You should have one that goes into one of the Cylinder Heads and another that is near the Thermostat Housing.

I have a 2005 Ford explorer xlt sport and it won't start.It ran fine until one night I put gas in,parked it,got up the next morning and it wouldn't start.It acts like it wants to,but won't.So far we have...

Test the injectors for power going to them. Check fuel pump pressure as you may need to adjust. Finally, a whiff of starting fluid may let engine run for a few seconds indicating it really Is a fuel issue.
You have both a fuel pump relay and an ECC relay in the Powerbox.
If this is a Double Overhead Cam V-8, the are parts called "Cam Phasers" which can stick and throw off timing.
"Cold Start Sequence" This is a enrichment function which is controlled by water temperature. A bad temperature sensor can eliminate this process. The fuel mix is set rich and the cam timing is changed to promote easier starts.
Most of the items I mentioned will not throw a diagnostic Code. You did not indicate whether a Code was set. The throttle position sensor can be checked by disconnecting the electric lead and using an Ohmmeter on the part while you move the throttle. The Ohms should change smoothly.
Would like to know what you find.
