My 1996 ford explorer ran out of coolant/antirfreeze. i tried starting it and the engine turned, but then sputtered and stopped. i refilled the radiator and the coolant reservoir and allowed the engine to cool down. the engine cranks, but doesnt turn. i hit the emergency fuel pump reset, and the engine still doesnt turn.

What you mean that when you start with the key , does the engine crank or turn , -- if it does not turn - you need to take all the spark plugs - and then crank the engine to see if the engine will turn , - will if not - the engine is locking some where.- if it turn when the plugs come out- water might come with it- that means the head jont is blown ........... reply

Sounds like you may have a blown head gasket from the overheating of the engine. If so, water seeped into 1 or more cylinders and the piston is slugged against the water in a cylinder that is on the compression stroke. (both valves are closed on this stroke as the piston is moving upward)
First, check the oil dipstick for a discolored oil/water mixture. It will be a brown/grey color or lighter color. This will tell you water is mixed with the oil. If so, you will have to do a head gasket replacement.

How do i stop my 1994 ford explorer from sputtering and shutting down when driving at low speed


Not getting enough fuel. There are two coolant temperature sensors one for the gauge. one for the computer. the one to the computer monitors fuel. When it fails the engine is slow to start the first try and there is a strong odor of gasoline. The engine will run rough at some speeds and sometimes stall.

Tempature gauge


Remove the serpentine belt, check to see if there is play in the water pump pulley. If there is no play in the pulley, then the water pump is fine. Remove the thermostat and lower radiator hose and flush both Radiator and the Engine with a hose for a few minutes, put everything back together, refill coolant. Test, let me know if it worked. Thanks

I have a '96 Explorer that has started overheating. I checked the fluids, which were low and refilled them. It continued to get hot and when the fluids were checked again they were empty-same day. I...


Are you just refilling the coolant resevoir, or also adding antifreeze/water mix to the radiator itself?
When the engine is cool, remove the radiator cap and add antifreeze/water mix until the radiator is full. Leave the radiator cap off and leave the hood up and start the engine and let it idle. As the engine warms up the thermostat should open up around 180 degrees and allow the water to circulate in the radiator. If you see no movement of the water and the heat continues to rise to an unsafe temperature, your thermostat is stuck and needs replacement

HAve a 1996 Ford explorer v-8 that is overheating,


With cool engine... open radiator cap and look inside radiator. Do you see lots of sediment and calcium growth on radiater tubes? If yes, a coring may be needed. If only slightly bad, a radiator flush may be needed... then refill with 50 percent antifreeze.

Good thermostat, cleaned cooling system, non-leaking water pump, good water flow via water pump... nothing else left (unless you put the thermostate in backwards)..

Let us know

Combustion?


I didn't see where you mentioned the MAF, or mass airflow sensor, my Volkswagon had the same problem. If I drove for more than 30min, the engine would basically bog, and sputter until basically you couldn't go but a few mph. Then you sit and wait maybe 20 min, and it ran fine for another 30min. Almost posotive!!!
