Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
My car suddenly stopped when I was driving. Usually I can hear a "whistl" sound when I set the ignition on, Now I can't hear that but the starter run an engine turn but will not start.It's a mecanical fuelpump so it's not the noise from electr. I have put a new ignition coil in but that didn't help.

You need a wiring diagram before you start and get out your meter. How did you check out the relays? Remove them,power up the coils and read OHM's across all contacts or use the buzzer on the meter? You missed one The fact the solenoid is good doesn't mean the contacts inside aren't burnt and not applying current to the starter motor. We over look the easy stuff most of the time. Did you do a voltage drop test on the starter while trying to crank? A new solenoid may be all you need.

SOURCE: engine stalls at 30mph upon
Hello first of all
well i am sorry a mechanic cant figure this out its really sad. ok so your problem is your either one of two things but most likely the first one i list.
1. camshaft postion sensor
2. crankshaft postion sensor
Now that being said it most likely the camshaft sensor the reason i say that is when a crankshaft postion sensor is bad the car has very hard starts and most of the time no start issues. When a camshaft postion sensor is bad the car cuts off whil driving and can be hard to start up again.
So that being said they are both pretty cheap parts i would go ahead and replace them both and i would bet my 5 years as ford mechanic that solves your issue.
The crank postion sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer pully or right beside it here is a picture from autozone.com and description.
The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM).
And the camshaft sensor picture and info from autozone.com below.
The camshaft position sensor identifies position of the camshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM).
The crankshaft postion sensor is 22.99 and the cam is 19.99 so 50.00 bucks and about hours time should have you up and running.
PS if this helps please 4 thumbs up it helps me continue to help on here thanks
