Question about 2005 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

BRAND NEW 2008 Ford Sport Trac (2 hr off lot) won't start!

Went out to buy a car, found the Sport Trac, wanted a test drive, engine wouldn't start. (Dealer said someone left light on) Mechanics jumped it, took the test drive, everything was fine. Bought the car, drove it home, went out to eat, and the truck won't start. All lights come on, interior, exterior, etc. Dash says "check charging system". Tried to jump with Mazda 3 and nothing.
What do you think it is?

Its the Battery. These cars Batteries sit at the Factory for who knows how long before Installation. Have even seen Dealers with quick Chargers on the Semi-Truck Transports charging Batteries so they could Unload!

Fuel Filter for Sport Trac


If the car is running good no engine problems or poor gas mileage I wouldn't worry about it. This is done as preventive maintenance. Every tune-up parts have replacement recommended periods. Ignition components, all filters and lubricants should all be replaced the most every six moths depending on how much you drive. Its all common sense if you check your oil and its black its time to change it. If your brakes are screeching same thing and if it been six month probably well over 15,000 miles since you replaced the fuel filter it'll be a good idea to change it.

Brand new 08 Ford Sport Trac (2 hr old) - won't start


Sounds like the battery may be bad. You could remove it and take it to a mechanic or parts store and have them test it for you. Mechanic might charge you 15bucks or so. Most parts stores will test it for free and gladly sell you a new one.
