Check your ground cables for corrosion or looseness- it starts slow bwcause everything is still cold, after a few seconds of cranking the voltage heats the cables up and makes a better connection... also check your positive cables.

My 1998 ford contour sport will not turn over. I replaced the battery and plugs. It fired right up. Then the next day it tries to start but won't crank.


sounds like a bad cam/crank sensor, or bad inertia switch. Ford trucks usually have a switch on the inside firewall that shuts off fuel pump in the event of a wreck. These switches go out occasionaly and will not allow vehichle to start

1998 ford explorer oil pressure


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.

Ford Explorer XLT does not start


have the battery tested, u are not describing a lack of fuel problem, u either have a defective battery or a corroded positive battery cable, that is very comm on on your year and model, I am a Ford dealer tech so I know what is going on with these explorers, it is seldom a fuel pump concern, the slow or no crank is the key factor here.
