#26 of 232 95' Explorer that won't stay running
Aug 17, 2007 (10:56 pm)
I have a 1995' Ford Explorer that I just purchased and I can not get the thing to stay running. I was driving down the road one day and all of a sudden it started dying, almost like I was running out of gas. I has my fiance change the fuel pump and the fuel filter and it still is not running. I can start it but when I start to go anywhere or press on the gas it dies out. The RPMs drop and it acts like it is running out of gas. Someone suggested a fuel pressure regulator? I was wondering if anyone has any ideas.

I to have a 1995 explorer that is doing the same thing. i have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, diregardeded the cadalitic converter, ran a fuel pressure test, and replaced the coil pack. i also replaced the air filter. i have also had it tested on a computer, there was nothing there. My next try is the mass air flow sensor. please responed i'm having the same problem.

94 Explorer cuts off while driving down highway. Engine lights comes on, can't give it any gas and then it cuts off. Changed fuel filter. Any ideas on what is causing this to happen. Have only had truck for two weeks.

Well you probably just found out WHY it was for sale.
Hard to say what the problem is via the internet, could be hundreds of things. I think you have to start diagnosis with the basic items (electrical and fuel delivery), although if you assume this problem existed with the prior owner before they sold it......they probably already tried the easier simple things to look at.
If that is a 94 with OBD-1, are there any error codes that were set and remain with the check engine light?

Yeah, I found out the hard way and the sad part is I still have a balance owed on it. I guess I need to cut my losses and buy something else because I've already put $500 into fixing it. Thanks for responding!

most common problem on those are these....
1 - remove fuel filter and try to blow thru it,if you can't,replace it. you already covered this one.
2- ignition module's are weak on these..,does it fire right back up? or does it have to sit for a while,
3 - you may have a crank sensor going bad.you would need to check the injector pulse and spark when it won't start..
this is the most common problems for these symptons..
4 - if you have spark and it won't start,get someone to spray carb spray into the throttle body while you crank it over,if it trys to start,you have a fuel problem or no injector pulse,which means you ethier have a fuel pump not funtioning or a bad crank sensor,and a bad ignition module can kill the injector pulse too and still have spark.

Does anybody have a solution?
#34 of 232 94 Ford Explorer Not Starting after engine is heated up...
Nov 20, 2007 (4:27 pm)
I have a 94 Ford Explorer with 185K miles. Replaced the engine 18 months ago and that engine has about 60k miles on it. About 3 months ago started having some trouble...when I get back in the car after going in the grocery store or wherever, it won't start. It's cranking but not firing up. It happens about 3 times a week where it will run all day, no problems, and then randomly will decide not to start. When this happens, I have to sit and wait. Sometimes it starts back up after 15 minutes, sometimes not for over an hour. I'm not enjoying being stranded. Don't let the gas drop down too low - so I don't think I'm sitting on fumes or sucking up bad gas. I can't imagine what it is...I've worked this car over trying to find the problem and can't seem to get a handle on it. Anyone else ever had this problem with an older Explorer? If so, do you have an idea of what is causing it?
