Providing you are getting fuel and fire to the engine then I would check the cat and the muffler one of them is plugged and it is probably the catalytic converter. If it is it the back pressure on the engine won't allow the fuel to be drawn into the cyl. and fire. Take the o2 sensor out of the exhaust ahead of the cat and see if it will start, it will run rough be if it starts you have found the problem. Hope this helps.

I have a 1989 Ford f150 drive for about 30 minutes it dies out or stop and want crank for about an hour


I would unplug the gas cap when it stalls; if you hear a hissing sound, change the gas cap, because it builds up a vacuum in the tank.

Ford excursion 2002 - starting fine but losing power and stalling after running for 10 minutes. Rest for about 5 minutes, then starts up again


Can you perform a spark test? I would like to know if it has spark when it stalls. Also, if you have a can of starter fluid, wait for it to stall and not want to restart, the quickly spray some starter fluid into the intake. If it runs on the starter fluid, you have a fuel issue. You might also want to make sure the engine coolant level is fine and you aren't overheating. If you coolant level is low you may not know it is overheating since the coolant sensor isn't in coolant. It won't read air.

Ford 1981 f 150 not running changed Coil distributor cap Roar arm plug wires did not help started bur ran extremely rough then died


motors need 3 things to run properly. gas spark and compression. the starting point. also spark timing.
the motor you are dealing with is easy. i just rebult a 1978. anyways sounds like a timing problem . first i would check the distributer. if all is ok spay a squirt of starting fluid in the air filter, or even wd40.,,,,,,,see if it is gasoline problem. isolate where the problem is.

I was going down the rd and my truck 1989 ford f150 just cut off on me and wont start bak...it is getting fire, its getting gas, its got compression, the engine turns over fine, but it wont crank up and...


Sounds like your approach has not been successful
because you change things in hope of a solution

You have to gather the facts based on what it does
or doesn't do,then do some testing on what does work
As your proceeding you will eventually find something
that isn't right. Maybe the fuel pump etc.

I don't mean to be negative toward you in any way,but
you need a good understanding of the basics and the
ability to use a volt meter etc.

When you say you have spark,gas etc,you may well have
But is it weak spark,is it correctly timed,is fuel pressure
correct.

For the future---forget the tune-up and spark plug thing
You could throw away one or two plugs and it would start

I have a Ford F150, I in drove in high water


i would drain the oil and change it and the oil filter, then i would replace the fuel filter and try to start it if still has an issue, while cranking check for spark, if you have spark and fuel vehicle should run , as far as the code look up trouble codes on google for automotive and it should help you out.

89 ranger i was driving than it just stalled. i have spark, i have fuel but no fire. but it wont start, if i put starting fluid in the intake it will run for a second then stall.


If you can keep spraying staring fluid and it stays running then the fuel pump is no pumping. only with a pressure gauge can you test it
