    Does it have ignition spark? Have you tested it for trouble codes?

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.

Won't start. backed out of parking spot/ died/ will not start.


Possibility fuel pump or pump relay, or if you have had lots of rust & debris in tank, could be the filter again.

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.

Why is my 2002 Ford Explorer V8 cranks but won't start?


No spark or no gas. Are you sure the gas gauge acurrate? When you turn the ignition key from Off to Run, but not all the way to start, listen carefully for the sound of the fuel pump. If you don't hear anything, check the fuse. If the fuse is good the pump may be bad.

Remove a spark plug wire and hold the metal end close to [but not touching!] a metal ground [use a pair of insulated pliers to keep from possibly getting shocked. Have a helper crank the engine. If you see a spark, the ignition is probably ok, although that's not 100% certain, as the timing or dwell angle could still be off.

Good luck!

2000 Ford explorer has been sitting for 6 months. Nothing wrong with it. Replaced batter today, and it turns over just fine, but won't start. Has gas. Was running just fine until it got parked for...


Have you put a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel rail,
to check for pressure?
Do you hear the fuel pump running, when you
cycle the key?
Did you check for spark?

I think when you asked the question,
you knew the answer
