Hi first off, have you checked your fuses, this could be an obviuse thing but most people dont, relays in the fuse box? find the relay for the fuel pump and tap it it might be the internal switch has stuck and might need replacing, also, when you turn your ignition on, do you hear a whirling sound from the rear of the vehicle? if you turn your ignition on but only to the first position not cranking, keep listening to see if you can hear the pump cut in, this will last a few seconds if not check the first bits that i said, then you will have to get the fuel pump in the tank tested, you could go under the hood( i think thats what you say in the USA) locate the fuel line, remove the line to the supply put a bucket under it or somthing to catch the fuel if it works, turn ignition to the first possition if you do not get any fuel out, then revert back to the above....hope this helps

2002 ford explorer eddie bauer crank but won't start up.


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

2001 lincoln ls wont start with v-8 engine


When you say it won't start do you mean the engine will not turn over with the starter like in a dead battery type of no start, or do you mean the engine cranks over fine but doesn't start? If the latter is the case check the fuel pressure, the test port is on the top of the engine and looks like a tire fill valve, it should be at least 45 PSI while cranking the engine over, you will need to buy a universal fuel injection fuel pressure test gauge from the parts store, about $20.00 should do it.

01 ford explorer sport won't stay running. turns over fine and starts but quits right away


Check for vacuum leak at intake manifold or bad fuel pump relay or have fuel pressure checked to see if fuel pump is working properly 40-45 psi it should be pumping

2001 ford taurus with the 3.0 after sitting a few hours when i go to start will crank and crank and crank for what seems like ever, will start easily after that but when i go to start it for the first time...


Its not the oil, increasing temperature will thin out the oil. If it cranks easily but won't start it could be the spark plugs or the spark plug wires. When they heat up, especially if they are old, they won't perform well. Pull off one of the wires and hold it close to the plug, try to crank the engine and look for a spark. If it sparks them try removing a plug and check to see if it looks wet. If its bone dry it might not be getting fuel.

Won't start -tries to turn over but doesn;t make it


If it's cranking and not starting then it would most likely be the fuel pump. But if it's cranking slowly and tries to turn over and wont. It may be an electrical problem, try checking the cap and rotor, plug wires and battery, Easiest fix and the first place to start though would be the fuel pump.
