SOURCE: 87 F150 5.0L Starter problems

you do not say that you got the vehicle in this condition so i am guessing that everything worked just fine for a while then all of a sudden it did this. it would be nice if you still had the starter that did work when you got the truck but i'm sure you turned it in for a core several starters ago. it may have had a different number of teeth on the gear that spins out and engages than the ones you are buying at the car parts store. if somebody changed the flywheel at some point in the life of the truck and used the starter that went to that flywheel that would cause the situation you describe. the only other thing i can imagine is the spacing on the starter, like maybe it needs to be shimmed to work properly. the way to check that is with a feeler gage after you bolt the starter up, but that is mostly general motors vehicles, probably not your truck. here is a way that you can check to make sure you have the right flywheel for your truck: get a paint pen or something that makes a mark you can see on the metal of the flywheel. now with the starter off get under the truck and make a mark on a tooth of the flywheel that you can see where it is when you start. oh yeah, you will need some help to do this. let the tooth you mark be number one. now have someone rotate the engine slowly (you might disconnect the coil so you don't accidentally start it, but you probably won't) and count the teeth on the flywheel, till that number one tooth comes back around. when you know what the number is on your flywheel call a parts store or the dealership and keep talking to people till you get somebody to tell you how many teeth it should be for your truck. if it doesn't match what you have then you know where the problem lies. at that point you can either replace the flywheel or figure out which starter goes to the one you have. if you already have the right one then i would check the tooth clearance. you should have .020 inch between starter gear teeth and flywheel teeth with starter fully extended. to check this you will have to connect the battery but loosely, bump the starter switch to get the starter to spin up and yank the battery negative while it is spun out. you can get the .020 check gage at a car parts store. hope that helps

My 2007 f150 will not crank over I hear the relay click but there seems to be no power going to the solenoid. I replaced the relay and it started about 30 times now same prob any advice


What relay did you replace ? Starter relay ? Removing the relay you may have changed connector position in the fuse / relay box where the relay plugs into . Wiggle the relay see if that does anything . At the relay base jump pin's 30 & 87 with jumper wire , it should crank the engine over . If you look on the bottom of the relay you will see 4 set's of numbers 30 & 87 are load side of the relay . If you were to test with a voltmeter ,pin 30 would have Battery voltage ,Pin 87 goes to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Pins 85 & 86 are the control side .When you turn the key to start B+ voltage goes through the run / start diode ,located in the AUX relay box 1 through the digital transmission range sensor to pin 86 of the starter relay ,pin 85 goes to the PCM .Where the PCM supply's a ground energizing the starter relay closing the contacts inside sending B+ voltage to the starter solenoid S terminal . Do you have a automatic trans or manuel ? Move gear selector to neutral , check out wiring diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Watch videos on youtube for basic electrical testing , voltage drop testing etc....

Sorry, if it is an automatic (I assume it is) no matter what model trans it is, the 95 is electronic and requires a computer to shift.
