Q: Turns over but won't start on 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Hello, my 2002 Explorer Sport Trac was running smoothly then all of a sudden won't start. It acts like it wants to turn over but will not start. It is not a battery problem and it has gas in it. Just wanting some ideas before I go get it looked at. Thanks.

Your engine is either missing spark or fuel. In theory could also have a significnat exhaust restriction or air intake issue. But probably a spark or fuel issue.
My 2002 Ford sport trac has the same problem. It turns over but is not getting gas to keep going . If you find out what's causing it let me know mines in the shop now gas is half down and it hasn't done it in front of the repair man of course so they don't know what it is
