View Full Version : New Truck Problem...
04-13-2008, 04:23 PM
Ok newer problem.. aside from my truck not starting in the first place, I was able to get the engine to turn and turn with no such luck starting... now all i get is a click, when i go to start the engine, without it turning over.. I know it's not the battery, because a) it was fairly charged, and b) I had it connected via jumper cables to my car, to make sure... so, what are my options on it being now?
My guesses, starter or starter solenoid...
Anyone else figure that be true?

sounds like starter related...could be solenoid
Luv to be on the GO

Lemme tell you a story, the only time in my life it worked out perfect.
I had put a new engine in a truck, big block Ford with a carburettor. I filled the carb with full with a little bottle I always keep handy, and I had set the timing with the marks. I put my remote starter switch on and I had just pumped the throttle a couple of times to gas it and set the choke when the boss walked up. He said, How's it going? and for a response I hit the switch. The engine started instantly, and I said to him, "Pretty good." He was impressed. (so was I!)
Like I said, the only time. However, that's how an engine SHOULD start. If it doesn't, find out the problem. You shouldn't EVER have to crank for a long time.

first check for spark, if you have spark then check for fuel. spray some quick star in the air intake if it fires then you have a fuel problem.

Ha HA!! Use a VERY small spray bottle. Most mechanics have funny stories about some guy pouring a coffee cup of gas down the carb.
Guaranteed humorous results.
From a distance.

or you can just take the bottle of fuel douce the whole truck with it, throw a match and walk away... Have you ever tried getting any fault codes out of the truck?

Fault codes??? After doing THAT????
04-17-2008, 11:24 PM
no no no no no... not getting fault codes after that.. i mean getting fault codes out of the vehicle before you tourch it... /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

I wonder what fault codes come up after the torching??
I've never actually torched a vehicle. But I did recently buy a Chevy.
04-18-2008, 07:17 PM
you might as well do some torching now Barry :P
04-18-2008, 07:19 PM
torching is a good way to clear all fault codes though. It is also a good way to get rid of the problem!!!:)

So anyways, back to my thread!, LOL
Having my truck problem fixed... turns out it's the Ignition Module that is/was broken.
Hopefully, that's the only problem, and i'll have er' on the road by Wednesday!
