Question about 1993 Ford F250

1 Answer

When I start my truck (1993 ford f-250 7.5L) it begins to shake pretty bad and smells strongly of gas. I changed the spark plugs, spark plug wires, and even adjusted the timing. What is wrong with the truck?

Sounds like a fuel leak. Check the lines from the tank to the engine. Check the injectors. Check the fuel rails.

Multiple misfire smells gas


When you had the coils checked did you get the module checked as well? Is the car throttle body or multi port injection?

Chevy cavalier 1998 2.2l Engines shake and when change to speed, it goes off


Carlos it sounds to me like your running with a dead cylinder. I want you to test for spark on all four of your plugs one at a time. You can buy a spark tester at most auto parts stores or just use a small diameter but long screw driver. With the engine off key off pull a plug wire off and insert the plug end of tester into the wire boot or stick the end of the screw driver in and attach the clip on tester to engine block or hold the shaft of the screw driver an 8th of an inch from the block an have a helper crank the motor ( be sure to keep all lose clothing and items away from moving parts) if you see spark jump the gap it's good. You can also remove the spark plug stick it back in the wire boot and holding the boot hold the threaded end of plug against the block. And watch the electrode for blue spark. I'm thinking you have a bad coil.

I changed my fuel pump, it gets gas to the moter but will not start. I have changed all the spark plugs and still will not start, has a strong turn over and i can smell some gas after a couple trys.


Check for spark,if there is no spark,it could be the crankshaft sensor.If it has spark,check the timing to make sure it has not jumped,or broken.

WONT START AND TRIES TO TURN OVER BUT BACK FIRES


AWESOME a real camaro problem.
backfire.
strong odor of gas because the gas isn't getting burned
caused from backfire. backfiring because the spark isnt sparking when its supposed to.
problems could be bad spark plug wires , bad plugs , bad ignition parts.
your gonna need to check wires for bad spots, check ignition coils and stuff like that. if all that stuff is ok, then your problems have to do with inside the engine. jumped time etc.

spark plugs , distributer cap, rotor and ignition wiring .. that often fixes problems with that year car ..

Turns over but won't start


pull out one of the spark plugs plug it in to plug wire run a jumper wire to the body or hook of the plug to ground the jumper must go to a suitable ground. pull out pcv hose to prevent car from starting have an assistant turn over the engine while you check for a strong blue or purple spark if the spark looks white or yellow there is a weak ignition condition and this must be adressed, bad ignition module bad cap and wires, etc. do the cap and rotor first if the spark is weak. If there is a strong spark sometimes holding the gas pedal to the floor while turning over the car for no more than 10 seconds starts stubborn motors do not let up on gas if car begins to start not until the motor starts to rev up.

1985 gmc sierra shakes


Nic, If the carburetor was dumping gas, remove the engine oil dip stick and see if it smells like gasoline. If it does you will need to change the oil.
Second, go back over your spark plug wires and verify they are on the correct spark plug. Start with the #1 plug wire, the firing order is 1,8,4.3.6.5.7.2...
Let me know how it turns out and we can go from there.
Good luck.
