The other day I went on an errand (10 miles). Came home and decided to go on another short errand! When I tried to start th Explorer it acted as is if it were fllooded and wouldn't start! After 3-5 attempts it started! I ran my errand and was ready to head home when I had the same problem! This time it took 10-15 attempts (pausing between attempts) In 30 minutes it started! When I got back home a neighbor of mine said I have a "fuel pump" problem! Please advise!

Hi:
It could be a fuel pump problem. You need to check pressure. Go to the site listed below. A video will show you how to do it.:

Most nationally recognized parts stores will lend or rent the pressure gauge to you.

Let me know the results. If the pump seems good, we'll move on to other things.
