The computer in your explorer, will not let your truck , because of a blown head gasket or bad seals you need to have it fixed or get a different truck.

I have a 2003 ford ranger the oil pressure guage goes to hald way then 0 back to half way truck runs great with no problems


Check the plug first. Look at the tabs in the plugs. They should be touching from one side to the other. See a gap fix or replace the plug. If it looks good, Replace the oil sending unit.

2003 ford explorer shut-off while driving and it won't turn over, no sound when key is turn.


If the headlights work, I would check for voltage at the key switch and the major fuses.
If nothing works, I would start at the battery and work toward the fuse boxes. Could be a bad ground connection too.

1998 ford explorer oil pressure


Knocking in engine and low oil pressure usually means bad main bearings. May have been caused by bad oil pump or just worn out bearings due to high mileage. If this is problem needs engine or rebuild old engine.

2005-low oil pressurer explore


I'm assuming you have a low oil pressure indicator on the dash. Have you checked the oil level? If it is at correct level, it is possible the oil pressure sender/switch isn't reading the pressure properly. Also it is possible that bearings in the engine are worn out, or that the oil pump isn't working properly. If you don't have a pressure gauge to screw into the engine where the switch is, I would start by replacing the oil pressure switch.

Oil light keeps coming on


1992 ford explorer with the oil light coming on, this can be due to a bad switch, this switch is called the oil pressure switch and is located near the oil filter area, this would be the cheapest way to go first and if the light still comes on then you will need to have a pressure gauge hooked to where the switch goes and the gauge will tell you if its really low on oil pressure and if it is then this may be due to worn engine bearings or weak oil pump, i will tell you i have not seen an explorer with low oil pressure just needing a oil pump, most of the time it is time for another engine. what =i have seen is alot of them with bad oil pressure switches that were making the oil light come on . hope this is helpful, good luck.

I WENT UP TOWN AN WHEN I TRYED TO CRANCK MY FORD EXPLOER NOTHING HAPPEN. THE SERVICE SOON LIGHT CAME ON THE HIGH TEMP/LOW OIL PRESSURE LIGHT CAME ON.BATTERY LIGHT CAME ON .ALL THE GAUGES WORK BUT THE OIL...


Your oil pressure guage won't work unless the engne is running.

As with all electrical problems, they are VERY hard to solve wihtout the vehicle being in front of me.

It could be your starter, your stater connections, your ignition switch, or, or, or

Your best bet is to call your local dealer and ask for an appointment to have them search out your problem, they have all the right tools to do that.

There's no way to even guess at electrical problems without your car in front of me.

I hope this helps some.

Won start low pressure on motor 50 psa


More info Please!! If the compression is 50psi, the motor is shot! However, you should be able to fire it up by pouring a cup of oil down the intake. It will smoke like mad for a few minutes! Frankster016
