Your starting the car too fast, I do that every once in a while. Your not giving the fuel pump a chance to start. You know how you hear things turn on and start when you turn the key without out turning it all the way to start normally called "accessory". It turns on all sorts of things, one being the fuel pump, if you turn it too quick it doesnt have enough time to start the fuel pump so you get the car just trying to turn over because no gas is hitting the engine. I give it an extra second before I turn it sometimes.
I am having a problem with my car, from time to time my car fails to start. Once I turn the key the engine continues to turn over but fails to start. I have had this problem approximately 15 times. I took my car to the warranty service but they looked at me like I was crazy because they never heard of the problem before.
Can someone please tell me the TSB number for this issue? I have attempted to look it up with no luck.
Sorry, there is no such thing as "starting your car too fast." In fact, this car has has Ford One-Touch Intelligent Start.
To start the car you only need to turn the key to 'Start' and let it go. The car does the rest. From the OM:
Turn the key to 4 (start), then
release the key as soon as the
engine begins cranking. Your vehicle
has a computer assisted cranking
system that assists in starting the
engine. After releasing the key from
the 4 (start) position, the engine may continue cranking for up to
10 seconds or until the vehicle starts.
Note: Cranking may be stopped at any time by turning the key to the off
So, are you saying the car starts itself
too fast? It's not possible to turn the key so fast that the fuel pump doesn't have time to start. The flow of electricity in a wire is virtually instantaneous. It's 2011. The days of mechanical fuel pumps and carburetors when you had to pump the gas multiple times to start a car are gone . This is EFI. Even with the with the key off there is 35-40psi residual fuel pressure in the system at all times. Therefore the car will start immediately. Pull the fuse for your fuel pump. The car will still start and run for a few seconds, even with no power to the fuel pump. Did you ever hear of relieving the pressure in an EFI system before changing the fuel filter or doing other work involving fuel lines? What do you suppose is the reason for that?
My car has failed to start at the first turn of the key twice in 2 years and both time were in the same week. The OP apparently has a problem but it's intermittent, thus making it hard to diagnose. It has to happen when the dealer has the car.
