Re: 1999 5.4L dies right after start
I re-checked everything and could not find anything un-plugged, I had a friend here today and started the van, it started right up and died, the first words that came out fo his mouth were "it's just not getting any gas" so i suppose that would be the start of the whole conversation here, it is just not getting any gas, now please stay with me on this one...
In order for it to actually start, there has to be some fuel pushed into the motor (now I am not being technical here), so somehow even a little bit of fuel is being sent to the motor, does this rule out the possibility of it (the problem) being the fuel pump or filter in any way?
Does the fact that it actually starts rule out any components and highlights perhaps more specific possibilities? I would assume that is for example the fuel pump was bad then we would not be able to start up at all right?... So what else can we try to do?
I want to point out that most of my successful repairs have being accomplished with the help I get from here so I am very thankful for any and every piece of insight no matter how insignificant it may seem (fuse,realy.etc.),,, Thanks much.
