Hi, You may have put too much in for the amount of gasoline you had. Or when you put it in, the truck was about to not start anyway. In other words, if you put it in and then the truck did not start. You would not have given enough of an opportunity for the Cleaner to get to your injectors.
If you put it in and started the engine successfully and it worked for a bit and then shut down. Then there was to much.
Here is what you can do hopefully under certain circumstances.
If there is hardly any gasoline in your tank. Get a 5 gallon gas tank and fill it and put it into the Pathfinder. Then get some more gasoline and do the same again. That should dilute what is in the gas tank.
Then crank the engine enough to move the old cleaner out of the fuel injectors. The pathfinder may then be flooded so just leave it alone for 1/2 hour and then try to start it again. It may still require quite a bit of cranking. So you will want to give it a rest and not push the starter motor.
It the original problem was a clogged injector. Well, It ain't clogged now. Hope that was it.Hope this helps. Of course, you can keep me posted. I don't mind at all. Happy New Year,
Mark

It's possible that all that cleaner loosened debris in the gas tank and clogged the fuel filter. If your truck has an external filter replace it. If it still wont't start, try somestartingfluid sprayed in the throttle body or air intake. Was your fuel tank full when you added the cleaner? And did you put two bottles in at once? Two bottles in a less than full tank may have contaminated the fuel so much that it wont burn.

Where is the thermostat located on the 2000 ford expedition eddie bauer model - blowing cold air, had hard time starting today because temperature is about 20 degrees. no oweners manual


During the winter, try using a higher octane gas. it fires off quicker which will start the car faster. Put about 1/2 tank of high octane, this will also clean the valves and injectors. I usually put a bottle of octane booster in my 2001 expedition 2x's a year. It has octane rating of 109. only one bottle per full tank. t sounds like it just needs a cleaning. If you can stand the cold weather, clean your throttle body which will make a big difference. Follow the top radiator hose from the radiator to it's ending point, that is your thermostat. Can be aggravating to change.
