Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Sometimes it will not start on a warm day after driving for a while then stop someware and won't start again. Has plenty of battery and starter is good it just sputters for a second and shuts off. But if let sit for half hour or forty min it starts right up. What the hell!

Check your coil pack it sounds like it is shorting out the pack has a gel in it when the gel starts to break down the pack shorts itself out 45 mins is enough to solidify the gel thats why it starts. it can also be a bad crank sensor.

Getting spark? Power coming from the battery I think you meant to say, if I am correct. If it won't jump start, sounds like a cable from battery to vehicle is not connected. Igniton switch connection or fuse maybe. Check the daisy chaining of the negative battery cable for clean contacts. Also a starter relay could be bad. Just some more suggestions to add. Don't drive to far from home until repaired. Towing cost too much as you know by now.
Never did like remote locks, We as humans seem to be getting more and more depended on convienances that cause us more inconvienances. Could try a positive cable to starter to check if it will turn over the starter. Voltage regulator could cause battery not to charge while driving. When car dies, do lights work or they dim from engine sucking battery dry. Just some suggestions.

Won't start battery is ok.


REmove the starter for checking . IT may require a new solenoid or you may have a dead bar in the commutator which will require a new starter.. This is evidenced by sometimes you can start easy and other time the solenoid clicks every time you turn the key and then suddenly starts. IT comes from the armature stopping with the daed bar under a brush and when it turns just enough to touch another bar away it goes

Have a '94 S-10 Blazer Tahoe 4X4 and it starts


My suspicion is a starter going bad. Sometimes when starters get old and worn they will start good when the engine is cold but not when the engine is warmed up. Did you perhaps notice that lately is seemed to drag when you tried starting, especially warm or it seemed to crank a little slower? I'd replace the starter. Hope this helps.

I presume you mean 'grinds when I turn the ignition..(to start)'.
If this is so, it's most likely the starter motor 'drive (overun) clutch is faulty.

Either replace the starter motor complete or replace the drive clutch assy on the original.
The latter should be cheaper (especially if you can source a new 'drive clutch' and fit it yourself).

2004 A 8L won"t start


starter wont click because there's not enough "juice" to turn it over. this isnt because of the battery as you have just replaced it. it is due to a bad alternator recharging the battery as you drive. if it were only a fuse it would be the solenoid in the starter. but if it had started after you installed the battery then its not the solenoid. solution: buy a refurbished alternator and
