Why will my truck not turn over?

Luke Black

Asked by Nov 13, 2014 at 08:25 AM about the 1988 Ford F-150 XLT Standard Cab LB

Question type: General

My battery is good my starter is
good, and it's had cranked up
everytine perfectly like a new truck
no problems. And I replaced my
thermostat, I didn't unplug anything
at al, I put everything like it was
SUPPOSED TOO. Well now I turn the
key and its trying and trying but just
won't fire. So my truck is parked on a
slope hill, and It had not even a 1/4
of a tank. Could It be that the gas
went all to the back, and it's just not
pickin any gas up? I don't think it
could possibly be anything. It just
makes no sense!! Please someone
help I need this truck bad for work
and school, help me out please

Fuel pump.


Try adding 5 gallons of fuel and see if that helps. If no Lorne could be right.

I'm pretty sure you just missed hooking something back up. Or maybe bumped something
