Its OK, I deal with it every day talking men too not just women. (day job)
Hopefully after replacing the high pressure oil pump it will run, if not I don't know what else they will do.
PSD parts are not cheap as you know and to go on guessing is going to cost you dearly.
Replaced several other things
Then what does your husband know? Pick his brain, some times women have to do that with some men if he will let you. NOT all men... No offence to any of you men out there!!
If "they" want you to find out this stuff, make "them" give you more info.
Print or write stuff down to relay the message as clearly as possible.
I guess in the end it is a matter of how much money you want to burn, compaired to how much info you want to write down/print and relay.
How was it running before?
Smokes when starting or tuning over?
I don't like to assume, so...
Dumb? but did he check the fuses under the hood?
Clean battery connections, charge batteries over night?.
Check the battery ground?
It takes both batteries to be functioning Fully. Do it just in case. Fuses too.
After each thing you have replaced, you try to start it---each time the batteries do not get recharged by the alternator(because it does not start and run)---sitting over time you loose some battery power. Especially months.
Check the oil level in the high pressure oil pump itself?
Fuel bowl screen inside at bottom driver side of bowl?
Make sure fuel is in bowl?
Check HPOP to make sure it was full.
A friend that works on cars?
He do it for a living?
And either is OK, just so people know.
Did he scan it for code? (If I remember correctly one of those cost less than a HPOP.still not cheap.)
Send him to the post to read it or respond.
Oh the Crankshaft sensor is located just above and to the right if the harmonic balancer. It is held on by a 10mm bolt.
Is that the one he changed? http://www.forddoctorsdts.com/articl...icle-06-08.php
