You have to drop the gas tank in order to change out the pump

1 take the straps loose thata hold the tank
2 put a jack under the tank to hold it as you allow it to come down
3 unhook the lines that run to the tank as well as the wiring harness
4 unhook the fill tank hose
5 lower the tank to the floor
6 remove the O ring that holds the pump in the tank
7 pull the old fuel pump out and put the new one in the same way the old one came out.
8 the rest you do in reverse order.

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.

Fuel pump relay


In the fuse box, (under the hood), lower right corner. C1051....if you think its bad, there are others like it in the fuse box you can swap with. If the fuel pump doesnt work, be sure to check the INERTIA SWITCH. I cant tell you how many fuel pumps are replaced because no one checked that switch. If the Inertia Switch is good, have someone rap on the bottom of the fuel tank while you are cranking the engine over, if it starts then, the fuel pump is bad.

What is the fuel pump relay number in the fuse box of a 2001 explorer sport? is there another relay in there i can switch to see if the pump relay is bad?


you can find the location of this relay from the owners manual, if you don't have one you can download one from fleet.ford.com, or try your local library. The A/C relay, horn, and Fuel pump relays are all the same. Hope this helps, let me know

My 2001 ford explorer sport will not start


It doesn't sound like a fuel pump. Probably not the starter either. More likely coolant is getting into the cylinders. This can come from a bad intake manifold gasket or a bad head gasket.
