Question about 2002 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

Occasionally wont start

Twice now my truck will turn over but not start for several minutes. Once I just drove it and shut it off for 5 minutes and it would not restart and today the truck was cold at my house when it occured so it has nothing to do with hot/cold. After several minutes of repeatedly attempting to start it, shutting the key off, and attempting to start it again it will finally start. It was two weeks between incidents with no problems in between. Only 34,000 miles on the truck. The dealer could not "reproduce" the problem. (but they could charge me $100) This is frustrating.

    I guess the only way to do that is wait till it happens again and dont mess with it untill it starts again but rather have it towed to a shop so they can see what its doing when its doing it.

    i had the same problem with my 2002 f150, the problem was, i cant really remember the exact problem but something with the dash had to be replaced. i orginally thought it was the fuel pump going out, spent 900 to fix that, it didnt solve the problem. i took it to the dealership, some part had blown the ignition and had to replace a part in the dash, ended up costing about 700 bucks. it ended up being eletrical

    my best advice is to hook it up to a diagnostic scanner it sounds like a ecm problem. you can take it to a small independant shop and it won't cost you a 100 dollars. trying to guess is just a waste of time and not a fair solution. honestly it could be several things and unless i was hands on it would be difficult for me to pin point the exact problem. this is the best I can do at the moment. good luck

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...


Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Does your car have a anti-theft system that uses a resistor in the key? I have had several instances when I tried to start the my '95 GM auto, runs perfect normally, but nothing. I traced it back to the key. Probably not always put in correctly.

1998 mustang 3.8 v6 will not start.


First I would check the fuel shut off switch, push down on the red button, switch is located in trunk. Make sure you are getting fuel and fuel pump fuse is ok. You can remove fuel line from fuel filter and turn key on to see if fuel comes out of hose and also get a glass jar and take a fuel sample to see if anything is in fuel. Sounds like you may be having a fuel problem.

2002 chevy suburban shutting off whil driving in extreme heat


I had the same problem with mine. I installed a fuel pressure gauge, and drove around until the problem started. The truck should be running between 48 to 56 lbs. of fuel pressure. Mine ran at idle at 42lbs. , not even high enough. Drove it for about 20 minutes, and it started to stumble. Fuel pressure dropped to 30lbs, 20 lbs - then all the way down to 2lbs. I shut it off, and it would not start back up. 30 seconds later, I turned the key and it came up to 10lbs. press. 10 more seconds 20lbs. After almost a minute, it came up to 42 lbs. started and I drove away. I replaced the fuel pump assemb. on 7/3/2008. Drove it around,and the problem is gone. Mine is a flex fuel, and the pump retails for $668.00. I did find a AC Delco pump for $221.00. I hope this helps.

Car wont start after shut off


Probably your distributor cap or rotor, also check the spark plugs and spark plugs wires. This may happen when , after a certain amount of time, the distributor becomes to hot, or the wires, and then a huge resistance is built. Did you notice that on a long distance your car would shut off than you have to let it cool down before it starts back ? On oldder cars it's a pretty common problem.

Wont always start


Did anyone check the clutch interlock switch? It's possible the position is out of adjustment. My 2008 SRT4 is right at the bottom. If you don't push the clutch ALL the way down, it won't start.
