Default 1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4X4

Not sure I want to inverst the time or money in fixing this just to sell it. I thought I'd see if there was any interest.


1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4X4
less than 95,000 miles

Ran great a couple years back. The brake lines went and I never got them fixed. Now the truck won't start, I suspect fuel pump as it will run with starter fluid.

Let's start with $2000, any takers???

Crawl under it and smack the gas tank with a dead blow hammer a few times. Have some one turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump, if you dont hear it smack it with the dead blow until you do.
The 99 explorer I drove for a winterbeater this year had the same problem. I put around 12,000 miles on it since I broke the fuel pump loose with a piece firewood in the sellers lawn.

About 2 years for the brakes. It did run until late last fall. I tried to start it periodically to keep the battery charged. When I tried to start it in January it wouldn't. Didn't need the car so I wasn't going to try to do too much in the cold.

Are you offering parts of yours??



I had these pics on the computer already. Not much has changed, but it didn't ever leave me stranded. Just quit driving it when the rear line blew. The front went moving it around in the yard.

Yeah, maybe the whole tank. I drained the tank, but haven't gotten into tearing anything else apart. Waiting for warmer weather.

Its the 4.0L SOHC engine. And I would like to stay close to $2000. Money in your hand and a trailer sitting in the driveway ready to haul it away may encourage me to change my mind.
