I have run into this concern many times and have had to replace the fuel heater at the bottom of the filter housing but also check for floating metal particles in the part,if they are present replace the filter again

I have a ford falcon 2002 xr6 ute with vct tickford motorist just stoped while driving gave a miss fire I have replaced crank sensor module coil fuel pump fuel filter still wont run running very ruf


On my falcon the same thing happened changed dizzy, coil even got new spark plugs what it turned out to be was auxiliary shaft that turns the dizzy or the dizzy module if you got coil packs. You can't see down the dizzy hole because its under the inlet manifold so take photo with your phone and you might see little bits of metal The auxiliary shaft teeth on the dizzy end where worn out and folding over so it can't give the proper spark at right time so went to wreckers 20 bucks for another. ford says it can't happen but I know quite a few engines with same problem

Most likely the fuel pump,when the fuel filter gets that restricted,it most of the time,is not long before the fuel pump goes out,because of the strain on the pump.

I'd be tempted to have fuel pressure checked, if at all possible, when it quits. If nothing else, carry a can of quickstart with you, and when it quits, remove air intake at throttle body inlet, and open throttle plate and give a good squirt of quick start, then try to start it. If it starts for a second or 2, then you know you have spark, but no fuel. I've seen fuel pumps work good while cool, and cut -out when it gets hot. Then sit and let pump cool off for 20 minutes or so, then pump up to pressure again and away we go, until it gets hot again. You might also find if you park in the shade, you'll get further, or even on a full tank. Another good idea would be to change fuel filter in case fuel pump is working too hard pushing fuel through a plugged filter, and causing low fuel pressure.

My 2005 mustang just stoped runing going down the road! started again and then off agin. I replaced the fuel filter and treated the gas. and Now it won't start. can you help?


You should verify that the fuel pump is operating properly. You can check the fuel pressure with a gauge. There should be proper fuel pressure when cold and hot. Sometimes fuel pumps start to run without enough pressure to feed the motor.
