Can i drop 97 ford explorer xlt motor in a 2000 explorer sport


If the engine displacement is the same then it will work, although you will have to change "ALL" electronic components on the engines from the 2000 engine to the 1997 engine as these components will be different. If you do not change them you will have several different problems. Most car manufacturers change their electronics year to year and sometimes even mid-year.

How many miles do you have on it? The fuel pump is in the gas tank, I have a 97 explorer and around 75k miles the fuel pump went out. After talking with other Ford truck owners this was pretty common. Its not a cheap repair unless you are willing to drop the tank yourself.

2000 ford explorer cranks & cranks &


check fuse first in fuse box if not that then you will probably have to drop the fuel tank and change the fuel sending unit: Note check it first before installing new one because if for some reason thats not it you can just take it back without to much extra effort of having to drop tank again also check the old one by simple hot wiring it.

2000 Ford Expedition Starting problem


If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

F 350 is having problems with fuel


sounds like you have a problem with the sending unit in the front tank. The pickup may have broken off only allowing the top half of the fuel in the tank to be used. Chances are you will need to drop the tank and check out the sending unit. I would also repair the rear tank, parts are cheap and it is very nice to have a redundant fuel system.
