Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

After sitting for a month the F-550 Ford motor in my motorhome won't even turn over. I replaced the battery a few months prior and have checked it and it has a charge. The last time I started it there was no problems and I ran it for a half hour or so. Since then nothing has been done to it. What could be causing it to not start.

I'd be tempted to have fuel pressure checked, if at all possible, when it quits. If nothing else, carry a can of quickstart with you, and when it quits, remove air intake at throttle body inlet, and open throttle plate and give a good squirt of quick start, then try to start it. If it starts for a second or 2, then you know you have spark, but no fuel. I've seen fuel pumps work good while cool, and cut -out when it gets hot. Then sit and let pump cool off for 20 minutes or so, then pump up to pressure again and away we go, until it gets hot again. You might also find if you park in the shade, you'll get further, or even on a full tank. Another good idea would be to change fuel filter in case fuel pump is working too hard pushing fuel through a plugged filter, and causing low fuel pressure.

I hope this helps. I had a problem on a couple of different Mitsubishi's where the battery went dead and all the major components were good. No warning lights came on. Check the fuse block . Not the standard fuses but the specialty fuses, the block fuses. Look at them carefully with a flashlight.Test them with voltage meter if necessary. Make sure that one is not blown. With any luck a dollar fuse will turn everything back on.

Starter making whirring noise.


When you say it won't start you mean it won't crank, right ?

If you have a duralast starter from auto zone, that may be the problem.
Aftermarket brand starters and alternators can be lemons sometimes.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter with the key in the on and start positions. Also check the ground connections.
Its possible the starter is not getting full battery voltage for some reason.

Sounds like a discharged battery. I'd recommend checking charging system. You could have a bad alternator or a broken connection. With luck - the latter.

It might be your anti-theft alarm system. When the car doesn't start, is there a ticking sound inside the car? If so, hit the unlock button a few times on your keyless entry remote, until the ticking stops, then try to start the car. Hopefully this helps.

Have a 1996 Taurus wagon--dead battery--got brand new battery and connected it properly and car barely turns over and wont turn enough to start--car was sitting for about three months


Was the battery checked before it was sold to you? Batteries will lose their charge over a period of time even when not hooked up. If you have a voltmeter it should read 12.8 volts on a fully charged battery.
Have you tried to boost the car with cables?
I suspect if the car was working OK 3 months ago it should start. Which leads me to suggest an undercharged battery.
