91 f150 xlt lariat 2wd 302 5.0 v8 started a bit weak as I drove off my battery light came on and truck cut off. It will turn over strongly but not start. Plenty of power to everything

Double check the alternator and starter solenoid wiring connections... verify all nuts are tightened and all connections are firm...also verify belt is not loose..test both cam and crankshaft sensors..check voltage regulator on the alternator....but first check fuses and relays....

5.0 liter 91 ford f150 xlt lariat engine is idling at 2000 rpm, how do i rev down and how hsrd is it to change the oil pump

ther biggest cause for this problem after making sure all throttle cables and cruise cables,and if equipt. kick down cables are a leaking intake gasket usually the one between the upper and lower intake...check all vaccuum lines for leakes and the brake for the oil pump if its 4x4 it is quite the chore...5.0lt are famous for low oil pressure if they are high mileage from bearing wear..if your not experienced in big jobs take it to a pro...if you are going by your dash gauge put a mechanical gayge on it to verify the pressure...maybe its just a sender!

Check all wires and switch used to wire the push button ignition. Make sure none have melted due to the stress from hard starting in cold weather. If a thick enough guage of wire was not used it will get hot and could melt.

1990 ford xlt lariat is idling high all the time

Hello sheritribbl

The most common problem on a Ford V8 truck is the intake plenum gasket has distorted and maybe causing a major vacuum leak. While idling listen for a high pitched hissing noise. Buy a can of oxygen sensor safe Carburetor Cleaner. With the engine idling, spray around the center of the top half of the engine until you notice a change in the sound of the engine. Keep spraying to try to isolate the source of the leak....Be careful an follow the directions on the can of carb cleaner as to safety precautions...
