    Check spark if you have spark then you need to check the fuel pressure.

Run the fault codes and look for cam/crank position sensor problems ( broken timing belt) check immobiliser for correct operation.

SOURCE: my 2000 ford explorer turns over but wont start

yes the fuel pump is running, you know because when you put the key up and ready to start you can hear it. I know just what you are talking about I have had that same problem. It is about a $4,00 part should not be more then $10.00. So open the hood and then go to the fuse box you will want to change the fuel pump relay that is in the middle of power point and pcm power relay. Also there is another that has to do with the fuel and that is called fuel system this part is located on the right side of the fuse box and the other is on the left.
I hope that you have every thing work out for you please let me know what happens I hope it works out well.

Do you have the fuel tester hooked the in the overgrown air valve on the fuel rail in the back of the engine? Or do you have the fuel line unhooked in the back and hooked to the pressure pump? You want the fuel pressure to be in that 60 lb range so if you are hooked into the pressure valve on the fuel rail allowing fuel to go through, then I am betting it is the fuel pressure regulator. To get to that, you have to take the throttle body off and take the plastic plenum that covers the injector packs. On the back of the mount where your six pack of injectors are sits the pressure regulator. If it is faulty then it is dumping fuel instead of holding the pressure like it should.
Get a Chilton or Clymer manual and it shows you in pretty good detail how to fix it. I've done it to my 98 S10 with the same engine.

If you unhooked the fuel line so you are losing pressure from the line back to the pump then I would say your pump is letting fuel back to the tank when it shuts off. My money is on the first possibility though.

Good luck

before the fuel are coming to the injectors block is entered in a litle box like valve, is coming there with a ruber tube open it there and let your wife to crank and see if fuel is coming right up there. if yes se your spark plugs and spark wires because there are not working or probably a high tension coil isn giving too much current to spare in sparc plugs. if no so check yor fuel pump and his way from the tank in the point you are looking for.

Try a new relay first. This may not be good news if that does not work. If you can find the EEC (computer) and unplug it, then replace the fuse-if it blows you have another cheaper part on the circuit thats bad.
If the fuse does not blow, then the EEC must be shorted.
If you have to replace the EEC you may find a kindly dealer with a cash-for-clunker sitting there to violate. Salvage yards have them, Ebay sells them. I have seen them at swap meets for $20. They are a high price part even rebuilt at Dealers or autoparts stores.

It won't crank up and it sat up 2 years


No gas, plugged fuel filter? Turn on the key but don't crank engine, listen with door open towards gas tank. You should hear a click and a slight motor pump noise for a couple seconds. If not then your sending unit failed.

You should hear the fuel pump run momentarily when the key is in the Run position. Ensure the engine has a good spark by removing one of spark plug boots. Stick a phillips screwdriver in the boot, and hold the handle of the screwdriver, and allow the shaft near ground. (motor works best) Have someone crank the engine and look for a good blue spark arch from the screwdriver and engine. If your getting good spark, then check the fuel pressure on the fuel injection rail.

2000 ford 4.0 explorer cranks but fails to start. It acts like it starts after sitting all night but then only cranks, what is wrong?


Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start


Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

MY 98 FORD EXPLORER CRANKS BUT DOES NOT TURN OVER. I HAVE POWER BUT MY VEHICLE WON'T START


You mean that the starter is turning (cranks) the engine but the engine won't start? Be sure it is getting fuel. Turn the key to the on position and you should hear the fuel pump in the fuel tank run for a few seconds. If so that is good. If the fuel is being delivered then possibly you have no spark which usually is the electronic ignition module. The only way to test it is to replace it. Your timing chain or belt could be broken or "jumped" as the third possibility. I am leaning toward ignition module being bad as they just die without warning and nothing can revive them.

Were can i locate the fuel regulator on my 2002 explore. change the fuel pump explore still wont start. still acts like its not getting fuel


before you do anything else , scan your vehicle with an OBD 2 scanning tool . If you don't get any codes: make sure your fuel pump cycles on for a few seconds when you turn the key from off to on, (you can hear it huming}...if it does then replace the in line fuel filter. if your fuel pump doesn't cycle for a few seconds when the key is turned on, check your fuel cut off (vehicle rollover )safety switch and reset it if necessary. finally , check the fuel pump relay circuit.

My explorer ran out of gas, i filled it up to about a half a tank, now it just turns over but wont start


if it's fuel injected,look on the fuel rail for a schrader valve--looks just like a valve stem on a tire but shorter.remove cap,again just like on a tire.turn key to on-push valve stem in as if to let air out if you get air,then gasoline,you have just bled the system.replace cap,start car.if you get no gas,remove gas tank cap,turn on key,listen for ""hum'' of fuel tank.no hum,check fuel pump.modern[plastic] fuel pumps will self destruct if run dry,even for a short time.
