STARTS UP BUT DIES OUT IN A MINUTE.

2000 Ford Explorer • 140,000 miles

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer will start but will not remain running. I have 16 psi fuel pressure, tank drained and fresh fuel put in, throttle position replace along with idle control.

Key on engine off-should read 55-65 psi-yours is too low @ 16psi-

Clean the idle air control valve and the MAF sensor and see what happens-Do you have a check engine light?

The idle air control valve has been changed and the check engine light does not come on.

Does it starts back up when it stalls or you have to wait?

Also check the exhaust system if its clogged-up

What do you mean by "back up" and the exhaust appears to be fine.

A clogged exhaust will cause the engine to stalls due to excessive backpressure.

I expect my suggestions be answered in order for me to help you otherwise you don't need us
