I had that problem with my 1993 Explorer, it was a vaccum hose. Coming off of the manifold near the firewall of the truck on the drivers side were two hoses that are supposed to be plugged at the end. one of the plugs came out. Have someone start the truck up and put your finger over the hose end and it will clear right up, If that is the problem.

Where is the fuel pump reset switch on a 1999 ford explorer. it will crank with starter fluid but will not stay running not getting any gas

I doubt it is the switch. Hit the bottom of the tank about where the pump sets. A rubber mallet works great. 3 or 4 good blows. I bet your truck starts. Replace the pump.

My truck will not stay crunk after i replaced the starter and the alternator.

What do you mean it wont stay crunk?

If you mean it wont stay running, you probably got some wires in the wrong location, or you didnt hook up the ignition wire.

Dies when drive

My 99 Explorer would not run unless you held the pedal to the floor. Found out ford has a recall on their intake gaskets. If you see what the intake gaskets look like you'll wonder how the motor runs at all. I had that prob for 50,000 miles and I changed those gaskets and now it runs like a new ford.
