new fuel pump, new distributor, and new ignition coil. still won't start.


Asked by DragonTrain Oct 12, 2014 at 06:44 PM about the 1995 Ford E-150 XL Club Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

new fuel pump, new distributor (definitely broke before) and new ignition coil. still won't
start. she would run like nothing is wrong when she'd go. but would die 6 blocks down the
road. no putter or stutter. just would cut out quietly. she does have a small oil and a small
transmission leak. fluids are all at good levels. any thoughts?

I know ya had all that work done, but ya gotta check for spark and fuel. you are missing one or both. check relays,especially one for the ecm.

where would my fuel be getting caught up? i don't think it would be fuel because of how she runs when she goes... should i be able to put my light tester to the ignition coil and receive a signal? i got one from the plug that goes to the ignition coil.


i replaced spark plugs and wires about 60,000 miles ago

yes from the wire to the distributor. you said it wouldn';t start, so i just thought start from ground zero. spray carb cleaner in the intake while a helper cranks. if it fires, yer not gettn fuel. if it doesn;t fire maybe no spark


MAP sensor!! Unplugged it and she started right up. Plugged it in and she started again. Replaced it just to be sure.

Check icm that is my last result for my truck Chevy Silverado 1500 pump wires distributor battery and ignition coil all changed only thing left is icm
