Question about 2004 Ford F150

1 Answer

My truck quit running last night and would not turn over the motor - I do not believe it is seized - it had plenty of oil. The battery is still strong and a jump made no difference. It seemed to me that the belt was stuck. My mechanic told me that I needed a complete new ac system and the pulley that turns the ac system has been making some weird noises. Could the ac system - which has not worked for 2 years have the abilility to freeze and stop the engine {because of the belt attached] from turning over?

Yes, it can. Anything with a pulley and a bearing can seize up from the air pump, to the alternator, to the idler tension pulley, to, yes, the a/c compressor.

I drove my car and it had no oil it turned off while driving now it wont start whats wrong with it?


If you drove it without oil and it heated up enough you seized the engine and you are out of luck. Engine rebuild or replacement is your only option. Check this out with a mechanic first before getting crazy though.

I changed the oil in my 1999 dodge Stratus last night and this morning it lost all power and the engine seized but there is no oil leak. I tried to turn the crank but it won't turn. Looking for possible...


Sorry that happened, if you didn't start the motor right after you changed the oil, it's that the any oil that was left in the motor bearings would have drained out leaving them dry. Sounds like you spun a bearing when it started. You could pull the oil pan and look at the connecting rod ends, if any are blue, the motors ruined. I'd start looking for a new motor.

First try boosting car with extra battery, attach posotive cable of booster battery to posotive cable of your battery and negative cable of booster battery to engine block, never to negative post of your battery, If it still does not turn over,Try turning over the motor with a socket and stong arm attched to crankshaft bolt. It could be that your motor has seized due to lack of lubrication

Wont start


losing water for months, but no eveidnese under car. Either being blown out exhaust or it's in the oil. Pull out oil dipstick and check if oil if foamy or too thin. That would mean the presents of coolant in the oil. And that happens from bad headgasket.
This could keep from starting depending on how freezing.

Van wont start or turn over. (battery has lots of power)


Possibly a dirty or loose battery terminal. If they are okay and starter won't click, give the small wire on the starter motor solenoid a wiggle. It could be a bad conection.

Wont crank


The starter for one. Is it not turning over at all or you hear a clicking noise. did the motor just quit and will not restart. consider that the motor could be seized up but that's a last possibility.
