Did this problem start after you changed the plugs, wires, cap & rotor or did you have it before? It won't show a code if your wires are one hole off on the distributer.

95 f150 starting problem

My 95 has done this a couple of times, my mechanic thinks the starter is slowly going. The first time it happened, it was night and I saw sparks coming from the starter, to the passenger side of the engine compartment. It's a pain when it doesn't work, but it is infrequent enough for me that its not worth replacing yet.

95 f150 starting problem

two things to check:

1) check the cable and connectors between battery and starter, they corrode quite easy, I had the same problem.

2) these trucks have a tendency to destroy catylitic convertors, and when they do, they start to plug up your exhaust system, gradually until the truck wil not start anymore. You will probably be noticing (or possibly not) a small, but continuing lack of horsepower as the exhaust is slowly starting to struggle with dispersing the gases. The funny thing is, emissions testing looks good usually in these cases, as the polution is minimal and "stuck" in the exhaust system.

I actually got it to give me a code. It came up with a 542, so I guess I will have to replace some fuel pumps, unless there is something else I should check first. Any ideas?

95 f150 starting problem

The code I got told me i had low fuel pressure, so I went ahead and changed both fuel pumps. The truck fired up after that first time I canked on it, but after driving it around and parking it for about 10 minutes or so it wouldn't start again just like before. It just sits there and cranks like its not getting fuel,spark, or air, or at least one of those. Someone had mentioned the cats might be clogged, would that prevent the motor from starting? If so how do I check them. If anyone has any other ideas please let me know. My neighbor really wants to buy the truck, but i wont sell him something that will not start ocassionally.

Is it possible that the problem is the ignition control module?

I have that exact same problem. My truck is a 1995 F-150 5.0 AODE 2WD. I have replaced almost every sensor and numerous other parts on the truck and it still has the starting problem. It does seem to be worse when the truck is hot/warm or it is a hot day. I would greatly appreciate any info on this as well.

The ignition control module seemed to fix it, it hasnt messed up and I have been driving it alot the past few days. The part is located under the hood on the drivers side fender right next to the firewall. It cost about $50 from Oreileys auto parts, you will also need a special tool that cost about $5 to remove the screws (a normal socket wont fit).

I am having the same problem with my 95 F150 300. Last posting on this topic recommended changing the Igntion Control Module. TexasGuy or Chocolate moose - did it work? Does anybody else recommend changing this Module?
