Question Starting issues

This is my first post. I got a '00 F150 w/4.6. When cold, it cranks up fires up and then stalls. It will only keep running if I push on the gas pedal a little. Then it will run on it's own after a half a minute or so. The only code i got is a p1000 and I drive it enough that I don't think I should have that code.When it's warm it's ok. ???? Thanks

Re: Starting issues

P1000 means the system hasn't run all of it's tests. Maybe a fuse is out for the keep alive memory to the PCM. Maybe the fuse is blown. I think it's #2 under the dash.

Re: Starting issues

Yeah, I was thinking one of the temp sensors but the KAM sounds good too but shouldn't it still stay running. I mean like when you change or disconnect the battery,you would have a p1000 until you drive through all the cycles but it will still start and keep running. Is there an affordable scan tool to tell you if a certain sensor is messed up? Thanks guys

Re: Starting issues

Most of ther scanners that give live data are costly. If the system is starting anew every time it starts, it will run poor. On some Dodges, after unhooking the battery, it won't even idle without holding the throttle for 5 minutes.

Re: Starting issues

What's a good affordable scanner that gives live data while you drive? I see some on E-bay for like $80.00 but they don't tell the whole story in their ads. They say this and that and More... Well the more part is what I'm interested in.I already got most of what they list.They don't answer questions as they are not mechanics, just sellers of their products.I bet most of them don't even know how to check their tire pressures. Thanks

Re: Starting issues

I'm not familiar with some of those kinds. Mine was $1400 new. Have you checked the fuses?

confused Re: Starting issues

I must be losing my mind. I took off the plastic cover down low and to the left of the steering column and I didn't see a fuse in there. The cover even said FUSES!
When the Turkey is baking I'll open the hood and check those fuses.

Re: Starting issues

I found my mind and the fuses. Darn! A cover under the cover for the fuses. That's a first in over 40 yrs. They're all good. I try to do the driving cycle and still get the p1000 and the truck runs flat. It'll go but it runs like I have 5000# in the bed. Maybe it's new computer time?
