Hi Guys, I have a 2005 Explorer.
The fuel pump died so I replaced it with an after market,
Everything fitted fine, car started, used it, came home and next day no start.
Thought pump must be dead, pulled the tank again, tested new pump operation by powering up. Worked fine getting power from car, so put it all back together again and it worked.
Same thing, this time same trip, drove for 30 mins parked for an hour got back in drove to get fuel, and drove home, stopping the car each time, 2 hours later moved the car to wash it, then 2 hours later went to put it away, no start. I unpluged the pump and wired it up to run while in the tank and could not get fuel to flow with the rail switch out.
Can’t believe it, got mobile mechanic to run a deep scan, comes up with all these faults, right tow truck to workshop.
Towie hops in and starts it right up. Grrr.
Work shop has it for a week cant fault it.
Go to pick up the car, starts and runs out the fuel in the rails and dies, mechanic can’t believe it.
I am getting a feeling the pump is randomly running backwards.
Does anyone know if this is possible.
I need the car for family holiday and I dont want to get stranded.
Any feed back on thoughts or possibilities would be great.
