Hi,
did you find out why your F150 wasn't starting? Was it related to the buzzing fuel pumps?
thx
I never had a answer about the pumps buzzing to long before star up
try checking fuel pressure regulator and fuel pressure at the pumps
got a 92 with same problem what did u do
Im taking it to a different shop Friday I will let you know
The ECU in the driver kick panel is the problem. If you take it out and open it up you'll see a blue capacitor has gone bad and may be hanging by only 1 leg. It is rated at 47 mfd and 16V. You can replace it with one from Radio Shack as we did yesterday. Now pump runs about 5 seconds and the truck starts right up. The computer will not give a SPOUT signal(spark out) until the pump turns off.
I have a 1993 thats doing the same thing Iv spent a lot of money trying to fix it still doing it If you find out please let me know [Iv took it to shops they say I just dont know]
try checking fuel pressure regulator and fuel pressure at the pumps
fuel pressure is 50 Iv changed the regulator Im showing a 213 code which means loss of spark Im ckecking that out now
