Question about 2005 Ford F 250 Super Duty

Open Question

Truck randomly won't start

Three times in the last month the truck would not start. Each time was after driving for about an hour around town. the truck will crank, but will not turn over. Just before it happened the third time it sounded like it was going to stop running in the intersection. I would push the pedal to the floor but the engine would not engage for several seconds, then would run very rough. The first two times, I was able to start it after approx. 20 minutes and several tries. the last time I had it towed to the dealership. It sat overnight, and when checked the next day, of course everything is working perfectly. Dealer says they cant help me because everything is working fine.

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

SOURCE: F350 don't start

Check to see if you are sucking air on the inlet side of charge pump, Disconect feed side of charge pump, fabricate a hose to place in a clear container to check for good clear flow.Hope this helps.

I would try replacing the wiper arm itself and also make sure that there is no binds in the motor or rubbing anything inside the door

SOURCE: escape will not go above 60mph and will not downshift w/gas pedal

It could very well be a restriction in the exhaust like a stopped up cat converter. I doubt if it is a torque converter,that may make it slow to get to speed but shouldn't effect hwy speeds.
You can check this vehicle for an exhaust restriction very easy by going to the DPFE sensor and measuring exhaust back pressure with a vacuum/pressure gage. It will be either silver or black in color will have 2 rubber hoses hooked to it going down to metal tubes that hook into the exhaust.It will have a 3 wire connector with the color of the wires being BN/WH,BN/LG,OG. Disconnect one of the rubber hoses from the sensor and hook the vacuum/pressure gage into the hose.You should have less than 1 psi at idle,then press accel to wide open throttle and take a reading,it should be no higher than 3-4 psi. Anything more is an exhaust restriction.

Vehicle over heated now battery is dead


When the GMC overheats it goes into limp home mode. This is why the truck was running rough. The computer only allows the engine to run on three cylinders at a time, to allow the vehicle to continue driving without damage to the engine. If the temperature continues to increase then the computer will stop the engine from running at all. One gallon of fluid is plenty to allow the truck to overheat. As far as the battery it sounds like you need to have it charged. Get a load test on the battery and replace it if needed. Dont forget to check the alternator while your at it. A bad charging system could be the cause of a dead battery.

1998 Buick Skylark Theft System light on won't start. I have no chip in my key, and it starts every time for months than randomly it won't start for a day or week.


Right around 98 GM starting using Passlock antitheft instead of the old Vats system which had the visible chip in the key. Your system most likely has a transponder in the key head. Same idea, just a newer system. Go to this link. It explains the problem along with a few ways you can fix it yourself with out having to buy multiple parts that may not be broken.

Iwill drive for about an hour and shuts down


One of 2 things;

Fuel pump is going out - does driving conditions change the length of time?

Computer over heating - make sure the computer if free of any obstructions and air can flow freely around it. if clear then replace the computer

Accent 2001 won't start after driving for only 100km


you may want to see if your catalitic converter is clogged up. I had a car that had that problem, when you drove too much it would die and wouldn't start for a long time after that. I had the converter replaced and now it drives just fine. May not be the same problem but it could be. and most muffler shops will check for a small fee if not for free.
