1997 Ford Explorer Question: hard to start
is it a cranks no start concern,or are you having a concern with a normal crank speed but no start?we have had concerns with everything from batteries,ground cable at block loose to fuel pumps dropping pressure. - bmdouble
I have a 97 explorer sport with 212000 miles and I had the same problem, clean throttle body with throttle body cleaner (do not use carb cleaner) - DKFORD

First time stranded , replaced inertia switch and that seemed to work for a few days , then started extended cranking no start , until I let it cool down 10 minutes (if that) and cycle key to 'run'...
the check engine light constantly stays on,and cold starts dont wanna idle at all,but once it gets going,it starts and drives fine afterwards,till the next morning cold start,pleaseee help!!
