    1996 Explorer doesn't start when it's hot.

    Good Morning, Budwich, I was in the correct setting but I wasn't measuring the correct sensor. Brooklynbay, I finally measured the coolant temperature sensor and it indicates 2.8kohm at hot (~194degF/90degC) and 45.8kohm at cold (~68degF/20degC). It seems that the temp sensor is functional, do...

    1996 Explorer doesn't start when it's hot.

    I measured the one on the left on this picture (the temperature sending unit) I was supposed to measure the one on the right (coolant temperature sensor), is that correct? I took the picture from previous discussion: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1826480

    BrooklynBay, I measured the water temperature sensor and it indicates 25ohm at hot and 350ohm at cold. The sensor I measured is the one by the thermostat. There is only one electrode, I assumed that the second one is connected to the engine ground. I think that the sensor is a diode and not a...

    thx for the table, I will measure the resistance this evening. The start problem at hot seems to be a common problem of fuel injection engines. I read online that problem occurred on Nissan, Mercedes, Honda, even motorcycles. For the same symptoms it seems to be different solutions. The main...

    1996 Explorer doesn't start when it's hot.

    Thx for the welcome Broonklynbay. I did change the fuel pressure regulator, unfortunately it didn't help. The temperature gauge seems to be find, it indicate the temperature correctly when it is cold or when it is warm... doesn't it mean that the temperature sensor is fined? If not, can you...

    Hi Everyone, I read the problem described many times online but I couldn't find a description of the diagnostic: Let me use other people words to describe the problem: "I have a ford explorer 1996, it always start in the morning, but after driving for a 10 min. and try to start a gain...
