Question about Ford F-100

1 Answer

I AM RESTORING A T020 MF. I REPLACED ALL WIRING AND IGNITION SYSTEM AND REBUILT THE CARBURATOR, AND ADJUSTED IT TO SPECS. I GOT IT TO START RIGHT AWAY AND IT SOUNDS GREAT. HOWEVER, IT WILL ONLY RUN FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS THEN IT DIES. WHEN I GO TO START AGAIN WITHOUT WAITING MUCH IT STARTS THEN DIES WITHIN 5 SECONDS, IF I WAIT A LITTLE LONGER IT RUNS FOR THE 30 SECONDS THEN DIES. IS THIS A GAS PROBLEM OR A ELECTRICAL PROBLEM?

Ok a quick check. When the engine cuts out and you go for restart it dies within 5 seconds. Next time put the ignition at position 2 (on but not starting) and wait one minute, then start the car. If the engine again runs for 30 seconds before cutting off this tells you its is a fuel problem. If the fuel is supplied slowly it fills the carburettor fuel bowls and when the car starts it quickly uses up these local reservoirs of fuel faster than they can be replenished. When you try to restart immediately there is only a tiny amount of fuel and so it used up almost immediately. By leaving the ignition on 2 for while it gives the pump time to fill the carburettor bowls and this takes a while longer to run down when the engine starts. Just before moving on does the car have a choke OK remove the low tension connection to the coil, basically remove any chance of a spark. Put a big old towel around the carb. Now remove the fuel line at the carburettor and put ignition on 2 to engage the starter pump. Listen to pump operation and look at the rate of fuel being pushed from the disconnected fuel pipe. If the flow is slow check on pump and filters.

After driving 20-30 minutes I shut the truck off and it will start but then dies and wont start again for 40- to a hour


I have a similar problem. My engine shuts down after about five minutes..
Measuring the current into the distributor(ignition) reveals a jump in current from 3 to 40 amps.
The power lead is red on white and the ignition lead is yellow on black and goes into a connector under the dash where the ignition wire changes to white on black. Three different wiring diagrams give no clue to how this problem is caused.
Also, the starter is good for only a few turns after the engine warms up.

Carburator and idle problem


Believe it or not you just said the solution to your own problem manufacturers specs requires for any adjustments to engine idle or other carburator adjustments to be preformed while the engine is idling and at normal operating temp in plain english let the car warm up then make your idle and mixture adjustments if this doesnt solve it i would check the auto choke and make sure it is opening at normal operating temp hope this helps good luck

WHY DOES TRUCK HESITATE WHEN GIVING GAS AND STALLS


Is it carburator? I had the same problem with mine 85 ford ranger. I had the carburator rebuilt but it still took the shop 3 tries before they got the adjustment right. It's either your fuel pump (most likely). Inside the carburator, there's a float that adjust to much gas is needed and that could also be the problem. The float might be defective so it stalls when you step on the gas. I suggest replacing the fuel filter as well if you gonna work on it
Other unlikely culprit could be your ignition wires/coil/spark plugs. Check to see when they were last replaced.....
good luck

Rebuilt carburator and truck runs rich. Cant get adjusted right and under accelereation truck boggs down


im pretty sure that the float adjustment is set wrong, if to high it will act as if truck is flooding out, and be very rich. if to low you will not get the power you need. readjust float level. make sure there is no dirt inside carburator. for adjustment turn screws way in and back out 1 and a half turns.start from there.

Every time i open my a/c, the engine will go into low mode and extreme vibrations occur. the mechanic dont know where to find the idle of my a/c, pls help me boss. tnx


good day, if you have a carburator type engine you may find the idle underneath the air filter cover, you can adjust it using a screw driver. hope this helps, have a nice day

1966 Corvette Ignition, car stops running in 2-3 miles, just quit


one of the symptoms of a faulty coil is that it will cut off when warm next time you run it just feel the coil if it is hot then that most probably is the problem also the resistor underneath the coil hope this helps regards Jim
