Question about Ford F

1 Answer

Hi. i have a 94(M) ford transit diesel which hasnt wanted to start for past 6 months. but today i found a snapped cable from something behind my throttle assembly (the bracket that the cable pulls) so i jammed the thing that the cables snapped from on temporarily and it fired up first time!! the part is not part of the throttle as the van still revs fine once started but was thinking it may be some kind of choke or something although it doesnt have a manual choke and i dont think an automatic one would have a cable.. sorry if its not the best description but if you can help in any way it would be much appreciated.. thanks.

IF THE CABLE GOES TO THE AIR BOX CHECK IF IT PULLS THE FLAP IN THE BARELL, IF IT DOES THAT IS A MANUAL CHOKE AND NEED TO BE USED TO START THE MOTOR, BUT AS IT IS DIESEL U PROBERLY HAVE PRE HEATERS IN THE HEAD WHICH DO NOT WORK HENCE WILL NOT GET THE FUEL HOT TO START. MAYBE THIS IS A ELECTRICAL FAULT AS THEY SHOULD WORK ON THE KEY, TURN TO IGN POSITION AND LEAVE FOR 10 SECONDS, THEN CRANK ENGINE, USE A METER TO SEE IF POWER IS GETTING TO THEM, THEY HAVE A CABLE LINKING THEM TO THE RELAY THAT RUNS THEM

Ford transit


It wont start unless you do something we call bleed. There is a small screw on the side of the injector pump you have to pull those and pump the lift pump/fuel pump untill all the air leaves the pump the close them and start.

I think it is i will probably have to pull the timing belt, it sounds like it probably skipped due to the serpentine belt cords wrapped around something under the timing belt cover, any other suggestions on alternate causes before I start pulling the brand new timing belt?12

2002 F-250 7.3 l diesel leaking fuel at the fuel filter


Running Bio-Diesel should not be a problem, although BD is a great solvent that will dissolve petroleum desposits left behind by regular diesel. I suspect that the gaskets on the fuel drain valve are worn out and leaking fuel. Most of the time the whole valve is replaced, but I have seen only the two o-rings for sale on the internet. It is easier to repair by laying on your front side on a large pillow. If that does not work, come back to fixya and we will help you again.
