01 ford explorer sport won't stay running. turns over fine and starts but quits right away

Check for vacuum leak at intake manifold or bad fuel pump relay or have fuel pressure checked to see if fuel pump is working properly 40-45 psi it should be pumping

GMC 2000 sierra pick up 1500 sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Battery sounds good so I guess battery and alternator are ok. For several years fuel gauge doesn't work and...

It sure could be. But, "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

Check all of your vacuum hoses to see if one has come loose or , is broken or cracked. Especially around the EGR and Mass Air Flow. Hope it helps.

I have a 2000 montero Sport. How do I get to the other spark plugs for a tune up? Do I have to remove the intake manifold?

In order for you to get to the other spark pluggs,the intake manifold must be removed,that's the only solution.

Take care..

My 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo is having trouble staying idle. It turns off. Is it time for a tune up or what? It also doesn't start right away like it used to.

Check idle air control valve, map sensor and manifold temp sensor...You are going to need to do some testing to find the problem. Test procedures are in most inexpensive manuals. Of course if ignition parts are old, it does no harm to replace them, along with air filter etc. Never "cheap out" on ignition parts.... you get what you pay for.

Have the plastic intake manifold and gasket replaced. I have posted this fixed at least once before and have seen it numerous times.

Tune up

just remove all the bolts and hoses atached to the upper intake or go to the autoparts and buy a book for this specific car
