    i was told it could be fuel sending unit that needs to be replaced ... then again i was also told that it could be short somewhere in a wire causing the problem. its a 96 explorer xlt with the v6 engine i have noticed this that when the roads are wet the problem happens more often the on a dry day

Sounds like a bad I.A.C. (idle air control) motor, or I.A.C. switch located on the side of the throttle body (dr. side) if i remember correctly. I ran into this on a '97 sport i used to own, if you go to remove it the screws (phillips head) are usually in there pretty tight. Keep me posted on if it helps.

SOURCE: 1998 ford Explorer starting

check your ground cables for corrosion or looseness- it starts slow bwcause everything is still cold, after a few seconds of cranking the voltage heats the cables up and makes a better connection... also check your positive cables.

Want to know about fixing my 1996 Ford Exploer


On the brake light switch check the harness sometimes it gets to hot and terminals won't make contact they open up. Try wiggling the brake switch harness while pressing brake with other hand truck running or key on engine off and listen for solenoid clicking everytime you press the brakes.

I went off your primary post of brake lights staying on replace switch now won't go in to gear (stuck in parking)

Jeep 96 dies sometime going down the road and wont start sometimes. will start after 10 miles at times and 24 hrs sometimes. the dash says check gauges. help woman alone need advice


Fuel pump intermittent, check for fuel pressure before dropping the tank to renew pump.
Otherwise check electrical connection at battery, and make sure you do not have an open circuit.
Loss of connectivity could cause this issue, failed fuel pump sometimes work, but are not reliable.
You should see 30-45 psi at fuel rail, and the regulator should bump pressure 5 psi when reving the motor. Higher pressure indicates failed regulator.

My 1996 ford Bronco xlt will just cut off on me while driving.sometimes crank right back . sometimes take a few minute to crank back. and my fuel gauge is not working


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the fuel filter. It can be clogged by dirt and rust which may cause the blockage on fuel flow. Try to check the fuse of the fuel gauge too. If it's blown the gauge won't work.

If the problem still persists then the problem will be on the fuel float itself inside the tank. You will need to have it replaced to have accurate reading. Replace the spark plugs too for if it's corroded or full of carbon the engine may stall because of fuel flooding.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1996 Ford Explorer XLT V6 - will start but stalls after 5 mins.


This can be cause by many things, such as a fuel pump going bad / or is bad, fuel injectors need cleaned / replaced, fuel filter dirty just to name a few. Could also have a vapor lock where the fuel line is running to close to a heat source like the manifold or engine and the heat creates a vacum in the fuel line stopping the flow of fuel. Best bet have a garage repair shop look at it. To many hit and miss causes.

1996 jeep cherokee sport 4.0 L it will stall


it looks like your engine is having an over rich fuel mixture maybe, thatswhy when you press the pedal to the floor it starts becouse you allow lots of air to help clean the mixture while cranking, also you should have black smoke in the tailpipe until it cleans up and runs fine, i think youre having a leak in one our more injectors you should check them first for proper seal under pressure these is done in an injector test machine, second it may be a defective map sensor these trucks some times have a bad map and dont give a MIL (malfunction indacator lamp) and last but more rare to be is a blocked fuel pressure regulator chek fuel pressure it should be between 38 and 45 psi and it shoul hold these pressure when you turn off the engine if pressure drops fast its injector seal problems or fuel pump check
