Ford f-150: cranks over ok but won’t start – Auto Repair Chat

In this Video I have a look at a 2007 Ford F150 5.4 that was towed in as a no start. After a quick look we discovered that the truck had no fuel pressure and a code for the "FPDM Offline." It doesn't take long with a visual inspection to find the crusty's. -Enjoy!

    I have a 2008 Ford f150 body and frame and almost perfect shape and it's a New York truck and if anybody's looking for a truck when I get it running again because that's why I'm watching the video it's up for grabs

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Oj Peculiar says:

    Learned a lot, cheers

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars W Greathouse says:

    It would be nice if someone could come up with a relocation kit to move the fuel pump module is the inside of the cab.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Samuel David Lee says:

    02??? CHECK BATTERY IN KEY.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Green says:

    We salt a little in Tennessee, but pay alot less taxes.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Prence says:

    Awesome

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Denver Basshead says:

    It's nice to only get salted a few times a year

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pontificus Vascillious says:

    c'mon …
    too easy …
    did you even have to jack the truck up?
    this one truly was …
    'if i can do so can you'
    (maybe mrs. o could have done it)

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jesus Alvarado says:

    Those modules were originally mounted directly on the frame rail with no standoffs. They would build up corrosion like it was going out of style and crack the casing right in half. The updated part comes with the standoff studs.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clark Miedel says:

    you saying napa or naper ?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars palladini971 says:

    FORD = Found On Road Dead

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Will Hess says:

    "We've all seen a rotted out fuel module at some point"
    Sir, you grossly overestimate my knowledge of vehicles

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick D says:

    Eric you're one awesome mechanic 😎

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Waggoner says:

    id like to thank the people at south main auto ,they bring it to you in a format that the regular folk can understand and at the same time is quite entertaining , allthough it wasnt what i was looking for not their fault but very cool

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PERCY PERTEE says:

    SHOW NO START, NO CRANK FOR 2007 F-150 LARRIAT

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Railnut says:

    I’m surprised you didn’t spray that new module down with fluid film after you completed the install. It may not have stopped any corrosion of the new mod but it would have slowed it down a lot!!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Norman says:

    if NAPA won't sponsor you ,you shouldn't mention their name. Just say you got the part from the auto part supply store. Why give them any recognition?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Victor Barajas says:

    I just came across this video. Eric thank you so much for the beautiful work you do for us!!
    In my opinion, what on earth, ford have never give a shttttt about all this people who buys they trucks.
    I meant, they are other indor corners/places where parts can be installed ☺️☺️ I don't buy ford but I feel bad for the ones that do so.

    Keep it up Eric! We love your work

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AL M says:

    I've run into this before. Trust stupid Ford to put electronics made of aluminum against steel underneath where salty water can ruin it.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tonys ToolBox says:

    Been there did that. Power washed the wheel wells on a 04. When spraying (while running) the truck stalled. Enough said.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars yoyo762 says:

    Amazing automakers now make body panels that outlast frames. I guess its all show and no foundation concern.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Craig says:

    you telling us your Nose is back to Normal???

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Thomas says:

    i had an o6 f150 with 750 thousand miles on it and not a speck of rust or corrosion…….kinda hat that i traded it for my 18 f150!!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jackhouston357 says:

    DID YA LET MRS O SMELL IT?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars retro440 says:

    "Gosh dang it all to heck." As a shade tree mechanic, this terminology is foreign to me.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Manny L. says:

    heyy man thanks for your video, i bought a 2019 f150 3.5 xlt wich i repairing by myself, and have the same problem, so maybe got check the fuel pump module, maybe get water, thanks

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Faglie says:

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ahnbra says:

    it is a FORD FOUND IN RIAD DEAD!! or FOUND IN RESERVATION DUMP!!!! if you are a Native American Indian.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Meredith says:

    I love you term for New York communist state , here we just simply call California we just call it commyfornia you need to develop a better name for New York that puts communist in the name .

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Lee says:

    Hello from Alberta Canada. I had this problem with my 2010 f truck in a grocery store parking lot. I was kinda freaked out at the time. Avery kind guy came along and asked if he might help he said he used to work on fords and said ckeck the fuse box ,yes the engine fuse was blown, we replaced it with a ( spare) an away we went. I thanked my savior very much as he saved me about $400. Check the fuses first.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DaddyBeanDaddyBean says:

    Was the key lock in the bumper still present? When I had to get mine out (Ohio truck at 86k miles), the lock cylinder was frozen up tight, but the locking bar on the back of it was 80% gone anyway. 5 seconds with needle nose pliers and the lock assembly fell out. Now it is back in the hole, with a hose clamp wrapped around the lock body behind the bumper, so it looks like it is locked but just needs a screwdriver to remove.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Simon Jones says:

    plastic and pcb/ printed curcuit boards are a strange smell that stays with you all day

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J. Mark Krzystofiak says:

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Puig says:

    You have the luck of the Irish getting all of them easy peasy jobs. Sure glad I live in Florida the non comie state, however lately we have a plethora of New Yorkers floating around here. Please call em back. 😆

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Rak says:

    Hey was great job fixing the problem, I just wished that DAB of antiseeze on new tiny bolt would been easy take out for next time. I know time the essence on repairs in garage. Your videos are awesome.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Danny Hubert says:

    Eric myfriend i just ordered sweatshirt from you can you do me favor sign it for and your beautiful mrs .o please buddy thank you myfriend

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Cos55Chev says:

    It's really sad that automotive engineers put electronic modules, fuse boxes and connectors in places that are exposed to water, salt, mud, etc. Then they don't even protect them by sealing them properly either. Inexcusable in my opinion. 🙁 PPE ( a 3 letter acromion you can figure out)

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Krankie V says:

    Older f-150 that won't start in Upstate NY. A glance at the fuel pump driver module is usually all you need LOL

    EDIT: thanks for the explanation on why that doesn't work every time.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Hartloff says:

    There is a tsb about the disimilar metals on the fuel pump driver
