I have a 97 ford explorer 4.0 185,000 Vin code E overhead cam version engine was replaced at 100,000 on a recall by Ford brand new bullet. Drove it down to get mail Monday came back parked now it won't start. Fuel is at half a tank, on level ground,
have pressure at the schrader valve, sprayed starting fluid in the throttle body won't fire. Replaced the coil still won't fire. Checked 25 amp fuse 19 in side panel and 60 amp ignition fuse in box under hood on drivers side. Both are good. Battery at 12.2 volts and harness coming to coil has 11.9 volts on posts 1 and 4 with the key on but nothing in 2 and 3. Pulled a wire off of the coil and does not seem to be getting any fire. Replaced fuel filter about a year ago when similar problem arose but I got it to fire with the starter fluid then. All other accessories work. Lights blinkers cdplayer power windows door wipers blower motor ac. So I don't know if it could be computer related. Unless the signal coming to the coil is messed up. Any help would be most appreciated. Or I may have overlooked another fuse somewhere or something up on the intake. Replaced the thermostat about three weeks ago and had the top plastic cover off of the throttle body assy but dont know of any other things I could have left unplugged under there. Not that much to unhook to replace the thermostat. Thanks Jeff
