Default 2000 ford explorer no start/no idle

Will only start or run if you keep it alive with the gas pedal. Once warmed up it will run like normal.

Check engine light has been on for months stating evap code. No sensor codes, etc.

5.0 v8.

I fucking hate this price of shit, Ford they circled the problem.

Well let me guess is engine light ON?

If you really hate ford why you ever had that explorer. Trade in for another brand.


These would be IAC sensor or EGR stuck open.

Yes the engine light is on, did you read the post? I had it ran tonight at autozone and its an evap code.

I really hate that explorer but its not my car. I'll go trade it for another brand that should fix the current issue right up douchenozzle.
