You can try drilling the lock out. You will need to know where to drill though because drilling in the wrong spot can make it harder to open. Best thing would be to just take it to a locksmith

Wont turn over

Was it coolant that sprayed out somewhere? Have you checked and located the leak? If coolant sprayed all over the engine compartment, probably made it's way under the distributor cap. If water get in there, engine will turn over but never start. Try removing the distributor cap and spraying WD40 all over the inside of the cap and rotor. WD stands for Water Displacement, old trick but still works great .

I tried to open the gas tank (lock) but i stick my key in (also tried the spare) but the lock would not turn. I looked up some toubleshooting and used wd40 in the lock and along the rubber seal outside but...

There is either a small piece of something keeping you from fully inserting the key , the lock is broken, or the lock has been replaced and the replacement uses a different key. On my 2009 Ex250 the key turns 1/4 turn clockwise and is very easy to turn. Worst case scenario, you may have to drill the tumblers out of the lock. Even if you undue all the top screws but the cap will not come off. There is one security screw under neath to keep the fuel thieves from just taking the top off. If you damage the cap beyond use you can always replace it with a Slingshotracing gas cap. You could take the tank to a locksmith to see if they can pick it. Hope this helps.

I try to start it but it wont start it like there no gas going to it and i cant hear the fulp pump trun on and i dont know if it that

When you first turn on the key to "run" you should hear the fuel pump cycle by listening near the fuel cap. (Gas cap) If you don't next you need to see if you have voltage at the fuel pump harness.

Gas cap v star 650

best bet would be to get a new one also remembering how much the dealers charge for there products i would go aftermarket threw partsunlimited, cruiser, or Tucker rocky but the dealer still has to order it for you, all have great quality products at cheaper prices than O.E.M replacements unless your still under warranty.

My 1998 ford explore stop running!

Try rapping your started with a hammer a couple of times. It sounds to me you are having starter problems, not you fuel pump. If this works it may be only tempory and your starter may "freeze up" again. If so, you are probably in need of a new starter.
