Question about 2002 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

1 Answer

My brakes seem to give for a foot or so of travel when creep stopping

When I slowly come to a stop, my brakes seem to let the truck move forward on its own for a small distance. You can feel give in the pedal and steering feels loose for a sec. Never happens if you brake hard or pump once.

Sounds like air in the lines - it'd be worth bleeding the brakes to see if that helps.

Why does my car lurch forward at a stop


Not sure what you mean. When you take you foot off the brake it should move forward slowly. But if it jumps could be an idle problem or a trans problem.

Car won't get drive. Diagnostics say ok. Rev fall down to 2000rpm


It sounds like the torque converter has gone, the engine will still run ok but the car wont drive. best way to tell put the car in drive and take your foot of the brake if it creeps forward then thats most likely the fault.

Other possibility is the fluid the gearbox is to low or the system needs bleeding.

I HAVE A 2001 AZTEK AND WHEN ON AN UPHILL INCLINE STOPPED, YOU MUST KEEP FOOT ON BRAKE OR VEHICLE WILL ROLL BACKWARDS


This is normal, depending on the depth of the hill. This is frequent with standard/manual cars on uphills, they can roll back, but with automatic vehicles they usually have a small amount of throttle, (you'll notice this when putting your vehicle from park into drive with your foot off the break, it'll start slowly moving forward)
Now on the hill, if it's a steep incline your car will move backwards, it all depends on how high your throttle (the car itself) is, and the incline depth of the hill.

First gear


The following test is very dangerous. Do not try this if you are going to let the brake go at anytime. YOU MUST HOLD THE BRAKE DOWN WITH YOUR LEFT FOOT 100% OF THE TIME.

OK. Open the hood and turn on the car. Have an assistant stand to the SIDE OF THE ENGINE NOT IN FRONT OF THE CAR. Next, put your foot firmly on the brake with one foot and your second foot on the gas simultaneaouly. Put in gear iff the brake is all the way down. now torque the motor by slowly giving it gas, while you brake NEVER IS UNDONE. Your assitant is looking at you engine to see if it is moving forward and backward erratically. Now torque in reverse gear.

Hold the brake 100% of the time. With the seond foot torque (giving gas) in reverse. You assistant is looking to see if the engine moves erratically.

It sounds like you have a broken engine mount. If a Toyota, there is a "dogbone" looking mount on top of the engine in front of the passenger in the engine compartment. Notice it does not happen when you run lightly, but it noisey when torqued.
