Replaceed the steering cloumn on my 96 Ford f150. The old steering wheel had an air bag. This one don't. Was woundering if the one without an air bag cause it not to start?
engine light on runs fine code reads p1351 have gray module in now cant get the correct one which is black when ordering the black module the part number on module is different from what is on the box the box is motorcraft but the module has nothing but a different part number on it the last to letters on it why does it not say motorcraft as well?
Left fender and bumper were damaged in an accident.it's been repaired. Now a.c. compressor does not engage when control knobs turned. No drop in voltage either so it doesn't work. Repair shop overlooked replacing my windshield fluid box and didn't adjust the head light. So wonder if they messed something up on a.c. or broke something. It worked great before the accident.

I've checked about everything that I believe could cause this, with no luck, has new fuel pressure reg., new map sensor, new plugs, plug wires, cap and rotor, both fuel pumps and tanks are new, changed fuel filter. Just can't figure out why codes po172,po175 are always coming back, and the trim is always -25 and never moves, even when I go to the graphics there is no movement or fluxuation and the truck runs good, exhaust seems strong though. Any help would be appreciated, Thank You
Does the motor have to be removed
turned key over to start the truck and heard clicking now will not start.. Battery good. Power to starter but still when I turn the key nothing
Started out going dead but would crank right up. Then I had to switch from rear to front tank and it would fire right up and go dead when I put it into gear but when I switched back to the rear tank it ran fine for a while. Replaced fuel tank and pump. No change. Kept getting worse having to turn it over and over and over before it would crank. Finally died and had towed to mechanic. Replaced distributor and ran fine for about three weeks and started again. Replaced distributor again. Immediately went dead. Then it bucks as if though losing fire. Fuel pressure remains constant when it dies. After it has a bucking fit and I make it home, it cranks and runs fine for about 70 miles and starts bucking. Sometimes I can disconnect the positive cable for a minute then put it back on and it cranks up and runs fine for a while. Things that I have replaced, battery cable ends, fuel tank selector switch, ignition control module, computer, idle air control valve, batter cable ends. Still intermittently and violently bucks and dies. I have the dash board completely torn apart looking for a short in the wiring on the firewall. I would appreciate any suggestions as I the truck has spent more than ten weeks several different shops and I simply cannot get it figured out. I have only managed to get it to act up in front of a mechanic one time who said he was going to run some tests in the morning but again, it cranks right up and drives fine when it is cold so no dice. The truck is not throwing any codes either. Thanks in advance.
