1998 Ford Explorer Wont Start. :(

Ok i have a 1998 ford explorer v6. I made a left turn and it shut off. Now it wont start. Trys to turn over but doesnt start. I got a full tank of gas, thinking maybe bad gas, but it still wont start. Maybe fuel filter?

The power steering fluid is now spraying all over the place. So not sure if they are related or just coincidence that they happened at the same time.

So yay. I would love to have some help. Thank you

Only make right turns! Only kidding! Have you hit a bump lately? Ford uses an Inertia switch to cut off fuel flow when triggered.Have that checked and reset.

1995 ford explorer wont start


You could be right. It could also be a bad connection between the battery and starter. It takes 11 volts to crank a Ford starter.
You might want to clean the cables and check the voltage at the starter post.
Could also be a problem with the engine.

It might be your anti-theft alarm system. When the car doesn't start, is there a ticking sound inside the car? If so, hit the unlock button a few times on your keyless entry remote, until the ticking stops, then try to start the car. Hopefully this helps.

Make sure your fuel cut-off (Or inertia) switch hasn't been disabled. Reset by pushing the button.

1998 Ford Explorer will not start when hot


Sounds like the choke is getting stuck. It's an electric choke. So, clean it and its linkages. Also, check the vacuum for leaks. With 123K, I'd start with a cleaning.
