Question about 1987 Ford F 150

I have 87 ford f150 v8 auto fuel injectors not working properly

I have 87 ford f150 looking to find out what is causing my injectors to stay open and dump all m gas into the oil pan, I've check continuity on all grounds and to and from motor to fire wall, and continuity in my wiring. What I'm not seeing is any signal from the computer to the injectors, they have battery voltage on the red wire and 3.5 ohms resistance but don't know what I'm missing? Have also ohmed out all sensors in wiring harness with fuel injectors and even disconnected all, reference wire to computer has correct voltage any ideas, thanks.

1999 Ford f150 V8 4.6 Fuel pump does not run up. Where is the relay and or fuse? How do I check the pump?

Did you check the fuel inertia switch ?

From the owners manual pg 155 :
Engine compartment :
Fuse # 10 - Fuel Pump
Fuse # 18 - Fuel injectors

pg 156
Fuel pump relay relay #302
You can swap the fuel pump relay with one of the trailer tow adapter relays to test with.

You can always jumper the normally open contacts in the relay socket ( shown as the red line below ) :

Hi got a ford f150 1986 f/i will not start

check fuel pressure @ service port on fuel rail. also listen for fuel pump to come on when you first turn on key. pump is in fuel tank. also note i have seen a lot of f150 302 injectors clogg up.but that usually effect idle and performance. if there is good fuel pressure then check fuel injector signal with a tester called a noid light. it is inexpensive and can be found @ most auto part stores. you really should'nt check injector signals with a standard 12 volt testlight. it has been known to burnout the drivers on the ecu. test all that first.

Need DIY instructions for cleaning the fuel injectors on a Ford F150 FX4 Triton V8

Very detailed and car specific. There are at least three ways to do it. One is to take the injectors out of the truck and use a fuel injector solvent to clean them. Another way is to use a fuel additive to clean your injectors pour in your tank and off you go (do it at every oil change) Another way is to hook your car up to a fuel injection cleaning machine. It essentially by passes your gas tank and connects directly to your injectors to clean them with your engine running.

I have # 4 cylinder misfire code on my 99 f150. what is the easiest way of going about replacing the plug and coil at this hard to get at spot? Or could a bad fuel injector be the problem??

If you have a miss fire it's probably the wires, plugs and coil pack and is it a 4.6 v8 or a 4.2 v6. Its rare that the injectors on a Ford ever go bad. They have the best injectors in the car industry.
Tune ups are easy on both v6 and v8's.
