Question about 2005 Ford F 350 Super Duty

1 Answer

Injectors not getting electrical power and not releasing fuel into the cylinders, hence no engine start

I badly need the complete wiring schematic for my 2005 ford f350 Super Duty 6.0L. I have done all troubleshooting I can and even fitted new pump.Serviced all filters, but still wont start.The injectors are not introducing fuel into the cylinders.Crank or turns over fine, but their is no fuel getting into the cylinders, oil pressure is good.How do I get power to the injectors to get them to introduce fuel?They all seem completely isolated.How I do I reset computer without the WDS or IDS? Please help, If I can get a wiring schematic maybe I will be able to see the place where the power to the injectors is getting cut off.After tests and mesaures numerous time we have found that the injectors are not getting any electrical power? Help Herman Very Urgent! Truck has been down since 4th January and Its here in zimbabwe ,Africa and the nearest place for warranty is 1600miles away and I cannot tow that vehicle that far

    They buzz, and I have new oil in the sump and the quantity is correct also.I have gone through the oil pressure route and verified that I have correct oil pressure.When the engine is turning over the presure gage goes up above 50% and drops after about four seconds

  • linecrosser May 11, 2009

    maybe thats where im gettin confused, can you please give me the procedure to check the high pressure system,because I thought the oil system was just one .Please walk me through what I need to do to check the high pressure oil system.Or better still please explain the  difference between the two systems and how to check them and how to correct them

    I do not have access to a scan tool and also the special adaptor you mentioned that goes in where the oil pressure sensor is.What causes the oil pressure to drop besides oil leaks?

    do you have access to a scan tool? you can monitor the oil pressure sensor. there is a special adapter the goes in where the pressure sensor is in the pass side valve cover to test the pressure. The way it works- the low pressure base oil system that lubricates the engine also feed the high pressure system- the high pressure system needs a min of 600psi to fire the injectors

    did you check the low oil pressure or the high pressure system?

  • warlock61

    do the injectors buzz when the key is first turned on?

    the injectors require oil pressure to open, you might have an oil pressure concern not an electrical concern

All pre 2008 powerstrokes use oil pressure supplied by a High Pressure Oil Pump(HPOP)to activate a plunger setup in the injector to inject fuel into the cylinders at 21 PSI. More than likely some of the HPOP components need to be replaced- i.e. valve, regulator, seal, feed tube...or the pump itself. I've replaced seals on these units since 2003, when Ford wanted to replace the pump and injectors. Did you notice a gradual increase in hard starting conditions? Do you have any visable oil leaks? Did you run the crankcase oil level down to below the add mark recently? All of these could be a factor. Ford wont tell you anything about a price because they dont like to do that before they do a diagnostic check on it and determine exactly how much needs to be fixed. Test alone will run around 100 buxs. If you are within warranty requisites then it wont matter and you likely wont be charged anything. If they crack into it have em fix as much as you can while theyre in there, because after warranty is out you are looking at a 3000 dollar repair bill from your friendly Ford dealer. Good luck...i hope this helps.

Car idles rough, sometimes dies in reverse, it's worse in cold.

A cylinder that doesn't fire could be 1 of 3 things: no spark, no gas, or no compression.
Sure, it could be a bad injector, or clogged, but you should do some tests before buying an expensive new injector. You should first check the injector circuit on #2 cylinder. It's a pretty simple circuit, really. Each injector has 2 wires, a power wire and a ground wire. The power wire is one wire, which is spliced to each injector, and has battery voltage on it anytime the ignition switch is on or in "run". Each injector's ground wire is a separate wire going into the computer. When the computer internally grounds for a split second that injector's circuit, the injector sprays fuel out a tiny opening, a nozzle. You can check the circuit for #2, both the power wire and the ground side of the circuit with a test light. Post back and ask, if you want me to explain.
You also might want to check the compression in #2, just to assure you there is no mechanical problem causing a loss of compression in that cylinder.

How to install a fuel injector on a 2002 jeep liberty 3.7

so that mean the old one is all ready removed.?
or did you mean all steps in the fsm for INJECTOR.
the steps are the same on all EFI fuel rail injectors.
you could google that or you tube it or read the FSM.

hide call keys from step 2 on, or very bad things can happen.
(wife or kids no aware of danger)
ill just cover the (basics)
1: per FSM , depressurize the system, in can be at 60PSI
parked. so avoid fuel in eyes, or a fire. we do that first.
gain access to rail under failure. (RUF) (no barking)
2: remove injector X , wire plug. (failing)
3: then detach the injector rail clamps the both rails off as one....
injector are all now loose, to pull off.
4: add new seals to new injector, and install in reverse order.

that's it, only the gain access , varies,... mostly.

last depressure steps:
run engine,
remove fuel pump relay, engine stalls. key off, hide keys

next tje FSM words (just the OFF section)

  1. Remove fuel tank filler tube cap.
  2. Perform Fuel System Pressure Release Procedure.
  3. Remove negative battery cable at battery.
  4. Remove air duct at throttle body air box.
  5. Remove air box at throttle body.
  6. Disconnect fuel line latch clip and fuel line at fuel rail. A special tool will be necessary for fuel line disconnection.
  7. Remove necessary vacuum lines at throttle body.
  8. Disconnect electrical connectors at all 6 fuel injectors. Push red colored slider away from injector. While pushing slider, depress tab and remove connector from injector. The factory fuel injection wiring harness is numerically tagged (INJ 1, INJ 2, etc.) for injector position identification. If harness is not tagged, note wiring location before removal.
  9. Disconnect electrical connectors at throttle body sensors.
  10. Remove 6 ignition coils.
  11. Remove 4 fuel rail mounting bolts.
  12. Gently rock and pull left side of fuel rail until fuel injectors just start to clear machined holes in cylinder head. Gently rock and pull right side of rail until injectors just start to clear cylinder head holes. Repeat this procedure (left/right) until all injectors have cleared cylinder head holes.
  13. Remove fuel rail (with injectors attached) from engine.
end expert.
login and read all steps. that be best , then ask questions?

