Look under the hood all around the power steering pump for an electrical connector that is unplugged. No way changing a power steering pump should interfere with starting. Also, your truck is an electronic fuel injected model and the gas pedal should never be pushed while trying to start--the computer is in the process of checking and adjusting several things while you are starting the engine. Something in the wiring harness has been changed. Some models also have sensors in the power steering pump circuit, and when the pump is changed, the computer must be reset, or you can experience problems similar to this.

We put a new starter in also a new battery


Confirm that all of the pulleys are free to rotate. The water pump, alternator, power steering, idler, tension, and A/C.

The A/C compressor has been known to seize

Installing the belt including the alternator (unless a pulley has seized) is very unlikely to keep the engine from crank!

Hope this helps

I have a 2001 mustang bullitt that is showing service engine light on. Took it to mechanic and he put 2 different machines on it to show code for problem. No codes coming up and he can't turn off the...


There is a diagnostic procedure in the factory service repair manual for engine light lit ,no codes . Did you take it to ford dealer ? MIL - is referring to check engine , service engine soon etc...
  • MIL always on when engine is running (no DTCs):
  • MIL circuits
  • For Focus, Mustang, Town Car, Continental, LS6/LS8, Escape, Windstar, F-150, Expedition and Navigator/Blackwood:
  • Instrument Cluster, Section 413-01 of the Workshop Manual.
  • All Others:
  • GO to NB1

SERVICE ENGINE SOON indicator After the engine is started, the SERVICE ENGINE SOON indicator will prove out for a duration of three seconds. If the instrument cluster does not receive a message from the PCM within five seconds, the instrument cluster will illuminate the SERVICE ENGINE SOON indicator and log a diagnostic trouble code (DTC).

  • An indicator is inoperative/always on - SERVICE ENGINE SOON
  • Circuitry.
  • Bulb.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • PCM.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test P .

PINPOINT TEST P: AN INDICATOR IS INOPERATIVE/ALWAYS ON - SERVICE ENGINE SOON CONDITIONS DETAILS/RESULTS/ACTIONS P1 CARRY OUT THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER SERVICE ENGINE SOON INDICATOR ACTIVE COMMAND Trigger the HEC active command MIL.
  • Did the SERVICE ENGINE SOON indicator illuminate?
Yes REFER to Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual.

No INSTALL a new instrument cluster; REFER to Instrument Cluster . CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test.

I have a 2006 Hummer 3. The power steering gets stiff and hard to turn intermittently. I have the factory recommended tires and have the truck serviced every 4000 miles.


I find it hard to believe that one of the tubes of steering oil could be blocked unless hit, so I would go for the pump. Poor oil pressure, ends up to low oil flow. However check your tubes, from and to the pump, and then, go for the pump. Sorry I can't tell you more.

1992 Pace Arrow Motor Home 454 Chevy...not getting fuel to start


After you dump the fuel in the throttle body it will continue to run on its own or die as soon as it burns up all the fuel you dump in? Do you have access to (Noid lights)? Are both plugs attached to the distributor?

Steering hard /loosing pwer at 40-55mph


Take the car in for a new serpentine belt and tensioner right away before you destroy the engine. The alternator, power steering pump and waterpump are not turning right now because the belt has come off. The battery will die soon because it is not charging, and the engine will overheat and perform it's own little rendition of the china syndrome. When the red warning lights in the dash come on, it generally means; park it unless you're being shot at.
