help, i'm stuck in elma

so on the way to long beach with the family, we stop in elma. nice little place, the restaurant was good. come back out to the truck and it wont start, cranks but will not fire. had to get it towed to the local ford dealer that doesn't open until monday. the tow truck guy there gave us his truck to continue on our holiday, what a nice guy, but i don't know if the dealer is any good or what my problem may be. i just spent a crapload getting the headgaskets etc done and i'm really stressed now.

That really sucks having problems while on holiday. Sorry I am too far away to help.

But that tow truck driver must be an AWESOME guy to save the day and lend you his truck to finish your trip. Don't think there's many people out there that would do that. Nice to know there's still some generous/trusting people still out there

Have you had the chance to see if it will start on a cold start yet?

Who has the key? You, the tow truck driver or did he drop it in a key box at the dealer?

if the truck driver has the key, maybe ask him to go see if it will start up on a cold start. if you have it - Id try it out when you get back to the truck. if its in a drop box at the dealer i guess youll have to wait but either way there isnt much we can tell you.

If it does fire up on a cold start i believe thats a bad ICP sensor. Eli or Josh might be able to help you with that.
