I have a 2006 Ford escape 4 cylinder engine turns over doesn't start

Asked by Nov 26, 2016 at 06:50 PM about the 2006 Ford Escape XLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can hear the fuel pump running when I turn the ignition on
so I sprayed ether into the throttle body an still didn't start
so fuel pump should be okay. When I flutter the peddle it
wants to start so I'm at a loss. I was thinking the iMac valve
but maybe it's a spark problem or a bad number 1 injector

If you spray fuel or starter fluid and don't get anything I'd say it's a spark issue. If it has spark it would start. But I would check the injectors as well as any valves for any leaks

I would check your crank position sensor too. It controls the injectors and spark

I checked for spark and I was getting it so I tried the ether again and it fired up! I think when I changed the fuel filter there may have been some crap in the line. I'm going to check the fuel pressure next.

Was it running before you changed the filter?

Yes no issues

I would make sure you put it in right. Might be backwards, there is a flow in, flow out side

First thing I did when I installed it and double checked when the car didn't start
