGR valve problems, or even a turbo that is sticking.

It almost sounds like you are losing compression but i cant see one or even two cylenders causing that much loss in power. still though. best thing you can do that is cheep is start checking airflow lines from the airfilter to the tail pipe. make sure nothing is blocking airflow. next plugs and plug wires. you personalty need to check that the fuel pump is working. simple unplug the fuel line under the hood and have someone bump the starter. this can also be done at the pump its self. your call. hope this helps. i have found that most often the simple things are your best bet.

Good luck

Jason

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you had it scanned? If yes, any codes? Offhand, it would appear to be either heat related or electrical. Doubtful if "wired some thing wrong", if so would not have lasted 1 year.

Other than the scan, you may want to try injector cleaner appropriate for your type of engine as well as having a compression check done.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Appreciate your postback and additional information.

    "lean bank 1and lean bank 2" indicates air/fuel mixture, lean referring to more air than the fuel. If the idle is relatively high, then possible vacuum leak. You may want to check intake manifold and spray ether or starting fluid on the intake manifold gasket area. If RPM goes up, then there is a leak. If on the other hand, the engine exhibits a slight hesitation when accelerating, you may want to check the air filter including the airbox itself.

    Cheers.

    If it would have a 2nd fuel pump, then it would be under the vehicle, driver's side, would look like an external filter but with wires.

Replace the fuel pump and fuel filter to correct the problem you are having. Without the proper fuel pressure the engine will not run at all. Hope this will help you. You might check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse or relay in it to make sure you are getting power to fuel pump before you go to the trouble of removing the pump and fuel filter. Hope this will help you.

Fuel Injection Problem I believe.


If the jeep is a 2000 and you have never changed the fuel filter, I would highly suggest you do. You might want to get a full tune up while your at it. Plugs, wires, cap and rotor if it has it. Air filter as well. That's simple maintence and won't hurt to do. Might just make it run like new again.

Try changing the fuel filter but use the repair manual to depressurize the fuel system before attempting the replacement,gas in the eyes is dangerous and painful. I suppose you could let the car sit for 4-5 hours and it will be safe to change out the filter.

2000 dodge dakota ran out of gas. after filling won't crank


I suspect your fuel filter is clogged. This often happens after you run out of gas because your engine sucks up all the gas in the bottom of the tank where dirt and debris have been collecting for years. I recommend changing your fuel filter and if that doesn't fix your problem, try adding some fuel injector cleaner to your gas.
