Have you checked the fuel pressure. If its fuel injection it has to have a certain pressure on the fuel rail for the injectors to work properly. The fuel regulators are known to go bad on the ford 300's.

Is the fuel pump relay sending power to the pump, do you have normal fuel pressure at the injectors, and are the injectors getting power and pulse from the computer ?

Wont start , filled gas , changed plugs, can start with ether to airbox but wont continue running


If it wants to start with either then that says there is a fuel delivery problem.
Can you hear the fuel pump run? Maybe run for a few seconds when the key is first turned on.
Has it been run low on gas? Bellow 1/4 often or even empty? Those are good ways to kill a fuel pump.

Wont start... there is no power to the fuel pump when you first turn the key on but when you crank there is power. if you hit it with ether it will start and run. then starts every time. if you let it sit...


if this is the vortech motor i have seen where the fuel pump is not putting out enough pressure but will run when you hit it with ether so i whould change pump first.

1993 Chevy Astro Mini Van not starting


If You can start the vehicle off ether only then you have a fuel issue. the pump is working and the fuel pressure regulator is too. so either the injectors are not getting an electrical signal to open and close of possibly, Your oil sending unit is defective and has shut down your fuel system (a safety).
