Fuel Pump on a 2005 F 150 Crew cab V8

Recommended Posts

anyone been having any problems like i am. I went out to start my truck yesterday, and it wont start, but it dont sound like the fuel pump is working?

How much is this job going to cost me! I think i have a buddy that can do it, but is it worth the money taken it to a dealership being i am out of warentee!

Any Advice!

there should be a test port on the fuel rail. carefully press in the schrader (if there is pressure fuel will spray out!!!) If little to nothing comes out then use ford tool #HAMMER and tap the fuel tank in the center while somebody tries to start it. If it starts your on the right track in thinking the fuel pump is bad!

When you are trying to start it (cranking over engine) is there any security red lights rapidly blinking in the dash cluster?

Do you use more than one key to try and start it? Just a hunch!

BNS, there isnt a shrader valve on this truck. It has a sensor on the fuel rail that you can monitor fuel pressure with a scan tool , or you will need to adapt a fuel pressure gauge in line either at the fuel rail line, or at the fuel filter. This pump is ran from a fuel pump driver module, and the fpdm is more common to go bad then an actual fuel pump, but it can still be a fuel pump. To test this system at home, there is 2 different ways to do it, ck for voltage out of the fpdm to the pump, if it is above 10 volts and the pump isnt running, then its a pump, if there is less then 8 volts then it is the fpdm.. The other way to test it is to jump 12 volts and a ground to the pump, if it starts then it was the fpdm, if the pump doesnt run after jumping power and ground to it, its a pump.

I feel for you, and am in a similar predicament. I'm at 98k on my 02 Dakota. Had some issues where it takes 3-4 seconds to start when cold. If I primed it in the "on" position first, it would start right up. Thought I had 2000 miles left on my extended warranty. They were fixing a window and the starting problem for I thought the $100 warranty deductable.

Douuughhh! There was also a 7 year trigger on the warranty that expired on April 1st. So had I brought it in 10 days ago (been happening for weeks), it would have been covered. Anyway, long story short I need a fuel pump. Talked them down at the dealership to $800, but still seems real expensive to me. The whole sending unit needs replacement.

Hope you're not in for a fuel pump. Good luck.

Any time you can get out the door for less than a $1,000 your doing pretty good. Figuring the cost of the tow, Diagnostic time, the Parts, and labor there aren't to many that leave for under a grand!

I had the guys in the shop here take a look at it and thankfully it wasnt the fuel pump, it was some switch that forsome odd reason got turned off!

Everything is all cool!

Airjer,

Touche! Not to hijack...but last week I had both front bearings replaced and both IWE accuators (sp?) replaced on the front end of my 04 F150...

parts, labor, diagnostics, etc = $999.00

Very rare that pops off on it's own. Was someone messing with ya?

And why did you say it had fuel whistlegrin

could it be anything else if its not starting and we have fuel?

I have the truck at work, and im off today, so i wont know anything until tommorrow!

Did you just mean you had gas in the tank, after Air told you to check for fuel pressure at the valve onthe fuel rail???? gringrin

With the size of some of the pot holes I've seen I wouldn't doubt the inertia switch would go off. I believe it's under the passenger side kick panel if it happens again.

With as many Fords as I have seen towed into the dealers I have worked at, maybe once have I seen one I was dealing with have an issue like BNS had confused and that was a faulty switch in the end (I think)

Once the inertia switch is tripped, you do not go far. wink

I went out to start my truck yesterday, and it wont start, but it dont sound like the fuel pump is working?

Very rare I would say this would happen, unless some one bumped into the truck with another vehicle or someone was playing a little prank winkgrin

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
