Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 121000 miles
car not used for 12-15 months. Engine turns over and will run for about 5 seconds with gasoline squirted into intake manifold. Checked fuses and relays for fuel pump and PCM. Replaced fuel pump because I couldn't hear it come on ----but old one was working when connected to 12 volts. New pump runs for about 2-3 seconds with key on, engine off. Also replaced fuel filter and double checked orientation of filter.
fuel pressure at fuel rail is less than 10 psi. With fuel line disconnected, get 3-4 tbsp of fuel into a cup with starter turning engine.
?Bad fuel pressure regulator? Is this the same as fuel pressure pulsation dampener on this car? Is it
possible that fuel line is plugged with debris or sediment from sitting?
Appreciate any help. Thanks.
have the same problem?
