Question about Ford E-250

1 Answer

Engine will not start occasionaly. I have replaced the plugs and wires, had the fuel pump checked, It will start when it wants to, it is just random though. It will run fine when it starts too, if it sits and not diven it will start over and over again, it is not until I drive it, then park again that it will begin this problem with not starting. I may try to start it 20-100 times not all at once either, then it will start up with no problems of any sort. I have been told several different possible scenarios it could be and I am just trying to hone in on this issue. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated, Thank you for your time, Phil Jackson

How to check coil packs and spark plugs wire with a multimeter. ..having random/ multiple misfire P0300...need to know their spec? 97 Cadillac Deville, 4.6 engine/Northstar


I don't think you really understand what this fault code means, it means that likely all the engine cylinders are misfiring at random no set pattern, not any particular cylinder. I would start with checking for engine vacuum leaks like the intake manifold gasket. that is all I can say since you provided no make, model or year and engine type and size information.

Random misfire with code PO300 07 Nissan titan. Put new spark plugs in and a fuel pump still hase vary bad miss


P0300 is random misfire code P0301 would be cyl # 1 etc.
With the odb2 scanner at erase codes turn the engine off. With the key in the run position erase the codes. Run the diagnostics again. If you still have P0300 code Check the plug wires. Loss of compression will cause misfire but it would not be random.

My 1998 ford contour sport will not turn over. I replaced the battery and plugs. It fired right up. Then the next day it tries to start but won't crank.


sounds like a bad cam/crank sensor, or bad inertia switch. Ford trucks usually have a switch on the inside firewall that shuts off fuel pump in the event of a wreck. These switches go out occasionaly and will not allow vehichle to start

How about the pick up coil in the distributor? A trick we used to use back in the day was to tap the distributor housing with a hammer, key word tap. If the engine missed or stalled than the pick-up coil was replaced.

Engine will crank but not start


It sounds like a loose wire. Not the starter, if the starter cranks the engine over, it has to be the circuit for the ignition, Somewhere in there, I don't know about a relay, but maybe a loose wire to the coil, plug wires shorted out? Low on oil? Fuel pump cutting out? But if the code came up with circuit, I would be looking at the wires. Check it out.

If the engine will not fire on starting fluid the problem lies elsewhere in ignition. Spark plugs etc. computer has a nofault safety start relay. meaning no spark , no fuel

RANDOM STARTING PROBLEMS; MOTOR SEEMS TO BE TURNING OVER FINE AND TRYS TO START; IF YOU WAIT AWHILE ALMOST ALWAYS START 1999 TIBURON


you may also have a plugged fuel filter if crank sensor and temp sensor turn out ok on the ohmmeter.
Next thing you will want to do is check for spark in each cylinder. You can pull one spark plug out, replug it back in to plug wire, lay on engine block, 1/4" form metal and the probe of plug, have someone else crank car, while you watch for spark. Then replace plug and wire and move on to then next. If you have one bad one, replace plug wire, if two or 3, it could be bad coil packs, if no spark, then it would be faulty module or crank sensor.

If spark is good, then you will want to check for fuel. You should have a fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail, with a rag, place over port, and press in valve to see if there is pressure. If no pressure, either fuel filter is plugged or fuel pressure regulator is faulty. As long as you can hear fuel pump turn on each time the ignition is placed in on position. If not, then relay or pump could be faulty.

Starts Occasionaly but not all the time


Check the primary and secondary resistance on your coil, also check the resistance of the plug wires and verify the spark plug gap.
