Question about 1988 Ford F 150

2 Answers

I have a 1988 ford 4x4 five speed 302. I had a guy put a motor in it but he says my fuel pumps keep pumping gas and never stop. He thinks its the brain box. Does the brain box have to match the motor or the truck.

Yes it does and your so called chancer of a mechanic should know how to cure it by rewiring the pump relay through the ignition switch ,If he doesnt know how to cure it in a few minutes work then dont pay him ,simple ,enough unskilled cowboys out their giving the motor game a bad enough name without help from you --honestly can anyone work as a solicitor without a degree and membership of the appropiate organisation ?? yet any person can set themselves up as a garage and put peoples lives at risk .

1988 bronco II vapor locking?


Just a guess here, but check your ignition coil. Make sure it's mounted nice and tight to the block. a bad ground on a coil will mess with you bad. other than that, I'd check and replace your fuel filter.

A guy just told me that there is a internal fuel pump and a external fuel pump on my 1988 ford ranger xlt 2.9 4x4. is this true?


In some applications, yes there is two.


On the 2.3L and the 2.9L engines to model year 1988 the electric fuel pump system used on these EFI engines consisted of two fuel pumps: a low pressure boost pump mounted in the fuel tank, and a high pressure fuel pump mounted on the frame rail.
The low pressure electric fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and is a part of the fuel gauge sending unit.

My son ran my truck out of gas. Its a 1988 F250


first, is this a diesel? if it is there is a line or oring loose allowing it to **** air--diesels dont like leaks like that and there is a whole procedure for voiding the air from the lines on diesels. next could be the in tank pump and also does it have duel tanks? does the duel tank switch work? running out of fuel with in tank pumps can burn up the pump (the fuel itself provides lubrication and cooling for the pump, gas or diesel) and of course check the filter, running out and refilling could have disturbed trash in the tank

It is your fuel pump it has to put out at least 30psi at the fuel rail. Regardless of how much gas you think its getting its not enough. Replace the fuel pump.

1988 ford truck f-150 xlt lariat cant get current to fuel pump


Have you checked the 'inertia switch' which in the event of an accident shuts off the fuel supply to prevent a fire . It's usually located in the cab on pass. side. Some models have one reset button, some 2 which have to be pressed at the same time. If that's not it, here's how the power to the pump SHOULD work, you will have to follow the path to see where it stops. When you turn the key on it turns on the EEC power relay on, this relay then provides power to the PCM (power control module) and the control side of the fuel pump relay. Power for the fuel pump is supplied through a fuse link or high current fuse attached to the starter solenoid (battery side). From the fuse link or high current fuse current flows thru the fuel pump relay and inertia switch to the fuel pump. The fuel pump relay is controlled by the PCM. When the ignition switch is turned on the fuel pump will operate, if the switch is NOT turned to start position, the PCM will shut off the fuel pump off after 1 second. This is to avoid flooding the engine when it is not running, just key on. So check out to see if you have a fuse link or a high current fuse and if they are blown.
