Truck won't run not getting fuel to engine.

Asked by Apr 09, 2016 at 04:07 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I worked on a dodge 1500
w a 318 doesn't matter if
u got a 4cyl or a v-8 for
the most part thing is for
them comparing is like
common problems w
them. I run a mobile
mechanic service 24-7 a
week, I've been working
on cars, jeeps, trucks,
(pick-ups, & big trucks) ,
equipment, tractors, lawn
mowers, guns, weed
eaters, and welding
machines every since I
was old enough to hold a
wrench, &/or a screw
driver, at 2yrs old I took
my Grandaddys (ALSO
MY VERY BEST FRIEND
IN THE WORLD NEXT TO
JESUS CHRIST!) Brand
new 4day old lawn
mower apart and a chair
my people (kin folk) was
sitting in rebuilt my 1st
engine 307 Chevrolet
when I was 9 yrs old had
my 1st 65 Ford Gallexy
when I was 8yrs old in all
that time and through all
I've worked on as well as
owned in all this time I
learned they all get gas or
fuel, then get air and fire
or a whole lotta
compression and boom it
drives down a piston only
to do the next one right
behind that and so on to
make a running engine. I
had hated electrical work
cause nobody and I mean
nobody wants to pay ya!
but I done this cause my
so called friend promised
me I'd get my money and
have no trouble doing so!
I checked everything w
only a test light to work
with, just like u the fuel
pump as well as injectors
wasn't getting fire. it had
a lot of New parts on it as
to where it should've
been considered brand
new I DO NOT "THROW
PARTS" ATA Problem
and expect it to fix itself!
a total of 4 shops in a
period of a yr and a half
had done exactly this! in
this time they'd not git the
truck running! I had about
18 or 20 hrs in it and the
man had promised me he
got a $100 a hr he
needed my help cause he
couldn't do it and needed
me. he'd give me $50 an
hr to do this so I did the
next to last day he come
around said well what u
thinking about? I said I
believe a new crank
sensor would do it some
justice! he said it has
already got one on it! I
said I can't help that it
ain't any good it needs
another new one on it
besides this one and I'm
99% sure it'll crank up
and run! he said that man
ain't gonna buy another
crank sensor! he's
already bought one as it
is! ol buddy look a here I
WAS MAD AS A FIRE
GETS HOT U COULD'VE
SET A 110K IN
NITROGEN AND DIESEL
OFF ON TIP OF MY
HEAD! ( IF U AINT
GONNA GI ALONG W
WHAT I SAY AND GONNA
DOUBT IT THEN Y U GOT
ME OUT HERE FOR IN
THE 1st PLACE? I GOT
mad and left went to
work cutting logs on the
Goverment place up
toward Monticello, Ga.
called the "Hitchiti" about
2-3 wks later I came back
to Milledgeville and
pulled up in front of the
house and shop kicked
back in my 06 f-150 4 Dr
truck and he came out
and said hey Les, ya
crank sensor is on the
seat of that truck over
there when u decide to
put it on! I got up put it on
told my gurl at the time
hey boo crank this sob up
she hit the key it fired
right up. crank sensor
straight from parts store
was bad! I got probably
ten or more stories where
I fixed things that nobody
else could or would fix
including the dealerships!
I've never ran across one
single thing I couldn't fix!
thAt is great! when I was
6-7 yrs old I helped my
Daddy he'd bought a
"Willis Jeep" traded a
357Magnum for it and
also bought two Ford
maverick, one witch was
wrecked via my Aunt
Delorus who left it in
such a shape that u walk
by it in the Junkyard and
wonder just how many
people died in that wreck
it looked like the bent up
car on Smokey and the
bandit after the sheriff
Buford t justice was
trying to chase the bandit
back to Georgia! my
Daddy got that car
running drove it up the
hwy to his Daddy's house
pulled the motor put it in
another maverick and the
6cylinder he pulled out he
put it in a Willis Jeep cut
the frame extended it 4
inches and we later put a
Dodge Colt car body on
top of that jeep and used
it to go hunting in b4
everybody under the sun
had 3&4 wheelers! I come
from a very long line of
folks who could w/o ??
build, fix, or do anything
at all! and even they were
very impressed w all the
things I managed to
accomplish! idk y though
any day of the wk any
one of them could've
picked out whatever they
wanted to accomplish
and succeded in that at
any given time. I guess it
was thier love for me that
made them so proud.

Les you put that stuff in your garage under the heading of what other Car Gurus should know about you, not on the questions forum.
