Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer. I'll be driving and then it seems as though their is no gas getting to the engine you can push the pedal to the floor and nothing,then it dies. I can wait for around 5 minutes and it will start right back up and may not do it again for several days(I only drive this vehicle around town maybe 50 milers a week. The fuel pump has been replaced ,as well as, the fuel filter,every oxygen sensor has been replaced,max flow air sensor replaced and resistors cleeaned and still the same problem. My dad thinks it may be the fuel pressure regulator.

    The easy step in finding out would be to connect an OBDII tool to get the DTC code. In a case where the engine stalls a code is saved in the ECM module. You should have a scan done.

Could be the fuel pressure regulator or possibly the throttle position sensor

Engine will turn over, but will not start


Suggestion, don;t try and start the car with the gas pedal pushed to the floor. Asking for trouble in the future.

Could be a fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.

Check engine light on? If so, Have the code read/scanned at your mechanic, or your local auto parts superstore.

It started, when i put it in reverse it died. now it will not start.it turns over and acts like it wants to start but wont. there is gas in it.


Engage the "clear flood mode" by holding the gas pedal to the floor while cranking. This cuts down on fuel delivery to clear a flooded engine. As the engine starts and runs, let up on the gas.

Need a 1996 1500 chevy 305 EXPERT!!!! ONLY!!!


Take an analog ohmmeter, remove connector from TP sensor, and touch probes on terminals of sensor, try combination of 2 until you see reading increase as gas pedal pushed & decrease as pedal released by someone, while engine off, and key off.. Have them slowly, & gradually push pedal, as you watch meter. Reading should increase slowly & gradually as well. If you see it climbing, then quickly drop off, then jump back up, it's faulty. Try to concentrate more on the position of gas pedal where you experience the engine cutting out. Costs nothing to try it.
