How do you check your coils is there a photo that shows you how? or a video, web site

Its part of the electrical system. Check plugs, wires, gaps, and coil packs (on top of the engine, will have 3 cylindrical things with 6 wire (two from each) coming off of them) Is one plug not getting a spark? or are a few of them not getting a spark. if its one or two of them, see if they lead to the same coil, if so, its the coil pack (not sure if you can replace one coil, or if the whole pack is bad) look for messed up wires and corroded plugs/wire boots.

Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.


This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

Hello! This is a difficult trouble to nail down...Do you have a multimeter and a wee bit of experience using it? If so corrosion of ground wiring is a known fault on your vehicle...Set meter to the X1 ohm scale...Place one lead on the top center of the negative battery terminal...Place the other on bare metal of the chassis (fender bolt)...record reading...Leave lead on battery and move other lead to bare metal on the engine...Record reading...In both readings meter must read zero ohms (dead short or full deflection on a analog meter)...This is just a start but needs to be eliminated up front...Send results...Guru...saailer

05 f-250 will not start


I sometimes get an air lock. Loosen the cap on the filter housing on top of the engine. You may hear a hissing noise that sounds like air escaping. When you have the cap off turn the key on for a few seconds.( DO NOT CRANK THE ENGINE) This will fill the fuel bowl. Put the lid back on and try to start again. You may have to do this a couple times but it does get air locked at times. Wash off the excess fuel that may splash out before starting the engine.

Dies after running about 2 minutes


It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.
