Even after taking out the fuel pump relay and trying to depressurize the system, I can't get the fuel line disconnected from the fuel filter from my 1999 ford explorer 5.0 liter. I have the coupl

Check the valve on the fuel rail. Looks like an over sized tire valve. Push the center of the valve, if there is still pressure it will spray fuel. If it is still pressurized then you probably pulled the wrong relay.

Have a 1999 ford explorer sport 4x4, cranks want start. have replaced fuel pump, crank senser and cam senser, checked fuzes, replaced computer. doesnt seem to be firing

When you turn the key on you should beable to hear the fuel pump come on. Other than that you have a fuel pressure test port, looks just like a tire valve stem get a little probe press the valve after cranking fuel should come out strongly and not dribble out. If is doesnt seem to be firing your going to have check the coil pack for spark from the coil pack take one plug wire out and put it in a position that as you crank the vehicle you will be able to see spark jump or even hear give it a 1/4 air gap from its connection. If you dont have spark and your timing chain isnt broken you need to check for power the choice of tool is a test light.or volt meter. If you dont have either test tool we will go by sound when you turn the key on the engine fuse box has relays do you hear them click. That click noise will be fuel pump relay and PCM relay for power inpect those relays for corrode connections you mainly have a power problem and inspect for proper ground a missing ground can also cause the ECM to not fire the coils2_26_2012_7_32_43_am.gif

My explorer turns but doesnt start.

If you don't hear the fuel pump and have replaced it already you may have gotten a bad one. If you have not replaced it you probably need to. Alot of the after markets that cell just the inner pump usually you have to change the outer plug also as the original plugs do not always match up so its better to get both and do the job once.

2000 explorer is dying while I drive. It will start back up but with some difficulty. Could it be the fuel pump? The gauges do flicker a little but doesnt seem like the alternator. I drove 300 miles...

which gauge flickers. When last did u changed your fuel filter I usually changed it every 6 months and they are not very expensive. ONce your fuel filter is dirty eventually some debris will come out of the filter then it will go to your injectors and that is not good.
