There is 2 injectors on your truck and one is the start injector and its job is to inject a blast of fuel into the intake when the key is turned on. that injector is either faulty, clogged, or not getting any power.

1989 Ford f150 4x4 6cl When I go to start the truck it will start then I must keep pumping the gas peddle to keep it running if I let off it will die. Even when it is running it runs very rough


Check your fuel pressure to seeif it is high enough. Possible fuel pump or filter which some of those trucks could have up to three fuel pumps, one in each gas tank and a pump along the frame also. Could also be a vacuum leak or a suction leak at the intake or throttle body. Another possibility could be throttle positioning sensor. An easy way to check for a fuel related problem is to lightly spray carb cleaner onto throttle body while trying to start and see if it will continue running on that. If it does then you have a fuel problem. Use carb cleaner safe for fuel injection systems.

1989 silverado idles at high idles sometimes then i can shut it off and turn it right back on and it idles fine


Your ad is showing 2 different years in it. If it is an 89, there should be an IAC which stands for idle air control in your throttle body. You simply unplug the wires and then unscrew it out of your throttle body. Inspect it for crud build up on it. Look in the hole that you took it out of and inspect it also. You can spray carb cleaner in there to help clean it out. Re-install the IAC and see if it makes a difference. You may have to replace the IAC with a new one. Also make sure your butterflies are closing on your throttle body. You can spray carb cleaner in it also to help clean. Also you can spray some on a rag and wipe out around where the butterflies contact the throttle body.

Durango starts sometimes. then acts like its getting no gas and dies. if i stomp on gas it will keep running till i let off. bad gas ? fuel filter ? fuel pump?


I would suggest starting with the less expensive solutions first. If you pull the air intake hose off the throttle body and open the throttle with the engine off look down inside if it is black try spraying it out with throttle body cleaner make sure to spray it out good. Afterwards start it you may have to keep your foot on the gas for a few minutes to make sure it doesn't stall then take your foot off the gas pedal and see if it stays running if it does your throttle body just needed cleaned. Note do not use carb cleaner use throttle body cleaner only, carb cleaner can damage the sensor in your throttle body.

SHUTS OFF WHILE IDLE OR TURNING


ck to see if your throttle body is dirty. Buy a can of berrymans b12 carb cleaner (spray) and grab a friend. Take off air intake and expose throttle body. Have your friend start the engine and throttle up to 2000/3000 rpm and spray cleaner all arround throttle body while running. It will run like **** while you empty 1/2 to 3/4 of the spray into throttle body. Turn off and disconnect battery for at least 5 min to reset computer. reconnect and presto good rpm's no more slow idle and dying.

My truck is had to start or stalling


Hello,

I have had to work on those chevy trucks that do this 9 times out of 10 the throttle body needs cleaned. you can trace the throttle boddy by seeing when somebody pushes the gas pedal in the cable opens up the throttle body, the correct way is to take it off completly and get carb cleaner or kerosene and a old tooth brush and scrub it out but if you just want to get quick results leave it on and by carb cleaner or that type of a spray and sparay some in there scrub what you can reach and start the car or spray some while its running just BE CAREFULL !!! Any questions let me know and please rate me if you get a chance..

Thanks,
Steve
