    Do you have any "check engine" lights showing up on your dash, have somone plug in a OBD II reader to find any codes.

Is gas petal on ford explorer is almost on the floor,also it cranks but wont start


it may be your fuel pump, take off your air cleaner and pump the gas with the engine off and see if you smell or see gas, then try it with someone turning the engine over and see if u can smell or see gas, if not your pump is probably shot

the iac code has nothing to do with the maf . the maf is your mass air flow sensor and it is in the air tube going to the throttle body. the iac is your idle air control valve that is in the throttle body next to the throttle position sensor

your vehicle is fuel injected you should not have to pump the gas pedal plugs and wires ill bet that solves your problem and changeing the fuel filter wont hurt and a fuel injection cleaning wont hurt if you havent had one done to it

2002 ford explorer won't start unless you push gas pedal down. Check engine light has come on. Shouldn't have to use gas pedal to start. What could cause this.
