Having problems with your 1998 Ford Explorer ?
Starting problem My wife drove it to the store and said it was fine. Then she tried to start it to come home and it just cranked over and never started. A friend of ours says its probably fuel filter/pump. We removed the fuel line after the pump and get an initial squirt of fuel as the key is turned to on. Then as we crank it over, no more fuel comes out at all? Can you help me please? Is it the pump or could it be anti-theft or start system issue? I don't know :(
Sounds like it could be an inertia switch located above your right foot when in passenger seat i have had the same prob in a 96 a good size pot hole can set it off it disables the fuel pump and makes it seem like a bad pump
If it's the antitheft system, when you try to start it the antitheft light will flash rapidly.
