Truck turns over but will not crank

Asked by May 11, 2017 at 03:53 PM about the 2003 Ford F-150 XLT 4WD LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 03 ford f50 5.4l rand out of oil. While it was
sitting in a parking lot. I came outside while the
truck was still running and my odometer was
nothing but dashes. I tryed putting it in reverse but
it would not move so I kill d the truck and it
wouldn't crank I added oil and tryed again , nothing.
I drained the oil and there was no metal shavings in
the oil. Checked all the fuses and they were all
good. I turn the key in the ignition but can't hear the
fuel pump kick on. Could it be the fuel pump it's s
of or is it something hung a lot more serious???

Place a large wrench on the crank shaft pulley on the bottom of the engine and try to turn it by hand. If it is too hard to turn, remove all the spark plugs and try again. It it does not turn, or turning is very difficult after removing the plugs, the engine is probably fried.
