mad Explorer won't start

Suv ran fine. Went out to start and it just turns over and won't try to start.

Anybody familiar with this problem?

Could be a battery, starter, or fuel pump. Or anything in between. Test your battery first.

Re: Explorer won't start

If it cranks over, your battery and starter are fine.

Either it's not getting fuel, or it's not getting spark.

My first guess would be the cam position sensor, which tells the computer when to fire the spark for each cylinder. It is a notoriously troublesome component.

Thanks, it was turning over, had spark, found out it was a air bubble in the fuel line, popped-it open, put it back together and she fired up.
