Default Help! 1995 Ford F150 "Fuel Injector or Fuel Pump"?

I can normally start my truck and it will go for about 1/2 mile to one mile and then it may sputter because of the fuel either not getting to where it needs to go. Sometimes it will start going after the fuel is moving through again or sometimes it's best to turn it off and it always restarts.

FYI: I had just changed the Fuel Filter, thinking it may have solved the problem

Any ideas?

Was wondering is there any CEL action? Right now a code or two might be helpful.

Do a fuel pressure check.

CEL= check engine light. Is it on or has it come on at any time? Check the computer for codes, this will tell you how:
http://www.f150forum.com/f10/how-retrieve-trouble-codes-obdi-10907/
Checking the fuel pressure will tell you if the pumps are working correctly, if the pressure is within specifications, if it's losing pressure when it shouldn't. You need a fuel pressure gauge for fuel injected systems. A gauge for carbureted systems doesn't read high enough pressures.

Default Question

The Engine light has gone on, does this mean this link can help fix the problem or would it be best to disconnect the battery for a few minutes?

Disconnecting the battery won't fix anything. That will just erase the codes and then they will come right back because something is wrong. You need to get the codes from the computer and post them here so we can figure out what is going on with the truck. The link tells you how to get the codes.

That is true but I would read the codes clear them and then re-read the codes. You never know if some on disconnected a sensor with the engine running and set a code. Hard codes will reset. This is a procedure most shops don't follow. This will save you alot of grief and moneyy spent on parts you don't need.

david58, you latched on to a thread that is 4 months old. It happens to us all, so hang in there, sounds like you are more familiar with the Fords than the Forum. Hear from you later.
