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.

1999 Ford Explorer Sport Starting Issue


It sounds like the pump is failing. That or sometimes not getting electricity. To check which it is, you could use a voltmeter or test light at the gas tank's electrical plug in. You need to check for power on the fuel pump wire when the engine is being cranked for starting. Do this when turning the key to on does not cause the pump to turn on for 2 seconds as it should. The fuel pump has power for those 2 seconds when key is turned to on, and again has power when the engine is cranked. You might miss the two second signal, so check for power when car won't start-when pump won't turn on-and with the engine cranking. If you have a signal then and still no pump coming on, then you must have a failing pump.
But if you have NO power to fuel pump wire with engine cranking, then it is a problem elsewhere-probably the pump relay (try a new relay if you haven't already). That relay is signaled by the engine computer when key is turned to on or when engine cranks . so you could do some testing at the relay if needed.

Check for vacuum leak at intake manifold or bad fuel pump relay or have fuel pressure checked to see if fuel pump is working properly 40-45 psi it should be pumping

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.
