BA Falcon wont start

Engine wont start. Its cranking over easily and sounds like it wants to start on 3 cylinders but just cant get there. There is a smell of fuel. This happened a while ago and mechanic could not work it out. He changed plugs and leads however this did nothing. He got it going in the end but does not know how. I have just tried pouring hot water over the ECU. But to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

next time it wont start, pour hot water over ecu, if it starts replace ecu, you will need a scanner to reset as it will go into theft mode when you fit new ecu, beware that this is a common fault and you can buy 2nd hand faulty computers.

Why my 2005 ba ford falcon wont start?


Its either no spark or no gas. Remove the fuel line and carefully crank it over..are you getting any fuel? If not possibly clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pump. If yes, are the spark plugs firing. Remove number one plug lead hold close to any metal surface on engine, crank over ..spark there..strong or weak spark? No spark check coil and associated parts.

I just changed the spark plugs in my 2004 Ford BA Falcon and now it wont start!


Sounds like you have crossed the spark plug wires...(wrong firing order:) Check with the store where you purchased the new plugs...they should be able to provide the correct firing order...also you must locate cylinder #1 to begin...and confirm the pattern of the firing order...sounds harder than it is...Hope this helps.
