Did you ever figure out what was wrong with your truck and how to fix it? I have a 2001 F-150 5.4 liter that is exhibiting the same behavior. Seems to me to be a heat issue. When the truck gets hot either though driving or sitting in the hot sun it will not crank but let it cool off an it starts up just fine.

My problem turned out to be a starter solenoid going bad. When the truck heated up it didn't reset properly until it cooled down. I replaced the solenoid and the problem went away!

2000 F150 129,000 miles. Wouldn't start for me after being in store shopping. It wanted to turn over but wouldn't catch...hit the fuel pump with a hammer...waited, still wouldn't start. Wacked fuel pump again...still wouldn't start. Left the truck and called a tow truck. 20 minutes later tow truck driver jumped into truck and it turned right over! Had the fuel pump checked the next day at garage it registered fine, nothing wrong. Battery checked too that's fine. What's my next step? Friend told me to change the fuel filter...but wouldn't that show up on fuel pump test if it was failing?

are the coil packs hard to change ? looking at it they seem to slip over the spark plug , but i see a igniation wires from the coil pack , do i unplug them + insert them into the new coil pack?
any help with this would be greatly apprecaited
unplug the wire to the coil pack...remove the 7mm mount screw and pull the coil pack out.install new coil pack,mount screw, and connect plug, i used dielectric grease to help seal out moisture on the new coil pack...just squirt it in the end of the boot that contacts the spark plug..coil pack 50 bucks..grease 3 bucks and its easy to do yourself. you may need to unplug the wire to the fuel injector for room to work ...then just plug it back in when done.

I have a 1999 F-150 4x4 with 151,ooo Km. When I turn the key it is "cranking" but not "firing". New fuel filter was put on 18 months ago and a new gas tank. Also the o2 censor was done about 4 months ago. Really bad fuel mileage, about 450 km to a tank. Is it a fuse for the fue pump? It is also sittng with a full tank of fuel. Please help, thankyou.
Try spraying some gas through the intake and try starting. If it does start, the fuel pump is not getting any fire from the battery.
If it still does not start after spraying gas in the intake, your not getting any fire through your ignition coils.

I have a 2000 F-150 that when I start the engine it reset the radio clock to 1200. Does't happen all the time just when it has been sitting a long time, like overnight.
Some radio have two hot wires, one that works off the accessories, and another that is hot all the time to keep the clock running. Check all the fuses, and if this doesn't work it could be an internal problem with the radio. Does your truck have an power antena?

I have a 2003 F150 SuperCrew with 4.6 that wont start. Changed the fuel pump, the relay, and the fuel filter. Still wont start. It turns over seems fine other than its like it isnt getting enough fuel. Asked around locally and nobody seems to know what else to do.Please help
You need to find out if your vehicle is getting spark or fuel. Pull a spark plug wire out of 1 of cylinders and lay it up against engine block or a test light and see if it sparks or not. If it does its most likely a fuel issue. To find out if u are getting fuel spray some starting fluid into carburator. If your vehicle starts and stalls then you have a clogged filter or bad pump.

I have a 2000 F150 4.6L Triton. I just RECENTLY had the battery replaced thinking that it would fix my starting issues. Well, it did for a few days, but then the problem reoccured. I noticed before I changed the battery, that when I went to start my truck, the instrument panel needles would jump all the way forward and then level out to normal WHEN the truck would start. It had NEVER done that before! It did it once more when I actually replaced the battery but hasn't done it since.??? Now the truck won't start. The starter turns but won't turn the motor. Lights are all working, everything works normal EXCEPT it won't start. I'm thinking fuel pump? Filter? I'm not really sure at this point. It threw me off when the gauges started acting weird. Like it was electrical or something... PLEASE HELP!

My 1995 Ford F150 intermittently won't start. One day it's fine, the next day it'll start but 2 hours later it won't. But if I crank it 15 or 20 times then it will start. Mechanic has replaced the following: rotor and distributor cap, new fuel filter, and new relay which something to do with the fuel injection. Both fuel pumps (dual tanks) can be heard when key is turned on. ANy help would be appreciated.
We have the exact same truck with the same problems. Did you ever get yours fixed? What was the cause??

I have a 2003 Ford F-150, 4.6 L.
stopped at at store and 10 minutes or so came back out and it wouldn't start.
I was told it was the starter so I bought and replaced the starter and still won't start.
We never had any problems with the truck, and it seemed to just quit. Anyone have an answer or idea ?
