A bad fuel pump will also make it hard to start.Since fuel injectors are expensive it would be beneficial to have them balance tested to make sure that they are bad and its not a bad fuel pump or pressure regulator.

2000 ford 4.0 explorer cranks but fails to start. It acts like it starts after sitting all night but then only cranks, what is wrong?


Check for spark to the sparkplug. Try a shot of starting fluid as having gas pumping and having the fuel injectors opening are 2 different things. If you have spark, then the fuel injectors may not be working. Quick diagnosis is to use starting fluid and see if engine tries to run. This indicates problem is not lack of spark but lack of fuel getting into cylinders.

I got a 2000 ford focus that cranks but don't starts, fuel pressure is good, good spark but spark plugs are pretty worn out can that cause it to do that?


You only need three things to start an engine.
1) Clean Fuel / Air
2) Compression
3) Spark

One of these is not working correctly. The fuel pressure is good, but the fuel line, fuel filter, injectors, or carb may be dirty or clogged. If the gas has been sitting for a long time, or could have water in it, there is potential for the gas to be gummed up, and it wont ignite. Start with clean, new gas, line, filter, and if it still wont start, move on to the #2, #3 items from the list above.
Move through the troubleshooting systematically.
Remember, you only need 3 things to get it to run!

Good luck

My car wont start engine turns over but doesnt start like ist recieving no gas


Considering it ran fine after pump replacement for awhile then it is probably a fuel issue. Couple things it could be. 1. you could have a ton of sediment in gas tank and it keeps clogging up your pump. 2. you could have blocked fuel filter and or clogged injectors.

2000 Ford V10 will not start. Will start with starting fluid.


Fuel filters don't typically clog from a vehicle sitting.My 1st guess would be the fuel pump(motor sitting stationary has made a contact on the armature corrode).Try thumping the fuel tank with a rubber mallet while someone turns the key on to prime the pump(turn to run,wait 5 seconds,shut off,wait 15 seconds,repeat).This might get the pump moving again.

2000 Ford Taurus turns over but will not start. It has been sitting for about 5 months. It was working perfectly fine, but all it does is turns and turns but will not start the engine. Help!!


Well, it may not be getting fuel. Turn the key to "on" but not start. this will activate the fuel pump.
After a few seconds, then try to start. If it doesn't start, turn the key off. Then turn the key on and pump it a few time---only a few. Take your foot off the pedal and wait a few secs, then try to start again.

It used to be we could "prime" the carburator to get a car going but nowadays cars are fuel-injected and don't have carburators!

Make sure your battery is fully charged. Sitting that long would have weakened it. It could still turn over but not have enough juice to engage the starter fully to get the engine going. Did you try jumping it?

Anytime you plan to let a car sit for a while you should use a fuel stabalizer to prevent the gas from going bad. After you do get it started fill the tank and add some fuel injector cleaner. Fuel injectors get clogged easily when the car sits for awhile.

I have a 2000 ford mustang with a 3.8l v6. Well I know it had been sitting for a while. But anyways when I go to start it, it will try forever to start if I tap the gas while turning the key it will start...


yes your plug wires are bad. this sounds like a fuel system problem (ie plugged filter, flat injector weak pump) a good tune up will take care of it all. the Ford dealer will have all the correct factory parts as well as ford trained technicians to do the job right. also in today's market place you would be surprised how competitively priced they are.

No start


I'll give you a list of a few things that could be causing your problem. However, I think it's most likely a bad ignition module. I looked this up on the web and I see a lot of ignition module problems for the 2002 Escape. I checked the Ford recall list but there was no recall issued for what looks to be a very common problem with the ignition module.

Here are some other things that could be causing your problem.
1. Bad ignition coil
2. Clogged fuel filter
3. Clogged air filter
4. Clogged fuel injectors
5. Bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and /or rotor.
