Sounds like either a bad plug wire, or coil pack. This is about all that would cause the misfire.

Is the engine light on, if so any codes read. I've had this happen to a couple of customers. And it was water in the gas tank. If your confident that you have good spark then I would suggest to focus on the fuel system and run diagnostics. Check fuel PSI. on the fuel rail, should be over 35PSI if not if may be a defective pressure reg. or other defect. Good luck.

Does the alternator work? Does the light go out if you unplug the plug in on the alternator?

SOURCE: 2000 ford explorer ohv 4.0I replaced head gasket.

Do a compresion check, if Ok then timing chain is ok, try some throtle body cleaner trough a vac. hose while cranking if stars, fuel pump is out, another way if you have no codes the most poss. cuase is your fuel pump, check press is gauge handy

You should hear the fuel pump run momentarily when the key is in the Run position. Ensure the engine has a good spark by removing one of spark plug boots. Stick a phillips screwdriver in the boot, and hold the handle of the screwdriver, and allow the shaft near ground. (motor works best) Have someone crank the engine and look for a good blue spark arch from the screwdriver and engine. If your getting good spark, then check the fuel pressure on the fuel injection rail.

2000 ford 4.0 explorer cranks but fails to start. It acts like it starts after sitting all night but then only cranks, what is wrong?


Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.

Why do the lights on my 2000 Ford Explorer flicker -interior and headlights


It is most likely the alternator that is bad,have it checked,or ,if you have a volt meter,hook up at the battery,start the vehicle,and turn the headlights on,and the ac on high blower.It should read 13.65 volts,to 14.25 volts,if it is lower than this,or higher than this,replace the alternator.

I just changed my spark plugs , wires , and coil on my 2000 ford explorer and it will turn over but it wont crank. what do i need to do?


Have you checked to see if you have spark to the plugs? I have found that on some Explorers , the primary voltage to the coil was not there. I know it sounds complicated, but it's not. You have a 4 wire connector at the coil pack. One of the wires has battery voltage going to it. When this wire is checked with a voltmeter when the key is on ,it will show 12 volts. When this wire is checked while cranking the voltage may drop to 9 volts or less. This is "NO GOOD'. If you find this, rewire a jumper from Batt to this wire. Should result in a start and run. Good luck Moe
