Open the hood nad on the right from where you are standing there is a grey box open it and it will have some plugs in it. The plug in it is a 3prong plug take it out and replace it it will cost about $4.00 and you car will start. it is the plug that gives power to the gas pump.

If you have a 5.4 engine, you have "coil over plug set up". The water gets into the coil area and shorts out. If you can, air blow all the coils.
Keep all coils dry

I have ran into the problem on ford engines that if the engine is washed and wont start after that, that the ignition coil needs to be replaced.

Why wont my 1996 ford explorer start it turns over but wont start


You need to determine whether or not it is getting fuel and spark. It needs both to start. Remove one plug wire and hold it close to the engine while someone cranks it over. There should be spark from the plug wire. If there is spark, you will have a fuel supply issue. Possible fuel pump/relay/wiring/fuel filter/injectors not working to name a few. If no spark, possible crank sensor/ignition module/wiring.

2003 ford taurus 3.0 Vulcan cranks strong, you can smell the gas but it won't start. I tried replacing the ignition coil with no results.


It is one of two things. Crank shaft sensor, on timing cover, behind crank pulley. Or the camshaft syncronizer, or the camshaft sensor (sits on top of Camshaft syncronizer) Located on drivers side end of engine, in what used to be the home of the old type distributor.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

At idle the engine is surging up and then back to idle


the idle air control motor may be dirty and unable to seat itself. check the throttle body plate for black gunk on it. this is behind the big fat hose where it connects to the engine from the air filter box. if there is and with fords i can allmost guarantee there is get throtle safe cleaner and clean it. remove the idle air control valve and clean it to. after you do this it will be hard to start at first as it sucks the remaining cleaner thru.

Tapping noise at 3000 rpm on 4.0 litre 1996 ford explorer.Valves are quiet at idle and up to 3000 rpm


have the oil pressure checked. i believe the specification is 40-60 psi at 2000 rpm. sticking valves and lifters can cause valve train noise. weak vavle springs can also be the problem. try running an engine cleaner such as gunk motor flush at your next oil change. follow directions specifically. obtain a product designed to aid in cleaning deposits on valves.

Timing belt broke ,just replace it but it won`t crank.it sounds like electric priblem


Only the 2.3 liter diesel is an interference engine. The 2.3 Liter gas is not an interference engine. I would guess the belt was not installed correctly. The belt broke so the cam was then out of alignment with the crankshaft. Unless you aligned it correctly it will not start. BTW, the belt must be replaced every 60,000 miles. I asume you have the timing cover off, put it back on and set the crankshaft at the 0 mark on the timing cover, remove the cover and don't touch the crank. near the bottom of the cam gear is a protruding piece of plastic with three raised areas, set the cam timing mark at the first pointer, closest to the passenger side . on the back part of the timing cover is a v shaped pointer set the distributor gear mark at the pointer, remove the distributor cap and verify that the rotor is pointing at #1. Loosen both bolts on the tensioner and using a pry bar carefully pry the tensioner away from the distributor gear, tighten the small bolt on the tensioner. install the new belt starting at the crank, then the distributor gear, then the cam, then over the tensioner pulley. loosen the small bolt and the tensioner will adjust automatically. tighten the tensioner bolts and turn the engine over by hand 2 or 3 times and make sure all marks line up ( the cam mark should now be at the center pointer with the crank at 0). I find it handy to paint a reference mark for the crank inside the timing cover.
