Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

1 Answer

Driven 50 miles or so, shut the truck off and it will not start

I have driven the truck on a warm day and parked and run my errand, it will start but it will not stay running. I have also have had it where it will not even turn over and I have a one year old five year battery in it. Would love to have a dependable truck on warm weather days...
Is it the catalytic converter?m fuel pump, filter, what?

It sounds almost like 'vapor lock' caused by a fuel line too close to heat which can cause a bubble in the line and engines really don't run well on bubbles. On a fairly modern truck I can't imagine that the static ignition timing is too far advanced but I would be checking that too.
When warm, many vehicles will keep the electric cooling fan running for several minutes to prevent vapor from forming in the lines since the external temperature can climb a good bit right after the engine is turned off.

Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as non-genuine replacement are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units. Look for position sensor with intermittent fault. Check all wire connectors for loose or dirty.

If car is parked for 45min running will it restart?
Most likely you have a fuel pump getting hot & shutting down cools off & then will restart. The fuel pump relay could also do this.

Problem when only when it's hot outside


This is a symptom of a bad coil. The car will generally idle well, and performance will deteriorate when the car (and the coil pack)warms up.
