Based on what you described, the engine need the fuel to run and obviously it didn't have it. The pump can turn, but it can not deliver a correct rate to built up the required pressure for injector to shoot out. or if it can the injector module didn't open the injectors to have fuel shooting out. Here are things related to no fuel problem, and need to be checked in the following order: - Injector Module. Read my other posts on this subject. - Injectors - Fuel accumulator. - Fuel filter. - Fuel pump Good luck.

If you can't hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position trying to build up fuel pressure, it is most likely either a voltage issue at the fuel pump or you need to replace the fuel pump. Have you checked your fuel filter? Try turning on the key without engaging the starter and see if you hear the whine of the fuel pump.

you may also check your fuel pressure module...it is located behind your throttle body, near the firewall. I was able to isolate a vacume leak in that same area with the same symtoms before starting the car, although mine runs an idle ok, it hesitates and will not run smoothly down the road...in my case, it still may also be a failing fuel pump...the best analogy to describe is like sucking on a pop straw that is cracked, you can see the pop comming up the straw, but it's not enough to quench the thirst

The fuel pump relay is what is causing the fuel pump to remain on, it has a green socket and is under the hood next to the fuel injection system computer relay which has a brown socket, replace the relay with the green socket . Could you please read your problem post, you say and i quote "engine will not start if time with gas into throttle body engine will run lots of black smoke" this is confusing and not sure what you mean. I would venture a guess and say you have a problem with the Ignition Module and the distributor stator which can cause this type of symptom, the distributor module (at Ford we call it the "TFI" module) is held on the side of the distributor body by 2 tiny Torx head screws, the distributor stator requires that the distributor be removed and then the distributor drive gear pressed off and the distributor shaft removed before the stator can be removed, it is also held inside the distributor by a couple of torx head screws the same same size as the ignition module screws. The reason I suggest the TFI and stator be replaced is that if the parts are failing they cause the engine to fire at the wrong time so this can cause a rought run and many other weird symptoms, I am a retired Ford dealer master tech and have seen this dozens of times on the GT 5.0 Liter V8.
