Question about 2008 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I have a 2008 Ford Explorer. If I stop to restart after a short time say about two minutes, the vehicle would not start. The engine would not click but everything else would come on. After trying for some time, it would start.

Warning lights dash diagnosticmanuals


Try disconnecting the Battery for 10 minutes or take it to an Autozone, Oreilys, Advance autoparts for a free computer wipe.

Okay, now for the bad news. If the gas cap solution does not work, you have an opening in the Emissions system somewhere.

There is a machine and process called a "smoke test". The special machine hooks up to your gas cap opening and forces a type of tracer smoke into the system. The leak will let the smoke out.

You could have a hole in the gas tank, or Emission lines. Many times an Emission hose will get caught when the vehicle is put on a service lift. If your problem happened after the vehicle had new tires put on it, or any type or work requiring the car to be raised off the floor, the hoist could have nicked a low hanging line.

Where is the ignition switch on a 1997 ford


if it is making a rapid clicking sound while trying to start it, your battery is not fine. you can try to jump it. hook up the cables properly and allow the vehicle to sit for about 3-5 minutes. allow the "jumping" vehicle to just idle. reving the engine will not do anything.

When braking my 1999 ford explorer engine shut off


Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
