Question about Ford F-150

1 Answer

My 04/05 f150 lariat wont start. Wont even crank over unless I cross it over ot the soleniod, but cranks over very hard, like it's really working to turn over; occasionally will turn over at t

Guy I bought it from had recently bought it from a mutual friend who apparently said the the truck was still running fine...But no. Guy I bought it from got it out of impound yard, had it towed to Ford dealership to have new key cut and programmed to truck, costing him hundreds of dollars.lhe also put a brand new starter in it himself, costing $260 to $280. Still did nothing for him, so he figured it was siezed, also because he apparently added atleast a few courts of engine oil.and figured someone ran it out of oil and caused it to sieze. Anyone, I bought the truck, and it isnt siezed, because I can make it turn over, even though it has to fight for hope. Lol It's all I've got right now though, and I need it A.S.A.P. for work;so please help me somehow to find the problem and fix it.

Check voltage at trigger wire going to the solenoid. There should not be any voltage there except when the key is in start positon...if there is the ignition switch may be bad.

03 F150 lariat supercrew 5.4 liter, have replaced coil pack 1 and 2. Truck started but got down the road still miss firing .now won't start but it sounds like fuel pump wont kick on? Any suggestions?

crankshaft position sensor maybe , the pcm / ecm - engine computer won't turn on the fuel pump if it doesn't see a input signal from the crank sensor . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop an have it diagnosed .

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay

wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?

Have it checked out, have the cooling system "pressure checked" and see where the coolant went. When they find that, it may explain the other problems.
