Customer Question
When I am driving...

When I am driving my 1994 ford explorer it will shut off. it has had three fuel pumps installed by mechanics but is doing the very same thing. it will start again after it cools down.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

There has been three new fuel pumps put on it by mechanics

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Explorer yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am not fixing it myself two different mechanics have replaced the fuel pump twice

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No open for suggestions because it is getting expensive

Hello, when it shuts down and wont restart, do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail? Are there any diagnostic trouble codes stored if you checked them with a scan tool? When it wont start does the check engine light come on when the key is turned to on and go out when cranking?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
