Question about 2006 Ford F-150
I have a 2006 F-150 4X4 5.4ldr with 31084 miles on it. It quite often has a problem starting smoothly. When I turn the key the engine will continue to turn over without starting, and when it does start it is a very rough start as if the engine is just barley going to make it. The engine already sounds like it is 50 years old. What could the problem be? Thank you for the help.
HI, I KNOW THESE ENGINES GOOD! I HOPE YOU HAVE BEEN USING A FL820 MOTORCRAFT OIL FILTER AND 5/20 OIL. IF NOT YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH CAM PHASER'S AND OR TENSIONER'S. THR ENGINE IS A SINGLE OVERHEAD CAM ENGINE WITH VARIABLE CAM TIMING. I HAVE SEEN SEVERAL ENGINES WITH BAD CAM PHASER'S SIMPLY BY ADDING AFTERMARKET FILTER WHICH FALL APART INTERNALLY AND PLUG OIL GALLEYS TO HEAD AND CAUSE CAM PHASER'S TO ACT LIKE YOU'RE ENGINE IS RUNNING RETARTED UNTIL 2K RPM. IF NO NOISE IS HEARD TRY A FUEL PUMP ITS DRAINING DOWN AND COLD STARTS IT'S LIKE LACK OF ADEQUATE FUEL PRESSURE TO INJECTORS. IT'S REALLY SIMPLE. THESE TRUCKS WILL BE YOU'RE BEST FRIEND IF YOU USE AND FORD FILTER AND THE RIGHT OIL AND CHEVRON 87 OCTANE DUE TO THE INJECTOR'S CAN LEAK WITH CHEAP FUEL AND RUN LIKE ****. CHEVRON FOUND TO HAVE ADDITIVE TO KEEP INJECTORS CLEAN AND FUEL SENDER FROM BUILDING SULFUR AND READING FUEL LEVEL IMPROPERLY. HOPE THIS HELPS
