Question about 1993 Ford Festiva

1 Answer

My 2000 Ford Explorer, Eddie Baur edition, died while I was driving it. The shop thought it was a fuel pump issue, however after putting a new one on and changing some spark plug wires, the truck started but then died. They are unable to start it back up. They are getting another computer tomorrow to see if they can figure out what is wrong but they are saying it is probably dead. The truck has over 200,000 miles on it. Can a vehicle truly be unfixable?

Any thing made by man can be fixed if the repairer has enough experience to face the challenge.. Unless you have jump started the car recently then there should be nothing wrong with the CPU . I would have done a fault code test first and checked for sensor that will cause the fault-- Starting and stopping could be an immobiliser problem---bad ignition switch ( not keeping contact in the run position)---low fuel pressure from bad fuel regulator ---intermittent contact on a cam/crank position sensor. or a dozen other sensors that affect the engine.

It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

SOURCE: 1994 Ford F250 Turbo Diesel 7.3 l Overdrive blinking

ford diesels from that year had a funky problem getting the crank triggers to work 100% of the time the software fix they refer to might be the one that alloud a poorer quality signal from the crank trigger to work , this is not a fix but a work around (no good)

first verify that a fault for the crank trigger sensor is held in memory with a scan tool (there not that expensive now)
if so replace it and don't forget to seal it with locktite blue (or it'll unscrew itself)
the trans od needs to see the crank trigger signal to determine "load" to high no Od bad signal makes eec go into can't decide mode and drops in/out of od
ohh a dead giveaway it's the sensor your tach will bounce (allot) at a fixed engine speed (2000 rpm)

also i just looked there's a TSB on throttle posisition sensors(oil vapor intrusion) as well affecting Od on transmissions but that being bad will make engine speed surge too and you did'nt mention that ?

yea EEC test is the way to go but get your own

2000 ford explorer died. I was told it was a fuel pump problem, but auto shop put new one on, replaced some spark plugs and said it started for about 5 seconds to die again. They say it may be a goner...


some cars are called"throw away cars" BUT it sounds like a PCM problem. the fuel delivery quad driver has possibly gone out or the fuel pump relay. Yours is not a throw away car.

How do you change a transfer case in a 1999 Ford Explorer Eddie Baur edition?


Well, you unbolt the old one and take it out, but you knew that...The issue here is the weight, you really need a trans jack to get these components out, and it is tons easier in a lift. You may be happier having a shop do this job.

Yes you do, the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank and the easiest way to pull it out is to drop the fuel tank. Good Luck.
