F 150 starting problem

Asked by Mar 04, 2018 at 05:00 PM about the 2000 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2000 f 150 will start and run for a week or 2 then
suddenly won't start. Has fuel pressure, spark and
cranks over. Some times a week or 2 of sitting will
do the trick, sometimes it will sit for 2 months and
still not start. I have noticed if the battery goes
dead while it is sitting and I hook up the jumper
cables to it it will start. How long it will keep
starting seems to be up to the truck. Might last a
day, might last a week or 2. I need ideas, I am not a
mechanic but do have a relatively good grasp of
turning wrenches. Any help is appreciated.
