Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

Truck dies I have a 97 ford f-150  5.4 V8 it turns over just fine then dies right after.  But often if I rev it up untill it gets warm it will stay on and work fine.  Never dies onces it starts. Seems to be much worse in colder weather 40-60 F.  Any ideas would be great .  New battery was instaled.

Engine wont rev above 2000rpm


If you have a hih miles truck,it is very possoble you have aclogged cat.Have a muffler shop test pressure in front and behind by drilling small holes,checkin w/gauge,then welding back.This should be free if you replace the cat.

Won't stay running


Have you checked base fuel pressure with a gauge ? Does it have a pump in the tank and also on the frame ?

97' dodge dakota runs fine in idle but when i am driving and come to a stop it dies, or when im at a stop and mash the gas and instantly let off. im getting code p1756 could this be whats causing it?


Right check the engine breather pipes i think their perished and its sucking in air ,forget the tranny codes as this is caused by the idle problem

My 97 ford f250 heavy duty has been idling rough alot lately. when driving, everything seems to be fine. coming to a stop, when i put the clutch in to take it out of gear, the rpm's stay high (around 1500)...


depending on which motor you have it may be a simple fix or you may have a cracked engine head. At a complete stop - turn on your A/C if it dies then I would be thinking cracked head. If it stays running then it is most likely either the TPS throttle sensor or the MAP sensor is very dirty and needs cleaned. You did not say how many miles are on this truck

My 1984 Ford F-150 V8 302 choke is not working?


Your choke should have a spring at the bottom under a little cover with a rod coming up and connecting to the butterfly for the choke. Usually this get a little corroded and sticks, you need to clean the pieces so that they rotate freely and the rod will move up and down. It is adjusted on some models by bending the rod to make it longer or shorter. When you push down the gas pedal for the first time in the morning it should set the choke, test this by opening the throttle while its cold out, once the throttle is opened the choke should close, once the engine is running there is a vacuum operated linkage that should pull it back some, until the engine is warm. Again if this worked before, its probably dirty so a good cleaning is in order. Hope this helps, let me know

1990 Ford F-150 Fuel Pump


yes, fuel pump is inside the tank, replace filter first. then i would test the fuel pressure at the rail, 30 -45 psi at idle. also test pressure regulator. replace pump last (its expensive)
