Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

2 Answers

Starting problem My wife drove it to the store and said it was fine. Then she tried to start it to come home and it just cranked over and never started. A friend of ours says its probably fuel filter/pump. We removed the fuel line after the pump and get an initial squirt of fuel as the key is turned to on. Then as we crank it over, no more fuel comes out at all? Can you help me please? Is it the pump or could it be anti-theft or start system issue? I don't know :(

    my 2000 expedition stalls when running, it will restart after about 5-10 minutes, then the theft light flashes rapidily, also sequencially, 2 long flashes, six short. There is no pattern to the stalls, maybe one then not for two.

Sounds like it could be an inertia switch located above your right foot when in passenger seat i have had the same prob in a 96 a good size pot hole can set it off it disables the fuel pump and makes it seem like a bad pump

If it's the antitheft system, when you try to start it the antitheft light will flash rapidly.

Engine needs to crank over strong and steady to have a chance of starting. Youi said it has a poor crank. Battery may be low or bad. If you get the engine to crank over corrrectly and it srill does not start check fuel pressure, spark and injector pulse.

2000 explorer won't start cranks OK, drove it to the store with no problems got back in won't turn over to start.


Try some starting fluid, if it wants to run then you need to check the Inertia switch. The location of this switch is behind the passengers foot kickpanel.

There is a Reset button that you push and it will reconnect the fuelpump. Please rate my info. You can try the Reset without testing with starting fluid but the fluid verifies fuel starvation as the problem.

Mountaineer shuts off


it might be a blockage in your fuel lines, this will sometimes make your car go into failsafe, because it knows there is gas in the car but a limited amount reaches the carbarettor, this is also why it will sometimes stop while trying to "rapidly" accelarate ( from a red light )
