How hard was it hit? Was there extensive damage to the front? Check the crankshaft sensor at the bottom of the engine front and see if it is unplugged or broken. See if you are getting power to the inertia switch. You will have to have someone turn the key on and off because it will only power up 3-5 seconds. Check the ground wire at the battery,the one with the connection for broken/unplugged. This is the PCM ground. If you don't have power to the inertia switch,check all fuses.inside and out.

Does it just turn over and over?
Try the inercia switch... It's a fuel pump cut off switch, located on the passanger kick pannel.
You will have to pull the carpet back. It is a black box, with a red button on top. The button should be pushed in.....

Knocking in engine and low oil pressure usually means bad main bearings. May have been caused by bad oil pump or just worn out bearings due to high mileage. If this is problem needs engine or rebuild old engine.

1998 v8 eddie bauer ford explorer does not start at all


Does the engine turn over? If the starter is turning the motor, then your issues are going to be no fuel, no spark. If not fuel means that your fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel filter is bad (common issues first). If you have fuel and no spark then your coils are bad, crankshaft position sensor, cam shaft position sensors are bad. Are there any check engine lights on? If so read the codes with a scanner. If not, then you are going to have to check electrical with a multi-meter to see what the problems may be.
