Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew
This is whats going on, It was taking longer to start so I changed the fuel filter. has 39,000 miles on it. No go!. Next a neighbor said oh its a ford starter it dragging,, changed starter.no go!. Noticed when I turn the key on for about 5 second then start (like a deisel) it fires right up. Next thing I was going to check is the psi on the fuel system. Any other ideas?
Hi again, I wanted to follow up on the request I made for the current draw. Glad its working for you. In one of my problems last week an F150 would do what you describe only in extreme cold and had about the same results. A dealer told her there was a known problem with one of the wires going to the starter, but I got no other details. The only thing I would guess at would be a dissimilar metal connection or fusible link that my be affected by the cold. You may have inadvertently touched on that connection when inserting your ammeter in the circuit. Again, Ya gotta love long distance troubleshooting! I think you were very through in your approach, hope it continues to work for you! Please rate my response. Thanks!
