Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Ford F-150 that was "chugging" and stalling. I replaced the fuel filter and it ran great for two days then started the problems again. I checked the fuel pressure valve and even tried shaking the *** out of the truck but to no avail. Now it wont even start. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hooking up a fuel pressure gauge an testing fuel pressure an flow would be the thing to do . Checking spark , voltage drop test the fuel pump electrical circuit . Don't know what this is ! Take it to a qualified repair shop.

SOURCE: 95 gmc safari replaced fuel filter van ran great now wont start

Since you replaced the distributor, are you sure it's properly timed? Hook up timing light and try to crank. It should show you where your timing mark is. It will also verify that you are getting spark.
You need to start a systematic check. Is it electrical, mechanical, fuel related? Need to do more checking and maybe we can get that puppy going.

Good Luck

1996 ford explorer stalls like it ran out of gas


It sounds like a weak fuel pump is causing the occasional stalling, particularly when attempting acceleration at normal driving speeds. It's not unusual for it to idle with no problem if the pump is weak. Also, check the fuel lines to.from the fuel pump. If all else fails, you might consider adding an auxiliary fuel pump to counter the weak OEM pump.

The first thing to check is the ignition timing then the spark plug gaps. There are specific settings/size for the above and must be correct for the car to run smoothly.

1991 Ford F150 starts for an instant then stalls


my dad used to say you need two things to start a motor; gas and fire. Check these and make sure they are both good. You have to go through the steps from there. Could be a fuel filter. could be bad plugs. etc. etc... Hope it helps.
