Question about 1998 Ford Expedition
It has the 4.6l. 127,000 miles on it. very well maintained. its getting spark from all the plugs. as good compression, and 36 to 40 psi of gas at the fuel rails when cranking. starts right up when starting fluid is spray into the intake. as soon as it burns off it dies. makes me believe the injectors are not opening. so i replace the crank position sensor. it fired right up. ran great all days. next morning the best it would do is idle for about 2 seconds and die. does that a couple of times and wont even idle at all. i then thought it has a short in the connection. got a new connector for the CPS with about an eight pigtail. installed it. fired right up. after about 45mins of driving and 5 stop and starts. on the 6 time i shut off the engine. it would start for 2 seconds and die. now im lost. figured id ask for advice before dumping more money into something that isnt working.
Try getting fuel injector's cleaned maybe there blocked or even one of them.

First of all its not good to spray starting fluid into the intake,its got a plastic "LOWER"intake and it can blow apart and **** too much air through it.Next reset the computer and it can be done by un-hooking the battery cable for a few minutes and if this works and runs for a while and does this again,then reset the computer again.If it does it again then maybe replace the computer..Then also check the fuel pump,it may sound like its working but it could have gotten hot and the plastic gear on the end may not be pushing fuel through when it runs for a while.
