    I changed the plugs wires yesterday. It worked fine until I had it off for a few hours and then it didnt want to start. it still cranks though and i can hear the fuel pump so i know it's not that and i checked all fuses. it seems if i have the car off for hours at a time like overnight once i get home it doesnt start in the morning.

Why wont my 1996 ford explorer start it turns over but wont start


You need to determine whether or not it is getting fuel and spark. It needs both to start. Remove one plug wire and hold it close to the engine while someone cranks it over. There should be spark from the plug wire. If there is spark, you will have a fuel supply issue. Possible fuel pump/relay/wiring/fuel filter/injectors not working to name a few. If no spark, possible crank sensor/ignition module/wiring.

Have an 04 ford freestar 3.9l. Cranks but wit start just changed out spark plugs and wires coil ignition pack and the crank shaft sensor.


Did the engine work fine before you made those changes? Or did you make the changes because of a problem? If yes to the latter question -- what was the problem you were trying to fix?

Stalled 06 Ford Explorer in Water, now it won't start.


How deep was the water? If it was above mid way on the motor, you probably got water in the cylinders. You also may have gotten water under the distributor cap. remove a spark plug and have a helper turn over the motor as you watch for spitting from the spark plug hole. Check the spark plugs closest to the back of the truck. I hope there was no water in the cylinders - if there is spitting, you may have bent a valve - or worse! If no spitting, get some wire dryer spray from your local auto parts store, remove the distributor cap, and liberally spray the inside of the cap and the rotor, as well as they distributor plate and assembly. Give it 30 mins or so to dry out and replace cap, then try starting. If no starting, remove a spark plug and wire. Put the wire on the plug and hold with some INSULATED pliers, holding the electrode end of the plug on the engine. Have a helper start the motor and watch for a BLUE spark from the plug. If the spark is yellow or orange, you don't have enough power to run the motor and may have a faulty coil or coilpack.
Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya!!

I have a 98 explorer and had a similar problem. It wound up being bad spark plug wires. So I changed them and the spark plugs while I was at it. It ran great and still does. I'm not sure if that's your problem I would need more information.

2002 ford explorer 4.0lwill turn over but back fires when trying to start


How many miles on engine? Skipped timing chain is possible, or bad coil pack and spark plug wiring.Nobody could've switched wiring positions to spark plugs on you,could they?
I suppose a crank sensor up front could do this?don-ohio

My 2002 Ford Explorer wont crank!


I'm assuming the coilpack got wet!! Check if there is any power to the coil before changing. If thats fine, replace the coil. If there is no power, check your electrical circuit for the coil. Hopefully this helps

Check this link. Hope this helps:)

http://www.ford-forums.com/ford-explorer/888-95-ford-explorer-not-starting.html

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.

1993 ford explorer


If you have fuel, replace the coil plate, you fried the diode in the coil plate causing it to not fire to test you need a spark plug detector light to see if your getting spark. If you just disconnect the wire and test it like the old spark plug system you will fry the coil or the diode in the plate, I forget what ford calls it, GM calls it a firing diode?? I think rusty memory.
