If the crankshaft sensor fails you wont have spark or fuel. Also the ASD relay under the hood powers up the fuel pump and ignition system. Aslo the camshaft sensor would cause a no start. Without actually testing these parts noone would be able to tell if maybe the problem is not a sensor but actually a failed computer.

1996 ford explorer stalls like it ran out of gas

It sounds like a weak fuel pump is causing the occasional stalling, particularly when attempting acceleration at normal driving speeds. It's not unusual for it to idle with no problem if the pump is weak. Also, check the fuel lines to.from the fuel pump. If all else fails, you might consider adding an auxiliary fuel pump to counter the weak OEM pump.

Truck stalled when low on gas. Getting spark. Starts w starting fluid. Changed fuel filter no start. Pump comes on for a few seconds when the key is turned on then turns off. What should I do now? Change...

Hello. There may be a couple of issues here. First of all, how do you know that the car is low on gas and not almost out of gas? If you are using the fuel gage as your only source of information, I know that many older pickup gages are way off. I have one friend who runs out of gas when his gage gets to 1/2 tank. That all said, it sounds like your fuel pump is going south!

Truck won't start. sounds like it's out of gas

put some HEET or some other gasoline antifreeze in your tank and crank the engine over a few times. If it doesnt start, try starting it again every hour or so.

I have 1990 chevy pickup 1500 4 wheel 350 eng. throttle body inj. the truck started missing and stalling i changed fuel filter and it ran good for 2 days then started the same thing so i changed fuel pump...

It sounds like the engine is pulling fuel from the tank, and not replacing it with air, causing a vacuum to build in the tank. The vacuum, may build to the point that it resists the fuel pump's efforts to **** fuel from it. If the vacuum is sufficient, it may collapse the tank, or expand the fuel enough for the engine manifold vacuum to **** raw gas into the evaporative emissions control system, hence the cannister.

Replacing the fuel pump, and filter will both break this vacuum, and make it run well for a few more miles, until the vacuum builds again.

The tank is usually vented to relieve pressure and vacuum through the gas cap.

Basically, sounds like a bad gas cap.

Try driving with the cap loose or removed. If that fixes it, buy a new cap. Preferably a locking one, as the amount of fuel these trucks hold is pretty tempting to less than honest folks. My 1990 C2500 has a 34 gallon tank.

Coil?? with the other symptoms, how'd you come up with that?
