Hi Friend:

#1) Yes it sounds like your heading in the Right direction, It could be a Coil is Defective, Sometimes the Coil Wire it alone can cause the Problem.

#2) Check All you Wire Connectins to and From Coil Pack a see if there Clean no Corrosion Build Up on Any including the Coils.

$3) Also Have you Checked your Spark Plugs for Fouling conditions? Or the Gap.AND your Spark Plug Wires could be Breaking down after engine is HOT.

#4) I Know you said you have good Fuel Pressure,But it would'nt Hurt to Check the Filter to in Case its Partially Plugged I had a T-Bird that would do the Samething and Ended up being something Inexpensive and Easy to Replace.

#5) Also Besides your Cam Shaft Sensor which it could be, but no Code on it does
nt eliminate the Possibility.

#6) Also Check all your Injector Connections and your Fuel Pressure Regulator.

#6) Last but The Least is Your Ingnition Switch or the Wiring to and From Switch.

Please let me know how i've helped you and the Quality of my Solutions by Voting and a Testamony would be Great,

Thank For Using FIXYA From: d_hubbs

Have a Good Day Sir !

Why does my ford explorer start and idle good but after it warms up it loses all power back fires and fuel pressure drops to 0 psi

It may well be that your fuel pump has seen better days. An in-tank pump actually does a lot of work lifting the fuel and pushing it to the engine (that's why some vehicles have a second fuel pump fitted - to assist).

I once owned A VW that had the same symptoms as you describe. Sometimes, at speed, it would just cut out.

It was the fuel pump at fault and a new one cured the problem.
It was almost as if the old fuel pump would work properly for a while and then cut out. It would deliver fuel at the correct pressure for a while and then...

Car runs perfect then starts missing real bad then stalls

Not unusual for fuel pumps to begin to fail once they are heated up from running. First thing in the morning pump is cool, then as you drive, it heats up and begins to lose pressure. After sitting a 1/2hr-1hr, it may start again and run fine for a short time and start to act up again. Had similar problem and found good fuel pressure when tank and pump cool, but lost pressure once vehicle driven a distance and pump heated up. The hotter the weather, the shorter the distance I could drive. If you can somehow set it up to have fuel pressure checked when it starts to act up, that would certainly help confirm if fuel pressure is the culprit.

As with any no start issue, you will have to figure out if you are dealing with a spark or fuel problem to proceed.
Either problem could be a faulty relay.
If it is a no spark problem, check to see if you are getting voltage to the coil.
Any trouble codes stored in the computer ?

Car stalls while driving. Will start after about five minutes. Is not flooded. Doesn't usually do this until after it has been driven a bit. Does it more in warm weather. Check engine light sometimes...

I'd have fuel pressure tested. I had a 95' did same thing. Cold winter day, worked fine, as soon as it got warmer, or hot out, it would quit, and re-start 20 minutes later and go for a distance then die again. If I parked in the shade on a hot day, I'd get further before it quit for the first time. I started carrying a fuel pressure gauge with me. Cool in the morning my fuel pressure was up to spec @ 49-50psi. Once it got warm/hot out and it died, Hooked up gauge and it was at 2-5psi. Let it sit and cool off 20-30 minutes, pressure would jump back up and run good until fuel pump got hot again and then pressure dropped off and car quit. It sure sounds like the fuel pump, but the hard part will be getting the car to the shop at the right time, or they will need to let it run on the lot until it quits to confirm the pressure drop. One thing you can try is when car quits, have a can of WD-40 or quick start with you and a screwdriver. Loosen the clamp on the air intake hose where it connects to the front of the throttle body and pull it off. With vehicle off, turn throttle linkage so the plate opens up enough to spray WD-40 a second or 2 in the throttle body. Then try to start it. If it starts and runs momentarily, then you can be pretty sure it's fuel related and my guess is the pump needs replacement.

did your mechaniic check the fuel injectors, it very possibly could be 1 of them acting up, also have your mechanic to give your vehicle a fuel pressure test, this will tell if the pressure is within the specs for the year and engine size that you have. also have him to check the coil, or coils, 1 of them could be heating up, and breaking down, and after cooled for a while, they have been known to work again, untill they heat up again. also have him to check the fuel pump relay to see if it is getting bad, he might have to tempoarily replace it with another one just to see if it is acting up.

it could be a bad fuel pressure regulator. or a blocked fuel filter. heres the regulator symtoms. the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start ( usually in the morning )many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fowled spark plugs, replacement is only cure. ( black soot on plugs, blake smoke from tail pipe, running rough and stalling. check fuel filter first.

Car shuts down when driving.ley sit for a short time will start again.but will repeat every few miles

You really need a fuel pressure gauge, run it in the driveway until it stalls, and see if you lose fuel pressure. Check the oil, if it's too low the sensor will shut off the fuel pump.

Engine stalls. 4 times engine stalls, let sit for

sounds to me that there could be an engine temperature switch that is malfunctioning or not working at all. the temperature switch tells the engine that its cold and that the fuel injection system should operate in cold mode. the switch then tells the computer to start the engine in cold mode. if it malfunctions, the engine controlling unit confuses itself and then cuts off. this is an early sign of that unit failing until the car won't start at all. it's just wear and tear and time that does these things. a good mechanic should help you out quick and should be a couple of ours work. good luck
