Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Ford Explorer 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 325 miles
KK while I have a 2000 ford explorer won.T start it turns over but nothing I have got it started a couple times with alot of boosting and playing with the fuel shut off switch but now that" s not working there is spark and gas is getting to the engine what now?
If you have spark and fuel, it should run unless the timing is off or there is no compression.
I have to start with a couple simple questions. Is the spark to the plugs a good hot blue snapping park or is it more orange or white? Also, I understand you are getting fuel, but have you checked fuel pump pressure at the fuel rail? It could be too low or the regulator may be allowing all the fuel to return to the fuel tank.
Let me know.

As long as you used high pressure hose, it shouldn't. Here is a how to for checking pressure. It is a video and directions. Check it and let me know what you find.
