Check if there is any obstruction in exhaust line . Also check pressure switch tube for any obstruction. Get a mutimeter and check if the pressure switch sensor is ok.

Remove the front panel and start the furnace. Does the ventor fan that pushes the exhaust out the plastic vent pipes run? Check the intake and exhaust pipes outside for blockage. Bags or other debris can get sucked in the intake.

It does run and than ends up shutting off. Where would the intake be located? I checked the exhaust already!

If it is a 2 pipe system then it should have an intake pipe also going outdoors. One pipe system takes the air from the basement. Carefully remove the hose from the pressure switch and poke a wire thru the port on the plastic collector box where it attaches. DO NOT suck or blow on the pressure switch or it gets damaged. Blow thru the hose in case it has water in it. Check the drain from the furnace and the condensate trap. May have to remove it and flush it with hot water and bleach. Beenthere is a York/Luxaire tech and may know that furnace better than me.
