What engine does yours have 4.0 L 5.0L ? Do you have battery voltage at the red an lite green wire at the coil packs ? The other wires are ground control from the powertrain control module ! You could test these by using a test light. If you have battery voltage at the coils you could possibly have a bad crankshaft position sensor !

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.

SOURCE: 1999 ford Explorer 4.0 v6 4x4 will cranck but not start has spark

Honestly it's probably just dirty spark plugs. Did you pull any of the spark plugs and inspect the tips for build up? A couple things to remember:

1.) If the timing chain broke, the valves wouldn't be opening so you wouldn't have any air coming out of the exhaust during crank. You said it smells like you're getting fuel, so I'm assuming that means you're smelling the exhaust fumes, right?

2.) The crank sensor tells the ignition system when to send a spark to the plugs. If you're getting good spark, it's unlikely that the crank sensor is faulty.

If it's too soon for spark plugs to need replacing, check your sensors. A faulty oxygen sensor for example could cause your engine to run 'rich', resulting in faster crud build up on spark plug tips.

SOURCE: 2002 Madza 626 4cyl car will not start. Has spark

It could be: clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump, or the cutoff switch. Could be fuel pump relay. It's in the engine compartment fues block, and labeled "Fuel Pump"

If it's either the filter or the pump, replace both at the same time, it's cheaper.

The fuel cutoff in located in the trunk, along the driver side rear fender, you have to pull all the carpeting and such out on that side to get to it. It's marked "Fuel cutoff" Not sure on the 626, you might just have to push the reset button on the module.

However I doubt this is your problem I would think it's either the relay, the filter or pump.

SOURCE: fuel and spark/turns over but wont start

you don't say if it wants to start, if it tries, if it does, maybe an issue with exhaust gas reculation system stuck open. OR dirty or clogged fuel nozzels.

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.

2004 ford explorer will not start but turns over


For a no start , cranks over ok. be sure you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail first, before checking the injectors. There should be more that 40 psi at the rail... if not .. you might have a fuel pump problem. Even if you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail... the next thing I would check for,,, is spark !! Make sure you have spark at the spark plugs. The order would be... fuel pressure first and then spark , , then injector pulse. !! Then plugged exhaust.... then bad fuel then engine timing. The injectors have power to them all the time. The PCM controls the ground to the injectors. So you would have to monitor the ground side of the injectors. So checking injectors is kinda complicated. Hope this helps you. Good luck.

I have a 94 ford explorer 4.0 that turns over but wont start. i have spark at the wire and 38 lbs of fuel at the rail! what else can i do?


Did you change the fuel 8 dollar fuel filter in the back under the truck? You should fuel rails usually are not a problem ever in a bigger ford lincoln, Did you check all relays, locating the fuel shut off relay? why i ask, is when you turn the key to the point beofre start the ford goes wheeee, and thats the fuel pump priming its self, if you dont hear that you need to check your fuses, then locate the relay that controls that, ten dont get a new relay, just carfully crack the out side of it off, because its a little magnetic electical switch inside the relay which you can just push on to see if that is the problem, before you buy a new relay, its free.

My 2002 Ford Explorer XLT won't start. I will


This looks like typical Ford Issue of clogged Fuel filter or computer controlling the sparks on your spark plugs also
directs the timing so it could also be a sensor that works
with the timing of the Sparks. This assumes that you have enough fuel and good spark plugs.

or
Go get an inline spark tester. (Harbor Freight 3 bucks) If there is spark in the plugs then it is probably the fuel pump. Check\replace the relay first. If that not it then your fuel pump is probably bad. If you know how you can check the fuel rail pressure with a gauge to see if the pump is working. You can try to listen for the pump. You have to listen real close. Get inside the vehicle (close the doors)and put your ear to the floor in the cargo area. Have someone turn the key to the second click right before starting it. You should here it pressurize the fuel lines. If you done hear this then your fuel pump is bad. I hope this helps.

Where is the fuel filter in 2002 ford explorers


The fuel filter is on the passenger side under the door near the front wheel well. It is behind a curved shield and a flat plate covering the fuel filter that is marked "fuel filter replace".
There is an aluminum plate held on with 3 13mm bolts. Remove it. Behind it there is a black plastic shield, held on with 2 10mm nuts. Remove that and you will see the fuel filter, and the bracket that holds it on.

On 1999 4.0 Explorer, engine turns over but does not start.


An engine needs three things to run : Fuel, Compression and Fire. Check to make sure you are getting fire to the spark plugs. The fuel pressure regulator on the injector rail may be bad. There is a schrader valve on the injector rail, check to see if there is fuel there. It is a valve like a tire valve, depress it slightly to see if there is fuel there.
