i had the same problem i have a 94 explorer i replaces the fuel, pump,
the fuel pump relay, and the fuel pump assembly, after all that work i
still had the problem... ANSWER: it ended up being a $7.00 fuse under
the hood.. mechanic found out wut it was because whenever it was hot
and wouldnt start when you turn the key (but dont start it) when the
lights come on the check engine light was not lite up like it should
be when u turn the key he then realized it was a relay fuse under the
hood related to the computer.. A $7.00 PART AFTER I SPENT $450.00
