Question about 1992 Ford F150 SuperCab

1 Answer

1992 F-150 Won't stay running,even if you pump/push on the gas.

New gas tank, fuel relay works, fuel pump works, the fuel switch is on, the fuel pump connector has been replaced. When the key is turned on you can hear the relay and the pump, but not every time with the pump. The truck will start if both turn on but when you go to drive it it acts like it's getting no gas, it chugs and dies even if you push on the gas. The tank is half full, we put two dry gases in it to see if that was a problem. We've looked at everything we can think of and can't find the problem. Any sugestions?

Sounds like the pump is not getting power all the time. I know you said you replaced the connector to the pump, but have you replaced the pump. It sounds like the pump has a short in it. Also when it does not work have you tried hitting the reset button on it to see if it will start working. Try this next time and if it starts working after messing with the switch the problem is in the switch.

97 mercury mountaineer. won't start


hi,

watch your oil pressure when cranking, you have to have some oil pressure to get the fuel system to start. you may have to find the hot wire at the relay and energize it to see if it is indeed the fuel pump going out. if its been sitting and its a 97 the fuel pump just might have went, you can also try hitting the gas tank from the outside in the middle to see if that works too. have a water hose or fire extinguisher around when your working on fuel system and leave one of your battery cable a little loose..

Good explanation of symptoms.Thank you.




No assumptions.
Diagnose problem.
Pinch off the fuel return line.
Check fuel pressure--I don't wanna!PITA!
The fuel pump won't run if the fuel filter is plugged up.
Toyota's have a gas tank drain plug!!!!!!!!!
My '84 takes a 3/8 " ratchet. Cool.

There may be a fuel pump relay that is toast,but I suspect the filter,off hand.
A plugged filter will overwork the pump and cause the engine to run rich.

I would say more than likely your problem is a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump. To narrow this down, listen for the fuel pump 'priming' (making a whining noise from the gas tank) turn the key to the On position and you should hear this whining for about 3 seconds, if you can hear this the fuel pump works fine, if not it is probably time for a new one. As for the fuel filter being that it is a 1987, I would replace it even if it is not clogged, the easiest way to test if it is clogged though is to blow at through it with your mouth and if you feel any resistance then it needs replacing.

Yes, there is a Fuel Pump Relay. The Relay is located on the firewall just above the left-hand (even cyclinders) valve cover as viewed from the front of the car. There is also fuel pump test lead attached to the harness at the fuel pump relay. Attach a power wire from the battery to the lead and the fuel pump should come on. If fuel pump comes on, the relay could be bad. Also check the fuel filter located under the passenger side of the truck tucked into the frame rail.

Turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine. You should hear the fuel pump running for 5 seconds if working. This primes the gas to the injectors when doing this. If not heard running check the oil pressure switch for the 12 volts needed to run the fuel pump starts there on that harness. When the engine starts and the oil pressure reaches the normal pressure the computer shuts off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay to run the pump. The relay stays on till you shut the engine off

You should be able to hear the pump in the tank running. If you don't check the fuel pump relay. If you hear the pump running then the line/filter could be plugged. The white relay is the tank selector relay, the green relay is the fuel pump relay. If the green relay is bad you will have a bad time getting the replacement. The new relays from the dealer and parts stores are all 5 pin. The green relay is a 4 pin.

Also your genset probably has a pump that pulls from that tank on its own.
