Question about 2003 Ford Econoline Cutaway
I checked relaced fuel relay , checked control fuse ,fuel pump fuse,all ok, it seems like no gas , how can i check to see if it is the fuel pump ? or how and where is the nutral switch ?
Check the fuel pressure. On the bright metal fuel rack/line on top of the engine there is a caped nipple to check fuel pressure. IF you don't have a fuel pressure gauge then "I don't suggest" sticking something in the valve to see if fuel spits out. When attaching the gauge and the engine is off there might be some pressure but when the key is turned on (don't start engine) the pressure should rise to 30-40 psi (this changes from make to make). Sticking something in the valve might show you there is a jump in pressure but not the way it should be done. Also you can check for noise from the fuel pump. Most all pumps can be heard especially if you place your ear near the underside where the gas tank is (as most vehicles today have the pump in the tank). Have someone turn the key all the way on but do not start it. You should hear a brief buzz/hiss of the pump and then it will shut off. If you don't hear anything try a solid blow with the side of your fist to the bottom of the fuel tank at the same time as the key is being turned on. This has, in many occasions, brought the pump back to life (if only for a few seconds). I actually was able to get someone their home by doing this but by no means is this a fix. The neutral safety switch is on the selector shaft on the transmission. Look for two sets of wires, one for neutral switch and the other for reverse lights.
