Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Two things to look at. A faulty fuel pump or a faulty coil pack. If the fuel pump is faulty there will be no fuel to burn. If there's a good fuel flow then the coil pack can be faulty. If the coil pack is faulty it tends not to give current to the plugs. Have the two looked at to be sure what part needs replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Went thru a flooded road about 8"deep stalled out


You filled the cylinders with water. You will need to remove all the spark plugs and crank the engine with them out, to push out the water. you will also want to replace the air filter as it is probably saturated with water.

Car turns over but does not start. Battery good


If it over heated, could have bad head gasket's, fill radiator with water, crank engine with radiator cap off, if water is push out of radiator while cranking, bad head gaskets', also remove spark plug's, crank engine if any water, bad head gasket, also when spark plug's removed, check for any water on them.If there is any water on plug's, bad head gasket, also could try doing a cylinder compression test, if bad compression, head gasket, no compression, wont start that way.

Wont start


Use a spark tester and plug it into the wire and plug...turn engine over and see if there is any spark. If there is take ether and spray it into the air intake and see if it will start...after all of that if no start let us know what you have done, and ask again.

1999 ford Explorer 4.0 v6 4x4 will cranck but not start has spark


Honestly it's probably just dirty spark plugs. Did you pull any of the spark plugs and inspect the tips for build up? A couple things to remember:

1.) If the timing chain broke, the valves wouldn't be opening so you wouldn't have any air coming out of the exhaust during crank. You said it smells like you're getting fuel, so I'm assuming that means you're smelling the exhaust fumes, right?

2.) The crank sensor tells the ignition system when to send a spark to the plugs. If you're getting good spark, it's unlikely that the crank sensor is faulty.

If it's too soon for spark plugs to need replacing, check your sensors. A faulty oxygen sensor for example could cause your engine to run 'rich', resulting in faster crud build up on spark plug tips.

MY ALTERNATOR WENT OUT HOW DO I REPLACE IT?


Is your engine turning over when u turn the key on? If the engine is turning over (also called 'cranking over'), then the battery is fine. If the battery loses it's charge while driving, then it would be the alternator, as that is what charges the battery. So, if your car won't start, but the engine cranks over, you have to check to see if there is spark at your spark plugs, if there is, u have to check to see if gas is getting to the spark plugs. Let me know what u find.
