What is going on with my truck when I try to start it but the ignition stays engaged but it does not start? This happens off and on.

Asked by atrask45 Dec 04, 2016 at 01:07 PM about the 2009 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My husband recently changed out the fuel pump and now it acts like it's out of gas.  Now the starter or ignition system acts like it wants to start, but it doesn't.

My 2010 F 150 was doing the same thing. When you turn the key to start, it does not start, but the key stays engaged and has to be manually turned back to off. Have the EVAP system checked on the vehicle. That was the problem with my truck. Also, when filling the gas tank, when the nozzle clicks off, do not force feed it with more clicks. That is what I did and it causes liquid gasoline to be forced into the EVAP system damaging components.
