Question about 1989 Ford F 250

1 Answer

85 Ford 460 pickup stalls

My 85 Ford 460 starts and runs for about 30 sec then stalls. I leave the key on and wait a few sec and it runs for another 30 sec. or so. I've replaced the fuel pump in the midship tank and I can hear the tank selector moving when I flip the switch. I've replaced fuel filter. Not sure what to do next.

The anti-theft alarm keeps coming on after the car has been parked and locked. How can I deactivate it. I have double checked evrything is properly closed and locked. It has been an intermittent fault...

you can leave it unlocked,as the immobiliser will take care of any potential thief, as if you dont have the actual key,you cannot start the car.the key is coded to the actual car and can never be far as the alarm is concerned,try this,put the key into the drivers door and unlock/hold the key over for 30 secs,the windows will go down,then lock/hold the key over,the windows will go up.wait 30 secs,then press/hold the unlock button on the remote for 30 secs,you have just reset the immobiliser......

you need to reset the alarm/immobiliser system...put key in drivers door and unlock/hold key over,windows will go down,wait 30 secs.
then,lock/hold key over ,windows will go up,wait 30 secs then press/hold unlock button on remote to reset system.(if you have,nt got a remote,you will HAVE to buy one)and make sure you have newish batteries in remote.
you can buy a "superchip" for this car @volkstuning,goes like stink....

89 F350 w/460 stalls when heats up

If fuel delivery isn't the issue then check fire. Fords of this era are famous for ignition modules acting goofy with heat. Works nice in the cold not so nice in the heat. a Panda Bear. Change your module and you'll be off and running.
