SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

Hello, there are several things as likely to cause this problem, either spark or fuel.

The glowplugs are needed to make a Cold engine start. You can take a testlight to the glowplug wire of several cylinders and it should light when the engine is put to the Run position. The glowplugs get their power from a Coldstart Timer and it may have an additional relay.

The Coldstart Timer is the part which clicks and makes the lights dim when it is cycling. It also controls the dash indicator and makes the dash light work when the glowplugs are ready. The timer changes the amount of time it cycles according to outside and engine temperature. If you have noticed the "Ready" light vary its timing, the timer is working.

Say you have no spark at the glowplug wire, work backwards to the Coldstart timer and see if it is getting power. Power in, none out, bad timer. No power in, work backwards for a Relay or fuse.

Now if you have power at the glowplug, remove several and test them with Battery jumper cables. Put the NEG on the base and touch the POS to the stem. You can melt them if you overdo it. The longer it takes for the glowplug to glow, the worse it is. Once you find a good glower all tests are relative to the good one.

Fuel problem. If the glowplugs test out, check the fuel. Long start times can mean the fuel drained back to the tank and has to be pulled all the way up front. You can unscrew your fuel filter and see if it is topped off or empty. Then you need to test the lines from the fuel filter back.

It is also possible an internal Solenoid in the Injector pump is sticking. A light tap before starting can indicate this problem if it starts better after tapping the pump.

Thats about it. I hope you find my Solution useful.

Riding along it just shut off...when I try starting it again the engine will not turn over...but when I jump start it, it start right up ....1989 Nissan pick up truck


NO CRANK, it does NOT CRANK,
the starters is dead, slow .
this is a no crank, the job of the starter.
if it cant crank, it surely can never start, unless push started.
but the jumper starting is the easy way to replace the battery
so you did.

jump starts. so the battery is bad. in car.
end story.
there is one exception bad battery cables.
if you jumpted to the battery lugs, then the battery is bad
if you connected the minus jump clip to the car body
then the battery minus cable was bypass. and could be bad.
same with plus but i bet you didnt to funny things with PLUS.

The smaller battery could be over charging unless picked up by the voltage regulator, and heat is a slow killer. Cars require different amps to start. The main thing to look at is the Cold Cranking Amps. Which is the amps being put out at 0F or -18c. As for the antifreeze it wouldnt hurt to test is for freezing point and boiling point which are majour factors. The worst could be antifreeze in the oil.

Might be two problems, but one is your igniter in the distributor. The second, the idling problem is either your throttle position sensor, or a vacuum leak. With the engine running , check all hoses for leaks by wiggling them around, while listening for a hissing. Check intake bolts for tightness.
