Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 137000 miles
My 01 Exploror Sport will not start. I made a few errands for a bout 3 miles. On my last errand I stopped and got out for about 15miin. I got back in the truck and when I turned the key, nothing. Not even the clicking like a low battery would do. I had to crawl under the truck to try to start it off the starter with a screw driver. It turns but it gets no fire and won't run. It just turns wanting to start but with no fuel burning. SO, it turns with no fire and won't crank using the key ignition but will with screw driver on the starter. But there is no smell of gas or exaust.
I just got this car from a dealership and it is an"AS IS" vehicle. I have only had this truck 1 week. It hadn't been test drove since nearly last summer. I changed the oil with 1qt Lucas oil treatment and 4qts Castrol Syntech Blend 5W/30. Plugs and wires were replaced 2 days later.
I'll be tearing into it tommorow and testing the alternator and starter. Then I'll check the fuel filter for clogs and the fuel pump relay before going into the fuel pump.
Please let me know if I'm on the right track or if I need to check anything else. Unless you know what the problem is already.
I live in northern Arkansas but HAVE TO LEAVE MONDAY OR TUESDAY for college in Tulsa, OK. It's a 4 hour drive and I can't miss going to college again. I can't afford to donate much cause I don't have but $50 in my account and my school is paid for by my GI Bill. That's the only reason I can go to college. So I need an answer for the cheap price ASAP!
have the same problem?
