1992 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD. 105000 miles. When I try to start the car, it clicks just once. The engine won't turn over. I have a friend that had a 95 explorer with close to the same miliage. His did the same thing too. He took it to a shop and told him that his engin had to be replaced. I don't want to spend the money to do that. So I was wondering, is it the starter/solinoids fault, or do I have to hae the entire engine replaced?
You aint gotta get the engine rebuilt or replaced, rip off, describe the problem to me a little more detailed, and any problems leading up, one step at a time, will save you 2-4 grand. We'll get it worked out for you, and up and running in no time

I was driving to pick my sister up from school while it was raining. I had to cross a " small" flooded intersection. Since I seen smaller cars do it, I figured I would try. I made it halfway, then it died. That was some time October 2005. Has not started since.
Recently My dad and I tried to figure it out. We charged the battery for a few hours hooked it back up, and it just clicks. I don't think the starter is working at all. I'm not a mechanic, but I do know the basics. I have checked everything else that could be wrong with it, but I can't find anything. I would spend the money to replace the starter if need be. But not the entire engine.
