Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
Every few weeks, I will try to start my car, you can hear it crank, but just won't start. The mechanics check all the codes and everything looks fine. New spark plugs, new wires, new fuel pump. Could it be the crank sensor or the ignition switch?? It happens when it gets warm outside, over 80 degrees.
I don't see anywhere where you replaced the drive belt or the fuel filter it could be building up pressure in the fuel pump causing the sending unit to stick but before you do all this get a digital volt meter and check out the crank sensor I'm just asking because it has happened to me if you have a lot of keys on one key ring it can damage the ignition switch so check out the crank sensor and the ignition switch first
