Run fault codes to find which sensor is faulty --check for MAP/MAF sensor problems.

It could be the mass air flow sensor. Its mounted to the side of the air cleaner. Just unplug the electrical connection to bypass the unit. If this is the problem the vehicle should run smoothly.

SOURCE: E85 fuel in a regular gas tank

Siphon out as much of the E85 as you can and fill the tank with good gasoline and drive it like you stole it for a while. You can't drain a tank without removing it and the fuel filter isn't going to catch anything in the E85. This is what I would do anyway.

SOURCE: my truck acts like it is starving for gas

Hi,
Replace the fuel filter as the fist action. Often this is charged for - but not done on a service, and if blocked will starve the engine. Just done mine after 3 years - would not believe the cr@p that was in it.

Try again.

If not much difference, check the fuel pump in the tank, and any cables to it.
If this fails, the engine needs to **** the fuel more - and can lead to starvation problems too.

Change the air filter every year, as this is cheap and will give you better MPG anyway.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem

If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

SOURCE: 1996 ford f250 truck 4x4 5 speed 460 will not start

Running tank one empty could have picked up **** from the bottom of the tank and clogged the in line filter that feeds the engine. It should be located under the truck on the left inner frame rail around the back of the cab area. Replace it don't try to clean it out it will just clog again. They are not that expensive from the locale parts house. DHR... EX Ford Line Mech

If you have any rubber fuel lines in the fuel system, I would replace them. Over a period of time the insides of the hoses swell up and stop the fuel flow to the engine.

for sure get under truck with someone else inside with a rubber hammer or a block of wood hit the tank in the center and ask the person to crank the engine if it starts yes fuel pump time this is quite often the problem if it doesnt work start new fuses first then fire at the plugs injectors and so on but almost sure 95% fuel pump as well change fuel filter or you may have bad gas but it ran good before and nobody put sugar in the tank

1987 Ecoline van V-8 engine hasn't been started in about 7 years. It ran good before that. What do I have to do first to start it and get it running?


I would change all the fluids and either try dry gas or i would recommend that the gas tank be thoroughly drained and new gas put in the tank.If you have a hard time getting started try to use starter fluid in carburetor or if you have none just use gas. If the vehicle is equipped with fuel injectors locate air filter and follow air duct to engine that is where starter fluid or gasoline will have to be pored to prime the injectors.if it don't start the engine should be tuned up with a major tune up replace all filters ect even if it starts without tune up i would tune it up asap!
