Check your starter solenoid, its located on the fenderwell, easy way to do it is put ignition switch in start position use a jumper wire and connect the two large terminals, if it starts quickly remove the jumper, then replace the starter solenoid, if nothing happens replace the ignition module.

SOURCE: f-150 4.9 lt .once it starts, blowing heavy black smoke

Sounds like its flooding(excess fuel)Try squeezing the main fuel line enough to allow enough fuel through for engine to run smoothly if that improves running of engine either fuel pump needs replacement or pressure relief valve has failed or has no vacuum to activate it.Dirty or failing injectors can also cause your problem,try putting a can/bottle of injector cleaner in fuel tank to see if it improves running of engine.Air flow meter can also be an issue.A few potential reasons foryour problem and too hard to lock it down to a single cause without the vehicle being in front of me to do the appropriate tests so have just provided the basic causes and hope your able to take it from here and solve the problem.Good luck

Flooding starting


Check fuel pressure. You may have a bad fuel pressure regulator. Pressure may be too high, or the regulator diaphragm may have failed-if it is vacuum operated, pull off the vacuum line-if any evidence of gas in the line, the regulator has failed, and letting gas get sucked into the engine through the vacuum line. That could explain the gas smell and the flooding.

Changed distributor cap and now van wont start did not have firing order . we now have correct firing order. van was possibly flooded from checking firing order. now carborator is smoking and engine wont...


I would pull the plugs and let the gas into the cylinders to dry out , you may have a hydrolock engine after putting so much gas into it , recheck the firing order to be sure is OK ususlly when you see a carb backfiring and smoking the firing order is not right

Getting gas and fire but not starting


Change the gas. That gas is no good after a year of sitting,probably has water in it. Hopefully it didn't laquer the fuel pump pick-up screen.
