Hi,

The fuel pressure with key on is : 35 - 45psi
Fuel pressure with engine running : 30 - 40psi

Hope this helps.

Thanks

General Information NOTE: The pressure regulator reduces fuel pressure to 39-40 psi under normal operating conditions. At idle or high manifold vacuum condition, fuel pressure is further reduced to approximately 30 psi. The fuel pressure regulator is a diaphragm-operated relief valve, in which the inside of the diaphragm senses fuel pressure and the other side senses manifold vacuum. Normal fuel pressure is established by a spring preload applied to the diaphragm. Control of the fuel system is maintained through the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), although electrical power is routed through the fuel pump relay and an inertia switch. The fuel pump relay is normally located in the power distribution box, under the hood, and the inertia switch is located on the toe-board, to the right of the transmission hump, in the passenger-side footwell. The inline fuel pump is usually mounted in the fuel tank. Tank-mounted pumps can be either high- or low-pressure, depending on the model. The inertia switch opens the power circuit to the fuel pump in the event of a collision. Once tripped, the switch must be reset manually by pushing the reset button on the assembly. NOTE: Check that the inertia switch is reset before diagnosing power supply problems to the fuel pump. The fuel injectors used with SFI system are electro-mechanical (solenoid) type, designed to meter and atomize fuel delivered to the intake ports of the engine. The injectors are mounted in the lower intake manifold and positioned so that their spray nozzles direct the fuel charge in front of the intake valves. The injector body consists of a solenoid-actuated pintle and needle-valve assembly. The control unit sends an electrical impulse that activates the solenoid, causing the pintle to move inward off the seat and allow the fuel to flow. The amount of fuel delivered is controlled by the length of time the injector is energized (pulse width), since the fuel flow orifice is fixed and the fuel pressure drop across the injector tip is constant. Correct atomization is achieved by contouring the pintle at the point where the fuel enters the pintle chamber. NOTE: Exercise care when handling fuel injectors during service. Be careful not to lose the pintle cap and always replace O-rings to assure a tight seal. Never apply direct battery voltage to test a fuel injector. The injectors receive high-pressure fuel from the fuel supply manifold (fuel rail) assembly. The complete assembly includes a single, pre-formed tube with four, six or eight connectors, the mounting flange for the pressure regulator, mounting attachments to locate the manifold and provide the fuel injector retainers and a Schrader® quick-disconnect fitting used to perform fuel pressure tests. The fuel manifold is normally removed with the fuel injectors and pressure regulator attached. Fuel injector electrical connectors are plastic and have locking tabs that must be released when disconnecting the wiring harness. fuel pump pressure on 1996 - prev.gif next.gif

    yes, 39 to 40 psi for normal operating conditions
    and 30 psi for idle.

    I couldn't find the readings for ignition on and not running, but it should be in that neighborhood to start the engine.

    Yes, I found 39 to 40 psi for running normally, and 30 psi for idle.

    Initially you didn't ask for the ignition on with the engine not running.

    But, the pressure should be in the neighborhood of the above specs.

96 explorer falls on its face under a strain but reves fine in park


Check your fuel pressure it should be 35-45 psi with the key on engine off.Sounds like you might have a weak fuel pump or a bad fuel filter.

Turns over, won't start


Make sure you hear the fuel pump run for a coupla' seconds when you turn key to on.You might need to push the fuel pump inertia reset button(for collision purposes,it shuts off pump).
Next check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail feeding the injectors.It's like a tire valve,but it has pressurized fuel so be careful, and check only a cool engine with the switch in `run' position,engine not running.

Where is the fuel pump located. Is in the tank its self or what.


On the 96' Ford Explorer, both 2WD and 4WD models, the Fuel Pump is located in the tank. It is serviced by first removing the Fuel Tank from the vehicle. The Fuel Module is on the top portion of the tank towards vehicle rear, at the highest section of the tank.
Be sure to SAFELY release fuel system pressure before disconnecting any fuel lines.

