Fuel Relay 1998 Ford F150

1998 Ford F150It wont start and sounds like its not getting any fuel! I think its the fuel pump but I was wondering if I should check the fuel relay first?


A quick test would be to spray some starting fluid in the air filter to see if it will try to run on that. If it does, then you know you are not getting fuel and the engine is getting spark. At this point you can concentrate on the fuel system.

You may want to check the fuel relay and the inertia switch(fuel cut off). The inertia switch is located under the passenger side floor mat toward the dash. Check the relay also applying battery positive and negative directly to the pump to check it. If it is coming on you may need to check the fuel pressure next.
