Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
The truck started easy like any other time i started it i drove about 200 yards and i could hear a wineing noise i shut the truck off after checking under the hood i noticed the tension pulley was broke so i started it and put it in reverse to back up the engine died as soon as i put it in reverse now it wont start and now it seems the engine turns over fast i have plenty of fuel pressure and it has spark from the coil pack. any help with this truck i would be greatfull
The timing may now be out as engine moved after the pulley had broke , have the timing checked, if it's turning over very fast the timing belt may have broken so the starter isn't turning anything !

Since you are getting spark and fuel we know you are good there. Check the timing on the engine. Turn the engine from the front of the crankshaft with a socket and a large breaker bar until you reach top dead center of the intake stroke. Then remove the distributor cap and check to make sure the rotor is pointing to the # 1 cylinder. It almost sounds from your description of the sound the engine is making that the timing chain has jumped a few teeth on the gear. These factory gears have a nylon coating on the teeth and over time the nylon chips off the gear. When to much of this plastic gets chipped off the teeth it results in chain slack on the push side of the gear. When you shut the engine off it can jump a few teeth at the very last second before the engine stops rotating the crank and cause it to jump teeth. The engine probably has high mileage and might need the timing gears and chain replaced now. If you perform the visual check with the distributor I think you will find the chain has jumped a few teeth. If you need more help come back to this site and one of us will be glad to help. Good luck. Let me know what you discover.

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee

Have you changed the fuel filter.
Your pump may be priming but the pressure could be against a clogged filter.
You might want to check the fuel pressur at the rail.
It might be a fuel pressure regulator problem
