No. It did not start after jumping it. Samething happened. No change at all.
And its a 4.0 EFI not SOHC so not a timing chain.
I wonder if the starter is not engaging while under load like pitbulldell said.
How could I tell if its seized?
I am uncertain on the Explorers, but don't some vehicles need to have the starts shimmed. Also, not enough power getting to the starter would make it not turn.
In my class we rebuilt a starter, and it didn't work, the pole shoes would move (old style Ford Starter BTW), but no spinning. So we went through it again, nothing was wrong, tried again, and still nothing.... Then we switched the jumper pack we where using, and bam it worked great.
