Sounds like your battery has gone south. If you can jump it to start and it continues to run then it is just running off the alternator. The battery can no longer store power. That is why you can't get it to start when you turn it off. It requires an alternate power source to crank the engine until the alternator kicks in to power the ignition. Have the battery load tested with a good carbon pyle load tester.

1994 ford explorer wont start...It was running then the starter wanted to turn over now it does nothing

Is your battery charged up? That is the first thing to solve. Try a jump start and if it runs and stays running chances are you battery has seen it's last days.

When I start my 98 ford explorer in the morning it wont turn on but starts just fine after a jump start. then after sitting at work for about 8 hours it needs to be jumped again. it only does it some

Intermittent problems are the hardest to solve. It almost needs to stay where the tech can check it when it is acting up. Just for starters, I'd make sure the battery cables are clean (not corroded) and tight. Doubt that will help, but it does eliminate one problem and is something you can do yourself. Just be careful not to get anything in your eyes. Always wear safety classes. Good luck.

95 explorer wont stay running

Someone will need to check the key switch and figure out what is not getting power. Could be the key switch or a relay.

Check your fuel pump pressure- sounds like the pump is on its last legs.

Power to fuel injectors initaly but not in run position on 1994 4liter

If the fuel injectors don't work when in the run or cranking position the computer may not be getting a signal from the crankshaft position sensor.

Does the service engine soon light become lit when the car is in the run position before starting it?

I'm a little bit confused because the title says '2001 Ford Explorer' and the text says '1994 4 liter'.

Engine wont stay running. Please help.

change the filter first. IF the pumpwas bad it wouldnt start at all. It could be going bad but the only way to really test it is to pull your gas tank and at that rate you may as well replace it.

you could have a clogged injector causing the lack of fuel as well. you can try injector cleaner, Lucas is my personal preference I use it at every fill-up. 4-6oz per tank of gas depending on your tank size.

Return the battery and get another, sometimes because the battery set there too long and won’t work, I had twice when I had my Union 76 Station, after you try it, if you still can not start your son’s car. Let discuss more.
