Explorer won't start.

Asked by Aug 18, 2017 at 02:16 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2002 XLT explorer slow starts, clicks at first, when gas
is pumped tries to start. Sometimes it does, sometimes it
won't. Battery is charged, terminals are clean. Any ideas
what it could be?

sounds like you have a fuel pump issue, start with checking the fuel pressure. most auto part stores carry inexpensive fuel gauges. if your not sure how to use one, you may ask the store clerk associate where and how to connect it properly and check the pressure

Japaxx: it sound like a starter
