Hi, try a little starter fluid in the throttle body. If this works to start it, you definitely have a fuel delivery problem. You can troubleshoot from there--check for fuel pump operation, if operating, check pressure, etc.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

I'd guess: not enough fuel flow. could be a fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel pressure regulator. No check engine codes? I would think there should be some that would help diagnose.

My car starts but does not stay running


So many possibilities. It could be a fuel problem if it splutters then dies. If it cuts out straight away (no spluttering) would indicate an ignition type problem.

Car spluttered and shut off and will not start again,like it was out of gas


Ok, so do you know for a fact the tank has gas in it, and is the fuel pump running when you turn the key on ?
Have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge ?

98 explorer starts then dies


Been in accident and repaired? Check all sensors are plugged in and all earth wires have been reconnected. Does it splutter and die or just cut straight out? If just cut straight out it will be a sensor/computer fault.

Check the Timing belt. If this car has a Distributor cap remove it and watch the rotor while cranking. If it doesn't turn the Timing belt has Broken and will need replaced.

Turn on the key and listen by the fuel tank for the fuel pump to hum. A common problem is low fuel pressure. It will build pressure when the key is turned, use that fuel, and then the pressure drops. Kind of like when you're using a squirt gun that's getting empty.

Jumped time. If it runs ruff I would do that too much, you could bend a value.

Fairly common problem, you just need a new timing belt.
