Question about 2002 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

I recently bought it - with 'check engine' light on. It shortly after developed intermittent starting problem: the engine starts beautifully and runs for exactly 3 seconds... and shuts down. A few seconds later, it will start fine again and ...you know how this story goes. Now it seems to be a permanent condition. I'm guessing my 'check engine' code will reveal all, but good grief...!

Check engine light WILL reveal all - any good parts store can do an OBII scan for you and most like Autozone,Advance, etc... will do it free. Who knows how long previous owner drove w/light on - and a general rule of thumb - "longer the light is on, the bigger the problem gets".

My 1998 citation developed some kind of fuel fault. Check engine light came on, this shortly after filling with fuel whilst engine running. Oil pres temp and volts remain good but shortly after that e


First, never gas up while the engine is running it's a fire hazard to you and everyone else at the station. Did you check air to fuel ratio? Is car getting enough of each? The check engine light came on at gas station because of the car running, just like a loose gas cap can trigger it.

2002 f250 7.3 intermittent no crank, no power going to starter. when it does start, cannot shift out of park, kills engine. Starts and drives from neutral as it should. Will not hotstart at all.


Neutral safety switch is tore up or the wires are melted and shorting. Look on the side of the tranny for the part shown below. Also check the pins on the switch connection.

hi it sounds like a sensor may be faulty or getting worn, luckily you dont need equipment to check codes, look under the dash on drivers side and you will see 2 small black plugs close together plug them in with the car off but key on acc and the check light will flash codes, slow then fast. for example if 4 times slow then 2 times fast it means code 42 then just google it for the code meanings

2002 Subaru Forester misses/runs poorly with slow acceleration when hot with a/c on especially after running 50-60mph on interstate. Problem is intermittant. Runs fine with excellent acceleration...


I have the same problem. But my check engine light comes on when this occurs. The car runs fine otherwise. The problem manifests when it's hot out and I've been driving for a while with the A/C on. When I stop somewhere (like the supermarket), shop, and get back in my car. It starts fine but when I put it in gear to go, it's extremely sluggish for a few seconds and the check engine light comes on. Then is runs fine but the check engine light remains on. The next day when I start it, the check engine light is not on. Also, I recently had the head gasket replaced. I took it back into the shop the first time the check engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said everything checks fine. He re-set the light saying to keep an eye on it and bring it back in if the check engine light comes back on. It ran fine for 1.5 weeks and now this problem has started to occur.

Did you find anything out dwbradway? I wish I had a solution for you but I just have the same kind of problem. Any help would be appreciated!

1990 Dodge Dynasty trouble starting


To be honest,sell it. You're getting in to more electronic issues than the car is worth.I can tell you the z1 circuit is shot,that's the main engine ground under the battery tray. That's just the begining of the electrical issues.

For a short term solution, you could run a small electric heater within the engine compartment which will keep everything nice and warm for your early morning starts.
I remember my father using an extension trouble light and leaving it under the engine compartment during the winters.
