Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles
Problem could possibly be Electrical or Engine related. Truck won't idle, instantly dies. If given gas, it'll stay running. Fires right off after cranking over maybe twice, but won't even try to stay running. Relays, filter, and fuel pump have been checked and replaced. Looking for opinions before I hit a mechanic up. My only thoughts is possibly the chip in the key gone bad and is cutting the fuel off due to Anti theft, because the fuel is cut off instantly as if it's electrical. Do they have a fuel pressure regulator that could have gone bad and isn't regulating the right amount to the engine and needing to be given gas? Ideas?
have the same problem?
