Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 95000 miles
My daughters 1997 Explorer cranks but will not start. The battery was run down attemping to start it. I bought a new battery and the next day the same thing happened. I also replaced the alternator since the new battery was run down due to continued attempts to try and start it. Yesterday I was told to remove the IAC valve and clean it with carb cleaner. I replaced it after cleaning and the truck still didn't start. I checked to see that fuel was present via the Schrader valve on the fuel rail and some gas did squirt out. I'm out of things to try and don't want to get ripped off by taking it to a Ford dealer. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
