SOURCE: engine misses, then shut off, won't start again

not sure about the 2008 model, but the earlier ones had coil pack problems. it looks like part of the rocker cover with around four torque screws holding it down and one multi plug at the end on the n/s of the engine. oh they used to blow the fuse at the same time for the engine management. 30amp dooor pillar/"A"post area. test by removing the coil pack, fitting the spark plugs into the plug outlets. earth the body of each plug and crank the engine, you shoukld see a spark, if not then there are other tests before confirming the coil pack. let me know how you get on.

SOURCE: No start condition

It sounds as if it could be the neutral safety switch. have you tried to start it in neutral instead of park?? If it starts in neutral just have the neutral safety switch replaced. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: my ford f150 wont start, battery is good, have a

On the firewall is the starter motor relay. There are 2 large battery sized cables to it, and 1 smaller ( 16 AWG ) wire that is orange or orange with a stripe ( forget the color, want to say white or tan ).

When you turn the key to the start position, check the smaller gauge wire for +12 V. The case should be ground. If you do not get +12 on the orange wire, try starting the truck in neutral ( apply the parking brake, chock the wheel, etc normal safety precautions ). Test for +12 V at the small wire. This is the output of the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor or in common terms the Neutral switch. The start position on the ign switch runs through the DTR to the starter motor relay coil.
If you have a stick, the DTR is replaced by the Clutch Pedal Position Switch ( clutch must be pushed in to start ).
If you have power to this ( at the times the truck won't start ) next is to check the both battery cable ends to see if they are corroded and making intermittent contact ( not probable but possible ).

Fan clutch or fan clutch sensor? How do I tell the difference? See more details

I wish you guys/gals would give info on what vehicle you need help with..just too many variables out there today..most cars today have fan sensors that are located in the radiator core turns on when the temp rises above the preset temp..and shuts off when it reaches the normal operating temp of the clutches were designed to work with RPM's allowing the engine to rev and not lose power from fan spinning..a stuck clutch would cause high revs of the fan and reduced cruising speed..a lose one would cause over heating.hope this helps good luck..

What would cause the top radiator hose on 2005 lincoln ls v8 to blow out for a second day in a row after replacing it for just the same reason?

Overheating due to bad thermostat or bad radiator cap could cause the problem. The radiator cap vents excessive pressure to the overflow container which should also have fluid in it at all times.

when engine over heating to keep from doing engine damage determine how long you drive vechicle if you stopped in time.replace thermostat, radiator pressure cap and replace radiator if it has holes in it and leaking replace top and bottom radiator hoses.check your engine oil on oil dip stick if dip stick look like milk shake you could blowed head gasket if you did drive too long when truck over heated.check your radiator cooling clutch fan should when engine cold turn clutch fan by hand should drag when engine get hotter then clutch fan should be more harder to turn by hand.if clutch fan feel loose and spin easily free wheel clutch fan need replacing it will cause engine to overheat.

Water pump

Disconnect battery, the first time you lay a wrench across the posts you'll understand why...Drain radiator. If petcock at bottom of radiator doesn't work, pull the bottom radiator hose. You will probably want to remove the radiator rock-guard under bumper first. LOTS more room to work. Just pop out the plastic retaining pins and slide it under the vehicle out of your way. *TIP* DO NOT lay under the hose b/c it's easier to reach, keep your mouth closed, and have the catch pan for the coolant already under the vehicle. While you are down there, look for an inline connector on the trans. cooler line(near center bottom of radiator). Use two wrenches to disconnect these and have something clean to plug the line with, it WILL leak. Disconnect top rad. hose and overflow hose(located on base of radiator fill). Disconnect the TOP trans. fluid cooler line. Remove four fan shroud retaining bolts. Don't lose. Remove radiator mounting bolts(2). Lean the fan shroud against the pulleys/belt and remove the radiator. Three hands would be nice right now as you will need to wriggle the trans cooler line around the shroud mounts and lower trans cooler line to get it out. Be patient, it WILL come out. Remove the fan shroud from vehicle. Loosen the clutch fan bolt w/ a clutch fan wrench( lg. Channel Lock) or a lg. crescent wrench. Serpentine belt might hold it tight enough, might not. If not, remove belt and use a strap wrench to hold onto the water pump pulley while loosening clutch fan bolt. Probably has reverse threads. Righty loosey instead of lefty loosey. Now remove the heater core coolant return line from right side of water pump. Look at top of water pump, there is a 1-1/2" hose you will need to loosen so the WP will come out. Start at 12 o'clock position and remove the WP bolts, keeping them in order as you take them out as they are different lengths. ***** You should be able to gently pry the WP away from the engine block now. If not, look for more bolts in the WP. There is one near the top that is easy to miss, hard to see. Now you can clean all the old gasket from the engine block in preparation to put the new WP on.
You will prob be better off getting a new WP as most have a life-time warranty and rebuilts do not. (saved me $57.09!!)Most new WPs will have a thread protector on the pulley that will need to come off. Next you should put a thin layer of high temp RTV(Permagasket, etc.) on the WP and the back of the gasket. Using 1 or 2 of the longer bolts as guides you can carefully re-install the WP to the engine. Torque the WP bolts evenly a little at a time. Go back up to " ***** " and you should be able to reverse order the instructions from there. Remember to use the O ring for the heater core coolant return line. Mine still leaks there but hopefully I'll get that fixed tomorrow, even if I have to get a replacement tube. Good luck.