NEED TO REPLACE FUEL PUMP FOR 1996 fORD eXPLORER, V6 4.0. WHERE IS IT AND HOW DO I GET TO IT?


Great SUV, I have the same model; for Ford Ranger/Explorer/Mountaineer 1991-1999 check this procedure to Fuel Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION...
(see Figures 1, 2 and 3)

To gain access to the fuel pump, it is necessary to remove the fuel tank.
  1. Depressurize the fuel system and remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
  2. Remove any dirt that has accumulated around the fuel pump attaching flange, to prevent it from entering the tank during service.
  3. Turn the fuel pump locking ring counterclockwise using a locking ring removal tool and remove the locking ring.
  4. Remove the fuel pump and bracket assembly.
  5. Remove the seal gasket and discard it.
To install:
  1. Put a light coating of heavy grease on a new seal ring to hold it in place during assembly. Install it in fuel tank ring groove.

Fig. 3: Fuel pump and sending unit used on the Explorer and Mountaineer
  1. Insert the fuel pump assembly into the fuel tank, then secure it in place with the locking ring. Tighten the ring until secure.
  2. Install the tank in the vehicle.
  3. Install a minimum of 10 gallons of fuel and check for leaks.
  4. Install a pressure gauge on the throttle body valve and turn the ignition ON for 3 seconds. Turn the key OFF , then repeat the key cycle five to ten times until the pressure gauge shows at least 30 psi. Reinspect for leaks at the fittings.
  5. Remove the pressure gauge. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks.

Hope help with this; remember comment and rated this help. TY for using Fixya.

98 ford explorer cranks but won't run.


it means that the key(s) needs to be recoded to the car,when you did the wheel you wiped the codes out.....the transponders are in the keys.
the car thinks its not you/your keys.

1996 Ford Explorer XLT V6 - will start but stalls after 5 mins.


This can be cause by many things, such as a fuel pump going bad / or is bad, fuel injectors need cleaned / replaced, fuel filter dirty just to name a few. Could also have a vapor lock where the fuel line is running to close to a heat source like the manifold or engine and the heat creates a vacum in the fuel line stopping the flow of fuel. Best bet have a garage repair shop look at it. To many hit and miss causes.

Wont start


CHECK SHRADER VALVE ON FUEL RAIL FOR PRESSURE. IT IS COMMON FOR PUMP'S TO GO OUT. YOU CAN HAVE SOMEONE LISTEN TO TANK FOR A BUZZ NOISE ON KEY CYCLES OR TEST FUEL PUMP CONNECTOR HARNESS FOR POWER. TRY KEEPING AT LEAST QUARTER TANK AT ALL TIMES TO KEEP FUEL PUMP COOL,SOME PEOPLE DRIVE ON LOW AQLL TIMES AND KEEPS PUMP HOT CAUSING PREMATURE FAILURE.

Check this link. Hope this helps:)

http://www.ford-forums.com/ford-explorer/888-95-ford-explorer-not-starting.html

or
Go get an inline spark tester. (Harbor Freight 3 bucks) If there is spark in the plugs then it is probably the fuel pump. Check\replace the relay first. If that not it then your fuel pump is probably bad. If you know how you can check the fuel rail pressure with a gauge to see if the pump is working. You can try to listen for the pump. You have to listen real close. Get inside the vehicle (close the doors)and put your ear to the floor in the cargo area. Have someone turn the key to the second click right before starting it. You should here it pressurize the fuel lines. If you done hear this then your fuel pump is bad. I hope this helps.

Fuel Pressure Problem on my 1996 Ford Explorer (4.0 V6)


Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator is going bad...this will cause the fuel pressure to be high and create a flooding condition. Which in turn will gas wash the motor and contaminate the O2 sensor with excessive fuel. Check fuel pressure with a gauge at the valve you are using to relieve pressure. You can find pressure specs on-line for that particular vechicle. If pressure is high...replace regulator, O2, change oil and reset computer by disconnecting battery for ten minutes...
