The coolant temp sensor is responsible for starting fuel mix. As far as the fuel filter is in question, go ahead and change it. Good Luck-Ned-

Will turn over and will not start like it is not getting gas fuel pump is working


Is there any gas in the tank? Are you getting a spark at the plugs? If yes to the 2 then check fuel injection and compression. If no to Q2 check timing system (belt, etc).

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.

I'm helping a friend to get his 02 Ford Explorer going after sitting for about 6 months, put in new battery and checked fluids then tried starting. it would crank over but not fire up,tried numerous times...


You need fuel, air, and spark to start it. Make sure the engine is getting fuel. Make sure the pump is working. Fuel goes from the pump to the filter, through the lines, to the engine. If the engine is getting gas, you need to check for spark. This concerns the spark plugs/coils, wires, distributor, coil pack, dist.cap, rotor, cam sensor, crank sensor, timing belt, ecm. It is a lot of things but anyone of them can make the car not start. That is why it is important to do a fuel check and a spark check. If it gets fuel, that cancels out fuel. Same for the ignition system, where you get the spark. If you have any questions, just let me know.

My 98 explorer turns over but will not start. The fuel pump kicks on for half a second, then immediately shuts off. Does anyone know how to go about fixing this?


your truck has two sensors that are in control.There is a camshaft sensor that controls when the fuel injectors open according to camshaft position.If this one is bad the fuel injectors wont open and the engine wont get any fuel.It also has a crankshaft sensor that is in control of allowing spark to the propor spark plug at the right time.If this sensor is bad you will not have any spark to any of the spark plugs.The fuel pump will only run for 2 to 3 seconds unless the motor starts,it is designed that way and it primes the fuel system and brings it up to pressure.(aprox 40 psi )

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.
