Great SUV, I have the same model; for Ford Ranger/Explorer/Mountaineer 1991-1999 check this procedure to Fuel Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION...
(see Figures 1, 2 and 3)

To gain access to the fuel pump, it is necessary to remove the fuel tank.

  1. Depressurize the fuel system and remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
  2. Remove any dirt that has accumulated around the fuel pump attaching flange, to prevent it from entering the tank during service.
  3. Turn the fuel pump locking ring counterclockwise using a locking ring removal tool and remove the locking ring.
  4. Remove the fuel pump and bracket assembly.
  5. Remove the seal gasket and discard it.
To install:
  1. Put a light coating of heavy grease on a new seal ring to hold it in place during assembly. Install it in fuel tank ring groove.

  1. Insert the fuel pump assembly into the fuel tank, then secure it in place with the locking ring. Tighten the ring until secure.
  2. Install the tank in the vehicle.
  3. Install a minimum of 10 gallons of fuel and check for leaks.
  4. Install a pressure gauge on the throttle body valve and turn the ignition ON for 3 seconds. Turn the key OFF , then repeat the key cycle five to ten times until the pressure gauge shows at least 30 psi. Reinspect for leaks at the fittings.
  5. Remove the pressure gauge. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

Hope help with this; remember comment and rated this help. TY for using Fixya.

How to get to the fuel pump in a ford explorer


The fuel pump is mounted inside the fuel tank. Ford doesn't provide any sort of access "door" to get to the pump with the tank still installed in the vehicle. The tank will have to be removed to replace the pump.

1996 Ford Explorer XLT V6 - will start but stalls after 5 mins.


This can be cause by many things, such as a fuel pump going bad / or is bad, fuel injectors need cleaned / replaced, fuel filter dirty just to name a few. Could also have a vapor lock where the fuel line is running to close to a heat source like the manifold or engine and the heat creates a vacum in the fuel line stopping the flow of fuel. Best bet have a garage repair shop look at it. To many hit and miss causes.

Check this link. Hope this helps:)

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.
