I know the ford cars had a trip relay for the fuel pump. In the event of a wreck it shuts the fuel pump down and has to be reset manually. I am unsure if the pickups had the same thing.

DID YOU CHECK FUEL AT THE RAIL WITH A GAUGE OR JUST PUSH THE NEEDLE VALVE AND HAVE FUEL THERE. IF YOU DIDN'T CHECK IT WITH A GAUGE YOU MORE THAN LIKELY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH PRESSURE. BEING ITS A FORD YOU NEED TO CHECK THAT THE FUEL CUT OFF SWITCH DID NOT POP IF ITS OK THEN IT'S THE PUMP

Drive 1988 ford f150 on the highway it dies and won,t start back. It acts like it is out of gas. Let it set 30 mins. and it starts right up


Fuel Pump-a possible. The time frame of 30 minutes will vary.
The armature on the pump motor is worn, as well as the tiny bearing,so it seizes or just stops conducting current.
Drop fuel tank and replace. May be able to remove all bed bolts but rear ones, and tip bed up.

Fuel pump location 1988 ford econoline


Theres 2 pumps one in the tank, lift pump, and one in the chassis rail under the driver side. The one in the tank is cheap, the one in the rail is not. The one in the tank only produces low pressure to prime the main pump and if it is broken, may not cause that much of an issue except when starting. the one in the rail is a no-start if it fails. The idea is that the rail pump can supply high pressure for the injectors, so a fuel pressure test at the injector rail will determine which pump is playing up. Hope that helps Tim

Hi got a ford f150 1986 f/i will not start


check fuel pressure @ service port on fuel rail. also listen for fuel pump to come on when you first turn on key. pump is in fuel tank. also note i have seen a lot of f150 302 injectors clogg up.but that usually effect idle and performance. if there is good fuel pressure then check fuel injector signal with a tester called a noid light. it is inexpensive and can be found @ most auto part stores. you really should'nt check injector signals with a standard 12 volt testlight. it has been known to burnout the drivers on the ecu. test all that first.

88 ford f150 inline 6 wont start...


check to see that you have fuel all the way to the engine.to do this: pull the fuel pump fuse and, crank the engine a few times to releive pressure then open the fuel line, cover it with a rag for safety then: replace the fuse and, crank the engine just for a second or, two if no fuel comes out it's another fuel filter probably on the truck frame rail that is the problem or, low pressure from the fuel pump

I have no power to my fuel injectors on 88 saab 900 turbo


There should always be power at the injectors as long as the fuel pump is on. The fuel injection ECU provides a ground to the injectors to turn them on.
You most likely have a bad fuel injection ECU. This is a very common failure on 88,89 and 90 SAABs.

Fuel Problem


fuel pressure regulator? This diverts excess pressure from the rail back to the tank. When they wear out they usually stay stuck open thus diverting all pressure back to the tank. Pressure tests do not reveal this as pressure is checked before the rail not in it. I do believe you have a bad fuel regulator. They are 75US ouch.
