SOURCE: 1997 ford explorer V8 5.0 engine

P1405-Differential Pressure Feedback Electronic (DPFE) sensor upstream hose off or plugged - or cracked.

I believe it is on the driver's side of engine about half-way down. also, check all other hoses for damage

SOURCE: engine code p0307 cylinder #7 misfire

It could be carbon deposits on valve seats keeping valves from totally closing. You can try getting you a can of motorcraft PM3 top end engine cleaner and get engine up to operating temp then remove one of the small vacuum lines from the intake and draw the contents of the can slowly into the engine.After you have drawn in the contents shut engine off and let it soak for about 45 minutes then crank it back up and let it run until it clears. Now it will smoke like a forrest fire while you are doing this so don't be alarmed,just tell the neighbors you are spraying for mosqitos.This may cure the problem. If not you may be looking at a valve job.
This can be verified with a compression test if this is what is causing it.

SOURCE: ford f-150 will crank but not start or stay running

Look on the throttle body for a little cylinder with an electrical connector on it. Use the handle of screwdriver to give that a few whacks while someone starts the engine after it starts, give a few more whacks. Engine running now? Replace the Intake Air Control motor. or IAC.

SOURCE: 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

Why is my 2002 Ford Explorer V8 cranks but won't start?


No spark or no gas. Are you sure the gas gauge acurrate? When you turn the ignition key from Off to Run, but not all the way to start, listen carefully for the sound of the fuel pump. If you don't hear anything, check the fuse. If the fuse is good the pump may be bad.

Remove a spark plug wire and hold the metal end close to [but not touching!] a metal ground [use a pair of insulated pliers to keep from possibly getting shocked. Have a helper crank the engine. If you see a spark, the ignition is probably ok, although that's not 100% certain, as the timing or dwell angle could still be off.

Good luck!

1997 f 150 5.4 v8 truck turned over for about 2 sec. then died... wouldnt start... cranked for a little bit. had power, still tried jumping. its dead, on a charger now, but makes a heavy metal clunk...


First of all have your battery tested to make sure its in good condition. Take a look underneath at the starter and make sure all the bolts are tight and secured. You may end up replacing the starter

I have a 06 ford f150 with the triton 4.6L v8 I need to know if it is the 3v or not any visual clues would be helpful


Unless I am missing the product years, the 3V 4.6 V8 was not in the F-150 until the 2009 and newer MY F-150s. Up to 2009, the 4.6 L v8 was the 2 V design that was used from 1997 to 2008.

The 3 valve 4.6L V-8 started in the 2005 Mustang and then was introduced to other models.
