Look on the inside of the left frame rail a little behind the transmission

just a guess but I don,t think its your filter, some of the rv,s never get there filter changed in the life of the rv. try this takes to people ,open the fuel door take off the cap and put your ear down there ,have some one turn the key to start but not crank, you should be able to here the fuel pump pumping,, if not you most likely have a fuel delivery problem.

Try this: on many vehicles there is a switch that turns off the fuel pump in case of an accident and it's located in the footwell-dash area on the passenger side of a Ford vehicle. Your owners manual should show you where it is. Check it and maybe a reset is all you need.

Common problem is the solenoid.
And no it won't click when you try to start it. It just won't start. Been there done that.

There are 4 or 5 solenoids on it. Hope its not the one on the starter unlike in the old days because now it is an assembly and you have to buy a whole new starter.

The one that seems to be the one to go out is located on the inside right front fender. RV mobile repair guys know right where to look ir's such a common problem. Easy fix, cheap part.

All you have to do is have someone check each solenoid while you sit inside turning the key. That will tell you which one is not working.

so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

My E350 fuel filter is located on driver side frame. As I recall you need an inexpensive special tool to remove the filter.

As midnightesadie stated, check your fuel pump. After going through all of the above on ours, we determined the pump had failed. This, unfortunately, is a very common issue on this era of Fords.

Tell us more. Is it turning over but not starting? Can it start up cold, but not when hot? Try this: Turn the ignition switch to on and off three times in succession, and on the 4th time then to start and see if it runs then. If it runs, then that usually means the system is not holding pressure. Watch the rpm gauge, if it is not moving when cranking that usually means a bad crankshaft position sensor. If you own a scangauge you can use that to monitor fuel pressure. Other thing that will give you a no start are bad fuel pump or clogged fuel pump sock. A bad IAC(idle air control valve), bad fuel pressure regulator, leaking fuel injector, and a bad or stuck non return valve.

WOW ! Talk about breaking out the "parts cannon" and shooting wildly ! A bad fuel filter will seldom cause a "no start" !

There are MANY other things that will create a crank/"no start" condition.

First, have someone stand in the back near the fuel tank and listen to for the fuel pump to turn on when the key is switched from OFF to ON. If you don't hear anything, remove the gas cap and put your ear close to the filler and try again. No sound means a bad fuse or dead fuel pump.

Second, on the engine, somewhere on the fuel rail, there is a fuel pressure test point (it is a Schrader valve, which looks like a tire valve and it has a cap on it). After cycling the key from OFF to ON, remove the cap and depress the valve center. Gas WILL SHOOT OUT ! This is good. No gas means no pressure.

I am guessing that that year V10 did NOT have "throttle by wire" and that the idle speed is controlled by an IAC valve. These have a tendency to stick.

Simple test.

• Crank engine for 10-30 seconds.
• If it does not start, place the accelerator down to the floor and crank again.
• After about 5-10 seconds of cranking, slowly start lifting your foot off the floor. If starts, you have a bad/sticky IAC valve. If not, you need more advanced assistance.

Really "Thanks" for all the info. Our fuel filter isn't on the rail and we've tried all of the suggestions, no start. Want start when cold. We've finally think could very well be the fuel pump. Some say it is on top of gas tank haven't found yet. Weather has been too bad lately. We've checked, fuses, listening at the cap. Still can't find fuel filter. We hope soon as weather lets up we can crawl underneath again. Like to at least get it started for transport to Mechanic and know what is wrong when you don't know the mechanic. This forum is so helpful, Thanks again
