Question about 2000 Ford Explorer
If my explorer has been sitting too long ie; over night or while Im at work. The engine turns over but it will die out unless I give it gas constantly until it's warm enough to stay running on it's own which can take 10-15 minutes at times. This is the first time this has ever happened so I would like an idea of what I may be in for. Any info will help. Thanks in advance!

SOURCE: engine starts and shuts off
I woulds replace the fuel pump. But before doing that go under the hood and on the right hand side there is a grey back open it up and you will see some plugs, There is a 3 prong plug take it out and replace it, that plug is placed in the front. I would try thats first only because this is lets just call it a battery for the gas pump and is it is not working then the gas pump will not work and you will not has a car. Some times the car will start fine and some times the car will not. So replace the plug before the gas pump. This part costs about $4.00. If for some reason you are not able to fine the box let me know and I will do my best to get you the info you need in order to find it.

SOURCE: dies when drive
My 99 Explorer would not run unless you held the pedal to the floor. Found out ford has a recall on their intake gaskets. If you see what the intake gaskets look like you'll wonder how the motor runs at all. I had that prob for 50,000 miles and I changed those gaskets and now it runs like a new ford.

P0113 code indicates that the intake air temp sensor has Hi voltage. This sensor is located in the air intake near or in the air cleaner. It is a 2 wire sensor that looks like it does nothing. It measures air temp coming into engine and then the computer knows what kind of fuel mixture it should be delivering. This may be something to look at. The reason the check engine light comes on later is that the computer only self checks at certain times. Rate me if this helps

change the filter first. IF the pumpwas bad it wouldnt start at all. It could be going bad but the only way to really test it is to pull your gas tank and at that rate you may as well replace it.
you could have a clogged injector causing the lack of fuel as well. you can try injector cleaner, Lucas is my personal preference I use it at every fill-up. 4-6oz per tank of gas depending on your tank size.

ford has problem with idle air control valve
try to start the car next time and keep your foot on the gas pedal lightly
if it does not cut off then that's the problem
