2001 F150 Does not crank or turn over

Asked by Sep 04, 2016 at 12:14 PM about the 2001 Ford F-150 XLT Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was going up a hill, the trans shift to a lower gear, the rpms naturally went up... all normal. But the engine went well beyond the normal rpm's, when I noticed it was hitting about 4000... then the engine died. I did not hear, or did not notice, any popping or loud banging nor was there any noticeable smoke. Now when I try to crank it I hear one initial click and it does nothing else. All the electrical gauges come to life as they should but nothing else. The battery is 2 years as is the alternator. One small detail... while it has run very well all these years is does have 425k on it. What might I be looking for as tot he cause of it not turning over or cranking? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, JMR

Engine seized turn bottom crank shaft if turns check engine solenoid

Engine over-reeving while under load would appear to indicate the "load" was removed due to internal engine failure. As a result engine seizure occurred. At 425K on the engine, wouldn't spend a lot on repair. Spend the hundred bucks on a mechanic diagnosis, but expect the need for another engine.
