No its not too hard if you have some mechanical ability. What you have to do is lower down your gas tank, once it is low enough you undo the lines and wiring that are going into the sending unit. Then you can pull the tank out and remove the sending unit. Your fuel pump is attached to that. Remove and replace it then reverse the removal procedure and you will be on your way again.

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.

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.

99 Ford Explorer V6 no power


You mention no check engine light, and all the work you've done leave one solution; Your catalytic converter is clogged.

When you replace you catalytic converter your issues will cease. This is a very common problem, and a simple fix.

I hope this information helps and I wish you luck with your repair.
