I had this problem with my 2002 Explorer. After driving it awhile, I would shut it off and it wouldn't start. When trying to restart it would turn over but wouldn't start. It also would start after sitting awhile. Took it to Ford and at first they couldn't find the problem. What I realized, it had to be over 90 degrees out. Took it back to ford when it was hot out and they found that the fuel pump didn't have full pressure when it was over 90 degrees. They replaced the pump and haven't had any problems since.

I'm having the same problem with my 2000 Ford Explorer, except it happened just that day. Took it to the mechanic and they don't know what it is. I see that this happened a while back...any insight you could share would be greatly appreciated.

After some trial and error, I began to remove the fuel pressure sensor and discovered one of the lines had a break in it. I believe when it got hot, the gap got larger and the fuel mixture got too rich, as the sensor was calling for more pressure from the pump. Replaced the sensor and the line, Problem solved. I got the car cheap because the previous owner couldn't figure it out. Glad I stumbled on it.
If nothing else is working, check those lines!

As of today- the day of the posting. I have the same problem , I bought a brand-new Starter and a new battery(the good one)No luck! just a click each turn of the key !! I have straced the wire for any short in them. I'm stuck!! I think the starter gets stuck by the flywheel.. but not sure

I have a 1998 mercury mountaineer and about a month ago I went to go somewhere and it would not start. Then later on in the day it started. It never did that again until last week then everyday it seemed to be a hit or miss thing so we had the fuel filter changed and a new battery put in and it ran fine for a few days but then the next day it wouldnt start. Yesterday It wouldnt start and it ran fine the day before then we tried it lastnight ,started right up and we drove it with no problems then this morning wont start...we tried jumping it but it still wouldnt start. Does anyone have any idea what this could be????

Check your crank shaft position sensor. If you get under the car and locate the crank shaft you should see a plastic piece with 3 bolts that brushes up against the crankshaft. You will see a plug going into that piece. Give it a jiggle next time it wont start then try to start it again. I had the same problem with my 97 explorer and it always works. However, If you go to the auto stores to get a new one they will give you something that looks nothing like the existing sensor. Still trying to figure that one out.

I recently notice that my 02 explorer is hesitating to start. I have change the battery out I even went way over the cc amps I would figured that would resolved the problem due to it had a under rated battery in it but the problem is still there. It sounds like the fuel pump life is near for it but don't want to replace fuel pump if its not that.
Would appreciated if any one has had this same problem would let me knw wat they did to fix it.

Replaced my fuel pump, battery, and several other parts it is not any of them it is still not starting every once in a while. I plan on checking the fuel pumpl lines like that other post said he did. Good luck.
