Question about Ford F-100

2 Answers

My 1978 ford f100 400 6cyl starts but when I come to a stop sign it wants to die. Sometimes it does it and sometimes it doesn't but most of the time it does. Is it the carburetor, the idle, the distributor cap, the fuel pump? What is it?

Probably the carburetor, or a vacuum line.

I have a 1996 Isuzu Hombre. Sometimes it won't start and just turn over. It also dies sometimes while driving or just idleing at stop sign. When this happens there is a clicking and buzzing sound


Sounds to me like a bad battery, however the alternator could be bad as well if it's not charging the battery enough to allow for amperage to crank. Auto Parts Forum

Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on my 95 Crown Vic


Using a smaller fuse should make the problem happen more often.
A mechanic would unplug the pump harness at the tank and check the circuit for high resistance or a short to ground.
If nothing is found in the harness, I would suspect the pump in the tank.

My 1978 ford bronco dies and doesnt want to restart. The motor has 2000 miles on it. It has a new electric fuel pump,coil distributor, cap,rotor, wires, plugs. it does the same exact thing with 2 diferant...


Float could be stuck, if it's carbureted or gasket under carb could be loose. Tighten and also put new filter in it. Could be bad injectors, if it's EFI which I doubt knowing the year. Could be choke setting wrong. I like manual choke myself. Try starting it with something holding choke open like a screwdriver handle. Something not too flammable.
