Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Last drove vehicle (98 Explorer) two weeks ago. Indicator shows 1/2 tank of gas. Truck will not start. It cranks at very good pace but does not seem to get fuel or spark? Vehicle is in the drive, parked on a slight uphill attitude. Have added additional fuel but same result. Does this vehicle have an automatic fuel shut off and where is it located?

YES, the fuel cut off switch is located on the passenger side of vehicle. remove the side panel and on the firewall you will see a small black box with a red button, press red button down to activate. turn ignition on and you should hear pump turn on for a quick brief second.

2004 Chevy Cavalier - car cranks over but won't start


Well, let me try to say this without being too offensive.....
Your car only quit running on you once. I find it really hard to believe that all of the parts you replaced so far, needed to be replaced to get the engine running again. It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that all of these "failures" would occur all at the same time.

You would rather pay for $500+ in parts that the car apparently did not need, than to pay to have it towed to a shop where they have the knowledge, training and equipment necessary to properly diagnose the vehicle and get it running again? And now you want someone to tell you what is causing the problem with your vehicle without the benifit of any diagnostic testing?

There is NO WAY that ANYONE can accurately tell you what is wrong with your vehicle without following the correct diagnostic procedures recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. The most anyone can do online without proper diagnosis and testing is GUESS! You seem to be doing that very well on your own.

1999 blazer wont start??


Your battery is either faulty or ther is a parasitic drain, have it checked out at parts house. With a good battery installed, spray some starter fluid into intake housing. If it starts, then dies, you have fuel pressure/delivery problems. Can you hear the fuel pump run when you turn on the key? Hope this helps.
