Ford 150 not starting from key


Sounds like a broken wire from the ignition switch to the solenoid. - if it starts when you crank it over, the switch is probably good, because if the switch was bad the control module would not get the signal to keep the car running - it would think the key was turned off.
But sometimes you do get a bad solenoid or switch, coming new off the shelf, due to quality control issues. try another solenoid to be sure. or if the car cranks but does not run, try another switch.

WHAT CAUSES LOUD GRINDING SOUND WHEN TRYING TO CRANK MY 1990 FORD F150 WHEN IN PARK?


Check and make sure the bell housing on the transmission isn't broke and trying to separate from the engine. Shifter shouldn't move while cranking unless transmission itself is moving.

Most of the time this means low fuel pressure,check the fuel filter to see if it is stopped up,if so,replace it,if not,then have the fuel pressure checked to rule out fuel pump.

Truck will crank but won't start, checked fuel tank switch and it works, you can hear fuel pump come on and truck still won't start


check the fire to the spark plugs first,if they fire good check fuel pressure,if good check compression especially if it's a 300 6 cyl they can almost completly loose compression and sometimes no smoke or any thing.that pretty well covers all bases gas pressure,fire,and commpression.if low compression check timing they had plastic on the outside of the gears it breaks and falls off then time jumps,warning i've seen some vehicles still show decent compression even out of time just depending on the position of crank and cam.hope it helps

Check all of your vacume lines. If it isn't a vacume line it is most likely the O2 sensor.
