2001 Ford E-150 won't start

Asked by Jan 11, 2017 at 03:01 PM about the Ford E-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The battery was dead, but when I jump started it, it
started right up. I turned it off and now it won't
start. It turns like it's trying to start but it won't.  I
sprayed starter fluid in air filter and it will start, but
as soon as the starter fluid runs out it dies. I
checked the inertia switch. I don't  know what else
to try.

Your battery is probably weak or dead but go ahead and clean and tighten the battery connections and try charging it. My guess is that they battery is too weak to run the fuel pump.
