2001 Ford Explorer Fuel Pump
Your 2001 Ford Explorer depends on a fuel pump to send gasoline to the engine to keep it running at full power. Most fuel pumps are built to last 100,000 miles or more, but they all eventually fail. If your Explorer starts losing power or the engine begins to run rough, you may need a replacement, and it's simple to find the right replacement Ford Explorer fuel pump at AutoZone.
Symptoms of a Bad Fuel Pump
To check your Ford Explorer 2001 fuel pump, watch for sputtering or rough engine performance. Also, be aware of whining noises in the fuel tank and stalling or surges in power as you drive. When the pump dies entirely, your Explorer won't start at all. If you notice these warning signs, locate a matching pump based on the year, make, model, and engine size of your vehicle.
Replacing a 2001 Ford Explorer Fuel Pump
Once you have the replacement pump, it's time to install it. Begin by safely raising your Explorer. Disconnect the fuel lines to the tank, support the tank using a jack and carefully unstrap and lower it to the ground. Unscrew the pump access cap on top of the tank, disconnect the old pump and install your new replacement. Put the tank back as it was, and you've restored your vehicle's pump.
