2001 explorer sport , fuel pump? vacuum leak? 619 scan tool data provided, any suggestions/solutions


The fuel pump is suspect but I believe there's also a fuel filter inline on the underside of the drivers side chassis. Fuel works off pressure so if the filter is clogged, the pressure remains between the fuel tank and the filter. Once the fuel has siphoned off between the filter and injectors, it dies but because there's positive pressure at the fuel pump, it won't come on until the pressure slowly seeps past the clog after hours. It's worth a look!

During cold weather car will start and die as if not getting gas. Once started all is good.


Try letting the key sit forward for a few seconds, maybe 10-20. Allow the fuel pump to catch up. Just a thought

I ave a 994 pontiac, bonnieville. about a week


there is probably a dead spot in the fuel pump,and when it is hot and you shut off the car it will not run.Next time the car does not start,bang on the gas tank with a piece of wood or spray some starter fuel in the throttle body. if it starts,it is a fuel problem.
use a spark tester to see if there is spark as well.ignition modules and coil packs are common on those cars,as well as the EGR valve getting stuck.that will cause the car to idle ok but die out as soon as 2500 rpm is reached.

the problem is your ignition switch.

the connection with the start contact is sometimes missing.

if you want to save money, you can trace the starter wire and hook up a push button wire to start your starter. the other lead of the wire goes to the ignition switch to from the " on " lead so that if you turn off your key, there is no accidental starting of your engine.

tnx 4 using fixya,
