    Re: Compuvalve Problem

    When I say it won't turn over I mean just as you say...it cranks just fine, but won't start. The problem seems to be sporatic and I have found a ford technical service bulletin (TSB) that I think addresses the problem. The document states that when the "low flow injector" on the compuvalve gets stuck the vehicle will crank, but not start. Look up TSB 03-10-3. There seem to be a number of articles about this in the Ford TSB library.

    Thanks for all the input everyone.

    When you say will not turn over, does that mean it cranks OK but won't fire?Do you have any codes? I have a 2001 Ford also and starter died suddenly, I think the compuvalve is for CNG only Bob B

    Read down a few posts. There's a very good CNG Ford specific mechanic in SLC. He replaced my compuvalve and is certified.

    Ggaint,

    No quick answers but maybe a suggestion. The GFI/Compuvalve system does have self-diagnostic capibility. If you can get it to a CNG technician, he/she should be able to check the computers for any set codes.

    Easier said than done, but your best bet.

    Compuvalve Problem

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm new to the CNG world as of a few months ago when I purchased a 2001 F-150 bifuel pickup. I've been driving it problem free until tonight. I'm out of CNG and had been running on gasoline for 1 day, but now the vehicle won't start. The problem started when I manually flipped the switch over to gasoline before starting the engine. The battery/starter etc. seem to be functioning properly, it just won't turn over. I'm wondering if its possibly the compuvalve not switching the fuel system over to gasoline when I flip the switch. Any help out there?

    Thanks!
Working...
