Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 1989 Ford f150 XLT Lariat. I drove her up to the store and she was only off for about 2 minute when I tried cranking it. It gave a few clicks, then just one loud one and quit. And ever since then all its done is give me one very loud click and nothing happens. All the lights and gauges light up but it doesnt even act like it wants to start. i replaced the starter relay(solenoid) on the fender thats mounted by the battery and I'm still having the same problem, and suggestions?

Have you checked the battery? That's what it sounds like to me. Classic symptoms. You battery has enough juice for the accessories but a LOT is required to crank the engine. If your battery is weak it won't start. Try jumping it, see if it starts. If so, you need a new battery.

I have a 1989 Ford f150 drive for about 30 minutes it dies out or stop and want crank for about an hour


I would unplug the gas cap when it stalls; if you hear a hissing sound, change the gas cap, because it builds up a vacuum in the tank.

Check all wires and switch used to wire the push button ignition. Make sure none have melted due to the stress from hard starting in cold weather. If a thick enough guage of wire was not used it will get hot and could melt.
