You nead to se if your are getting spark

  • If you are getting spark and fuel, the plugs are fouled, or the fuel pressure is wrong. You need to check the fuel pressure. If there is too much pressure, it will not start. If there is not enough, it will try to start but will not run.

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.

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start


Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

01 ford explorer sport won't stay running. turns over fine and starts but quits right away


Check for vacuum leak at intake manifold or bad fuel pump relay or have fuel pressure checked to see if fuel pump is working properly 40-45 psi it should be pumping

2000 ford explorer 4.0 SOHC, how do i get to the carburator? The vehicle has not run for 3 years, will turn over, but will not start, is it a carburator problem or fuel pump?


this car does not have a carburetor it is fuel injected.it could be the fuel pump.if you listen by the fuel tank and try to start the car you should hear the fuel pump run.if not you can try to hit the fuel tank in the center of the tank while trying to start it.if it starts then the fuel pump needs replacing.it could also be bad gas after sitting for 3 years which will not ignite.the fuel injectors could be plugged up from the gas being bad.have you check to see if the plugs are getting spark.is the air intake unrestricted(nothing building a nest in the air intake tract.

Vr4 won,t start was going an is turning over


It may not be getting fuel. You have to maybe look to changing the inline fuel filter or have the fuel pump itself checked for operation. The fuel pump is in the gas tank, but you can check fuel flow by separating the line at where it goes into the injectors. Put a plastic container under the line where separated and crank the engine a couple times and see if you have fuel flow. Often times the inline fuel filter gets gunked up by sediment from the gas tank and blocks fuel flow.

I have an '04 Explorer Sport Trac. When my girlfriend went to start it today she said "check fuel pump" popped up on the screen then it died and wont crank back up. Any suggestions?


seperate the fuel line at the fuel injecter, turn the engine over if fuel comes out , more than likely it is not the pump, if you get no fuel, change the filter, try again, if no fuel most fuel pumps today are in the tank, drop tank change pump

First thing would be to replace the fuel filter. Then spark plugs. You may have a weak fuel pump. A faulty fuel pressure regulator could also cause this.

My explorer ran out of gas, i filled it up to about a half a tank, now it just turns over but wont start


if it's fuel injected,look on the fuel rail for a schrader valve--looks just like a valve stem on a tire but shorter.remove cap,again just like on a tire.turn key to on-push valve stem in as if to let air out if you get air,then gasoline,you have just bled the system.replace cap,start car.if you get no gas,remove gas tank cap,turn on key,listen for ""hum'' of fuel tank.no hum,check fuel pump.modern[plastic] fuel pumps will self destruct if run dry,even for a short time.
