Asked by Dec 02, 2012 at 01:52 PM about the 1993 Ford E-150 STD Econoline

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Econoline 1993 e-150 won't start.  I have gas in the tank.  Reset switch was not tripped. Relay looks
clean, Fuse is fine. I can hear the EFI when I turn the key before starter begins.  I poured gasoline into the
air induction system and it tried to crank.

just pulled pcv valve and oil fill hose from valve covers... I've got NO oil splashing while the engine is trying to turn over... 137K miles on it... Might be the timing chain :(
