CRANKS BUT WONT START

2000 Ford Explorer • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 150,000 miles

When I crank my 2000 Ford Explorer it cranks normally, but the engine will shudder and won't start unless I give it a lot of gas. Is this a fuel pump or could it be something else? Thanks

You need to test the fuel pressure and system to determine if it is the fuel pump or other fuel related problem.

A bad engine coolant sensor, MAF or some other sensors can cause the problem as well.

If the MIL is inicating, get a scan done to retrieve the trouble code to find out if it is related to the difficult starting
