Question about 1989 Ford F 150
It has spark but it wont start . it turns over but trys to start i was driving down the road about 50 after filling up a few days prior and the truck just died going down the road, it seemed like it ran out of gas...i have spark, fuel, but how do i tell if the injectors are working? i sprayed ether into the throttle body and it ran for a second and died, could t be the injectors?
If this is a 1980 F150, emissionwiz is correct in saying it has a carburetor, if your engine runs on ether, you do not have fuel supply to the engine. Check fuel delivery at the front of carburetor, should be a line screwed into the carb, may be connected by a rubber hose, remove this line and crank engine, look to see fuel is gushing out of the line, if no fuel the pump is bad, check fuel lines back to pump for leaks, replace leaking lines if necessary. If you get fuel then your float inside the carb is stuck, and the carb will need some attention, hope this helps, let me know
