Question about 2003 Ford Explorer
While driving down the road my 2004 ford explorer suddenly stopped running. I pulled over to the side and tried restarting the car and got nothing. Lights come on but engine doesn't turn. no sounds nor clicking of any kind.
FUEL / INLET MANIFOLD COULD BE CARBONED UP REQUIRERS CARB CLEANER OR EVEN SOME GOOD FUEL ADDITIVES NEEDED..

Sound like a dirty intake/Throttle body try cleaning with INTAKE CLEANER. To clean take off intake hose and spay throttle body wiping with rag clean throttle flap/butter fly hold open by stepping on gas pedal or manually holding open with cable. clean thoroughly and wipe clean. this should take care of the problem. Also check air filter make sure it clean. Contact if you need more help. Good Luck

Check the fuel pump; if it is bad replace it IMMEDIATELY. If the fuel pump is failing (which would cause your problem) then the engine will run lean. This will ruin your catalyic converters and cause the intake and exhaust valves to be open at the same time... this causes cataylst to **** into the engine and ruin it. I know. It happened to me.

I had the same issue i changed the fuel fillter it was a little dirty but not bad. Still had problem then i cleaned out the throtel it worked good for a while. Ended up replacing the throtel its about $250 if you do it yourself which is not hard to do. The problem is the electronic throtel control but you have to replace the whole thing not sold seperatly hope that helps. Been running great did that 15,000 miles ago.
