    1999 Ford Explorer XLT will turn over/start, but immediately turns off. To keep it going I have to depress gas, but as soon as I take my foot off it turns off.

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 and it died driving down the road, it will start up again run a few seconds and die. Have checked fuel pressure and it is good. Any ideas? Thank you!


What is the fuel pressure reading? Have you installed a gauge to actually read it. There may be fuel volume but low pressure causing this issue.

98 explorer starts then dies


Been in accident and repaired? Check all sensors are plugged in and all earth wires have been reconnected. Does it splutter and die or just cut straight out? If just cut straight out it will be a sensor/computer fault.

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer 4.0L. It has been sitting for over a year and now won't start. I have narrowed it down to the fuel. If you spray fuel into the throttle body it will start up and run for one...


you will need to drain the gas tank(removal will be necessary as they are anti siphon tanks) and fuel lines as the gas has turned to turpentine. you may also need to clean the injectors(if the gas has turned to turpentine the gas has most likely eaten the seals(o rings) for the injectors.) you will also want to change the fuel filter and run some clean good gas through the lines before you connect everything back up.
other than those things and changing the oil you should be okay.

Starts but won't stay running


Have someone help you do the following. Turn on the vehicle,before it dies,quickly tap the idle air control valve with a wrench or anything you have. If the engine does not die after you tap the IAC,this means that the IAC is faulty. The IAC is under the plastic plate that is behind the throttle body.
