First thing would be to replace the fuel filter. Then spark plugs. You may have a weak fuel pump. A faulty fuel pressure regulator could also cause this.

Replaced Fuel filter and fuel pump on my 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. I have no fuel pressure. The voltage to the pump initially is there when I try to start but drops to 6 volts. What is the issue?


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Use a digital multi meter across battery posts, have helper turn key to crank, how far does the voltage drop? Generally it shouldn't drop below 10 volts, that spec is subjective, but, if the reading drops way down there, I'd check the battery and connections.
You could check voltage at inertia switch. That might give you an idea if the problem is before the inertia switch or after?

No power to windows on 2001 ford explorer sport trac


Power loss to the master switch somewhere. I just fixed mine (97 Ford) by bypassing power source from the ignition switch and replacing it with the one running the mirrors. Works fine.

The starter will spin the engine but the engine will not fire. this is happening to a 2001 ford explorer sport trac. the spark plugs are getting fire and when i tried to use starter fluid nothing happened


I hope you didnt spray starting fluid through the mass air meter. If you did, this will cause a very expensive repair. There is a "Hot" wire in there that will be damaged. Please tell me what engine you have, either a 4.0L SOHC or a 4.0 OHV. The issues could be different, depending on the engine. Both need fuel, spark, and compression to fire with the fuel, and ignition timing and the fuel timing is critical.
