Question about Ford F-100

1 Answer

Starting Problem Just bought a 1977 Ford F100 with a 351M Engine. Apparently been sitting for a while. When I tried to start it, the engine turned over and seemed to get stuck turning over and over even when I turned the key off and removed it. Finally had to disconnect battery to stop it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you smell gasoline fuel ?? When there's too much fuel, it saturates the spark plugs, preventing ignition. Let it sit for an hour to let spark plugs dry, then it starts OK later. Next time, turn starter without giving any throttle or very small throttle as engine turns. Myself, when my 2006 Dodge Plymouth minivan (sitting in storage) needs to start, I squirt (half second) starting fluid into air filter, close the air filter housing to trap flammable gas from starting fluid, then turn the engine without pressing on throttle. When the engine starts is when I give it a little throttle to bring up the RPM to 2,000 until it idles on its own without stalling from cold engine.

My 2001 ford mustang v6 engine will not start due to not being turned on or driven in over a month. How can this be fixed?


Is the engine turning over? Are the dash lights coming on when key is turn on? If engine is turning over and lights are coming on the battery is good. If not the battery is dead. So once engine is turning over and car not starting try pouring just a little fuel inside the fuel bowl and try starting the car. Or get some starting fuel.

1991 Miata Starting problem


find the filter pull it off and clean it if u cant clean it replace it they usally are cheap on older vehicles but with the filter off turn the car have someone turn the car to the on position so the pump is pumping and see how good it is coming out of the line if not very good then your gas tank line to the fuel filter is clogged but if its fine check the next fuel line the one on the fuel rail there is a bolt on the fuel rail crack it open and have someone turn the key if gas comes out then you are getting fuel and that would mean your injectors are bad

I think i might have run out of gas and its below freezing


Try putting gas in, turn the ignition on, not starting. Let it sit for 1 minute. Turn the switch back off, then try to bump the engine over a couple off times. Now try to start engine ,but don't hold the switch over more than 10 sec. repeat 3-4 times. Why do you think it's out of gas?

03 ford powerstroke fuel lk. on top of engine, behind the fuel filter housing,fuel sits on top of valley area. can't see any lk. must be slow. cleaned area, can't see any lk.


It ended up being the fuel filter housing drain / shut-off valve. waited for the engine to cool overnight/started engine & rechecked immediatly before engine started warming up & it leaked immediatly. It apparently was a cold only leak. thanks for your attention..

Back windows won't operate


For electric windows it can be common for a wire to get cut. At the driver door hinges. Inside the rubber boot where the wires pass from the driver door to the car body. Their is a lot of wires stuffed inside their. it can be a little bit of a pain to squeeze your hand in between the door and the body to look at the wires.

Ford Bronco II 2.9L V6 engine starting trouble


You should try checking the fuel pressure to see if it too low. If the pump sat for a long time like that and then was turned on for awhile it may have bought the farm. It may still be pumping, but just not enough. Try givng it a compression check as well just to see if it has any problems there.
