Asked by Jul 17, 2013 at 07:54 PM about the 1996 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have plenty of fire and fuel pressure is fine. It's just not sending fuel to start the engine.
I'm thinking it's a TPS, but I'm not sure. The engine will start and run fine with me spaying
fuel into the intake.  Also, some of symptoms it was having before it failed to start were a
High Idle on a warm start up, Poor gas mpg and lag in power.

96 is OBD2, borrow a computer tester and get the codes. Sounds like the injectors are not triggering if you have fuel pressure.
