Asked by Tiffany Oct 27, 2012 at 05:43 PM about the 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving the truck and the truck stopped and shut off, it won't start like it's not getting fuel to it or
something.  It's not my battery, it keeps cranking when I try but it just won't start now.  I was stopped at a
stop light and it shut off.

Ford has this crazy thing that can go wrong randomly, the fuel pump saftey shut off switch you can check that first, then check fuel pump, filter and fuel pressure regulator. one of those is most likely be the culprit

I'm having the same issue. Replaced the fuel filter, pump working fine ad the fuel cut off switch is functioning as it should. Checked all fuses. Turns over but still won't start.

what happens is ur engine has no where to get rid of the gasses .once u take o2 sensors out it will run rough because it still doesnt have enough plces to get rid of the gasses until u get rid of the cats or replace them. i had same problem for two weeks now and finally took sensors out and it fired.it about time

antiquesrus - I'm having the same problem. Over the past few years I've had the truck suddenly lose power and then had to coast a bit...or coast home as I was nearby. Next day, good as new. This has occurred a few times. Yesterday, I wasn't so lucky. It feels like the gas is trying to make it's way up - but can't. Could it be debris in the line? That's what I always thought in the past. That it fell out overnight. Is it possible that if I can get the tank filled, the pressure of a full tank will help? And if it is the catalytic convertors, what are we talking about in terms of repairs? Thanks in advance for the help!
