Explorer 2008 Eddie Bauer, 4.0. Problem will not start after a starter change??
Explorer 2008 Eddie Bauer, 4.0. my starter went last week. had car towed to
garage. changed starter. Now starter turns properly however the car will not
run. as if no fuel?? checked pump, relay, fuse,fuel pressure -all ok!! tried a
different key-same thing. Verified the rpm for movement when trying to start
car and it is moving up and down so computer is recognizing... there must be
some type of procedure to follow once battery is disconnected and new
starter is installed?
Were now at a point of where guessing is of little use for auto service. You confirmed fuel pressure in PSI.. Confirmed rotational speed at crank 200+ with scanner.. computer is displaying all history codes and or freeze frame Data and the vehicle ran perfectly prior to the starter motor being replaced?
correct......the last hope of simple solutions is to locate and press the fuel reset button??...any other solutions are welcome...
however i am wondering? if fuel pressure is good? then reset button for fuel inertia switch is not relevant?
is there any such thing as a "fusible link" to fuel or starter?
That's correct if fuel pressure is good... forget the inertia switch. have you tried spraying a small amount of starting fluid into the throttle body to make sure the 4.0 has spark plug ignition? also CKP display no codes and will produce a NO start was this disturbed during starter replacement check this My first suspect!
where is the crank shaft position sensor located? and how should I proceed to verify the CKP?
Basic overview. 1. To test if it your crankshaft position sensor is working properly, you have to test the voltage output. Once that is done, you can compare the readings with manufacturer specifications. 2. Wiring the Multimeter If the voltmeter is equipped with needle probes, the wires at the sensor connector need to be back probed. 3. Set the Multimeter Set a digital multimeter to the AC minivolts range and crank the engine. A normal reading would be 200mV, but again this should be matched with manufacturer specifications. In case the car’s manual states a resistance value, you can check the sensor without having to crank the engine as well. 4. Set the Meter Set the meter to ohms and check the resistance with what is specified in the service manual.
still no success...need a few more suggestions??
Wait did this engine ever run for you? and also you have the correct RFID KEY right? Only three possibilities, Ignition, Fuel, Compression / sealing. Check for spark again and at the right timing interval, confirm fuel pressure and injector pulse at correct time, and that the engine (hardware good valves, etc) can seal the mixture.
will go back and verify the spark issue...found one spark plug with a crack, and know ill verify and replace all the others. Key is good, fuel pressure is good, pump is good, relay is good, fuse is good. the last thing i recall is trying to boos the truck not being 100% sure if the starter was at fault and or that a boost may possibly help juice start the truck. I recall some mild smoke from the starter area when i did this?? possible that the computer may need reprogramming if the surcharge may have created a default shut down???
