I'm beginning to find out that this is a very common concern with these year model Ford diesels. There are several things to make this happen. First try checking all of your fuses, then try the fuel shut-off switch behind the passenger side kik panel just below the glove compartment, There should be an access hole there so you can reset it. Then you can check your injector module relay in the fuse box under the hood. There is a high pressure oil sensor on the rear of the passenger side valve cover that if it fails will cause your truck not to start. There is also a cam sensor located on the front of the engine near the timing chain cover that would also cause the same issues. If none of these fix it you need to get it to the shop. The only other things would be the oil pressure sensor beneath the intake, the high pressure oil line that powers the injectors could be leaking, the high pressure oil pump could of gone out or the injector control module may of shorted out, all of witch need to be done by a factory tech. due to resetting and reprogramming.

97 ford explorer fuel pump pressure regulator


Usually if cranks good but won't start, you have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and check fuel injector pulse. I don't know what testing you have done?
As far as the fuel regulator, it depends? If there is a return line, the pressure regulator should be on the fuel rail. If no return line, with mechanical returnless, the regulator may be in a loop close to gas tank. With electronic returnless, everything is in the gas tank. Sorry, I haven't found any pictures?

My car wontturn over in the morning. I changed to fuel pump and fuel filter. It cranks but wont turn over, then after a while it starts. What could be causing this


Fuel pressure regulator is a good place to look. look at the extra injector that enrichens the mixture on a cold engine too.

99 tarurus stop getting fuel.


Could be a fuel pressure regulator or lost signal from crank sensor that gives inaccurate data.
The crank sensor is responsible for sending data to increase fuel pressure as a function of increased RPM. If the RPM reads low, then fuel pressure will be low.
Check fuel pressure.
Thinking that air pressure is affecting pressure regulator and compensating for a weak regulator diaphragm.
Would be interested in final fix of your problem.

Crank tolong before it start


First check your fuel pressure regulator by pulling the vacuum line off and check for fuel there should not be any.Then start the car and with a pressure gauge hooked up to fuel rail pull the vacuum line off the pressure should rise 5-10 psi if it does'nt replace regulator.Next check the fuel pressure it should be 41-47 with key on and engine off if not within specs replace fuel pump.

My 2004 pontiac grand prix will not start on the first or second try.


Would you describe it as it cranks over normally but takes longer to start than normal especially if the engine is hot and sits for about 15 to 20 minutes before trying to start?

The first thing I would check is the fuel pressure regulator. It will be located on the fuel rail on the drivers front of the engine. It will be a round looking part held into the rail with a snap ring. It will have a small vacuum hose attached to it. Remove the vacuum hose and see if gas comes out of the nipple. If it does than the regulator is bad and will need to be replaced.

Two things happen when the regulators leak like this. the first is that fuel pressure drops. Low fuel pressure makes the fuel easier to boil in a hot engine. Fuel injector need liquid fuel to work properly. the other is that unmetered fuel ends up in the intake essentially flooding the engine. In both cases the engine eill need to be cranked over long enough to clear the flooded condition and for the fuel pump to run long enough to push liquid fuel back into the fuuel rail and restore fuel pressure.

Here's a trick to try next time. Turn the key to the run position (do not turn it all the way to the crank position). Wait 5 seconds and turn the key off then imediately turn the key back to the run position and wait another 5 seconds. Repeat this 3 or 4 times then crank the engine over. If it starts right up every time than you definitely have an issue with fuel pressure bleeding off.

The most common cause is a leaking pressure regulator but it can also be the fuel pump.

6 cylindrer has trouble starting. You need to cranki it for a long time to start, but once it starts it runs perfect If it sits for more than 30 to 45 minutes it has the same problem but not after five or...


On the fuel rail there will ba a fuel pressure regulator. It will have a vacuum hose going to it. Pull off the vacuum hose and see if gas comes out of the nipple on the regulator. If it does than you have a bad fuel pressure regulator. If it doesn't than the next step would be to measure fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge.

A bad check valve in the fuel pump can cause the same condition you described. It is commonly reffered to as an "extended crank".

Starting car is problem. it will start after maybe two trys. i have tried engine cleaner, but still it is slow starting,. battery is good, thats been checked.


When you have an engine that is hard to start or the engine takes longer than normal to start, with a fuel injected engine it will normally be caused by a fuel problem. Another problem would be slow cranking of the engine because of a low battery, I would check all of the fuel related problems if the engine seems to crank normally. There are a few things to check. First pull the fuel filter off and wipe it off so you don't get gas in your mouth and try to blow through one of the fuel connections on the filter. If you can't blow through it the filter is pluged and needs to be replaced. A plugged fuel filter can cause hard starting and can also damage your fuel pump. The next thing to do when everything is put back on the car is to check the fuel system for bleed down. You need to locate the fuel pressure test connection on the engine. Connect a fuel pressure gauge to the connection and start the engine, then turn the ignition off. With the engine off the pressure should read and stay between 30psi and 40psi, to be sure of the pressure you will have get the spec's on the engine you have. The main thing you will be looking for is to make sure the pressure doesn't start bleeding down in to direction of zero after a few minutes or maybe even immediately. If you see the pressure start to bleed down you have a problem. There are two problems that normally cause the pressure to bleed down. One is a bad check valve in the fuel pump, the other is a bad fuel pressure regulator. The main thing that happens with a fuel pressure regulator is the diaphram inside starts leaking. When that happens sometimes it will leak fuel into the intake manifold through the vaccuum hose connection to the intake manifold. To check for a fuel leak through the vacuum hose connection, locate the vacuum hose on the fuel pressure regulator and pull the hose from either the manifold connection or from the connection at the fuel reguator. If you see any gas at all the fuel regulator is leaking and must be replaced. If it is a slow leak from the regulator you might have to start the engine with the vacuum hose disconnected and look for a leak from the hose. If you don't find anything wrong with the regulator the next problem area would be fuel pressure bleeding back into the gas tank because of a bad check valve in the fuel pump. If this is the problem the fuel pump would have to be replaced. My first guess as to what is causing your problem would be the fuel pressure regualtor although I would definately want to make sure the fuel filter is not plugged. (Please Note) The fuel pressure regulator is located in the intake manifold area of the engine. The fuel pump is located in the gas tank. The fuel filter is located usually somewhere under the car.

The best way to help find the problem, is to have a fuel pressure test done on it, that will tell if the fuel pump is weak, or the fuel pressure regulator is malfunctioning. If the pressure is low, the fuel pump is weak,
if it is high, the fuel regulator is at fault.
