Will it keep running after it start?
if not it could be the fuel pump.
Lau down under the truck and bang on the bottom of the fuel tank in the center hard with your hand a few times and see if it starts. If so you need a new fuel pump.

CHECK YOUR FUEL PUMP

SOURCE: truck will not start

Do a fuel pressure check. Sounds like your fuel pump is weak or your putting the filter in the wrong way or incorrect filter.

SOURCE: truck turns over but dont

sounds like oneof 2 classic problems and ill start with the most likely:

1. yoru fuel filter requires replacing, this is normally caused by running it regulary on low fuel so it picks up all the rubbish in the gas tank.

2. the fuel pump is not working whcu could be blown fuse, cicuit breaker, malfunctioning solenoid or a loose wire. start with checkingthe fuse.

let me know how you get on.

thanks
iain

Most likely you have a small air leak somwhere in the system, check your fuel filters and make sure they are tight as well as the lines to the injectors and bleed the fuel system to eleminate the possibility of trapped air in the system. The fuel pump also could be getting week, have you tested the fuel pressure? Is your tank over half full? if not it should at least be 1/4 full to prevent fuel pump damage.

Is this car fuel injected? If so there shlould be a flow sensor somewhere on the intake . Many of the patrs stores will loan an OBDI or II and you could do a diagnosis on the engine. This should indicate a faulty flow sensor among other problems.
Lots of luck.
I have the same year, model and engine with Automatic tranny, This was the year the Explorer replaced he Bronco and there seems to be a bunch of prototype parts. I just replaced the headlight/turn signal multifunction switch for $185.00. :(
Not a lot of information about this year. But it is a fun car :)

Loose power while driving, wont go into gear unless cut truck off first


Check the fluid level of the transmission. Check fluid quality. It should be red in color and smell clean. If it's dark and has a burnt odor, your transmission is slipping and is on it's way out.
