April 26, 2010Im having a problem with my engine not cranking. If I let the truck sit overnight when I go to start the key the first turn it seems like my battery is dead, but the second time I turn the key I hear a loud clicking from the starter solenoid but nothing else happens. I have had both the solenoid and stater checked they seem to be fine I also have a fully charged battery and I have changed the three bat cables. would someone have any ideas? thanks

May 1, 2010almost sounds like what my dads truck did,try spraying some starter fluid directly into the throttle body to see if will start.his ended up being a bad fuel pump.
November 10, 2010Starter fluid won`t do anything if the engine isn`t turning over. I would check and recheck your connections. How are your cables on your starter? You aren`t getting the amps where they need to be.
P.S. An easy way to tell if your fuel pump is bad is to turn the key to the on position and listen for the tell-tale hum of the fuel pump priming. If you don`t hear it, then you have a problem.
November 11, 2010Have your battery load tested. Any place that sells batteries
should have a load tester. A broken connector inside the battery
will cause the exact problem.
