Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ran fine to its resting place where I
shut it off, but left the radio on for a
minute until I smelled electrical like
smoke. Saw a very faint trace of smoke
coming from top of engine cover or
under dash, not sure. I immediately
shut off the ignition and unplug my
phone charger. Couldn't locate the
problem so I tried to start it and it
cranked fine but it would not fire up.
Not even a fart, nothing. Any takers on

ford right ? listen for the fuel pump to prime the system when you hit the key , check for spark and fusible links , fuses under the hood , black or toasty wires

Yes Ford Econoline. Got it narrowed down to no spark. But still cannot find any burnt wiring.


coil , ignition module ,?

Okay, to those following this, the engine computer burned up. The shop did a complete Diagnostic and could not find any other problems. They attributed it to old age. Final bill estimated to be about $500.


O.K. thanks
