cranks but does not stay on
I have a 2002 explorer xls. All interior lights work.
Exterior lights work. Vehicle will crank. Sometimes
will start for about 5 seconds then shuts off. I
used starter fluid which helps for a bit but itnwont
seem to stay on. When it starts and i rev it. It
seems to just shutdown and wont start again until
starter fluid is added. What may cause this?
Alternator? Injection system?
Any lights lit up on the instrument cluster, like a check engine light? If not, might be a weak fuel pump. Check for fuel pressure
Yes check engine and door ajar have been on prior to issue. When it starts amd i push on gas it shuts down
