Overheating Problem?

I have a problem with my 95 Ford Explorer. I can drive anywhere, but once
I stop the car, and try to restart it it will not start. If if pour water
in to the engine, the car starts. I have changed the fuel pump recently,
but I still have the same problem. Someone please help!!!

No mystery; this engine has already adapted to the high gas prices and runs
much better on water.

Re: Overheating Problem?

Its not a good idea to pour water over the engine. It could lead to
other problems.
What happens when you try to start the truck? Does it crank but does
not turn over? Or is it just dead when you turn the key?

Re: Overheating Problem?

It cranks, usually it starts, but when i push on the gas pedal the car just
stops. If i try to restart it, it wont start. I got these codes on the
little coder reader i purchased. Dont know if it is the same problem or
if its time to junk the car. In the morning the car runs good. Thanks
for any help you can provide.

Re: Overheating Problem?

Wow, quite a list!!! How long has this vehicle been neglected? I am willing
to bet that this truck had quite a few problems even before the no-start
condition developed.

Google 'EEC IV codes' and you will find what these codes mean in some
detail.
The usual word of wisdom is to attend to the codes in the order that they
are read, as one failure often affects more than one code. I don't know if
these were all stored in memory or from on demand diagnostics (if you even
ran on-demand diagnostics at all), and whether you listed them in any
particular order or not. You did not mention the engine size either, which
could help.

Assuming that these codes are valid and not some accidental misread, here is
my 2 cents:

332, 335: have to do with out of range EGR flow reading (probably not the
reason for no-start, but a wide open EGR valve would make the engine stall
at idle, so not impossible)
10: cylinder balance test failure (not sure which cylinder -- I suspect that
you misread this one)
122: out-of-range throttle position sensor. Doubt if that's the reason for
no-start, but needs attention.
181, 189: lean mixture (vacuum leak or insufficient fuel delivery - see next
line)
543, 556: seem to point to fuel pump relay (or circuit) failure
600-range codes: various transmission issues - not good news, but most
likely unrelated to your complaint.

Good Luck!
