Truck won't stay running

Asked by GuruY816S Mar 21, 2018 at 08:07 PM about the 2001 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning 2 Dr Supercharged Standard Cab Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2001 Ford Lightning wouldn't start this
morning. Well it kinda did for about 3
seconds. Each time I try to crank over the
motor the RPMS go up and then on the way
down to idle it shuts down every time. ??? If
anyone has any ideas I'd greatly appreciate
it.

May a clogged fuel filter to a bad Mass Air flow meter , run a comuter code check , it will tell you if the fuel pressure is low or if the MAF is failing , If you have a K&N FILTER you probably killed the MAF just like I did Run the computer codes with a diagnostic tool it will give you a place to start looking for your problem .