I have a 1992 acura legend it's been sitting up for about three years replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, spark plugs, injector resistor, ran compression check on all cyl. all above 150 psi. swapped ign....

Put a meter on the firing and non firing side on the injectors and see if the reading is the same. Sometimes a whole bank of injectors loose the pulse to inject. If this is what is going on you need to check all the fuses, and look for wiring harness grounds on the engine near the injectors. A bad connection, or a bad fuse can shut down one side of the engine. It is also possible the engine computer has lost a driver, and is bad, this also can shut down a bank of injectors. Most of the time problems like this are caused by bad connections. If a quick check of these mentioned items doesn't help then get a good service manual with a wiring schematic in it and start checking out the wires to see if there is a break in the wires.

The engine on my sons 91 Mazda Miata is running ruff. Like on 3 cylinders. If I pull the spark plug wire on the #1 cylinder the engine runs the same. If I pull the spark plug wires on the #2,3, or 4...

You have done a great test but If I assk you to do a swap of the Ist cylinder plug and injector with one from the 3rd , we can come to a conclusion before we can change the full set of plugs and injectors for a good performance.( only if the mileage is time enough to do the change)
If you have confirmed with the spark and the fuel ( hope the fuel pressure is good and the pump calibrated , even though this is not relevant) please also check the wires to the first plug and the fuel line to the first injector.
I hope there is no issues in the pump finally for not releasing enough fuel to the first.( Check for presence of fuel pressure in this line)
I am sure you are confident enough to get to the fault .
Hope you credit me if this helps a bit. Good day

The electric fuelinjecter isn't pumping gas,car won't start.

Are you sure it's an electric fuel injector or the fuel pump that isn't pumping gas.

The Nothstar Engine has an injector for each cylinder, and injectors don't generally pump, they just release pressure built up in the fuel rail.

The relay, wiring, or fuel pump can be at fault. Check the fuse for it, to start.

Took my car to have check engine light checked. It said misfire cylinder 2. I replaced the spark plug wires and spark plugs and it still says misfire cylinder 2. What is the next step? Thanks Steve

In modern cars so much can go wrong to indicate an issue and a computer in the car can get confused as to what is really occurring. In most cars a misfire indicates either an incorrect firing order, shorted wires, bad plugs, or bad coil. Since you have replaced the wires and plugs we can rule those out. Im also assuming after the second engine code you pulled #2 plug and made sure it wasnt fouled with oil, was gapped correctly, and reinserted. To produce a sufficient spark for combustion the alternator sends power to a "Coil" which is in reality a storage point that then sends an amplified electrical current down the spark plug wire to the cylinder to fire the plug. If the car is truly misfiring you will notice a rough idle, fluctuating RPM's, and lack of acceleration. If you are experiencing any of these I would look at replacing the coil. If you arent experiencing any of these I would have the code cleared again and complete one drive cycle 100 miles and then have codes read again. If you still get a Misfire error some other causes known to occur with Rio's are fuel filter issues, gas caps, and fuel injector issues. Although rare, these can cause issues with the cars fuel delivery and emissions which can confuse the sensor in the ECU. I would try injector cleaner, replace the fuel filter, and gas cap . If funds are an issue then based on symptoms I would start with injector cleaner first $3, Filter $12, Gas cap $12, Coil $48 to $200+

P0308 cylinder 8 misfire detected? How to repair?

Fuel injector cleaner commonly has a low success rate, and will not help if it's more than one cylinder that is missfiring. The fact that you have a "rattle" noise, leads me to beleive the engine is not receiving fuel on one or more cylidners. If it is all the cylinders, than the fuel pump may be the culprit, or the fuel pump circuit. But if only one cylidner is missfiring than it is a possibly an injector. A code P0300 refers to all cylinder missfires, and any code between P0301-P0308 distinugiushes a particular cylinder.

1- a general electrical tune-up (spark plugs, wire set, cap & rotor) is a basic start to cure this issue. Wiggle the dist shaft while you are in there, if you have one.
2- Then a good carbon cleaning / throttle-body cleaning.
3- Vacuum leaks at any of the hoses that connect to the Intake manifold; especially the MAP sensor connection.
4- If that does not help then the O2 sensor could be bad or drifting.
5- Funky coil/coil-packs
6- Theoretically a microsecond glitch in either the cam or crank shaft sensors would cause this, but I am not aware of this as a typical cause.
7- Lastly a funky PCM but again it is not common for this to cause miss-firing.

Note for the V8 then also:
a) bad erg valve (this dilutes the combustion gases and hence raises the combustion temp
b) a leaky plenum/Intake manifold gasket. Leaking Intake gasket symptoms

Also can check the TSB 18-48-98 Ignition System Cross Fire/Secondary Ignition Wire Induction (Complete Version )

Hope help with this (remember rated this). Good luck and have a nice day.

Mechanical failure

possible 1 or more fuel injectors thing to do is actually ohm injector windings and look for 22 ohms(+ or -) of resistance.These fail sometimes as a result of fuel quality especially pertaining to alcohol content in fuel ...anything near or past 10% present in fuel can actuall degrogate the electrical windings inside the injector and causing them not to function ,therefore not providing fuel to its cylinder hence cylinder mis fire missing and extreme lack of power...good luck
