My mechanic disconnected the security section because my key I use to start the car had the security spot on the key was loose and would not work in the ignition It was going to cost a lot for a new set of keys so he took the security section out for a lot less. As he said an older car does not need security.

Start with testing fuel pressure. Your fuel pump may be bad.
If fuel pressure is correct, have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Autozone (and other parts stores) will do code scans for free.

The replacement alternators may not have been exact. It took three tries to get one that worked on my Windstar.

Purge valve won't cause this. Have the codes read. If you have been trying to get it started for awhile, the spark plugs are gas fouled. They need replaced.

The water pump itself should not cause such an issue. It is, after all, just a water pump. You aren't saying what size engine the vehicle has, so there will be differences between the 6 and 8 cylinder engines as far as configuration goes. My first impression would be that something was disconnected to get to the water pump and may not have been reconnected, or may have a bad connection. Check all the electrical plugs/connections in the area of the water pump. Look for any plug/socket that may not have anything attached to it.

Often times it is a simple fix. Low trans fluid is one of the first things I would check on.

Either a stick or auto low fluid will act up if the fluid is low.

Be sure and check it according to manual. Warm trans fluid and then check it while running and in park.

Hope this helps and is an easy fix.

Common problem on 2001 Ford Explores. The reason why your door handle doesn't unlock the door(can't be unlocked by remote either)is due to a broken spring located on the backside of the door handel INSIDE the door. True that your one(or two) of your small exterior springs on your door handle are broken(will cause your handle to flap) but this IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM. The door locks will work if there is a bit of tension holding the handle bracket up. I know it's hard to explain without pics. but here's the ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS. It's not that hard.......... Remove the door panel, only a few screws and a few more holding trim around exit handle then, pull out "snap in" clips on bottom. With a flashlight you'll see back side of door handle. To get to that area you'll have to remove one bolt holding a window frame. Do that(with window in up position) then slide down rail, out of your way. Now, get back to handle. With your light aimed at the backside of handle left slowly the door handle as normal, and you'll realize(while looking at the mechanism) that tension(pulling down of bracket) needs to occur in order for locks(manual and remote)to work properly. Trust me.....you'll figure it out. Once you do, get a spring(pen spring, 30 cent hardware store spring, any small spring!) and hook one end to bracket and the other end to ANYTHING(OUT OF THE WAY) below the door handle thus, causing SLIGHT tension. Try your locks...THEY WILL WORK! YEAH! Replace that one window frame bolt(try your window...just the make sure), replace door panel and your done. TOTAL COST: 30 cents or FREE(if you have a small spring) Ford dealers will charge $150 to $285! Yikes!
