97 f-150 wont start sometimes when hot

At the end of last summer my 97 ford f-150 got to where it wouldn't restart sometimes on hot days after i had driven it until the engine had cooled (15 mins. to 2 hrs.). I had no issues with this all winter, but today the temp is up again and i killed it at the post office, came back out and it would not fire up for a half hour. It turns over just wont fire.

Check for spark. Also listen for the fuel pump to kick on or spray starting fluid in the throttle body to see if it starts. If the fuel pump isn't kicking on then its your fuel pump and its located in the tank

98 Ford F150 w/4.6l Wont start. Hear fuel pump click. Have pressure on fuel rail. Pulled #1 plug from head and plugged back into wire. Grounded plug and cranked. No spark. Changed wires 4 and 7 four days...

have diagnostic codes checked to see if you have a cam or crank sensor fault. make sure fuel pressure is at the required pressure, just testing to see if you have fuel at the valve is not enough. replace all spark plug wires. if you replaced two then all are just as old and even when they "look good" does not qualify as "they are good". Replace coil pack. start up drive away happy

My 1994 ford f-150 heater core has been replace twice already since the end of last summer, and started leaking again yesterday! is this a common issue? And is there a different solution besides putting in...

Heater cores are a common issue on the trucks. I do not rememeber the after market brand recommended that lasts longer, but if you can find a local weld/braze shop maybe they can put material on it that will not leak. Sometimes the solder joints just dont do well in these systems.

I have a 1995 ford f150, 302 automatic. Sometimes it starts, sometimes it doesn't. I was driving it last week when it stalled while driving. I let it sit for 15 minutes then it restarted and I drove it...

theres a relay under dash on drivers side that causes that when relay gets hot it wont start but it cools off it will start and it will do it worse in the summer

Ford ka heater blows hot air all the time

Your problem is a faulty heater control valve. The design used on these vehicles allows for hot water to flow constantly and compete with the evaporator as there is no blender door. You have to replace the valve and possibly the control head. Meanwhile, you can bypass the valve to have cold air

if your caar is a v-6 or 6 cylinder motor you might have a injector shorting when hot this is very coming on those cars and very very hard to find from mechanics i'm a ase certified tecnichian and had found this as coming problem on this cars
you can ask to a mechanic to check the resistance on the injectors or when it happens again unplug one by one and see if car runs again if it does then replace all the injectors
because shops will keep trowing parts and labor trying to guess
