Question about 1988 Ford F 150

2 Answers

My friends 88 F150 starts up great and idles great, but after driving for a very short time it shuts down as if its out of gas. He has had the fuel pump, filter, and lines replaced. He has also had new engine wiring harness, plugs, and wires installed since the problem began. Hope someone can give us a clue as to what the problem might be.

Have a 2005 f150 4.6 that stalls can it be the fuel pump is weak


Could be a fuel pressure regulator not working. Thus ecu complaining about fuel Pressure. probably not enough because the regulator is worn and leaking down so will not maintain the proper pressure. You will need to google the make model and fuel pressure regulator to find it's location or library and repair manual. Otherwise, you need to measure the pressure and find the spec for the required fuel pressure. Probably somewhere around 120PSI
