Engine Mechanical problem
1988 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200, 00 miles

live in texas. Went to coast for weekend stopped at whataburger tryed to start truck. Turned over fine at first, then sounded lik e it was catching and it would stop turning over. If I turned the key, it would turn over for a min. Sis's boyfriend came over and said to check the spark plugs, so we took them out and the valves were full of gas he said that the motor was full of gas because even the vacum lines had gas in them. We took all spark plugs out, unpluged the coil and turned the motor over and LOTS of gas came out. HEEEELLLLLPPPPP!

Do you
have the same problem?

First, drain oil and replace oil filter, if the crankcase fills with gas, either the fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail is no good(fuel in vac line), or injector(s) are stuck open and gas is pumping into the cylinders, this washes the walls in gas, and removes the oil needed for compression, Replace plugs, oil and filter, replace the fuel pressure regulator to start with.

Was this
